5 Must-Know Shopping Tips for Men

Men — shopping isn’t easy. You already know this, of course, but did you know that it doesn’t have to be difficult to wear comfortable, functional and stylish clothing?

To live in style, it’s important to shop for clothes on a site that knows fashion and the latest trends. This is where Shop Big Time comes in, a website that is dedicated to providing men with convenience and high-end clothing fit for any occasion. Here are a few tips we’ve put together to get you started.

1. Functionality Is Everything

Clothes aren’t free, which is why it’s important to buy pieces that wear well with the rest of your wardrobe. This is why we recommend men to start with a blazer, one that is stylish, form-fitting and compliments several different outfits. We carry a large selection of Afazzy, Mantoni and Angelino blazers. These range from sleek and professional to colorful, like our Angelino Mens Blue and Grey Plaid Blazer.

Blazers are essential because they dress up even the simplest outfits. Having a business luncheon? Throw on a blazer. Going on a date? Blazer.

2. Know Your Size

When shopping online at Shop Big Time, it’s helpful for you to know your measurements. Some men find it better to wear denim a size up while others prefer close-fitting pants. The same goes for suit pieces, shoes and everyday shirts. Go into your closet and pick out the clothes you feel the most comfortable in regardless of their looks, write down your sizes and start shopping.

3. The Classic Edge

Shop Big Time carries everything a man needs to feel better about himself and his wardrobe. Some men, though, appreciate the simpler classics rather than trendy outfits. Like anything else you buy, it’s important to only pay for things you will actually wear.

You already know your comfort level with flashy clothes, though it’s sometimes best to leave what you’re used to behind and go for something new. Example? How about a mint green Silver Silk walking suit, a pair of caiman dress shoes or a nice cardigan to compliment the season?

4. It’s All About Shoes

Functionality, sizing and classy clothing are only as stylish as your shoes. Shop Big Time carries hundreds of shoes ranging from exotic leather and deck shoes to cowboy boots and casual footwear. Unlike other clothing you might buy, men’s shoes tend to last much, much longer depending on your lifestyle. This is why it’s essential to find footwear that fits your style (a brown pair, a black pair, etc.) and is adaptive to the situation. A lot of our dress shoes, for example, are sleek enough for weddings and comfortable enough to dress up for a long day in the office.

5. Dare Your Style

Fashion is what you wear, style is how you wear it. But why not try something new, bold and brave?

At Shop Big Time, our wide collection of suits, shoes, hats, pants and other clothing is the perfect way to experiment with your personal style. For more advice and info on special offers, be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram for updates!
