What Brands Are Similar To Martin + Osa?

I love the clothes of Martin & Osa, what other stores have similar clothes?

I'm male, late 20s, average height and build (5ft 9, 77kgs). I love the clothes of Martin & Osa because they're stylish, incredibly well made, good quality material, durable and feel really good. Also, their slim-fit range actually fits me.

I consistently wear their clothes more than others in my wardrobe. Because I'm UK based, I have no idea of what other American/Canadian shops do similar things. Any pointers appreciated.

In the US, you would probably like J. Crew and Banana Republic. Probably similar in quality to M&O as well.

M+O is owned by American Eagle Outfitters, so you might try there as well

I think clothes from Promod are similar.

This looks like some of the stuff from Zara, to me.

Response by poster: I should point out that I'm male

Sperry (http://www.sperrytopsider.com/store/) has nautical-inspired clothing that looks similar to a lot of what Martin+Osa have been carrying lately.

Too bad! I was excited to watch this question since a large portion of my wardrobe is made up of Martin & Osa. I've always been disappointed that the men's stuff seemed a bit less unique than the women's. There's something about the detailing that I haven't found from J. Crew, Banana Republic, et. al. For men they are both probably good ideas though.

Lands End just released a new line of clothes called Lands End Canvas. It's received many favorable reviews from online fashion bloggers. Quality is supposedly what you would expect from Lands End, but the cuts are slimmer and the styling is more akin to J Crew.

LL Bean is also due to come out with a new line in the same vein as LE Canvas, J.Crew, Banana Rep.

M + O is going away, incidentally.
