Let’s face it, guys don’t spend a lot of time shopping in the mens clothing section. They dislike hemming and hawing over which pair of pants is just a little bit better and they may not be willing to go pick up another package of underwear until there are holes in it from one end through the other and it sags like a pair of well….In any case it’s difficult to get a man to hang out in the mens clothing department. They are in, picking up what they need and back out again. It’s like a well planned covert operation to them. How quickly can they sneak in and out with out the clothing attendant even realizing that someone has been in the department?
However, men, by taking just a little time at the department store to consider your options in the mens clothing section you’ll save yourself some time and money in the long run. A man on a mission has a tendency to stick to one brand of clothing or to pick out the cheapest option. He doesn’t look around too much unless there is a gal with him to do it for him. He also doesn’t spend a lot of time trying on clothing. He may try on a pair of pants to see if they fit and he’s good to go.
Now, it’s always an excellent idea to try on the clothing you want to buy. Instead of just one or two pieces of clothing take several pairs into that fitting room. It’s also a good idea to try on clothing one size below and one size above the clothing size you currently wear. You may have lost some weight or gained and don’t even realize that the clothing you are wearing is ill fitting. Always use your trips to the mens clothing department to confirm these things.
Also, consider purchasing the slightly more expensive piece of clothing. More expensive sometimes means more frills and fashion trends than you’d feel comfortable in, but it can also mean a better quality, better fitting and longer lasting piece of clothing. The longer your clothing lasts, the longer you can goes without having to put one foot in the mens clothing section of the store.
There are a few things to pay attention to when looking at a piece of clothing to make sure it’s good quality and will last you longer. Feel the fabric to ensure it’s a nice weight. Some manufacturers will use very thin, low quality fabric to help cut their costs. This fabric quickly becomes threadbare. Even if you are buying a tee shirt it should be both stretchy and tightly knit. When you pull on the fabric it should easily return to its original shape.
A good jeans fabric is heavy too. It may also feel very soft and well broken in. However, a stiffer pair of jeans if okay too and you’ll be able to break it in later with repeated washings to help soften the fabric.
Paying attention to good quality, trying on your clothing and paying slightly more will ensure that you get longer lasting mens clothing. A good array of options in your wardrobe means you’ll always be the best dressed man in the room.
