Today I have some hopefully exciting news for all of our regular readers. Over the past few months we have been busy beavering away trying to create a shop in which we can list all our favourite stores and brands in one place. We often suggest products to you in our articles which you can use to get a certain “look” or hit a new trend, but what about if you just fancied a nice afternoon browse of all the best clothing and accessories on the internet? Well hopefully we have solved this for you with the launch of: SHOP.FASHIONBEANS.COM

The Fashionbeans Shop

So now we have combined our menswear and womenswear section to bring you a shop that would hopefully not look out of place alongside all the great fashion retailers of the internet like ASOS, Topman, All Saints and Oki-ni. We have tried to structure the shop traditionally, allowing you to browse through sections (tees, polos, jeans etc.) and then use our filters to refine your search to your budget, favourite brand, or particular style.

We are going to be listing products from 15-20 of our all time favourite online menswear shops, so that you have the largest range of quality garments at your fingertips without needing to go through each and every site every time you want to buy that new must have piece. The shops we use will only stock the best men’s fashion brands available, have excellent customer service we could recommend, and we will have contacts at the retailer in order to bring you the best new releases and offers before anyone else.

At the moment we have only just begun to fill the shop and we will continue to do so gradually because we do not want to cause information overload for you all! New items will be added daily, and once the initial stock has gone on, we will start to literally hand pick every single item that gets listed each month – so you can see exactly what the team here at Fashionbeans recommends personally.

The shop will obviously be utilised more on Fashionbeans as well; we will include products in stories, create specific categories of recommended items based on the trend/item we are describing, show you writer’s picks for the month, and create top 10 lists (military boots, pea coats etc.) so you can see what you need in your wardrobe quickly and easily. Specialised content and trend reports will also begin to go onto the shop in order to keep it fresh and up to date at all times.


So in order to launch this shop properly and spread the word amongst your friends, we have designed a short and sweet competition which will run from now until December 15th 2010. The premise behind it is so easy that hopefully you will all find time to enter.

How To Enter

There are 3 ways to enter this competition and that means you can have up to 3 ENTRIES in order to maximise your chance at winning:

Today we have tweeted about our new shop launch on: All you need to do is become a follower of ours on twitter and retweet the message for your first entry.

The Tweet you need to RT is: Fashionbeans Shop Now LIVE – showing all the latest designer clothing: via @fashionbeans RT for #competition


The second way to enter is to go onto our new shop and take a look through our current brand directory for men. All you need to do is go to your personal favourite menswear brand and then tweet about it with a link to the page and add #fbcomp (so we can track your entry!).

For example you could say something like: My Fav Fashion Brand: #fbcomp


The final way to enter is just as easy. Go to the shop homepage and click the facebook share button on the right hand side. Click the share button in the pop up box to share it to your facebook profile. This is the third and final way to enter.


The Prizes

The prizes will be £50 worth of vouchers to your online store of choice (*they need to allow voucher purchases however). We have £50 to give away to a male reader and £50 to give away to a female reader.

These vouchers would come in handy for buying Christmas presents, or just to treat yourself at this time of the year. To enter the competition above will probably take 3 minutes tops, so it is worth the effort.

Remember to enter all 3 ways to maximise your entries, show some love to the site and spread the word of Fashionbeans! Competition finishes on 15th December 2010 so be quick!
