Shopping for clothes at the mall now seems about as antiquated as returning VHS tapes to Blockbuster or getting Polio shots. And that's because buying legit stylish menswear online has never been easier.

Thanks to a wave of well-curated menswear sites--spanning upscale destinations like Mr. Porter to veteran mega retailers like J. Crew--it's a cinch to upgrade your wardrobe at home while watching the game, binging on Netflix or waiting for pizza to be delivered.

Here are nine online style sites that you should be checking on the regular. 

1. Uniqlo


Uniqlo is massively popular Japanese import that rivals fast-fashion behemoths like H&M and Zara. It may not be as trendy as the aforementioned options, but you can't beat its sheer affordability and classic pieces. A lightweight down parka from Uniqlo is as versatile as it is practical, and there are always plenty of button-downs, flannels and cheap outerwear to choose from.

Ultra Light Down Parka: $79.90

2. H&M


H&M is where you shop when you need something edgier, but don't want to break the bank chasing trends. Try one of its denim jackets or colorful floral shirts on for size, and with prices like these, you can afford to stock up.

3. Asos


Asos is like a more pared-back H&M, and it's just as cheap. Its acid-wash denim shirts and jeans come in all manner of fits and styles so you'll always find something you'll like. It's a cut above more basic retail brands like Gap, and the prices are on point.

4. Buck Mason


Buck Mason is one of those fast-rising L.A.-based brands you hadn't heard of until it was suddenly everywhere. Its classic T-shirts and henleys, made in durable American pima cotton, exemplify the brand's mix of rugged fabrics and clean designs.

5. Mr. Porter


Once you get that promotion, or hit the jackpot, you'll be spending a lot of time on Mr. Porter. The "global online retail destination" stocks all the major top-shelf brands, like Gucci, Tom Ford and Moncler. It's not cheap, but you can fine some seriously fine threads here.

Paul Smith Wool And Cashmere-Blend Overcoat: $950

6. Topman


Topman, the men's counterpart to British fast-fashion retailer Topshop, is like the cooler older brother of H&M. You can find all the buzzy trends here, but without as many brash colors or showy fabrics. There's something for a night on the town or even your next job interview. 

Burgundy Short Sleeve Zip Knitted Polo: $50

Navy Stretch Twill Pants: $70

7. J.Crew


J.Crew is ailing, and it needs your help. Although the retailer has been in a rough spot for the last few years, its Ludlow suit remains de rigueur for any guy looking to upgrade his wardrobe. Buzzy sneaker collaborations with New Balance are also slowly hacking away at its East Coast prep vibe. With good prices to boot, J.Crew is always a good move.

8. Club Monaco


Club Monaco sells a bit of everything, but it's your best bet for a crisp casual shirt that'll work well in both settings of business and pleasure. This brand is tailored for the more urban and sophisticated guy. 

Slim Large Plaid Shirt: $89.50

9. Filson


Filson, on the other hand, is perfect for outdoorsy types who like stuff that's built to last. The Seattle-based brand, best known for its ever-popular bags and briefcases, makes remarkably well-constructed outerwear and rough-and-tumble shirts that definitely won't come apart in the wash.
