The list of basic essentials that should constitute the wardrobe of every stylish man is not particularly long. There are a few vital pieces of clothing that every man should have in his wardrobe in order to ensure that you are ready for every occasion. These pieces are crowd-pleasing, versatile and easy to sell, and can be found at fantastic wholesale prices via Whispering Smith.
A white button-down shirt
There’s very little that won’t go with a button-down shirt. Worn with a suit for a more casual look, under a crew neck jumper at the weekend or teamed with a pair of chinos and a statement belt, this is the most versatile item in your wardrobe. Opt for a shirt cut from thick, soft cotton.
A navy blue crew neck jumper
A cotton mix crew neck in an adaptable shade of navy can be worn with pretty much everything and will act as a layer in winter and a feature piece in summer. A faultless piece that should be the staple of every man’s wardrobe.
Slim, navy chino trousers
A good alternative to jeans and great if you don’t want to wear suit trousers, slim navy chinos are ideal for summer or winter. Wear with a shirt, shirt and jacket, t-shirt, t-shirt and bomber – the options are endless.
A petrol blue suit
If you wear a suit to work you should always own more than one. A petrol blue, a single-breasted option is a great place to start. This darker blue colour is the perfect way to look professional, trendy and stylish.
A denim jacket
The denim jacket, it’s easier to wear than you think, worn under an unlined navy blazer, worn over a loopback sweatshirt or simple tee, or even worn with a pair of jeans in a different hue, the look you should go for is casual, but in control.
Slim indigo jeans
A good pair of jeans should be slim, but not too tight, stiff but not so stiff that you can’t bend your legs and they should also be blue, naturally. A pair of classic dark selvedge denim tick all those boxes and then some.
A good quality, white t-shirt
Because this will go with everything you own. Just be sure to invest in something cut from high-quality cotton. Not only will an expensive fabric feel better against your skin, anything sub-par will suffer at the hands of your washing machine.
A beige trench
Perfect for spring, a proper double-breasted trench coat will keep out the rain and look as sharp when worn over your suit as it will with a t-shirt and jeans.
A bomber jacket
What was once a passing trend is now a bona fide menswear essential. A bomber jacket packs an outer layer that looks good on everyone, so invest in a simple, clean-cut in a dark, versatile shade.
A navy blazer
A navy blazer is the perfect piece of transition tailoring. For the colder months go for a darker shade in brushed cotton, but know that lighter fabrics will easily slot among other layers.
