Let's face it, shopping is the last thing on most men's minds, even if we need something. While there are some things we will brave the traffic, parking, and crowds for, clothing is rarely one of those things. No matter how badly we need a new pair of jeans, a new pair of shoes, a suit, or underwear, going to a mall is near the top of the list of things most of us don't want to do to spend a weekend. Luckily for us, there are dozens and dozens of retailers that have developed online stores, and in some cases moved their operations completely online.
Just because there are dozens of options, doesn't mean they are all the same. Some online retailers rise above the rest, making them the best clothing stores for men.
Orvis has flown under the radar in the menswear world for far too long. The 160 year old brand has entrenched themselves with a certain audience seeking high end outdoors apparel that performs well while looking classic. Like niche streetwear brands, they've been a "If you know, you know" brand for decades.
We're here to say it's about time more people know because Orvis offers exceptional quality heritage Americana goods from their in-house line as well as a range of third party brands. It is also noteworthy that Orvis was one of the first companies to sell Barbour in America and they routinely have by far the largest selection of any American retailer. They're a hidden gem for fans of British waxed cotton jackets.
Going back to his days as Men's Creative Director at J.Crew, Todd Snyder has appreciated the fact that some brands are so good at what they do that you'll never top them. He recognized that by featuring those masterful brands alongside his own designs, it enhanced his brands overall quality and the shopping experience for his customers. In short: if you can't beat them, wholesale them.
Todd Snyder started out carrying a small range of essential names like Alden, Crockett & Jones, Timex, and Converse. Over the past few years the company has grown their wholesale assortment exponentially by giving a platform to lesser known foreign brands and exceptionally talented artists. Now, it is fair to say that Todd Snyder is as much a curator of other brands as he is a designer of his own.

Self-described as the one-stop shop for the "world’s coolest gear," Huckberry has been appeasing adventurous fellas since 2010. In fact, it was a pair of city slickers who first came up with the idea for the store, noting that it was specifically built for urbanite shoppers who also happen to love the great outdoors.
The collection is wide ranging, but is particularly popular for boots, sweaters, and jackets sourced straight from big names like Red Wing, Billy Reid, Patagonia, and Penfield.
