Where to Shop: The 10 Best Stores for Finding Affordable Men’s Style

Finding stores that stock good looking, affordable men's clothing is surprisingly difficult. We list some of our favorites, with specifics on what to look for at each.

Updated for 2018!

The retail world isn’t geared towards men who want to dress well. It’s designed for women and for guys who just want to get in, buy something comfortable and plain, then leave before anyone recognizes them amongst the racks.  If you’re the type of guy who enjoys looking his best and wants to do so without spending a thousand dollars every month at the mall, then you’re at a serious disadvantage. Having a plan and knowing precisely what kind, type, and color of clothing you’re setting out to buy is key, but knowing what stores are best for which items will save you an enormous amount of time.  And every second not spent strolling by a food court or avoiding the suffocating scented cloud that rolls out the doors of Abercrombie and Fitch is time well spent.

This is the short list of retailers that’ll save you time, money, and in some cases… won’t even have you leaving your house. If you're looking for the best place to buy a suit or other clothing, read on for the best clothing stores for men.

1. Macy’s


What it’s good for: Suits, dress shirts, Levi’s, and sometimes jewelry for your significant other.

Macy’s is the bargain department store for guys who care about what they look like.  Their house brand Alfani and the more athletic fitting Alfani RED can be a source for great dress basics.  If you don’t have a ton of cash but need a suit?  Wait for one of their Men’s Wardrobe Sales or monthly One Day sales.  Shop then and you could find yourself paying less than $250 for an excellent Tommy Hilfiger Trim fit or Alfani RED suit, $15 for a tie, and $20 for a decent dress shirt.  But beware the sales people.  Sometimes they can be a little too attentive.

Nordstrom men's clothing

2. Nordstrom

What it’s good for: Nice suits, great in-house brands, sweaters, splurges, and terrific sales

Nordstrom is like an upscale Macy’s.  A quick glance at their brands (Hugo Boss, John Varvatos) and you can tell immediately that it’s going to cost more shopping there.  But their in house brands are superb.  Their more modern leaning house brands like Calibrate and 1901 offer quality and great fits at reasonable prices.  Plus their Nordstrom Trim Fit dress shirts are extremely well put together.  Nordstrom isn’t perpetually on sale like Macy’s, but when they do discount, it’s worth it.

3. Indochino


What it’s good for: Custom suits

You’ve seen Indochino a few times here on Primer.  And if you haven’t tried them, consider it.  With their re-tailoring credit (up to $75) and money back guarantee… you could end up getting a custom fit suit that’s incredibly dialed in for around $300 – $400.

4. J. Crew

What it’s good for: Trim suits, chinos, some casual wear, and some bags

There’s no denying that J. Crew stuff looks good.  But sometimes the prices on the items can get a little steep.  Their Ludlow trim fit suits can look amazing, but you’ll pay for it.  When J. Crew actually does go on sale the selection can often be weak.  They’re outrageously popular and they’ve become a bit of a trend setter.  And they know their power.  For example, there’s not many other stores that can get away with selling a $200 Timex.

5. Old Navy, Gap, & Banana Republic

http://www.oldnavy.com / http://www.gap.com / http://www.bananarepublic.com

What they’re good for: Jeans, sweaters, casual and dress blazers, casual shirts, and finding cheaper alternatives to J. Crew stuff.

They’re all owned by the same company and they each have specific target audiences.  Old Navy goes after the bargain family shopper, Gap is the place for still stylish but still mostly affordable foundational pieces,  and Banana Republic touts themselves as affordable luxury.  Unlike Banana Republic, you can’t buy a suit at The Gap or Old Navy, but you can buy pretty well made blazers at all three.  Yep, even at Old Navy.  Just make sure to take them to your tailor when you’re done, and consider ear plugs for the shopping trip to keep the screaming kids from giving you a headache.

6. J.Crew Factory


J.Crew Factory SportcoatWhat it’s good for: Slim modern shirts, pants, suits, blazers and more for half the price of its older brother

While you can find J.Crew Factory stores at outlet malls, don’t let that confuse you: Their wares aren’t old stock or slightly irregular. The Factory line from J.Crew is a whole separate frugal collection that is a great place for picking up everything from on-point trends for shirts and pants but also surprisingly decent quality sport coats and modern, slim fit suiting.  They do play the price-high, sale-high game, so don’t ever pay full price. They regularly – like, multiple times per month – hold sales ranging from 40-70%.

7. The Tie Bar


What It’s Good For: Affordable modern, stylish ties, tie bars

Buying ties for a lot guys are reluctant necessities, if for no other reason than they seem disproportionately expensive. Why is this tiny piece of cloth more expensive than entire shirts? That’s why I was excited when The Tie Bar came onto the scene. They offer narrow ties, wide ties, silk ties, knit ties, cotton ties, bow ties, you name it, they’ve got it. And unlike a lot of internet tie merchants, there’s no kitschy Snoopy ties to have to sort through to find the good ones. They’re also a cheap place to pick tie bars of different sizes – as they say, good style is in the details.

8. Amazon.com & Amazon Fashion


What they’re good for: Watches, shoes, CDs, and electronics

Amazon really is the world’s largest online marketplace.  You could waste hours scrolling through what they offer, and their “related items” lists seem hell bent on making that scenario a reality.  Amazon Fashion is similar, and more often than not their shoe selection seems to mirror each other.  But sometimes the prices and shipping options are majorly different.  Amazon Fashion usually offers free two day shipping even on top of big sales.

For buying watches, beware third party dealers who just use Amazon for their marketplace.  Either buy direct from Amazon, make sure the purchsae is “fulfilled” by Amazon (meaning it’s stored in the Amazon warehouses and Amazon has put more of their reputation on the line)… or at the very least extensively check out their seller rating.  Don’t waste your time looking for clothes on Amazon.  It’s a chore.

9. Bonobos


What it's good for: Modern fitting pants

Bonobos was founded in 2007 to solve a singular problem: khaki pants that don’t make you look like a 50 year old man. While there are many slimmer options available today, at the time all chinos had a saggy butt, were too wide, and were all-around unflattering. Offered in several fits and a ton of colors, Bonobos offers pants in cotton, wool, linen, and more. They are more expensive than a similar pair from Old Navy, but the proof is in the quality. Bonobos also offers shirts and suiting decently priced for the quality.

Free shipping both ways and 365 day returns.

10. Target

What it’s good for: Sweaters, narrow ties, slim fit basics like t-shirts, polos, and dress shirts, some suiting and blazers.

Target has always placed an emphasis on having a men’s line that’s more on trend than it’s discount retailer competitiors like Wal-Mart or K-Mart. They were the first to offer narrower ties at a price less than $20 when expensive designer ties started becoming narrower and more casual back in the day. They consistently have slim dress shirts and button ups in colors and patterns that form the basis of any solid wardrobe.  In the cooler months, look for merino wool sweaters house brand Merona regularly available for less than $20.  Also be on the lookout for their unstructured cotton blazers – the perfect way to dress up a casual outfit on the cheap.

11. Boden


What it’s good for: Outerwear, blazers, and decent clearance sales

Boden is a bit of a well kept secret.  They’re based out of the U.K., they appear to have a conscience, and their models look so happy they could be intoxicated.  In fact, they just might be a little tipsy.  Beer and wine often show up in the pics, and when’s the last time you saw a couple of guys doing shots in a catalog?  A lot of their stuff is extremely bright, and can get expensive quick.  But their blazers and coats are reasonably priced and full of unique style you won’t find anywhere else.


12. Zappos


What it’s good for: Shoes of all kinds and incredible customer service.

Amazon actually purchased Zappos a few years back (for almost a Billion dollars) but they still feel like separate entities.  There once was a time when buying shoes online seemed beyond stupid.  Don’t you have to try shoes on first?  Not with Zappos.  They carry… everything.  Prices are pretty good too.  The 360 views, videos of employees showing the shoes, and extremely kind shipping policies make these guys one of the best in the online retail business.

13. Overstock.com


What it’s good for: Just checking before you click “buy” somewhere else

My current go-to Navy suit is a Kenneth Cole New York all wool number I bought off Overstock for… $110.  I saw the exact same suit in Macy’s a few months earlier for somewhere north of $350.  Their selection isn’t always the most current, nor is it the best place if you’re of an average build (sizes tend to run in the extreme)… but just check in every once in awhile if you’re in the market for a larger purchase.

14.  Express


What it’s good for: The Express 1mx shirt, trim fit sweaters

After the age of 25 walking into an Express can make you grimace.  The neon, the pounding music, the sales associates with more product in their hair than you’ve used in the last month.  It’s a lot to handle.  But the Express 1mx button up and the non logoed sweaters are worth it.  Get on their physical mailing list and you’ll get coupons in the mail every month.  Despite sometimes questionable quality, the Express 1mx basic button up shirt can be worn with just about anything.  I’ve got four hanging in my closet and wear them all almost every week.  It also comes in two fits, one of which is trim enough that you might not even have to get it tailored.  The sweaters are decent, and won’t make you look 10 pounds heavier.

That should be a good start. Ten stores, some big department stores, some brick and mortar standards, a couple of online stalwarts, and a few surprises.  Good luck.  And may the clearance rack be filled with items in your size.

    Uniqlo in NYC is phenomenal for cheap but good quality jeans/shirts/sweaters/undershirts and Club Monaco has some serious discounts in their sale sections. Unfortunately their suit jackets have functional buttons so tall/skinny crowd need not apply. (20% student discount on anything, sale or non-sale)

      is that just club or both club and uniqlo

    • Reply August 19, 2013


      And I was likewise astounded for not seeing Uniqlo on this list. Perhaps because they’re not quite as widespread. They’re a Japanese company and only have US stores in NYC and San Francisco along with a growing collection of locations in the surrounding suburbs for each. Essentially they’re like what Gap was originally founded to be: simple basics at a reasonable price point. The part that makes them rather unlike Gap (aside from still sticking to that goal) is that they still stick to that and sell good quality clothes without spending much time following trends.

      For comparison I was in there this weekend and picked up a rather good oxford button-down in a classic pale blue for $30. Definitely a place to stop to pick up great foundational items or get something simple that nobody else wants to carry (e.g. a reasonable, solid color t-shirt that isn’t American Apparel hipster-cut).

    I didn’t really start getting interested in men’s style until about a year ago but today about 1/3 of all my RSS subscriptions are “image”-related. During my studies I’ve learned that you don’t have to have a big budget to dress like a grown-up. Here are a few of my favorite places to shop –

    J.Crew Factory – Some of you may have heard of J.Crew’s outlet stores but last year they opened an online store specifically for clearance and Factory-exclusive items. You can only order on the weekend but some of the deals are pretty intense. The downside: stock is extremely limited so the popular items go quickly.

    Blank Label – What Indochino does for suiting, Blank Label does for the button-down shirt. Pick your fabric, customize options like buttons, cuffs and pockets and even specify your exact measurements to make sure you get a shirt that’s guaranteed to fit just the way you want. The downside: it’s all based in China AND it’s custom made so it could take up to 4 weeks to see your order.

    T.M.Lewin – Excellent quality shirts for less than you would pay at Banana Republic. I might go so far as to say the best made shirt I’ve found for less than $100 (some less than $50). The downside: they’re based in the UK so you can’t actually try it on before you buy it. They do however provide full measurements on all their sizes so you can compare with your local favorites.

    Uniqlo – Quite possibly my favorite one-stop shop for clothing and accessories. Fashion-forward Japanese style and solid construction for unbelievably low prices. The downside: their only retail location in the US is in NYC and getting anything shipped is nearly impossible without a proxy (someone local who will buy the items at the store and ship to you for a fee).

    H&M – If you’re really scraping for cash, you can’t find cheaper style than H&M. You might have to compromise a bit on materials but you’ll still look good and not starve. The downside: they’re not in every major city, and there’s no online store.

    Also, if you’re on a slightly higher budget I would definitely recommend checking out a boutique site like Gilt Group or Rue La La. They have daily/weekly sales on brand-name items that will make your brain explode (as in suits by brands from DKNY to Z.Zegna for 60-70% off).

      Regarding blank label: if you think 3 shirts for $250 is a good deal, we clearly have very different opinions as to what constitutes a bargain.

    Great additions! I have a Blank Label shirt and I really like it. Fits great and the materials are solid. I haven’t had the opportunity to check out the NY Uniqlo store yet. Thanks for including us in your RSS collection!


    I’ve never owned one myself, but I’ve seen some good sales.


    I’ve heard good things. I’ve personally never spent $100 on chinos before. How do you like them?

    Raymond, that’s a great point too. In my experience, Goodwill and Salvation Army are really hit or miss, especially depending on the area you live in.

  • Reply February 14, 2011


    I do like H&M. It isn’t high quality, but for some basics that you’ll replace more frequently it’s hard to beat. Their shirts are also the best fitting off-the-rack shirts I’ve ever found, and they art at $14.

    I also have two linen suits from H&M, and I know they’re going to fall apart in the next year, but they have treated me well so far, and I bought each of them for about $100.

    Otherwise, I like getting used items on eBay.

    I have ordered a custom tux from Indochino, so I’ll see how that works out.

    • Reply June 17, 2013


      about 2 years ago, i decided it was time for my wardrobe to grow up. h&m was pretty much my focus to start, but it wasn’t long before i realized that while the store was inspiring my tastes, i was actually finding the pieces to achieve the look elsewhere. i finally decided that the cheap pricetag wasn’t worth equal quality, and literally just used h&m as a catalogue for what i would go buy at lands end & the gap.

  • Reply February 14, 2011


    Does anyone know how good the slim fit dress shirts are at Banana Republic. I’m a thin guy and the 1MX seems to be the best fitting I can find. The only problem is there isn’t much variety outside the solid color shirts.

    • Reply June 17, 2013


      i’m not familiar with banana, but the gap’s slim fit is perfect. absolutely perfect. i imagine that banana would be similar, but likely to be a bit roomier.

    • Reply July 1, 2015


      I only wear Banana Republic dress shirts and they are the best. They have three cuts, classic (awful and roomy) slim fit (I wear these and off the rack they are almost perfect) and tailored slim fit (roughly cut 2″ slimmer). Hit the store on a Wednesday because they usually run 40% off sales.

  • Reply February 15, 2011


    What about the two best places for getting a large selection of steeply discounted designer clothing, Filene’s Basement and Nordstrom Rack? They are definitely the budget-concious and style-conscious shopper’s best friend. Filene’s has a huge assortment of apparel, and Nordstrom Rack is the best place out there for shoes (apparel is more limited). Unfortunately they don’t seel online yet (aside from a very small number of Nordstrom Rack items, like the To Boot wingtips you used the photo of).

    Marshalls, Ross, and TJ Maxx are in the same vein, but while they have more stores, they don’t have nearly as good of merchandise (though occasionally a few gems)

    I also second the recommendations of H&M, thrift stores, and Uniqlo.

    • Reply June 17, 2013


      i always found those stores to be about 4-5 seasons behind the trend. there are certainly great deals to be found in there, but just be sure to keep a keen eye.

    Don’t forget about Tar-jay. Merona merchandise is very good for the price. Tees, polos, socks, belts. The dudes on Styleforum even cosign some of their suits. I’d be curious to hear about Merona’s line of knockoff shoes. Someone should make a blog comparing Merona Timbs, Merona Sorels, etc. to the originals.

  • Reply February 15, 2011



    Good options for sure. My personal problem with those stores are you’re paying what I consider ‘full price’ for discounted items from higher end designers from last season or older. I have a hard time paying $40 for a shirt that is older, but from a designer than $40, at Lands’ End for example, and is new.

    Nordstrom rack is an excellent place to buy ties. I got a Calvin Klein thin (2″) tie for $15. Can’t beat that, for sure.

    • Reply December 17, 2012


       Are you kidding? At Nordstrom Rack you can get $185+ Thomas Pink shirts for $50 or $125 Ike Behar shirts for $40. Just have to be willing to dig through piles for the gems. How about Hugo Boss suits for $350 or Hickey Freeman for $400? You absolutely can’t beat those deals.

    I love this article. Finding a quality mens suit is not as easy as it may seem. The location listed within this article offer mens suits from the affordable range and up.

    It is important to get quality when purchasing a suit, as you DO NOT want to reflect an image that says “Oh Well its a suit” ! Also one that is made of a good lasting material so you can get much wear out of the item. I have suits which I have had for years now and they still look as crisp as the day i got them.

    Really great point! For some guys who may be buying one of their first suits, it’s easy for them to think that a suit is a suit is a suit. There certainly is a difference in quality, but like you say, that doesn’t mean they have to be expensive.

    Wow – to list Macy’s as the nr. 1 store is remarkable. Their suits may be cheap but as a consequence their quality level is generally rather low in my opinion, especially when it comes to suits.

    If you can only spend $200 on a suit, maybe you should look on ebay first or buy from an inexpensive made to measure suit supplier.

  • Reply February 19, 2011


    Gentleman’s Gazette,

    The stores weren’t listed in any particular order. I wholeheartedly disagree that a guy who can only spend $200 on a suit should look on ebay. In my opinion, buying a suit on ebay is an advanced option for guys who REALLY know how they need their suits to fit. With certain things that are very expensive for a tailor to fix like shoulders or armholes, it would quickly become a mess for a guy on a budget.

  • Reply February 20, 2011

    Gentleman's Gazette


    You have a point. However, most men who go to Macy’s and buy their suits do often not know how a suit should fit, and since this is true for the staff as well in the majority of the cases, they likely end up with shoulders that are to wide etc. don’t you think?

    This is a great list (and I frequent some of these stores often) but I’m sorry, they are not cheap enough. I only shop sales. I never buy anything full price. The only store on this list that has sales often is Macy’s. The rest are over priced most of the year, or their merchandise is just plain. In order to really make it affordable and look modern and great look at stores like Zara. They have amazing modern style, but only shop when they have a sale. Their closest competitor Express is often not modern at all, and you have to deal with their stupid logo, especially sweaters. Also, like Raymond, check out the thrift stores.

Me, for example, a 23 year old college student from Minnesota. Do you really think I’m going to stroll into class wearing a full suit? However, what else would you expect from a guy that makes a living selling business clothes? Stores like Macy’s and Old Navy are much more attainable for me. THANK YOU!

    So I have a question..my boyfriend really needs a new suit, and I would like to get him one. However, being a college student, I really don’t have money to spend. I also know nothing about suits, and I doubt he does either. Does anyone have any suggestions where we should go? Also, he’s tall and skinny..about 6’3″ and 180 lbs

    • Reply March 24, 2013


      The best way to go would be something like Indochino. I have two suits from them and really like them. You could also buy off the rack, but he’d definitely need to have them tailored.

      Macy’s is always good , just go when they have a sale. You can get a $500 Alfani suit for $200 or less !

  • H&M isn’t on here. Without a doubt it’s one of the best locations for great, affordable, well-made club wear and suits.

    • Reply June 6, 2013


      I like H&M but the quality is hit or miss. Some things shrink a lot.

      • It can be, yes.

        I never buy the LOGG branded stuff, or any other stuff that doesn’t explicitly have the original H&M logo on it. Very thin fabrics typically do shrink, however their suits and all their linen items (hard to find good, lightweight, affordable linen that fits well) have stood the test of time. I prefer their dress clothes to Express, as they seem to have gone “ghetto-chic” over the past few years.

    The spring is almost over and the summer is coming, so I bought my first dress for this summer. Am I too eager? Let’s have a look at my dress. It’s White Blue Chiffon Sleeveless Dress with Unique Collar and Belt. Here’s the link -http://www.nextshe.com/dresses-c-1.html

    You may say, the new released clothes would be very expensive. Oh, I’m not rich, and I’ll leave it behind if it’s expensive. Actually, the dress is less than 20 dollars. Is it cool?

    The pretension of some of these sites is astounding. For example, the term ‘shirting’ means fabric for making shirts, not the shirts themselves. I suppose that hipsters and people ignorant of the term might …oh, whatever. Drown in your ignorance.

    American Eagle, Pacsun, Aeropostale, JC Penney, and H&M are all good too. Of what I just listed my favorite are American Eagle and Pacsun. I can’t really describe American Eagle clothing. It’s just casual wear–sweaters, t-shirts, polos, button-ups, etc. Pacsun sells more laid-back, Cali-influenced type of clothing like chinos, tank tops, and stuff like that.

    How to Save Your Relationship And Marriage from Divorce or broke up

    An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my husband back to me.. My name is Natasha Johnson,i live in Florida,USA,and I’m happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband .so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce.he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn’t love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{[email protected]}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn’t call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website { http://enchantedscents.tripod.com/lovespell/},if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to “bringing your ex back. So thanks to the Dr Brave for bringing back my husband ,and brought great joy to my family once again. {[email protected]}, Thanks…,,,,,

    Some of the best deals I get all year are at Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale in July because it’s heavy discount on Spring/Summer season clothing. The Half Yearly Sales are also pretty good, but the clothes tend to be out of season (not a big deal for me).

    Hi Mr. Webet, thank you for writing this, it has really given me a good idea of which stores to focus my attention. I am a 24 yr old graduate student who recently lost about 40 pounds while simultaneously coming to the conclusion that it I need to shift my style to a more refined/professional one.

    I have been looking at stores like Blank Label to get some custom made staples (a nice pair of jeans, a suit that actually fits), and I was wondering what you thought of them!

    I absolutely LOATHE OVERSTOCK and EBAY. I am into looking good and a WELL MADE, better than average, good looking suit made from high end fabric from Italy makes me feel good. I feel like I’ve gotten a good deal and have landed on a treasure of a find. THEN, I go to look it up and it’s WORTHLESS. By WORTHLESS I mean it’s a $1000 suit that ebay or overstock is selling for $65. They TRULY DESTROY the value of a lot of damn good suits. And many, many other things. You might say, “well, the suit is still high end. What are you complaining about?”

    The problem is if someone asks about my suit, what i be it is, etc. and they are looking at me like I’ve got it going on- they just happen to look up this suit that they saw and liked so much is “cheap”. They have literally turned almost every suit they can get their hands on into a yard sale piece.

    I had a very valuable sports cars collection before eBay. Now? Worth about 1/10 th what it was. These sites may give you cheap prices, but they also turn something that you found at a discount, not so discounted anymore as they have suddenly driven the value down by 50, 60, 70%.

    I discovered a great business casual brand Marcello Sport at https://justin-harvey.com. They have great shirts that are unique twists on classic designs, thier price point is on the higher side, but the quality is impressive. I bought the Marcello Sport Houndstooth Dress Shirt in Tan and have worn it every week for over a year and it still looks new.
