Not long ago, it was just the women who loves owning expensive designer clothes, bags and shoes. Maybe it’s the looks or the prestige of being able to own one, but men have started to join this bandwagon. Many guys are now starting to realize that wearing designer clothing can also have some major advantages as supposed to wearing cheap and low-quality garments.
Of course, there is that special look and style that expensive clothing give to its wearer. From suits, shirts, pants, ties, shoes, belts and other accessories, men are now investing more on items for their closet to be able to get that look they want. Besides, giving a good impression to people through the way you dress is you first step to success. Just imagine going to an interview or business meeting wearing raggedy old clothes. You probably won’t get that job or that big deal because of how you look. You look good, you exude confidence. And when you look confident, people tend to trust and like you more.
But most men are guilty of buying designer brands because they just want to save money in the long run. You see if you are the type who buys your shirt and pants from cheap store, you are aware that they tend to wear out faster and get damaged from frequent wearing. Your tendency now is to buy new ones to replace those dress shirts with holes and trousers with frayed hems. But because you are assured with quality when it comes to designer clothing, it doesn’t matter that they are a bit expensive so long as you can use them longer. Thus you save some cash from buying clothes regularly.
But that doesn’t mean that you have to blow off your entire pay check just because you want to have high-quality and good looking clothes from top designer brands. There are ways that you can do this but still have some money for the rainy days.
1. If you really want to go into brand name clothing but not spend too much, you can do it slowly by buying one or two items at a time. This may take you longer but in no time, you’ll have a closet full of designer clothes and still be able to spend on other important things.
2. You can also go on stores that are on sale. One advantage of men’s clothing is that styles don’t change drastically as compared to women’s fashion. In fact, the classic look is still the best way to go. This means you can take advantage of clearance sales of last year’s designer clothing sold in lower prices and still be in fashion.
3. When shopping for more expensive clothes from designer brands, try investing first on the basic items like suits, shirts and pants. These are the essentials and you can’t go without them. Other items you can buy them in the future if you have more money to spend. Also, stick to the simple and basic colors like black, navy blue and gray so that you can mix and match items from your closet more. Avoid items which may not go with most of the things you have.
