The essentials in men’s wardrobe

When it comes to creating a men’s wardrobe, there is a lot to put away in your closet so you can always be ready for anything.

If you do not feel ready for special events and parties, this list will help you become a better gentleman. Every gentleman’s wardrobe should consist of several important elements:

  • Suits:
    navy blue and gray. It does not matter if you have to dress well for work or not, you have to wear these suits, they are a must.
  • Jackets / blazers:
    Invest in items you can wear with dress pants, jeans, over a sweater … You can choose with a print or a solid fabric. It depends on your style. I prefer the checkered and checkered Glen patterns.

  • Shirts –

You must have at least 5 suit shirts, one for each working day for a week. Small white and light light blue. It can also include one or two blacks. They can go very well with a gray suit. If you like patterns, choose striped shirts to start. They are smarter with business than those with checks, but if you prefer checks, go for checkered checks. It is a versatile model because you can use it for both business and casual occasions. Also get more personalized t-shirts. These can have several models. Gingham pattern, mattress or Scottish checkerboard if desired. But it starts with the dresses.

    black and brown. For starters, you can buy classic derby shoes or Oxford laces. Then you can expand your collection with brogues, desert boots, etc.

  • Coats: The same rule applies as for suits and sweaters. Focus on quality. A good coat will serve you for years. Buy a coat with a classic look, or you can buy a pea coat. Canvas coats are an option too, but I do not like them. If you can afford it, get yourself a good coat.

Make a shopping list:

Try to make a list of the things you need and the things you would like. Make yourself a priority for next season. If winter is coming around, you may need a new pair of gloves and a scarf. Maybe a new tweed suit. Stick to what you need and buy these things first.

You may be tempted to buy a pair of shoes because they look good, but a new suit may be a better investment if you have trampled them for a while and they start to wear out. Keep track of the things you need or items to replace in your husband’s wardrobe.

That does not mean you can not buy something just because you want to, as long as you make sure you have everything you need before you are spoiled.

If your budget allows it, you can indulge in anything you want but have a plan. There is no point in buying clothes that you can not match with something you already have.

Have a budget

Once you have made a list, set a budget for yourself. If you do not know how much to reserve, look. Find some menswear brands that you like and find out their average prices. See how much you can spend on the clothes you need.

First, buy less. Shop smarter. Check the prices in different stores. Do not go to a store and buy immediately. Take your time and be patient. Visit more stores and compare prices.

Make a plan for how much you want to spend on a costume, how much you want to spend on a coat, how much you want to spend on accessories. If the sales season is approaching, wait and maybe buy some quality products to sell.

Quality over quantity

Better to have three good quality suits that you can wear for years to come than seven cheap suits that wear out in a season or two. Yes, quality costs more, but it will be cheaper in the long run. This is especially true for shoes. I bought a lot of shoes that cost around 100 euros ($ 130) and they lasted no more than a year or two.

Since most of them are not sewn but glued, they break more easily. If you buy some high quality pairs carefully, you can wear them for more than 10 years. No need to buy designer shoes. The cheapest option is to visit some of the local shoemakers and they may be able to manufacture the shoes for you based on your needs. It costs you less and you get what you want. In the end, you will be more satisfied.

You can never have enough pocket squares either.

Choose the perfect fit

Buy clothes that suit you. If you have gained weight and plan to lose weight and return to your normal height, postpone the purchase. Do not buy something that suits you now, and in two months you will lose 10 kg. Then it gets too big and wastes your money. Also, do not buy items that look beautiful but do not match your figure. Do not follow fashion, follow your style.

If some things do not fit perfectly, you may be able to easily change them with your tailor. Fit also goes hand in hand with quality. If something is of good quality, it keeps its shape as opposed to cheap items that can stretch or shrink over time.

Purchase of accessories

Having a wide variety of accessories in your closet is great. They add an extra touch to your style. The great thing about accessories is that you can sometimes buy things cheaper, but for the things you like, you will have to invest a little more. For example, I have always wanted to wear driving gloves. Since I wear them a lot in the colder days, I bought some good quality gloves that cost a lot more than cheap. I knew I wanted to use them a lot and I wanted them to last.

Sometimes you can buy cheaper things that you want to wear for a season or two. Cheaper scarves, handkerchiefs, ribbons. These are things that you can save a certain amount on and invest in bigger clothes.

Sales are huge, but beware.

Sales are good, because sometimes you can really find quality products in small quantities, but sales can be a big trap. A trap that you can easily fall into and spend a lot of money on things that you do not need and will only spend once or twice.

Black and brown shoes are a must.

Women are experts in this field. Do not fall into this trap. It does not matter if something is incredibly priced, but if you do not need it, do not buy it. Stick to your plan and goals. If you find something you really need to sell, buy it; If not, do not buy anything to buy things as it is a bargain.

Do not follow fashion

Fashion is big business. It changes from season to season. Maybe you thought the black leather pants were cool, but next year you’re throwing them away because they look stupid.

The style always changes: one minute it’s a popular thing, and the next everyone acts as if they’ve never heard of it. Stick to your own style when designing a men’s wardrobe and you do not have to worry so much about style changes.

You can turn to another man for inspiration, but do not follow his style blindly. Build your own. Fashion lasts all season, the style of a gentleman’s wardrobe is timeless.

You can look for inspiration in other man, but do not follow their style blindly. Build your own. Fashion is season long, style in a gentleman’s wardrobe is eternal.

Build your style

It takes you time to find your own style. Start small. Buy cheaper products and try them. See how you like them. Do other people compliment you on your style? Once you have found what you like, start investing in better and more expensive products. This process is long and will take years to develop your own style. Believe me, your views on the world are not the same in the late twenties and late thirties.

Invest in few good quality sports jackets and blazers.

Less is more

Try to dress simple. I’m not telling you how to dress or what to buy. If you prefer a more elegant style, choose it. If you are more of a classic man, you should buy classic clothes. Regardless of your style, you need to have simpler clothes in your closet. Various white shirts, small black, light blue, gray suit, navy blue suit, black and brown shoes. These are the cornerstones of any wardrobe.

Build on them. Then you can combine them with other things. Navy blue jacket with jeans and brown shoes. It’s a combination. These simple and important elements can be combined in a number of ways.

Be patient

If there are things you can not afford, do not look. Do not get frustrated or obsessed with clothes. It should be fun. Save money for future shopping visits if you can. You do not have to buy everything now. It also takes time to build a good wardrobe. Rome was not built in a day either.
