The Best 4 Stores for the Stylish Dad on a Budget

Here are my favourite affordable places to shop right now:


One of my favourite brands when it comes to finding accent pieces for an affordable price. In this era of fast fashion Zara is king (I’m know H&M will be upset that I didn’t rank them number 1) but this is exactly what draws me into Zara. I like trends, I want the way I dress in 2019 to be a little different than the way I dressed in 2014. By pairing my wardrobe staples with trendy items from Zara I am able to maintain my signature style while still feeling like I know what’s hot in the streets.

Two-Tone Brogued Leather Shoes


Uniqlo Desktop-16 (2)14Nov2018185452

They are a very recent entrant in the North American market and I’m glad they came. Many of their products are simple and timeless, but they also have a multitude of collaborations that keep lot of their stock on trend.

Kaws x Sesame Street, JW Anderson, Jason Polan x Marvel and Alexander Wang are just a few of the partnerships that they have launched in the past year.

Uniqlo brings designers who’s products may have been financially or physically out of reach for many right to your local mall.

Club Monaco


Club Monaco has long been a favourite of mine. From their classic sweats to their beautiful knits CM men’s shop rarely disappoints. Club Monaco has you covered for all occasions, from suiting to business casual to leisure ( I’m in love with their Collab with Reigning Champ) making them the most versatile shop on the list. As a bonus if you are lucky enough to live close to a Club Monaco outlet you will be in for some amazing deals.

Frank and Oak


Three years ago this was the hot up and coming online men’s shop. As a teacher Frank and Oak is perfect as they offer a terrific variety of button ups, dress pants and knit sweaters.
In recent years I’ve been pleased to see them expand they retail business and they are a must visit whenever I hit the mall. They are hands down my favourite place to buy basics but they also have a number of interesting and fun designs as well (see Disney and NBA collections).
