We’ve recently shared our list of Manchester’s best womenswear shops, and it’s now time to reveal our favourite independent stores for men to shop in the city. Covering both casual and formal clothing, here are our top five menswear shops in Manchester.

Oi Polloi

Located in the heart of the Northern Quarter, Oi Polloi has become somewhat of a Manchester institution, beloved of local lads. The comfortable yet stylish interior lends well to the area’s hipster aesthetic, encouraging the cool kids without alienating newcomers. You’ll find all of the hippest brands in the store, focusing on casual and outdoorsy clothing such as knitwear, T-shirts, denim, trainers and rucksacks by the likes of A.P.C, Fjallraven, Barbour, Woolrich and Pendleton. Head here for timeless, practical and stylish clothes with a subtle contemporary twist.

One of Manchester’s original fashion trail-blazers, Hervia Bazaar has been selling some of the most directional British designers since it first opened its doors in 1993.

If you’re looking for luxury, head to Spinningfields to spend several hours perusing the racks at the flagship Flannels shop. Although the store also sells womenswear, head straight up the stairs to the men’s floor and you’ll be confronted with an overwhelming array of both casual and formal clothing, footwear and accessories by leading contemporary brands including Paul Smith, Gucci and Moncler. There’s something for every man here (providing that you have the budget); if it’s suiting that you’re after, the dedicated tailoring department will help you get suited and booted, or if you’re more of a trainers man, this is the perfect place to get your kicks.
