It’s a good thing to spend as much as you can afford on well made, quality basics, but what if you can’t afford to drop thousands on your wardrobe?
We get it, and so took one of our recent posts – Men’s Must Haves (According to Women) – and found less expensive versions of the highest-priced items we featured.
Some people call this type of post “The Look for Less.” We call it “It’s Not Haute, but It’s Still Hot.”
Here’s some great pieces that look a lot like their higher-priced doppelgängers:
Dark-wash jeans AG Hero Jeans, $185
J. Crew Cashmere sweater, $225
Wyatt Cashmere Sweater, $118.30
Rag & Bone Hoxton Jacket, $1,375
And let’s just say you had a little more to spend on the jacket, there’s always this option:
Leide Leather Jacket, $598
(Still better than $1,375, right?)
Sure, quality can be sacrificed when you go down in price, but other times, you find the same level of workmanship and detail as you do with higher-priced pieces for less money. It’s all about taking advantage of sales, familiarizing yourself with the shops and outlets that sell pricey brands for less, and ensuring you’re still buying quality fabrics.
