The Ten Wardrobe Essentials For Men

Prior to building a functional wardrobe, a guy must initially assess his lifestyle. If he needs to put on a suit every day, he will require several suits. For a casual work environment, he would require more khakis or jeans compared to trousers or suits. Regardless of his situation, there are things every man should have in his wardrobe.

1. A suit (navy or gray):
Although suit is needed only for a couple of times a year, it would be nice to have it readily available when those occasions occur. Gray or navy suits are suitable for many occasions as they are neutral and hence can go with any color, combination, skin tone, and occasion. You can also put on the blazer with khakis or jeans. This is a thing really worth spending some money on.

2. Black shoes and belt:
These can be worn with slacks, jeans and your suit and hence an essential combo. Before purchasing brown, get black. They would prove to be more beneficial especially while attending more formal or evening functions.

3. White dress shirt (suitable for day and night occasions):
White dress shirts look fine on just about everybody. They look sharp and are versatile but avoid wearing them as a casual shirt.

4. Solid ties:
Solid ties are trouble-free and versatile. If you are not interested in solid ties, go for a tie with diagonal stripe. Having several tie patterns on hand will ensure that you are equipped for interviews, weddings and evening events.

5. Blue blazer:
A blue blazer easily matches with khakis and other stuffs and is suitable for all year round. Or else, you could try a tweed sport coat but remember that tweed is really only useful in fall and winter. Either way a blazer or tweed sport coat holds a look together.

6. Khakis and Jeans:
Both of them are a staple of the American wardrobe.

7. Overcoat:
An overcoat is a type of long coat intended to be worn as the outermost garment. It also refers to 3/4-length or car coat length. This thing really completes an outfit and can be put on with everything including jeans.

8. Athletic wear:
Even for non-athletic persons, athletic wear will be needed for those lazy Sundays.

9. Casual shirt:
A casual shirt such as a polo or button down is a must have for your wardrobe as it could be worn with jeans or other casual pants.

10. Deconstructed suit:
It will be nice to have a deconstructed suit as it gives a relaxed look. Moreover, the slacks and blazer can be put on separately.

Don't buy something just because it is on sale or is a great deal. It must be something you would like to wear anyway and matches up with your wardrobe. Buy clothes that will make you feel comfortable, confident and fits your style.
