Shopping Guide for the Man

The differences between men and women are rarely more apparent then when it comes to shopping for clothing. Women relish in the experience while guys can’t wait for it to end. The whole process of trying on sizes, picking colors, and walking around the store is detested by most men. Usually they will buy on impulse, to hasten their exit from the store. The result is a poorly assembled wardrobe.

Ten years ago guys didn’t have any other option than to go through the process described above. Luckily, this isn’t the case today. With the internet, there are MANY options for every level of shopper; whether they are looking for bargains, luxury items, or luxury items for a bargain.

The sole caveat to shopping on the internet is that you need to know your size. Most sites that sell clothing have detailed sizing charts you can use to see if a particular item will fit. To best know your size, go to a local tailor shop and have them measure you. Be thorough; the most important is your chest, waist, hips, arms, neck, and inseam. You can later match these up to the size scales on the web.

Almost every label you can buy at the mall or in a department store is now online. J. Crew, Banana Republic, L.L. Bean, Ralph Lauren and Nike are all easily available on their own websites. Each has a liberal return policy also, so no need to worry about getting stuck with items that don’t fit.
