Men’s Special: Fashion & Brands for Men

  • Blog Post

Whilst the high street tends to be dominated with brands predominantly catered towards women, it can often be hard to identify high quality stores that provide the everyday man with perfectly fitted garments depending on your body type. Do you find yourself not knowing where to start or walking aimlessly round the small men’s section of department stores? There are many well-known and trusted men’s brands that cater for all builds and frames; we’ve listed some of the best to give you a head start!

Brands for Narrow Frames

It is common that men with narrow frames may find it difficult to find clothes that flatter their figures and create shape, instead of opting for un-shapely clothes with excess material which will only extenuate your narrow figure. Dressing to create the illusion of broader shoulders is common amongst men with narrow frames and finding brands that have your requirements in mind makes this process a lot easier and a second nature whilst shopping! Our top three brands for men in this category would be Sandro, Ted Baker and Zara.

Brands that are great for men with larger frames are Boss, Cos, Gant and Gap.

Brands for Long inside Legs

Finding trousers and jeans that fit you at both the waist and length can be a task in itself, especially if you have long legs. Whilst there are many different styles available including wide leg, slim fit and low rise it is important that your trousers don’t have excess material bunching up around your ankles (or rising up above your ankles!) It is astonishing how many men make this style mistake!
