Shopping In The Mainline Menswear Black Friday Sale

This is a collaborative post.

I never buy clothes for my husband. I know this is quite unusual but he has his own unique “style” – yes, the inverted commas are needed. But this Black Friday, Mainline Menswear will be knocking 25% off 250 designer items on their website. Their sale starts on Friday 25th November and runs through to Monday 28th November. And the exciting part is they haven’t yet revealed which items will be reduced!

Mainline Menswear – My choices

As I don’t know which items will be in the Mainline Menswear sale, I’m going to select an outfit from across their website. I’m aiming to dress my husband for winter in smart casual clothes that we both like. I recently ordered him a Jord watch which he loved, but that was mainly because I’d let him choose it himself. This time, I’m in charge. Wish me luck!


Mainline Menswear have a huge footwear section. They have a lot of casual shoes that I know he would love, but in winter boots are just so much more practical aren’t they? So I’m compromising. I know he loves Converse, but he really doesn’t need another pair. So I’ve found these brown Converse boots. They’re definitely on the casual side of smart-casual, but I think they look fab!Shopping In The Mainline Menswear Black Friday Sale


In my humble opinion, you can’t beat a good pair of black jeans. Men can get away with wearing black jeans as a smart option, yet they can be dressed down and worn with a casual outfit too. My husband does’t have any jeans that I love, so I’ve chosen a pair that I’d really like to see him in. These black Armani jeans will be brilliant quality – because Armani only make good quality garments. And I think they look smart and would be a good fit.Shopping In The Mainline Menswear Black Friday Sale


If we’re going out somewhere vaguely respectable (this is rare) my husband likes to put on a shirt. I’m ashamed to say I don’t know what brand of shirts he usually buys, but I do know that he has a few Superdry t-shirts. So I’m going for this Superdry shirt. I don’t like loud shirts and a few of the Superdry ones are quite colourful. This one is much more sedate. I like the colour and the Superdry logo is quite subtle.Shopping In The Mainline Menswear Black Friday Sale


As it’s winter and I’m forcing him into a short-sleeved shirt, I thought I’d better choose a jumper as well. I would usually choose a hoody, but it wouldn’t really go with the smart-casual look. So I put a bit more thought into it. I have decided on this Michael Kors stripey jumper. I think it goes well with the colours I’ve chosen and it’s quite bright without being loud.Shopping In The Mainline Menswear Black Friday Sale


Mainline Menswear have a great selection of jackets. It actually makes me wish they sold ladies clothes. However, back to my husband. Whilst I want to choose a jacket that goes with the rest of the outfit, I can’t bring myself to pick something that he wouldn’t use regularly. Last year, I reviewed a ladies softshell jacket and I’ve worn it virtually every day since. This black jacket from The North Face is a similar idea. It’s warm and ideal for all weathers, yet it will look smart with the right outfit.Shopping In The Mainline Menswear Black Friday SaleSo what do you think, do I have a promising career as a male fashion stylist ahead of me? Or is my husband going to be walking around looking like a prize plum? Either way, the Mainline Menswear sale starts over on their website on Friday 25th November and runs through to Monday 28th November with 25% off selected items.

    Haha! I know exactly what you mean by ‘style’ R is exactly the same. I recently bought him a multi pack of plain crew neck t shirts and actually feared rejection!!

    Good point about black jeans too. R doesn’t have any black jeans!! He has a pair of black chinos but he wears them for work when he has a smart casual type job. Also, love those converse boots!! I had issues getting R to wear a pair of normal trainers, as in not walking shoes type of normal trainers. Would love him to wear something like that!!

    Great choices! I love those boots and you know we’re all huge Superdry fans here. My husband has a pair of black Armani jeans for ‘best’. I think I’ll have to check this site out for Christmas, thanks.

    Despite studying textiles and fashion into higher education, I haven’t a clue when it comes to mens fashion… Which is just great when I have a husband and two sons!! I’d like to be able to select great pieces that would create a number of outfits. I do love those Converse boots though, we’re big Converse fans in this house! x
