The entire world of men’s fashion and lifestyle goods is at your fingertips, but a lot of guys still stick to Amazon, J. Crew, and other familiar sites. There’s nothing wrong with those, but why restrict yourself? Each of these online destinations stocks an array of textiles, home goods, and accessories you’re not likely to bump into anyplace else, either online or off. Check them out and broaden your digital horizon.
APARTMENT NUMBER 9
From watches and belts to parkas, sweaters, and shaving accessories, Apartment Number 9 carries well-crafted goods from brands you won’t find in department stores or many other e-retailers. (If you’re ever in Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood, their brick-and-mortar shop is also worth a visit.)
Blankets, camp knives, and enamelware, along with a found-nowhere-else selection of heavy sweaters, jackets, pants, and knits, make this a great destination for men looking for new takes on some of their (or their forebears’) old favorites.
This Boston-based online boutique has a decidedly less hipster vibe than a lot of contemporary men’s shops, which is definitely a good thing if you feel like every guy you know wears the same skinny jeans/flannel/parka combo. Especially when it comes to sneakers and shoes, there’s a lot here you won’t find many other places.
From accent rugs and lamps to barware, ceramics, and minimalist, masculine furniture pieces, TRNK is a New York City-based interior design shop for the guy whose personal style extends beyond the shirt on his back.
You could order some deeply discounted outerwear or camping gear, or book a Peruvian hiking excursion. Whatever your outdoors needs, The Clymb has you covered.
BEST MADE CO.
This time of year, it can feel like every store is hocking the same made-in-China sweaters, button-downs, and jackets. Break away from that sartorial monotony with a visit to Best Made’s site.
BALDWIN DENIM & COLLECTION
With a focus on American manufacturing and an ultra-modern aesthetic, Kansas City-based Baldwin Denim is another must-visit site if you’re searching for threads that will help you stand out from every other dude at the office or bar.
ART IN THE AGE OF MECHANICAL REPRODUCTION
Apart from their unusual selection of sweaters, shirts, hats and denim, Art in the Age carries unique root- and ginger-infused spirits, bags, and leather goods. Basically, lots of stuff guys will dig.
