7 Essential wears Every Man Should Have In His Closet


7 Men Essential Wears - Classic Clothes Every man Should Have


Fashion is a fickle thing. Seasons change, trends flux and what’s “in” one day is “out” the next. Style, however, is a different matter. Here are seven basic pieces every man should own. Whether you’re a lawyer, a stay-at-home dad, or even a professional video game player, all of these garments should be hanging in your closet. While you might wear some of these more often than others, all of these are absolute necessities.


1. A White Shirt

There’s very little that won’t go with a button-down shirt. Worn with a suit for a more casual look, under a crew neck jumper at the weekend or teamed with a pair of slim chinos and a statement belt, this is the most versatile item in your wardrobe.



2. Selvedge Jeans

There’s nothing more American than a great pair of jeans. Get a sturdy pair in dark blue—there’s literally nothing they won’t go well with.



3. Tailored Suit in Black or Gray

All guys need at least one suit that is perfectly tailored to their bodies. Modern suits are slimmer cuts than those that were popular in the ’80s or ’90s, so a sloppy suit could imply that you’re woefully behind the times.


Why stick with black and gray? They’re the two best colors to get the most mileage out of your suit. From work to weddings, and from funerals to a formal date, a classic, tailored black or gray suit can be worn in a number of ways.


4. Herschel Supply Co. Men's Roy RFID Wallet

Ditch that bulky leather contraption and get a money holder with a little flair. Herschel's wallets come with a RFID layer which blocks people from secretly scanning your ID or cards.



5. Denim jacket

Donned by 19th century US railroad workers and gold rushers as well as 20th-century pop culture icons, the denim jacket belongs in every man’s wardrobe — and for good reason. It can be easily used as a layering piece under a long wool coat during the cold months, or, slung over a plain T-shirt in warmer weather.



6. Gray Crewneck Sweater


A fine gauge sweater is the perfect in-between layer for when it’s not cold enough for a jacket but not warm enough for one layer. Gray compliments most other things you’ll have in your closet, like, you know a white Oxford or selvedge jeans.



7. Two Really Good Belts

If you’re not wearing a bespoke pair of trousers, you’re going to need something to make sure your pants don’t slip. Get one black belt and one brown belt made from a sturdy leather and you’ll be set for life.
