The worst thing about Amazon is having to machete your way through an endless forest of merchandise—especially when it comes to trawling for the best menswear on Amazon. The best thing about the House That Bezos Built is that it stocks everything you could ever need: household items, electronics, impulse buys (water garden fish tank, anyone?), grooming products, and yes, men’s clothing, all shipped straight to your door. Unfortunately, you gotta sift through a lot of trash to find the stuff that’s actually worth some closet space. Plug ‘plain white T-shirt’ into the search bar and you’ll get more than 200 results. Looking to buy a watch? You’ll have to scroll through 22 pages of options.

So that’s why we did the carpal tunnel-causing hunting for you, zeroing in on the best clothing, shoes, and accessories available at chez Bezos. These are the freshest, flyest, fastest-shipping-est men’s wardrobe essentials on the ‘Zon, from of-the-moment running shoes to a denim trucker you can wear with everything.

The Best Basics on Amazon

First things first: Amazon is absolutely the place to stock up on basics like underwear, socks, and T-shirts. Basics are like breakfast—they’re the most important meal, er, garments of the day. If you’re freeballing your way around town, it doesn’t matter how nice your jeans are. That’s straight-up nasty. If you don’t know where to start, Calvin Klein’s earth-shattering undies have consistently gotten our stamp of approval time and time again. And while the quest for The Perfect White Tee may be more about the friends we made along the way, we do really like Gildan’s crew T-shirts for their classic shape and midweight fabric.

The Best Shoes on Amazon

If your current sneakers, loafers, boots, or dress shoes need replacing, Amazon has something to offer for all of the above. Hell, shoes is probably the best thing the mega-store does, at least as far as menswear goes. For sneakers, we have to start with the trendiest sneakers of the moment, Adidas Samba sneakers. For boots, you’re spoiled for choices: Red Wing, Blundstone, and Timberland all sell their most beloved, hardest-wearing kicks. And for the desk jockeys heading into the office, you can add the classic Dr. Martens “Adrian” loafers or Allen Edmonds’ Lennon Derby Lug Oxford to your next Prime haul.

The Best Accessories & Watches on Amazon

Amazon has a surprisingly robust selection of men’s accessories, including watches, sunglasses, and other EDC items. We do recommend making sure you’re purchasing directly from Amazon and not a random third-party storefront, but once you’ve done your due diligence, you can find year-round deals on accessories that will never go out of style—Ray-Ban sunglasses, Calvin Klein underwear, and Timex watches. Watch lovers building out their collection should also check out our in-depth guide to the best watches on Amazon for men.

The Best Pants and Jeans on Amazon

Amazon’s denim department is surprisingly packed with solid options. So much that we had to compile a whole list of the best jeans on Amazon. But a pair of classic Levi’s 501 jeans is just where it starts; Amazon’s got a gaggle of good pants available, whether you’re after some hard-wearing work pants like the perennial favorite Dickies 874 pants or some office-appropriate slacks like that of the Italian label Zanella. If you’re shopping for shorts on Amazon, it’s slim pickings. You can check out our guide to our favorite spring menswear finds on Amazon for more ideas. As a starting point, the classic Land’s End chino shorts are versatile bottoms (no pun intended) that won’t cover too much of your thighs.

But you can expect plenty of perennial favorites from menswear stalwarts like Lacoste’s iconic polo shirts, Pendleton’s real-deal flannels, Ralph Lauren’s Oxford button-up shirts, and even cowboy-approved denim shirts from Levi’s.

How We Made These Picks

When buying clothes on Amazon, you have to be careful. While you can find a surprising number of designer clothing and everyday staples on Amazon, Primeland is also chock full of fast fashion brands. We recommend avoiding any brand that you haven’t heard of before, full stop. Fortunately, that still leaves you with plenty of options.

In putting together our guide to the best menswear on Amazon, we consulted GQ style writers and editors. We looked for clothing, footwear, and accessories that our staffers personally wear and love—and which just so happen to come with Prime 2-day shipping and free returns. You can find the overwhelming majority of the products featured in this guide in our team members’ closets and dressers.

We also consulted various GQ shopping guides—and we recommend that you do the same—for additional inspiration. To get started, check out our rundown of the best jeans on Amazon, the best hoodies on Amazon, the best summer clothing on Amazon, and the best workout clothes on Amazon.
