A White Shirt
A plain white shirt is an absolute essential for every modern man’s wardrobe, whether it’s a plain weave or a herringbone. Both are timeless elegant classics and work for a myriad of occasions. A button-down medium collar works well with any face shape and can be worn with virtually anything. The material should definitely be cotton weave or a herringbone twill, which are both durable and the pinnacle of style.
A Short Sleeve Shirt
A smart casual staple, this must be worn in the contemporary trend of slim fit and sleeve finishing mid-bicep. Cotton is preferable for its breathability and absorbency and looks best when worn in a plain colour, light pattern or on trend mature floral design for ultimate summer style. You will want to make sure you have plenty of coat hangers in your Hampshire Fitted Wardrobes to ensure that your shirts stay nice and pressed.
A Flannel Suit
Cary Grant looked extremely debonair in one and the flannel suit is still a masterclass in sophistication today. It has much to offer, aside from its Hollywood appeal, as it is highly versatile and functional. The suit trousers can be combined with a blazer to create another timeless look and it’s the perfect choice for autumn and winter, either formal or smart casual events.
A Navy Blazer
This is one of the strongest items in a man’s wardrobe and stands separately to the jacket that comes with your suit. A navy blazer can be combined with khakis, jeans or flannel trousers and dressed up in the details with mother of pearl buttons or a patch pocket, for example.
A Trench Coat
Another classic piece, this coat has a past in military history. It is the ideal raincoat and comes with an amazing silhouette when worn in a double-breasted style. It can work well in a casual outfit but looks at its best when thrown over the top of a formal suit.
These cotton trousers are incredibly popular thanks to their versatility and comfort. Choose a pair in a light neutral shade like stone, sand or khaki and pair up with almost any kind of jacket, shirt or sweater. They can be found in a flat-front or pleated design and can often be worn as smart casual, even in the office.
Surely there are no men’s wardrobes anywhere on earth without sweaters inside? They are an absolute essential for the modern guy, such is their practicality and comfort. V-neck styles can be worn with a shirt and tie for an alternative formal look but can also be used as a layering piece with jeans and boots. Worn on its own or under a coat and scarf, or a lightweight summer one to be thrown over a t-shirt in the evenings – the sweater is a garment for all men and all occasions.
