Wardrobe Essentials for Every Man

The White Shirt

The white shirt is a must-have for every man’s wardrobe. Made from either a plain weave or fine herringbone, which are both strong, lasting and timeless classics. The spread of the collar is best when medium, as this will work with every face shape and be paired up with almost any look. The fabric should be either made of plain cotton weave or a herringbone twill because these are classic and durable. For Farah Shirts, visit ejmenswear.com/men/farah

The Pale Blue Dress Shirt

Next on the list is a classic light blue dress shirt with a button or barrel cuff. A heavier, rougher fabric is the best choice, such as Oxford but a twill weave also works well and offers a timeless style.

Even though it’s a dress shirt, the beauty is that it can be teamed up with both casual and formal outfits, it’s that versatile.

The Flannel Suit

It looked great on Cary Grant and remains the pinnacle of style and sophistication to this day. But it’s not just Hollywood that made it popular, it’s also hugely versatile and functional. The trousers can be paired with a navy blazer to create a further classic combo. A grey flannel suit is the ideal choice for autumn/winter and suits either formal or casual occasions.

The Navy Blazer

As mentioned above, the Navy Blazer stands strong in its own right and should be a separate jacket to that which comes with your suit. A lighter navy is more casual and can be worn with flannel trousers, khakis or even jeans. Why not go for something a little different, such as choosing patch pockets over flaps and mother-of-pearl buttons?

The Trench Coat

An absolutely timeless classic that has its roots in military history. It makes the perfect raincoat with an elegant silhouette being double-breasted. It can be worn over formal suits but also looks amazing when involved in more casual combos.

The Chino

Chinos are cotton trousers that usually come in khaki, stone or sand shades. They are ideal for almost any informal occasion and offer incredible versatility. They go great with many different types of jackets or shirts and sweater combos. They can come in a pleated or flat-fronted style and are often considered appropriate for office wear as well.

The Sweater

Sweater are another essential wardrobe item for the modern, stylish gent. V-necks can be worn with a tie or crew necks with a shirt collar also look great. A sweater is the perfect layering garment, worn on its own or under a jacket or coat. They are a useful addition to any outfit during the winter months.
