Some sale picks from -50% @ Menlook

Menlook has a pretty wide selection in their midseason sale, just on the -50% range they have more than 300 items. Most of the clothes are from F/W 2012, but I guess the basic looks don’t get old that fast. Here are a few picks that I found good from the -50% price.

Paul Navy Shirt FILIPPA K

Filippa K shirt with Italian style collar for £ 48.88 / $ 78.21

Navarro Navy Cardigan JUST CAVALLI

JUST CAVALLI Cardigan for £ 155.13 / $ 248.20


iPad sleeve from French Bleu de Chauffe, the color is specially made for Menlook. £40.38 / $ 64.60.

Menlook only has their prices in British pounds on their English website so I converted to US dollars myself with 1,60 USD/GBP. They ship worldwide.


Picks from the hypebeast sale

Hypebeast has a some good stuff on their mid-season sale, including jackets, shoes and accessories. I picked a few of my favorites. They also have free shipping for orders over 150$, but note that they don’t give money back on returns. (store credit / exchange only)

Is Luisa Via Roma the best source for luxury?

Luisa Via Roma has a long history as a luxury clothing retailer, and it shows in their selection. The website offers clothes from many of the hottest (and most expensive) designers out there today. The website itself concentrates on the products, and there is not much other lifestyle related content. As a small extra they have some style notes, where you can find products that fit to certain style.

Butterfly Catcher

The website is not the source for affordable casual clothes, but there is often products on sale and the percentage can go high. Sometimes you might find some cheapish high end designs that you wouldn’t buy with the full price.

One big plus for the site is that it offers free shipping and returns. Makes it easier to check whether the price of luxury is worth its value.

Pros: good selection of designers, free shipping, frequent sale

Cons, price level, lack of content

Mr Porter – The gold standard of menswear online?

A brother website of the popular Net-a-Porter Mr Porter seems to have the best of all worlds. In addition to clothes, shoes and accessories they also have a home&tech section.


Mr Porter has their own lifestyle & fashion publication ‘The Journal’, which can be read on the browser.


They also provide style help, and while browsing through their selection a live chat window will pop up to help with your choices.


Browsing through the huge selections on some online shops, a shopper might feel exhausted when having so many options to choose from. Mr Porter is one of the best online menswear shops, because they have chosen only limited amount of items on their selection, and as a customer you can rely on certain level of quality. Mr Porter end of season sale is something to keep an eye on, the discount goes up to 80 %.

Mr Porter can be a bit pricey, you might find the same piece of clothing  cheaper in your local store or another website. But it is a good choice for a customer who values convenience over affordability. Shipping costs can be a bit high, but returns are easy.


+ quality of selection, good service, easy returns
