For the fashionistas, sporting something new can give a much-needed endorphin boost, and we bet you could use a menswear upgrade right now. The problem is, while working from home and during lockdowns and cold weather, in-person shopping seems like the last option we’re all taking into consideration. Fortunately, buying men’s clothing online is possible through our devices.

A strong contender, Amazon has recently staked a larger claim in the fashion market, and apparel shopping may never be the same. The world’s largest retailer has developed dedicated men’s clothing shopping channels, its own private-label collections, a try-at-home service for Prime members, and even a personal shopping service.

With all that, a search for “bestselling men’s clothes” on the site brings you some budget-friendly yet good-quality menswear. We dug a little deeper to find out what some of the best menswear finds on Amazon are right now. We looked at pieces ideal for working from home, for the casual office — which may still be at home — and one or two things to dress up a bit for when heading out.

The 8 Best Men’s Cardigans for 2022

One fashion essential item men seem to be hesitant toward is the cardigan. But they shouldn't be. From layering over a tee to updating a basic suit or pairing with a turtleneck, it’s a transitional dressing dream because of its multifunctional use; the cardigan can be worn in so many different ways. The best men's cardigan investments remain neutral and enhance whatever else it is you are wearing, while others become the statement centerpiece of any fit.

Shall we start with the basics of what a cardigan actually is? It’s a shrug-like men's cardigan sweater, usually with a loose-fitting V-neck that opens at the front. If you are picturing a big, bulky, chunky fisherman’s knit that your grandpa wears from a discount retailer, you aren’t necessarily wrong. But it can be so much more. Cardigans come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and weights. Chunky knits are a bit more difficult to pull off but are super cool when you do it right.  Thinner-style cardigans (there’s nothing like cashmere) should be a building block in your closet to mix and match with your entire wardrobe.

Guys, it's time to start to forget the saying, "Out of sight, out of mind" (at least when it comes to picking out underwear). Believe it or not, style is very important when it comes to choosing underwear -- even when it won't be on display for the masses. When choosing underwear you want to select styles that keep you comfortable throughout the day.

As one of the first pieces you put on and the last to take off, choosing a quality and durable underwear should be a priority. Underwear left the common, tighty-whitey world long ago. It’s now possible to find it in so many styles, fabrics, colors, and patterns that making a decision about what pair to wear is almost as complicated — and statement-making — as the rest of your wardrobe. Here we’ve attempted to cut through the noise a bit, offering our selects for the best boxers, briefs, and boxer briefs in various price points and styles.
