It does sometimes feel like we neglect you here at Alt Fashion, but fret not there is a world of alternative menswear out there to sample, you don't have to be restricted to black t-shirts and baggy camo's. We'll be bringing you a few select guides to alternative menswear starting with the gothic end of the spectrum, from cravats and waistcoats to squeaky clean latex.


For those who prefer to take a gander through a wide selection of items to choose your poison, you of course can't go wrong with alternative emporium's such as Attitude clothing and Kates clothing who have a wide range of clothing, accessories and footwear to choose from.


Dependant on your gothic preferences, you may prefer a touch of steampunk to a more metal approach at gothic fashion or even dabble in a more romantic gothic look, so it's hard to know just where to start. To help we've picked a select few designers and companies who you may want to pay a visit.


If it's chains, studs, zombies and grim reapers that you prefer you may want to pay a visit to the likes of Darkside, Ed Stone and Spiral direct who have a wide range of graphic t-shirts, studded trousers and accessories to choose from.
