Hey! Don’t get mad at us for stating the obvious. We are sorry but no wardrobe is complete without the basic white dress shirt. This is one item that will see you through any situation. Wear it under your suit with a tie or team it with a pair of dark denims and sports jacket to hit the club. It is hands down the most versatile piece of clothing.
When in doubt, put on your blue shirt. No matter which colour suit you pair it with, one can never go wrong with a quality blue shirt. Navy, grey or beige suits combined with a pale blue shirt are killer combinations.
You would think chinos are only meant for casual occasions. But we urge you to go break the rules and set off a new trend. Wear a pair of slim-fit chinos with a crisp white shirt and let it do all the talking.
Or shall we call it the power suit! A petrol blue single-breasted suit commands respect. There are absolutely no excuses for not owning one.
We have said this before and we reiterate. There’s nothing like a good bomber jacket that makes women go weak in the knees. Sure, the bomber is having a moment right now. However, don’t be fooled. It is a timeless classic. Invest in a fitted jacket in a dark shade.
For the same reason you MUST own a crisp white dress shirt. Duh!
Take note, we said slim-fit not skinny-fit. You don’t want to put your package on display. The fit is key. Get yourself a pair in dark blue selvedge denim.
Chukka boots are the bad boys of footwear. And who doesn’t like a bad boy, eh? Go against convention and wear chukka boots under your suit for the times when you feel like unleashing the rebel in you. They spell classy and rugged when paired with jeans.
No man’s wardrobe is complete without the mandatory simple, elegant and understated black lace-ups. You need something that can switch between a tux, suit and slacks with equal ease.
Another classic that never runs out of style! A beautiful silk burgundy tie can uplift even the drabbest of suits and shirts. It’s an eyeball grabber. Why should you be lost in a sea of navy ties when you can shine with burgundy?
