If you’re a young entrepreneur just starting out in the world of business, and pants can cost a pretty penny. Clothing is very expensive, especially when you are buying men’s business/casual clothing. They usually cost exuberant rates, and have every right to do so because the majority of their buyers are wealthy businessmen. However, there are some not so wealthy businessmen who are just starting out, but you need to look like wealthy businessmen. If you’re reading this article, you are probably one of them.
A good pair of pants can cost anywhere from $70 to $120. Custom shirts cost about $300. Sweaters cost about $75. But why do they actually cost this much? Well, the majority of these clothes don’t cost anywhere near they’re asking price to make. Brands can charge this much because their customers are willing to pay that much, either for the brand name or just because they think it looks good.
But let’s say that you are just starting out in business, and don’t have much money to throw around. You still need to look good, because impressions are everything, but you can’t be shelling out $1,000 for a new outfit. Here are a few Brands and places to look if you are in the market for new clothes, but don’t want to spend hundreds upon hundreds of dollars in the process.
The number one rated brand for inexpensive men’s clothing, in my opinion, is Goodfellow. They create pants, shirts, and everything in between. However, Goodfellow is most known for its very reasonably priced pants, that you can wear with dress shirts. They’re high-quality, and we’ll hold up, but only cost about $25. Compare this to the $70 that you’ll be spending at Banana Republic or any other store like that, and it is an absolute steal. I personally where Goodfellow pants, because of their low price point but extremely high-quality. They iron out well, and do not fade.
Goodfellow also offers very high-quality sweaters and shirts at a similar price point, if you are interested. The brain can only be found at Target because it is Target’s private label. It was launched in August, and since its launch, it has received very great feedback. “The market has changed and so has the guest,” Target’s chief merchandising officer, Mark Tritton, told Bloomberg. “More men are purchasing clothes and they are more discerning. So it was time for us to do something new.”
Another great provider of cheaper Men’s Clothing that is still high quality, looks great is Old Navy. Old Navy is a little bit more expensive than Target’s Goodfellow brand, but the company regularly offers up to 40% off its products, so you may be able to find them for less than any other brand. Currently, if you sign up for their mailing list, you can get the 20% off coupon on your first order.
Old Navy makes pretty much every clothing item you can think of. I personally wear their sweaters and pants, and they’re both very high quality. However, I think Goodfellow still is number one simply because it is cheaper, and the same quality. However, it is worth noting That Old Navy offers more styles of clothing then Target’s Goodfellow.
Uniqlo is yet another clothing company that offers clothes, specifically pants, at a great price. Adam Goodfellow and Old Navy, it is higher quality, but consequently higher-priced. While Goodfellow is priced at about $25 for pants, Uniqlo costs closer to $40. However, they have a wider selection of dress pants, which are higher quality, and in my opinion, better looking than the other two brands. I think for $40, you can’t really find anything better than Uniqlo pants. The company doesn’t just offer pants, it offers everything, and all of their products are good, and very well priced.
I think that each of the three brands that I just listed offer their pros and cons. However, the best all-around brand, in my opinion, is Goodfellow. They offer very high-quality clothes at a very low price point, and are great for work. You can buy a full outfit for under $50. Check them out at target.com.
