Mirage Menswear

Our Mirage Menswear store on Portsmouth’s popular high street offered a wide range of men’s designer lifestyle brands - this store is now closed, allowing us to continue to operate efficiently and focus on the success of Escape. 


We pride ourselves on offering exceptional customer service, both in our menswear stores and online. A key focus, especially in the fashion industry, will always be attention to detail.

Our staff are also extremely knowledgeable about the brands we stock and this pride in their work is shown by the fact they wear the brands too. We want you to get high quality clothing, while enjoy shopping with us, and also enjoying great value for money.


Originally trading online since 2005 and with the lower costs of running an online shop, we were able to sell top branded menswear clothing at unbeatable prices, while maintaining first rate customer service. Sadly the Coronavirus pandemic drastically affected many businesses on a global scale, and ours was no exception; shifting our focus to our in-store offering allowed us to streamline our operations and maintain our position in the local market.

We are proud to have been able to support our in-store customers during this period and are pleased to once again be available online - the all new Escape Menswear website represents our renewed vision of offering our customers a wide range of designer menswear items online.
