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.
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.
A recent opening in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, Jutah Studios brings a collection of under-the-radar streetwear brands to the city centre, offering branded clothing that you wouldn’t find elsewhere. Promoting the hashtag #shopdifferently, Jutah is the perfect destination for those who see themselves as ahead of the crowds. Stocking both hidden gems and familiar brands, you’ll find the likes of Cheap Monday, Blackcraft Cult, Dolly Noire, Doomsday Society and Swallows & Daggers on their shelves.
