If there was ever any doubt, we now know that online shopping for men’s clothing is easier than ever. These days, men are using the Web to shop for pretty much everything, from fresh produce to airplane tickets. The advantages online shopping provides are immediately obvious: affordable prices, the abundance of choice, the ability to compare prices and check user reviews. More than anything else, shopping online is the ultimate convenience, and – at least as far as I’m concerned – the optimal form of shopping.
Of course, there are many types of online stores out there. In this article, we’ll focus on 6pm.com, one of the most popular price-centered marketplaces on the Internet for fashion clothes and shoes. You see, 6pm’s business model is based on discounted clothes and accessories. They’re selling clearance merchandise and discontinued products at prices far lower than their market value. These products are just as authentic as the ones found in luxurious stores, and you can get them at a fraction of the manufacturer’s cost.
Considering 6pm’s wide selection of popular brands and products, I saw no reason not to check out their offer. In doing so, I stumbled upon some decent ways to save money while shopping at their website.
1. Home Page Deals
How about we start off with something obvious? If you head to 6pm’s front page, you’ll see some giant ads in the middle of the screen. They’re pretty hard to miss, so you shouldn’t have trouble spotting them. These are the so-called home page deals, and they generally feature some of the best offers you can find on the website. There are new deals available every day, and the discounts are always substantial.
This day’s theme seems to revolve around shoes. If you’re in the mood for something casual, check out Aldo Wigon sandals, which are priced 60% off their original price. For comparison’s sake, their current price is $28 while their original price was $168. If those are not really your style, how about Giorgio Brutini loafers? Right now, you can have them at a 61% discount, which brings the price down from $80 to a mere $30.
2. Clearance Closet
If you don’t know how cheap clothes and apparel can get before they’re about to be cleared from the shelves, do yourself a favor and visit 6pm’s “Clearance” page. At this moment, this category contains almost 8.000 products ranging from dresses and swimwear to hats and belts. The sheer amount of discounted items can be a little intimidating, but you can sort them by category, gender, brand, price – and even by pattern and accents!
The first thing that caught my attention was a long-sleeved V-neck sweater made by U.S. Polo Assn. Its regular price is a hefty $70, but the 81% discount cuts the cost down to $12.99. I also looked at some gifts for my girlfriend, and I think she’ll really like Romeo & Juliet Couture’s ruffle tier top – especially if she doesn’t find out I only paid $14.99 instead of the usual $130.
3. Brand Sales
Other than the daily deals, 6pm also features daily brand sales. Every day, one of the website’s most popular brands will hold a special sale that will allow you to order anything from their catalogue at a discount. You can find out which particular brand is holding a sale by going to 6pm’s main page and clicking the “Shop Now” button in the upper right corner.
Today’s featured brand is Calvin Klein, and you know what that means – shoes, shirts, costumes, jeans and bags abound! Their black-colored Elroy oxfords seem like a decent deal at $29.99 (75% discount). I also like the look of the minimalist-looking yarn-dye polo shirt, especially at 50% off ($69.50 to $34.99).
4. 6pm Newsletter
For the most part, the 6pm newsletter works the same way as any other online store newsletter. From time to time, you get information about daily deals, special sales, highlighted brands, etc. Doesn’t really seem worth our time, right? Not so fast! I found out that 6pm adds an interesting benefit – a surprise coupon that you usually get during certain events and holidays. This coupon allows you to take advantage of the most exclusive sales 6pm has to offer, so I’d say subscribing to their newsletter is definitely worth it. Coupons for 6pm are also listed at www.lodlois.com/6pm-coupon-code.
Since I had already received my coupon, I decided to utilize it right away. The whole process is quite straightforward. Once you buy your item and get to the checkout phase, simply click on the “Select Your Payment Method” option, enter your promo code in the required box and click “Apply.”
So, 6pm has made online shopping for men’s apparel really easy and affordable, carrying both fashion giants and smaller names.
