Stand Out From the Crowd – Shop Independent

Walk around any busy city centre and you are almost guaranteed to see hordes of men sporting the same garments.  There are several problems that this poses:

  • It makes your look seem generic.
  • You lose the personal touch to your style.
  • Lastly and possibly the worst realisation, it suits the other person better than it suits you.

If you identify with any of these, then this article is for you. To avoid looking like another generic guy in the crowd then my advice to you is to start ordering from independent brands. With so many new labels popping up there has never been such a wide variety of choice for men’s clothes.

Here are three brands for you to check out.

Why Not Clothing

Why Not Clothing or WNC are a Manchester based brand established in 2012, their tag line is ‘Not just a brand but a statement’. Why Not Clothing specialise in urban street wear, reviving looks such as acid wash, dip dye and most recently featuring tartan in their A/W 14 collection. Why Not are definitely a brand to check out for affordable pieces that will set you apart from your friends.
