Men’s fashion: Items every man should own
The burden of shopping on many men cannot be understated. It’s easier that a man owns certain things in his wardrobe: a shortlist that’s easy to follow. There are items that every man should have in their closet, items that will change the overall look of your outfit every once in a while. Items that will not grow old.
These are the most neutral of all the shoes a man could own. The lace-up, flat sole and almost high-top, over-the-ankle design allow these shoes to pass as both casual wear – looking somewhat like sneakers – and more dressy shoes. In addition, the traditional suede and canvas allow them to be worn with almost any trousers.
There is a reason this shoe is very common in today’s fashion world. Not only are they comfortable, but they also symbolise that effortless, casual and outgoing look. Besides, they are available in almost any colour of your choice, from dark colours to white.
No matter how many devices you have with a clock or how much you really don’t like looking at your wrist to tell the time, professionals wear watches – get one. Choose a watch that goes with most of the clothes you have in your closet so you don’t seem overly flashy.
A navy suit
It is time men left the black suits they wear to every occasion – graduation, giving speeches, weddings – for funerals and got themselves a navy blue suit. Navy suits complement most skin tones and like black, they are perfect for every occasion: casual, official or anywhere in between.
Simple dark ties
It is true that ties can be burdensome, but some work environments insist on them. A dark collar with stripes will go with most suits and still look great.
Dark, straight-legged, unembellished jeans
The above are great for those casual Fridays, visiting clients out of work, going to parties. In short, fit for all occasions. However, ensure that they are not pre-faded, have no studs, rips or tears and for all you hold dear, ensure they don’t sag in the wrong places.
Straight-legged khaki pants
These, like the jeans, are suitable for all occasions. The dark grey and black colours are overrated though, so try going with camel and caramel hues. Wearing them with neutral-coloured jackets and striped button shirts works great.
A plain solid coloured hoodie
These hoodies provide the comfort of the sweatshirts men want to wear every day. Something slightly fitted that sits right at the hips with sleeves and pockets, with no logo or writing, will do the job.
Solid coloured plain shirt
Like the hoodie, this item is perfect for the casual look.
A good pair of cufflinks
Most men don’t realise this but a good pair of cufflinks has the potential to make your outfit look amazing. However, you need to buy a couple of pairs for different events. A pair that would look perfect for a casual-official outfit is not appropriate for a black-tie event. When you choose correctly, the Georg Jensen cufflinks vintage will work perfectly for your outfit.
Whoever says that men only need two pairs of shoes and a pair of good jeans is wrong. Men need to take good care of their appearance so they can make a lasting impression on everyone they meet. This means looking elegant and stylish every time.
