Looking good makes you feel good but looking at price tags is somewhat reminiscent of a Stephen King novel. In times of economic hardship looking good is more difficult than ever. However, there are certain high street stores and online shops where you can buy high quality clothing for reasonable prices.


The high street fashion chain has helped owner Amancio Ortega become the third richest person in the world, and when you browse through their shop it isn’t hard to see why they have yearly revenues of €7billion. Many associate Zara with female clothing, which is a huge advantage to those men who shop there, as the chances of bumping into someone wearing the same Tee as you are slim.

With blazers starting from £45.99 and some of the best, as well as cheapest, jeans on the market, Zara is the perfect place to shop for evening wear. They also have an extensive range of suits and shoes that wouldn’t look out of place at a social gala. Need more proof, just look at how cool Ortega is; despite being worth $64billion he still eats with his employees in the canteen and is one sharply dressed man. Also, nobody quite does a sale like Zara, so if you need some new threads hit the high street.

With prices starting at £40 the clothing is more than affordable, while their range of shoes is simply sublime. With designs changing each season you can also look sharp regardless of the weather. What’s more Boden vouchers offer 20% off on all of the winter range – check it out, the winter range is class!

Kenneth Cole

If you are looking for a new suit you know you’re going to have to spend a bit of dollar. You can go cheap but that’s doing yourself and the whole premise of wearing a suit an injustice. US designer Kenneth Cole is where you want to go for a brilliant suit, which comes with a brilliant receipt that will not need to be hidden from your partner. With some of the sharpest suits at prices that do not exceed $400, it’s inexcusable to ignore Kenneth Cole. The original outlay may sound like a lot but you have to take into consideration the shelf life of a suit.

A good wardrobe is actually a good thing to possess in the current economic climax. A sharp suit and shoes always look good at job interviews, while good evening wear is always good with the ladies – prioritise as you wish.
