Mens Clothing - How to Buy Men's Wear Online

Updated on August 13, 2012

The advent of internet spelt boom for shoppers. With more and more companies vying for space on the World Wide Web, online shopping has become a most sought after experience. Shopping for men’s clothing online has never been easier. As it is, the variety in men’s wear is quite limited, and if you have to shop manually, you will end up spending a whole day probably just window shopping, spending gallons of precious fuel and end up taking just one tie or a shirt or at the most a suit.

Online Shopping Tips

Selection – browse through a wide selection of attire before zeroing in on you favorite. Since you can do all the research sitting in your home at the click of a mouse, it should not be difficult. When you look at a wide range, you will get an idea of the current fashion trends and also a better range of your liking, then you can buy accordingly.

Quality – while shopping online preferably opt for reputed brand’s sites which will guarantee you quality products along with certification if required. If you do go through other non-manufacturer’s site, ensure that you have some kind of quality guarantee. Read through their blogs and other user comments.

Tips To Save Yourself From Online Scams

A best way of recognizing a good company is to browse through the photographs of their products on sale. Reputed companies will put up printed catalogs which give the complete description of the garment and the styling. Scam sites will have photographs from other sources like scanned images or magazine photographs. This would clearly mean that they do not stock the material themselves but may be outsourcing it from someone else (that is if they intend to really send it to you). Here the chances that you will receive what you had actually purchased are quite slim. Also read the fine print in the terms and conditions or description section. Reputed companies will guarantee to send you the product you choose in the same color and style while others will have a line saying the image is a sample only and the color of the garment being sent to you will depend on stock availability.

You must and should make payment only through “secured checkout”. There are two ways of confirming this. First, when you reach the secured checkout page of the website where you need to give out your personal and credit card information, check for the graphic of a “yellow lock” on the right hand bottom of your screen. Second, your browser should read “https” instead of “http”. If both these security signs are not present, then you run the risk of misuse of your information Purchase only through encrypted and safe sites. To get a security certificate the company should verify its credit and identity. Just fancy graphics or text claiming the safety of the website is a sure sign of a fraud company.

The other things you should be wary of are unrealistic claims. Remember if the deal sounds too good to be true; in most probability it is. Check for spelling mistakes (especially in logos) and confusing product listings. See if there are new products or new arrivals page on the site and check how often it is updated. You can also check who you are really buying from by seeing up the domain name in the Whois.com at http://whois.domaintools.com/ . Most importantly see if the domain has “SSL Cert”. If there is “no valid SSL”, the site is not secured. It is best to keep away from these sites.

      Tall Mans Clothes

      Wow!....Amazing.

      This is great advice and people should bookmark this hub before they go online shopping and before they take anything to the tailor by web.

      More often than not, people are buying by size rather than by fit and that is a disastrous decision, since the industry is “reducing” sizes to the point where a size zero “makes sense” – did the person disappeared? – or it is just more flattering to be a zero?

      I found that by just changing buttons in an old outfit I can get an updated look at a very reasonable price. I totally agree that quality fabric and workmanship will endure time and ensure elegance,
