Best Websites for Clothes Hunters

Dec 19th 2014 at 2:31 AM

It seems that whenever a household’s finances are down, the first thing to get squeezed is the clothes budget. Even in more flush times folks are often trying to find the best deals on retail clothing in their community. And customizable, tailored clothes are always en vogue. This is why local thrift stores are such hot spots for frugal shoppers looking for vintage wear that they can alter according to their own taste. There are also larger online operations, such as Broken Arrow Wear, that allow folks to customize T-shirts and other apparel to their liking.

Focusing on the online aspect, here are some other websites that not only help people to find great deals on retail apparel, but customizable clothing on a budget as well.


Touting itself as “#1 in women’s fashion clothing in the USA for custom clothes,” eShakti is certainly one of the more popular online resources for tailored clothing. While many of their items most decidedly fall into the retro category, they do have a “contempo” section that focuses on modern trends. As for customization, ladies can send their measurements in and for a small fee (often less than eight bucks), the site will tailor the clothing on order and even adjust the sleeve and neckline if need be. Another perk is that eShakti often has site-wide sales offering discounts of well over 50%.


Those with an eye for European designers will want to check out this site. The selection is deep and features top designers such as Armani, Chloe, Marc Jacobs and Dolce &Gabbana. Indeed Yoox mostly focuses on apparel from across the pond, but they have a robust global network of providers. And while there is no shortage of high-end items to break the bank, visitors to this site can still find the occasional deal on hot designer goods.


Think of this site as Pinterest for fashionistas. Polyvore has actually done a remarkable job of combining photo-sharing social media with consumerism. The site itself is comprised of collages put together by regular people that showcase clothing and design ideas from across cyberspace. Visitors to the site simply click on an item in a collage they happen to like, and the website directs them to a page containing all relevant vendor and price info. Users can also set alerts on items they like that will notify them when the items in question happen to go on sale.


Since 1998 Bluefly has made it their mission to deliver designer clothing and items at discount rates. At this they have certainly succeeded, as evidenced by the myriad deals that are always on offer throughout the site. Arrive at Bluefly on any given day and you’re likely to find savings on certain items of up to 80% off.

These are just a few sites to help find customizable and designer apparel at discount prices. There are other websites, of course, ones that can even help visitors learn how to properly tailor and alter any piece of clothing in the closet. Craftsy and Wearare two fine examples of such websites.
