There’s no doubt that men love to feel and look good, but let’s face it, many of us would rather not spend hours scrolling through various online pages searching for the most stylish but durable clothing, sneakers or a great necktie. We love to make our fashion decisions the same way we decide everything else; quick, decisive, and without a fuss.
The great news is we’ve curated a list of some of the best in this article, with all the wardrobe essentials you’ll need in your closet as a modern man. From J Crew to Tom Ford and even Bulgari, this article lists our top clothing recommendations for men.
There are two major types of suits; the made-to-measure suits and the bespoke suits. The former is an excellent alternative to the latter when you have a limited budget, but both work well to serve their purpose: making you look good.
After a well-tailored suit, not too many things can help boost a man’s morale, and it comes as no surprise. Suits, when tailored well, offer an impeccable fitting that makes you look good. Pair this up with a men’s designer tie, pocket squares, a lovely shirt, and you’re well on your way to making heads turn. When choosing a suit, be practical with your color choices. If you don’t wear many suits and you wish to start, opt for a dark gray or navy suit, and make sure that it reflects your style while enhancing your physique.
A Trench Coat
Everyday wearers of the raincoat love the standard Burberry design. Trench coats are meant to keep you dry in cold weather while protecting you from sudden showers. As a bonus, the trench coat adds a touch of mystery to your look—remember Sherlock Holmes and Watson?
Be sure to invest in a comfortable rain jacket if it’ll be used for daily wear. The best rain jacket for men shouldn’t come with a hefty price tag but should be quality, with good breathability.
Next is the much-needed black dress shoes. These are probably the best shoes any man can start their wardrobe with. Black dress shoes have an aura to them that can’t be matched, and they exude elegance with their simple, uncluttered look; as a plus, they can be worn with your everyday wear. They’re simply perfect!
Men should consider the ever-popular Oxfords, specifically the black cap-toe Oxfords. These are a great option and can be purchased from every American and English shoe brand. It’s always a good idea to choose an affordable option that matches your budget but has been built to last for higher value for money. To make these shoes last longer, rotate between pairs.
A White Shirt
Another best choice when picking men’s clothing is a pristine white shirt, with French cuffs and a spread collar, made from the best fabric. It helps to have at least have two shirts in your wardrobe, which will allow you to use one on regular occasions while the other is tucked away in anticipation of a special occasion like a surprise party. White shirts are great because they offer versatility when dressing up and can be worn with various colors and blend effortlessly, making a great addition to any wardrobe.
Handkerchiefs are a replacement for pocket squares, but any of both is a great choice. Linen handkerchiefs are great because they’re functional, and you can use them for anything from cleaning your glasses to blowing your nose and even wiping the tears from your lady’s eyes. We mention linen and not cotton because the line is more durable. They last so long they can be handed down from generation to generation.
Men’s fashion has grown over the last decade, accommodating thousands of brands with amazing ethical products of great value and quality. We hope the above-listed clothing recommendations make a difference in your style.
