Introduction

While the UK has more than its fair share of great independent clothing boutiques, British sartorialists often play second fiddle to our friends across the pond. Many of the world’s best designer menswear shops are based in the USA and don’t offer online shopping; however, one website has stepped up to act as an online shopping portal for some of the best boutiques all over the world.

FarFetch.com provides you with access to the latest men’s clothing from some of the World’s most desirable independent boutiques – and allows you to pay for all of it in your native currency! For us in the UK, this means you could potentially pick up a limited edition blazer from an Italian boutique, a pair of the latest trainers from a New York specialist and finish it off with a beautiful leather briefcase from France, all in the same shopping spree.

It really does offer those men who desire a truly unique and individual style a chance to develop a wardrobe that (literally) consists of items from all the corners of the globe.

The Top 5 American Menswear Boutiques

Today we team up with the guys at FarFetch to showcase a few of our favourite American outfitters. And what’s more, if a trip to New York or Los Angeles is not on your radar, you can browse their individual range of designer clothes for men on farfetch.com.
