I received a comment with two questions: “Where to buy raw denim in Brazil” and “What are good stores men’s nationals”. If you have a problem on the blog is that I talk a lot of foreign brands. Brands that I admire, but are not always to our geographic reach or financial. Until I made a list of nice with shops male in NY and always share the experiences I’ve had in the shops for men that I visit in the world, but nothing of national lists.
Really I speak little bit of brazilian, and that these questions are excellent. So… where does a man purchase good clothes in Brazil? I accepted this challenge and decided to make it possible to start a dialog. I admit that I do not feel confident. I’m guilty of not paying attention to what you have here. It’s funny, because even though scattered around the world, the brands and shops I tend to have philosophies of well locations. The only explanation I have is that the stores in brazil are random, have you noticed?
As well aleatóreas? You notice how once in a while, you see something very cool in a shop. Or some brand makes a whole fuss over the launch of a product accurate. And there, in the same place, has a lot of stunts. Perhaps lacking identity in the stores? Proposal?
They seem to float in the sea-volatile of the most commercial international trends.Think about how recently it was impossible to find a suit slim here in Brazil, and now even that shop big daddy of the shopping mall seems to only sell suits shrunk. As few men have interest in style, or at least the style that I like, it’s easier to throw things as well practices or and that already is in fashion. In this second case, usually are products pushed down their throats in trade blogs and magazines.
I’m sure that there are many stores and brands legal there. I just don’t talk because really I have not had contact with many brazilian brands with messages that arouse my interest. You can be the Beautiful Skyline, hehe.
I organized my response into four parts to facilitate:
- What are the best shops for men’s clothing in Brazil
- What are the best shops for men’s shoes in Brazil
- What are the best accessories shops in Brazil
- Where to buy Raw Denim in Brazil
If you expect a text on where to purchase product X or Y by less, or where to find this or that style, the list will not meet. There are already many videos on Youtube and Blog posts much more well made that exploit hundreds of cheaper alternatives for the things that we see out there or in the luxury brands. What I’m going to try to do here is to list the stores and brands that sell the good stuff, regardless of price.
In the end, I want your comment to me to indicate the places that deserved to be in this list. Combined?
What are the best shops for men’s clothes in Brazil?
This question is very difficult. There are a few independent brands popping up like mushrooms in the scenario and you can start investigating. I don’t know all, but the Instagram is a good place to look. This can be the first tip; find a legal mark in the Instagram and go following the trail of recommendations to find what’s new. If you find any, post it here and I’ll evaluate!
Brands and Independent Shops
Are what I like the most. Has no basement so I’m going to talk, but I feel more comfortable trading my money with smaller brands because I feel more close to what they do.
Of that I know has the Cotton Projects that began with a tender “surfer urban” and today it has another format. There are some things that I don’t like and others that I like a lot. Usually, the jackets and shirts with floral print caught my attention. When they win, reminds me of Our Legacy. When they make mistakes, remind me of the more the hipsters BH, that must be the most boring of São Paulo.
It also has the Oriba, that sells basic pieces with a proposal that is sustainable. In terms of the store, I have not had a experiênia very friendly when I visited the physical space but the idea is very interesting. The basic ones are made with good materials, but modeling is definitely young (collars small in shirts, etc.). If you are visiting, very close to the Oriba has a shop called the House Daily that is not clothes but it has some cool stuff.
If you enjoy a streetwear, I think the Piet ‘s pretty cool. It is a brand that is accompanies very well the buzz out there. Virtually no delay, but this does not mean that the products are copies. The releases are always quite accurate and has a lot of Peter in what he sells. Often, it is the type of product that in some years it appears in fast fashion but in my opinion, if you can buy it, you will contribute to something greater in regards to the scene, creation, etc.
For a proposal more workwear, has the Dion Ochner and Breaknecks, each adventure, for various pieces of clothing. The comment I made above about supporting those who paddle against the tide here also. If you want to check out the store BKNS in SP I did a few photos!
To facilitate the search, I recommend the Distinct, a virtual store that brings together independent brands and does the job of curating a super cool.
All of these that I listed are already independent brands as well mature because being sincere, in terms of construction and material, is difícl be in Brazil isolationist and experience national groups with huge access to supply chains and specialist factories. Including, one of the problems of many independent brands beginners is that although almost all inevitably adopt a variation of the speech made by hand, the “handmade” of them is still at a level that does not reveal the advantages of handmade.
Yes, all independent brands use the best material and workmanship possible within each reality. The difference is that they have identity and provide a lot of attention to the design, cutting and shaping of the part. In these purchases you usually sees what people want to do and where they want to reach. If you agree, you have the opportunity to buy something you believe in and support the brothers.
The Richards is a good option for menswear “practice”, the one of the guy who likes to be well dressed on a day-to-day. The shop always use good fabrics but everything is superfaturado. Or is only worth it in promotions.
Pay attention because once in a while Richard throws a few jackets and coats as well legal. The “catch”? These products “diferentões” sell a little, and almost always sit in inventory until the time of the promotion. I am not a big fan of the tailoring of Richards, but the saddlery and the shoes are also interesting. Again, wait for promotions because the price falls by up to 60% at the time of discount.
The Noir Le Lis Blanc is another shop that, like Richards, is very expensive for what it is. When I visited the shop in Belo Horizonte I found the quality more of the same, but I liked the modeling dass casual clothes. The suits and blazers left a lot to be desired for modeling, but if you enjoy proportions shrunken is a good choice. Here is all that marketing cool, but I also think that it’s only worth in the promotion.
A problem that I notice in all of these shops are more expensive is that the finishes don’t match the quality of premium fabrics that they matter. To strive to work with each differentiated fabrics, but maybe the plants and the quality control is not so good.
In the part of tailoring, the VR and Brooksfield are present at various shopping malls throughout Brazil. I don’t like the VR, tailoring has proportions of weak and exaggerations in the branding of the casual. The Brooksfield is more discreet, but the cut is traditional. To buy a suit here I recommend to try several shops by the mall and choose the one that makes you feel good. Pay attention to how the suit wears and examine the cut to see what you can adjust. If it is wool imported, such as Loro Piana, all the better.
Now the cheap. Department stores often have cost-effective better than these chic. Until a short time ago it was very difficult to find pieces of good taste in Renner, C&A and Riachuello. These shops have a habit of taking something simple and complicate too much, but they are improving.
Now it’s very much worth you take a look at these networks. The moral… we are half screwed of clothing in Brazil. Buy from independent brands is cool to change this situation. If you go to buy something normal, there are times that the quality of these department stores, cheap is not so worse than in the shops of the brazilian name.
A jacket of Renner may not have the same fabric, detail or finish of the products that I share here, but if you use it correctly, you can get the same effect. Spend less money than buying in the Reserve, and will probably give up on it.
Look… I’m sorry the tailors and the guys in the fight to revive the tailoring in Brazil for the which I will talk about…
Has some “modern” that I saw on Instagram doing a marketing youngest to leave the tailoring funky. They announce the product “bespoke” that is not, following a communication line through Ricardo Almeida.
Until today I have not seen any suit from these tailors that caught my attention. All, without exception, do with cuts that you find in Zara. Is he cutting for use with gravatinha fine, lapel narrow and almost pants with low waist. Makes no sense to me to go to a tailor if the cut of the house is exactly like that of a fast fashion. The only justification is the one who needs lots of adjustments on account of something peculiar in the body.
Here in Belo Horizonte has a few tailors of the old hidden by the buildings of the Centre. I think that every city should have its pearl. You have to search or buy in a store, and asks to adjust!
What are the best stores to buy men’s shoes in Brazil?
I have never bought something from there, but I visited The Craft Shoe Factory when I was in São Paulo and I found very interesting. They have a line more classic with a price fair for the value that they offer.
Other legal brands are Louie and Brogan, exclusively online. I have some reviews of a boot Louie and boot Brogan here. I also like the line in the Garage of the Democrat, which is not spectacular but has good price and passes through a good quality control. The Democrat is a manufacturer super serious.
I started to complete the list but stopped. In general, all of the shoes from the Brazilian brands are made by the same factories. Notice on the soles and in the formats that you can find a lot of thing from the same place, with varying prices.
Has the boot of Richards and Black Boots at the factory store Anatomic Gel. If you visit the website of Black Boots, Barcelona Design , or We Basic, also you will notice that are the same model with change in details. It’s just a matter of seeing who is cheaper, because the quality is the same. These are just a few examples, but when your eye to be aware of you will repair in the same supplier for the whole side.
The best shoes and boots made in Brazil has construction blaqueada. No gets to be an excellent shoe, with the differentials that make a very good product, but meet.
What are the best stores to buy male accessories in Brazil?
Accessories are the simplest to start making the clothes, and so we have some legal brands in Brazil!
I recommend the Cutterman for wallets men’sbags/backpacks. I have several products from them and am super satisfied. I did a review of stock photo, of aportfolio Music Man and I still need to make a few bags that I have. The physical store in SP is pretty cool and I wrote about the physical space of the Cutterman here.
Another brand very cool for the portfolio is the Braveman. I also did a few reviews of the products them, portfolio, single pocket, and an organizer. Another guy app, what is of my earth: Outsider Goods.
All of these brands have a footprint rustic. I haven’t figured out someone making portfolios more elegant, you know?
Rings, bracelets and necklaces I’m going to of Liberty Art Brothers. Is my brand of rings favorite here in Brazil… the photo that illustrates the post is of the shop in SP. The space is very cool… snapped a few photos of the shop Liberty Art Brothers new and also the first space that they opened before you migrate!
For sunglasses, I like the price and some models of a brand called Livo.
Where to buy raw denim quality in Brazil?
Selvedge I only know the Blank Space at the moment. I have a jeans from them and the product is pretty cool. The fabric is nice, not so light and not so heavy. The pant is well made and the cut helps a lot (even though you have low waist). With luck, you can also find a pants selvedge in the online store of the blog. I’m always panning products out there.
Raw Denimwithout the selvedge, if I’m not mistaken, the Piet made and the Breaknecks had some. The very Blank Space has a “dry” that is cheaper than the selvedge, and also seems to be rough. The Colour used to have some that you can buy in case of emergency.
If you want a selvedge denim, it also has affordable options out there. The denim gringo for you not to spend too much and put your feet in this universe is the brand Unbranded. I assembled another list of good shops to buy the jeans japanese, which are more specific and require an “abstraction” in the concept of craft, be fão of the fabric, the history, bla bla bla. Also some of the denim brands that I recommend, divided by price range.
Phew! Just. I hope I have helped you with my answers! What do you think? If you enjoyed, don’t forget to share and follow the blog on Facebook or Instagram.
