My mother always said to me “to feel good, you need to look good,” these wise words have echoed in my mind ever since. Whether I’m going out on the town or going for an important job interview, I’m very conscious of the clothes I wear. Like those words my mother said to me I like to dress to impress, not only to look good but to feel good as well, which is why I spend a good deal of my money buying smart clothes.

Every Friday when I got paid, I would go straight to the town centre, where a few of my favourite designer outlets were and purchase a new shirt or some new pants ready for Saturday evening out with the mates. But after a while the choices of my favourite brands got limited, this is when I discovered online retailers and the enormous variety of branded clothes they have on offer, and with just a few clicks of the mouse I could have all the designer clothes I wanted.

Another bonus about buying on line is you can automatically get entered into some great competitions such as winning tickets to the Lyle & Scott British Open golf championship, Lyle & Scott along with Ben Sherman and Fred Perry being some of my favourite brands.

So what brands will you find in my wardrobe? Below I have listed a few of my favourite brands.

Ben Sherman

Founded in Brighton in 1963 by Arthur Benjamin Sugarman this brand has long been a favourite of mine ever since I bought a Ben Sherman button downed, collared, short sleeve shirt many years ago, and instantly fell in love with Ben Sherman shirts. I now have more than 15 shirts from this famous brand.

Lyle & Scott

This Scottish brand which was founded way back in 1874, and has been making top quality clothing ever since.  I especially like their knitwear jumpers, with their golden eagle logo which is recognised around the world

Fred Perry

Sticking with the British brands, you will find many Fred Perry polo shirts neatly folded in my draw. Although originally associated with tennis, the Fred Perry brand is now very fashionable with their polo shirts a must during the summer months.
