24 Affordable Places to Shop for Menswear
Here’s a list of sites I’ve put together to help you save a few bucks. I know most guys don’t have a ton of cash lying around to ‘up their game‘ when it comes to improving their style. In fact, inside the Kinowear Bible we teach guys to keep it simple.
Rule #1: Have a base to work from
What do I mean by ‘base‘?
We believe every guy should have a selection of garments he can choose from to create a look at a moment’s notice.
He should create this base of clothes… first.
When you have a strong base to work from it become ten times easier to add to it while preventing from buying items that you’ll never wear.
