Menswear Must Haves in Newark

There's just something about the sight of a well-dressed man - sporting a crisp shirt under a tailored jacket, colorful socks peeking out of shoes made of the finest Italian leather, perfectly groomed and manscaped facial hair, smelling of fragrant sandalwood with the slightest aroma of money honey - that can seemingly make the world stop spinning!


But of course, style is subjective. So whether your favorite menswear look consists of army jackets and African dashikis, neckties and nerd glasses, or boat shoes and button ups, looking your best can mean something different to everyone. But there is one thing we can all agree on: looking great is a mandatory stop on the way to feeling great.

So where does a sartorially-inclined gentlemen go to shop for a few fresh pieces or products in the great city of Newark? Good news! No matter if you're attending an outdoor music festival, a VIP business meeting, a black tie wedding, or drinks at your favorite dive bar - Newark has some awesome shopping choices for every occasion.
And let's be honest - dressing well will never go out of style.

That being said, let me, Newark's Glambassador, be your guide to the best stops and shops for menswear must haves in Newark:
