It’s not hard to remember a time when getting an A-list wardrobe required a bank balance as puffy as P Diddy’s.
The same goes for the kind of labels hanging inside the closets of Jamie Foxx, Tyga, Swae Lee, French Montana and Scott Disick which were, sure, extremely cool, but almost always eye-wateringly expensive.
But things have changed. And given that all these red carpet heavyweights have all been spotted in a range that starts from just £5, it’s clear that looking good is no longer all about the Benjamins.
Founded in 2013 and launched as a standalone platform three years later, boohooMAN has established itself as one of the web’s premier locations for trend-led menswear that’s just as at home in the Hollywood Hills as they are on the streets of its hometown, Manchester.
Considering that these famous fans of the etailer’s branded MAN range aren’t short of a quid or two, either, speaks volumes about the products, which are quickly becoming the new standard in affordable basics.
So before you attempt to beg, borrow or steal from the most stylish celebrities, check out these 10 key products to get some for yourself (before the A-list nab it all).
Original MAN Print Over The Head Hoodie

Long-Sleeved Original MAN T-Shirt

Original Man Logo Print T-Shirt
If there’s a garment more deserving of the title ‘wardrobe essential’ than the T-shirt, we’re yet to hear about it. Add to that the fact that the logo tee has been a cornerstone of the streetwear world for as long as most can remember and boohooMAN’s staple offering is a surefire future classic.

Whether you’re off for a session in the squat rack, or simply trying to cart your lunch to the office handsfree, a backpack is the perfect way to do it. With its canvas construction, multiple zip compartments, there’s no bag out there better suited for the task.
MAN Armband Hoodie
No wardrobe rotation can possibly be considered complete without a few hoodies. This vibrant option is available in striking red and yellow and is capped with a logo armband that’ll make you look like Jamie Foxx’s security.
Not everyone can pull off a beanie, but picking the right one can give you the best possible chance. This cuffed style is a solid choice: rendered in a classic monochrome colorway, it’s as versatile as they come and will keep those lugs warm, too.
Real Leather MAN Embossed Card Holder
Any brand that can turn out a real leather cardholder for less than a fiver has our backing as well as Diddy’s. This sleek, little pouch is available in two colorways, and best of all you’ll have plenty of money left over to stuff it with.

No millionaire rapper got there by only wearing black and white clobber. Stand out from the crowd and get noticed in this eye-catching T-shirt. The bold styling makes it a great way to give your outfit a focal point and introduce a splash of color to any look.
