If you’re a guy and have been reading this blog, I’m so sorry we haven’t covered more menswear. To be honest, the most I delve into menswear is the once or twice a year my husband goes shopping. Sure, I keep an eye on men’s fashion, after all, I can’t have a poorly dressed husband.

One of the things of course, is finding the perfect pair of jeans. Men are probably even more particular about their jeans as women. I have a friend who always gets Levi’s 501 jeans at Sears, then has them tailored, so not only are they hemmed, the legs are also tapered. Another friend does the “never wash” thing, which is kind of gross, but his jeans look amazing, the wear looking so much richer than the bought in the store distressing many jeans have today.  One of my most dapper friends always hems his jeans a little too short, he’s been doing that for years (even before Thom Browne broke out). Each of them more systematic committed to their particular style  than any woman I know.

The one thing most of my male friends always ask, is where to shop, menswear online is a different beast than women’s, and few shops carry a decent range of designers while having amazing customer service like free shipping, international shipping, etc. Which is why East Dane, Shopbop’s menswear store opening is such a great thing. “We saw an opportunity in the market for an approachable shopping environment that is tailored specifically for the male perspective and their shopping habits,” says Jeff Yurcisin, President of Shopbop and East Dane. “We understand this is not about cloning Shopbop for men, but about creating a customized experience for guys with the ultimate combination of merchandise, customer service and usability that meets their needs.”

Some great features is you can shop with your Amazon account (most guys I know loooove Amazon) which is true of Shopbop as well. But the shop also carries brands like J Brand, A.P.C, Raleigh Denim, PRPS, Levi’s Made & Crafted and Rag & Bone, all fantastic denim brands for men.
