Great news for guys looking to get kitted out for the start of the autumn term – online men’s fashion retailer The Idle Man is offering students an exclusive 20% discount off full-price items.
To get your discount, you simply have to connect with Student Beans iD to verify your student status (it’s easy and free to set up if you haven’t already done so).
The Idle Man provides advice as well as products suited to the modern male, with an online style guide to help you keep abreast of the latest trends and how to wear them, along with a collection of outfits to give you inspiration when choosing what to wear this autumn and winter. The company’s brands cater for every style, with Levi’s, Vans, Majestic Athletic, Farah Vintage and Religion being perfect examples of its range’s diversity. Styling itself as ‘the go-to men’s fashion retailer for guys on all budgets looking for the best in men’s apparel’, whether you’re looking for street style, work wear or formal fashion, the Idle Man’s got it covered.
The company’s own-brand clothing range is continuously growing and its buyers and designers take care and time in choosing the highest quality fabrics and put every item through strict testing for both quality and fitting. To celebrate the site’s student discount, we were kindly sent a tweed blazer, a smart black shirt and black skinny fit jeans – all by The Idle Man’s own brand – to ‘test-drive’…
The Idle Man tweed blazer in slim fit
Tweed jackets are always a winner, perfect for dressing up or down. This grey number would look great with either a smart shirt or just a t-shirt, and would make a handy addition to any fashion-savvy student’s autumn wardrobe – especially if you need a bit of versatility or some smarter dinner-date wear to impress your love interest at uni! It retails at £75 full price, but it’s a quality item and once the 20% student discount is applied, you’d be looking at shelling out £60. We particularly like the jacket’s slim fit and details like the retro buttons, stylish black lining and the three handy inside pockets.
Size: 36–44″ chest
Price: £75 (£60 with student discount)
The Idle Man smart shirt in black
The Idle Man has gone for a clean look on its shirts, with no breast pockets, which we like as it means the shirt can be worn on a big night out with jeans or paired with a blazer and some formal trousers for a smarter look. At only £13.60 once the student discount has been applied, this is a great staple for any discerning student’s collection.
Size: S (34–36″ chest) to XL (42–44″ chest)
Price: £17 (£13.60 with student discount)
The Idle Man jeans in skinny fit
These skinny-fit jeans are ideal for sportier students, as the added stretch would make them a comfy fit for even the chunkiest rugby player’s pins. And don’t worry if you’re a on the tall and skinny side (or just prefer your jeans rock-star tight!), as they’re also available in a super-skinny fit.
With a jet black colour for a smarter finish, these jeans are another classic wardrobe staple and would make a great addition to any student’s wardrobe. The Idle Man works directly with factories to remove the fees that usually go to the middle-men who liaise between retailers and brands, which means these jeans cost just over £20 once the student discount has been applied.
Size: 28″ waist (short) to 36″ waist (long)
Price: £26 (£20.80 with student discount)
You can check out these items and the rest of the Idle Man’s own brand clothes at TheIdleMan.com. With free delivery within three to five working days on all orders above £30, and guaranteed next-day delivery for £5.95 if you need something urgently and place your order before 5pm, we reckon the site’s well worth a look!
