We’re doing it all online now. Dating, class, shopping; you name it, it’s possible over the internet.
However, with the development of recent online fashion, the shopping experience is more than just click, drag, checkout—it’s interactive.
For the collegiate that aims to dress business casual, myhabit.com is an eye-catcher, offering a variety of styles intended for both men and women.
The site breeds habitual users with daily changes in their selections, while encouraging current members to invite their friends in exchange for store credit.
Here, users will find leather and suede mid-top shoes, flashy ties, and overcoats. Up-and-coming corporate executives can find their shoestring budget styles here with high percentage savings on brands like John Varvatos and JD Fisk.
A safe-haven for guys on a budget that like to dress in style, but are too insecure to go clothes shopping solo, there is jackthreads.com.
Jack Threads’ styles are definitely geared toward younger college students as it features graphic tees, V-necks, low-top canvas shoes, and a selection of quirky watches.
Specializing in men’s fashion, Jack Threads encourages users to come back day after day by having a constantly rotating inventory. One hour there’s an entire selection of Brooklyn fashion staples, the next it’s a sale on Chinos.
A $69 per month, highly customizable fashion subscription service, Bombfell takes things to another level.
Users fill out a detailed survey, including all measurements, style preferences, and types of clothing desired. Every month, Bombfell will ship you an item, handpicked by one of their stylists.
And these aren’t cheap clothes, either. Penguin, Ben Sherman, and other big name designer brands grace their inventory.
If you don’t like the clothes or they don’t fit, Bombfell will refund your money or exchange the item for free. Forever. No matter what.
Rue La La
Like MyHabit, Rue La La is an invitation-only, online shopping destination. They feature fashion for both men and women, ranging from clothing items to accessories and household stuff.
They focus on discovery and exclusivity. The items they put up for sale are unique and exciting, and only up for a limited amount of time.
The individualized world of fashion has had to cope with an increasingly more online-only audience. Retaining a personal touch to every shopping experience is tough when it’s through a screen, but so far the world has delivered.
Your closet will thank us. Your wallet might not.
