Fashion can be tough for men. The best quality items that we truly desire are really expensive.

We’re also judged by what brands we wear a lot more than women and have a much smaller window of acceptability, especially as we get older.

If a woman is wearing a low quality brand but she looks great wearing it, then chances are no one cares.

If a man is wearing a low quality brand however, regardless of how he looks, other men will taunt him and women will think he’s cheap.

So how do you get around this without having to spend thousands on clothes?

 

Going Logo Free

Plain clothes have no reference point. Other than the material, which varies in quality, plain clothes cannot be categorized since there’s no logo.

Brand names act like price tags. They also act as price drivers. Simply putting a logo on a garment can increase the price 10x.

By wearing clothing without a visible logo or brand name, no one has any idea what you’re wearing. Therefore as long as it looks good you’re going to get positive results.

 

What To Look Out For

Although there’s no logo or brand name to be seen, the quality of the material is still a give away.

However there are many companies that produce high quality goods at a low price without displaying their logo everywhere.

Zara is one brand that does this. Many of these low priced brands have realized that displaying their logos actually hurts sales. People don’t want to advertise the fact that the clothes they’re wearing didn’t cost a lot. Companies like Zara understand this and keep their garments plain.

You can quite easily pick up good quality and completely plain leather jackets, jeans, formal shoes, Sweaters, Knitwear and white-tees for under $200 collectively.

This equates to an entire outfit that has no reference towards cost. As long as it fits well and the person wearing it looks clean, then the outfit only enhances you.

 

The Reason This Works

When you get to the highest end of fashion where clothes are costing thousands for individual items, you’ll notice that these garments are logo and branding free.

Many of these companies see logo placement as a way of cheapening their brand and destroying the garments themselves.

This is perfect for the frugal shopper. It means he can wear non-branded clothing that looks expensive but can be bought by anyone.

Model David Gandy is testament to this. As a ambassador of Marks & Spencers, he will constantly attend events in M&S suits. In one story he spoke about people asking him wear he got his suit and in disbelief when he told them it was no more than £400 from M&S.

The reason he got away with this is because all of their clothes are logo and branding free.

When it comes to male fashion on a budget, plain and mysterious is a winning combination.
