The 7 Pieces of Modern Wear Every Man Should Own
We’re already far into 2022 and if you've spent much of the year wandering the streets in ill-fitting clothing, we're here to help. We’ll tell you how to stock your closet with the basics every man should have.
We're not going to dwell on the downsides, like the fashion faux pas you committed or the optimistic resolutions you failed to stick to; instead, let's work on something within your power: your wardrobe.
Whether you're revamping your entire wardrobe or just filling in the gaps since the end-of-season bargains are on, these items will keep your style on point and on track through every season. You can put together any outfit you want with these staples of the modern man's closet, and even add a few surprising twists here and there.
The following essentials create the perfect base for layering, accessorizing, and looking effortlessly stylish:
Silk Polo Shirt for Daily Wear
When it comes to wardrobe staples, the silk polo is one of the few that can help you easily transition between smart and casual settings. Many well-dressed men now wear nothing but silk polos to the office or on a date, whether it be tucked into pleated pants or paired with their favorite pair of jeans. The lack of buttons and the finer fabric give it an air of sophistication that can elevate your formals.
You should stock up on silk polos in timeless colors like navy blue, wine red, white, and black. You can now build upon your ensemble by adding a coat and other accessories.
White Button-down Shirt for Formal Events
Think of the white dress shirt as the canvas onto which the rest of your traditional wardrobe will be painted. The white dress shirt is supposed to be a basic shirt, but that doesn't mean it has to be boring. You should get a shirt tailored to your exact measurements to ensure the finest fit. Wearing clothes that fit you properly make all the difference in amping up your style and confidence.
Select a fabric with a light to moderate weight and a subtle weave or pattern, like herringbone, for year-round wearability. The classic white shirt is perfect for more formal occasions because of its clean look. Rather than a button-down or other soft collar, choose a sturdy, medium-spread collar.
Every closet needs a quality pair of jeans because they are equally versatile for dressier occasions (with a navy blue blazer and white shirt) and more casual outings (with sneakers and a black hoodie). The fit should be slim at the ankles, and the hems should be rolled up to reveal pristine white sneakers or chestnut brown Derbies. Even better if they're made of comfy denim and have cool details like rips and exposed stitching.
Make sure you get a pair of jeans that fit you well in all the right places. If you’re getting a new pair, it might feel stiff and awkward at first. But don’t worry – the denim will eventually loosen up once you wear it more often.
Trench Coat for Layering
A classic trench coat is a wardrobe staple that may be worn for several seasons or even the full winter in many parts of the world. The double-breasted, belted, and buckled design, reminiscent of military attire, is both stylish and sophisticated. Invest in a timeless sheepskin coat that can be worn year-round. Our motorcycle-style spin on the traditional brown trench coat, or one in black, is the perfect jacket to bring on a trip.
The Bona Fide Bomber Jacket
Once only a fad, the bomber jacket is now a permanent feature in every fashionable man's wardrobe. Indulge in a simple, straightforward cut in a dark, neutral shade, and you'll have an outer layer that works for everybody. Mix and match a bomber jacket with a printed tee and ripped jeans, a basic polo shirt, and you already have two different outfits.
Comfy and Casual Leather Slippers
Leather flip flop slippers, which show off your toes, are a wardrobe essential if you want to channel the spirit of the ancient Egyptians. At the end of a summer's day, nothing screams "vacation" like a pair of brown leather flip flops at the bottom of a pair of fluttering linen trousers or a pair of baggy cargo shorts.
Choose a pair of brown slippers for a look that won't go out of style anytime soon. They'll get a lot of wear throughout the off-season when paired with matching socks. On the other hand, if you want to dress things up a notch, you can't go wrong with classic black leather slippers.
A Versatile Printed Tee
It may come as a surprise to find a printed t-shirt on our list, but a shirt with an interesting print can be worn with many other bottoms and tops. There are so many ways to style a printed tee, which makes it a versatile addition to your closet.
T-shirts are a great way to add some vibrancy and contrast to an otherwise monochromatic outfit. They allow you to get more wear out of your jacket collection by expanding the ways you can mix and match them. Finally, they are straightforward in terms of sizing and fitting.
Almost every basic color a man owns will look good with a leopard or camo print. You probably already own a few accessories, and a printed shirt is a wonderful way to incorporate them into a variety of looks.
