Favorite menswear Brands / Places to shop for men (2019)
Here’s a list of my favorite menswear brands and places to shop for guys in 2019.
1701 Bespoke: Detroit-based custom suits, tuxedos, shirts, overcoats, raincoats, ties and pocket squares.
Allen Edmonds: I love these shoes. They last forever and when you’ve beaten them up, have the company recraft them and get another few years of use out of them.
Amazon: You can buy almost everything here and usually you won’t find a cheaper price.
Audible: Keep learning! I know a lot of you are too busy to read so download an audiobook on your phone and listen to while you’re driving, on the subway, walking or the gym.
Banana Republic: Yes, I own quite a few things from Banana. Multiple times a year they have 40% off sales so I recommend picking up a bunch of things when they’re on sale.
Birchbox Man: Another great place to buy your skincare and grooming products.
Bonobos: More than just amazing fitting pants.
Bottlecode: new skincare business, by a good friend of mine. I’m 37 and have to stay looking young. Highly recommended.
Brooks Brothers: Recently celebrated their 200th anniversary and still gowning strong. Every guy should have at least one of their non-iron shirts. Check our their Red Fleece line for more modern younger styles at a lower price point.
Cole Haan: Great casual and dress shoes.
Cotopaxi: Gear for good. Outerwear, activewear backpacks, etc. Run by 2 good friends from business school.
Everlane: Great quality products for men and women, using the best factories in the world selling direct to customers and cutting out the middleman means, you save money.
Fitbit: I’ve been using my Fitbit Versa since August and it’s definitely helped me take better care of myself by automatically counting how many calories I’m burning, how many steps I’m taking and how well I’m sleeping (not enough).
Frank & Oak: Started in 2012 with the goal to combine classic styles, modern cuts and innovative materials to produce style it’s customers truly get excited about.
Harry’s: Don’t buy razors from anywhere else.
Indochino: Great entry price point for custom suits. Don’t buy off the rack when you can get something custom made for you.
Mack Weldon: Basics such as underwear, socks, and t-shirts. High quality and good price.
MeUndies: Underwear for men and women, both classic colors and crazy designs.
Nice Laundry: Most of my socks are from here. I wear a lot of blues and greys but add a little color with my socks.
Patos Shoes: Fellow UPenn alum started this shoe brand working with local artisans in Peru to make these kick @ss sneakers.
Proper Cloth: My favorite custom shirts right now. I think I might have 10 of their shirts in my closet.
Shinola: Amazing watches, leather goods, audio equipment and more. Plus, I gotta support anything made in Detroit / Michigan.
Sprezzabox: Subscribe to get a box of menswear accessories for $28 per month and add something to your wardrobe every month or pick out accessories individually.
Skillshare: Never stop learning. Monthly subscription with an infinite number of courses: photography, web design, entrepreneurship, cooking, really just about everything.
Suit Supply: Suits, shirts, ties. Great fit, high quality (use only the world’s best fabrics) at a good price.
The Tie Bar: Another company with great quality at a low price. Most of my ties are from here. I also have pocket squares, cuff links, tie bars and socks from here. Soon, I’ll check out their shirts, pants and custom suits.
Uniqlo: Low-cost basics
Warby Parker: Named most innovative company by Inc Magazine in 2016. Great glasses and sunglasses. Now, I just need to find a way to stop losing sunglasses.
Here’s a list of places to shop for your home.
Leesa - Great mattress at a great price.
Brooklinen - High-quality sheets, blankets, towels, etc.
Thuma - “Functional Luxury. For the Indoor Enthusiast.”
