Everyone wants to look good, but not everyone wants to go out and get the clothes to make this happen. If you’re one of the millions of men who hate nothing more than shopping for clothes, then this is the article for you. With these tips you’ll find exactly what you want, save money and maybe even enjoy the experience. Here’s hoping!
1. Be clear what you want to buy
If you don’t know what you’re looking for, how on earth are you going to find it? How many times have you went looking for a shirt but haven’t even thought about what colour you want or what the occasion is. If you know what you’re looking for, you’re already off to a good start.
2. Know your measurements
Yeah, you might know your shoe size or whether you’re a medium or large in a shirt, but knowing your waist, chest and neck size are also crucial to finding the right fit. If you can’t do this yourself, a store assistant will help you out.
The problem as man is that often we feel the need to buy something that might not fit us just because we’ve spent a certain amount of time in a shop. But there’s no harm in checking other shops to compare prices and also styles. There might be a shop with the same top but in a different colour you prefer, you won’t know unless you try.
4. Quality check
Even if you’re buying an item from a well-known brand, you should still check if there’s any faults like loose seams, missing buttons, broken zips and other things like stains.
5. Try before you buy
It’s worth remembering that just because the clothes are your size, it could be a different story when you try it on. Different brands use measurements differently, particularly when it comes to items simply labelled small, medium and large.
6. Go with someone
Even if after reading all these tips you think you can manage shopping on your own, there’s no harm in taking your partner, friend or family member along with you for a second opinion, especially when it comes to style. They’ll be seeing what you’re wearing from another view point, so it’s worth listening to what they have to say.
7. Ask for help
If you’re really stuck you can always ask an employee for help and clarify any final doubts you may have about the item or the returns policy in store in case you change your mind.
