About The Idle Man

The Idle Man exists to make you look good with minimum hassle. We’re an online men’s destination that champions style over fashion.


We scout the world for “best in class” men’s brands. We don’t sell everything – only the right things which will make you look and feel your best.

own label

The Idle Man brand is sourced from the same factories that make your favourite designer labels. By selling online direct to our customers we cut out the middleman and pass the savings on to you.

It’s not just about clothes: check out our blog where you’ll find opinions on style, music and life. We also offer a free personal styling service, in case you’re in the market for some advice.


In October 2016 we launched our first London guide store at 97 Leather Lane which stocks our own label range and brands including Barbour, Grenson, Levi Vintage and Redwing. Simply browse our London store or book an appointment with one of our stylists for a free one-to-one consultation. Visit the store here.


In the Spring of 2014, Oliver Tezcan left his job at Asos.com after a decade working in menswear to set up his own business. A frustration with the lack of attention paid to men by mainstream retailers led him to build The Idle Man. He hasn’t looked back since.

Despite their youth, our team got their foot in the door at places like Selfridges, Topman, Asos, River Island, Amazon and FHM. A motley crew that came together thanks to a passion for menswear.

We work out of our office and studio in London’s Shoreditch, whilst our warehouse and eager to please customer care team are based in Manchester.
