Men’s, Here's How to Build a Classy Wardrobe on a Budget
Male clothing is often more expensive. So, when we, as in men, find a great deal or discount on good brands, we tend to buy whatever we need. If you’re one of those men who likes to be careful about his hard-earned cash then this list is definitely for you.
1. Only buy the clothes you need
You can save more money than you save in a discount by buying the only clothing items you need. Many of us often buy clothing that we don’t need and spend more money unnecessarily.
2. Teach yourself about menswear
The best way to stop yourself unnecessarily spending on clothes is to know what you really need, and to know this you need to learn about menswear. But instead of gluing yourself to the screen for hours, start slowly and improve your knowledge a bit each day until you find your style and work out what you need to build up a nice wardrobe.
3. Create a list
After deciding on your style, now it’s time to check your wardrobe to find out what it needs. Generally, what your wear is strongly influenced by your job and the area where you live. If you live in a place with a mild climate, your needs will differ from a man who lives in a cold climate. But there are some items that every man needs to have in his wardrobe, like a good suit for special occasions. Once you’ve identified what you need, it’s really easy to create a list and decide where you’re going to spend your money.
4. Don’t fall for the hype
When shopping you’ll see many sales, especially during the holidays and mid-season, but this is a trick. If a merchandiser gets you in with that one super deal, there is a higher chance that you’ll end up buying some regular-priced items as well. You may go in because there's a great deal on shirts that you’ve really wanted to buy for a long time, but then you see that nice tie to go with it and a vest to wear during cold days, and before you’ll know it you’ll break your bank account.
5. Buy interchangeable pieces
Basically, an interchangeable wardrobe means items you have raked together which go together every time no matter what combination you wear. You’ve already checked your wardrobe, taught yourself about the basics of male fashion, and created your list. Now it’s time to buy only matching items with your clothes. With only 2 jackets, 5 shirts, 2 ties, 2 trousers and 2 pairs of shoes you can create 120 outfit combinations.
These are the major starting points for anyone who wants to build a classy wardrobe. In the long run these ideas will help you save money and prevent you from spending on clothes that you wear once and forget about afterwards.
