Savings Come in All Shapes and Sizes

Looking Like a Million Bucks Without Being a Millionaire

There’s no doubt that the fashion industry is one that’s formed on expensive clothing and designer labels. Unfortunately, filling a wardrobe with these sorts of garments is not only unrealistic for many men, it’s also completely unreasonable from a financial standpoint. There is a way around it though. With careful planning and thinking in advance, men can end up looking like a millionaire without actually being one. Read on for several brilliant savings ideas.

Coupon Savings

While it might seem a bit tacky on the surface, using paper coupons and e-vouchers can be a great way to reduce the cost of high-quality items. Many retailers offer them sporadically, but do tend to offer them at set times of the year. It’s important for men to be aware of these times and budget accordingly since the savings generated from coupons tend to be very high if guys are able to capitalize on them quickly.

E-vouchers are another excellent option for saving money and quick Internet web searches can reveal current, active voucher codes that can be added to a cart just before checking out for an immediate discount.

Off Season Sales

End of season clearance sales are another excellent option when it comes to saving money. By choosing to buy clothes in advance for the next season, men can save quite a bit along the way. However, it is important for men to only choose fashion staples that do not adhere to modern trends. Choosing the latest and current trends only leads to fashion disasters the next season when they’re suddenly a faux-pas. However, sticking with a discounted classic three-piece suit or leather jacket will ensure that it remains fashionable for years to come.

Avoid Brands

Choosing to avoid big designer labels altogether is another great way to help save money. It is very important to explore the quality of lesser-known brands though. Some truly budget items are made of inferior fabrics and poor stitching, which only come apart at the seams within a few washes. These can almost always be identified by their exceptionally cheap price tags against the nearest competition. There is a middle ground out there though, but it is up to guys to find what matches their bodies and typical daily use properly.

Men may also find savvy buys by choosing bespoke clothing made by a tailor. While the initial investment tends to be higher than off the rack clothing, the overall longevity and higher quality tends to offset and far outweigh the starting price.
