Men's clothing essentials - Everything a stylish man needs

Fortunately, men started to care for their appearance just as much as women do. Maybe not just as much to invest greatly in various accessories, but rather in those essentials that might give them a polished, put-together look. In fact, all men regardless of their age need some essential items to throw on them and look amazing. Whether is an amazing coat, a classy shirt or even a watch, there are some must-have pieces that a man shouldn’t miss from their wardrobe.


What does “essential” mean?

The meaning itself is a “loose” one as it can define multiple things. Regardless, an “essential” clothing article does tend to meet some requirements.

  • An article that acts as the foundation of various outfits or styles which you choose to approach.
  • An essential clothing article should offer any outfit coherence, regardless of the other articles used.
  • It’s commutable with almost any other item in your wardrobe.
  • Works in almost all circumstances in which you may find yourself (office environments, casual meetings, weddings and cocktail parties).

If a clothing item meets all the above, we can say that it is truly an essential one. The main goal when creating a men’s wardrobe is to invest mainly in essential items as these are more versatile and will always create a polished look. Many may argue that an outfit needs personality and originality, but this is where stylish accessories come in discussion.

Oxford button-down shirts are an amazing place to start

There aren’t many things more versatile than an oxford button-down shirt. In fact, when wearing such items, nothing can go wrong with an outfit, especially if the fabrics are high-quality ones. With a smart appearance and a soft construction, these shirts are perfect for all occasions, as they have all they need to boost the visual appeal: the collar creates a put-together appearance, while the soft construction offers those a casual, relaxed look. The effect created is a stunning and very polished one. But let’s talk fabrics. What fabrics are the best for such items? Well, Merino wool clothing for men seems to be the latest trend in the fashion industry, as this fabric has some amazing properties that men generally love. Merino wool has amazing properties such as breathability, a look for which many men are looking for in their clothing. Also, this fabric is wrinkle-resistant, odour resistant and has the ability to keep the wearer cool during the hot months and warm during the cold ones. For men that usually avoid purchasing too many clothing items, and usually go for minimalistic wardrobes, this fabric seems to meet all their requirements.

Pea coats and overcoats can really make a statement

Depending on the climate where you live, a pea coat or an overcoat may be truly necessary. Luckily, these clothing items can really make a statement and help you look effortlessly stylish. However, men tend to repeat the same mistakes over and over again when selecting their overcoats. The fashion experts at Hardvark for Men's Merino Clothing claim that they usually see men who choose items that are too boxy for their figure, too long or with a too complicated design. An overcoat that is too boxy will make the person wearing it look thinner if they are already thin, and wider if they already have a wide frame. Items that are too long will make a short individual look even shorter; tall individuals will look like they are wearing a blanket. For choosing a stylish overcoat, make sure to check for the following.

  • An item that is appropriate for the climate where you live.
  • Take into account if you wear suits frequently, as this may ask for more room.
  • If you go for pea coats, double-breasted is always better, while if you opt for an overcoat, a single-breasted one will be a more suitable option.
  • If you choose a budget-friendly item, make sure that it is properly built so the price isn’t obvious. Luckily, there are some incredibly manufactured products that are very likely to fit in everybody’s budgets.

Plain T-shirts and Chino pants

For more casual occasions, you want to make room in your wardrobe for several pairs of chino pants and some plain T-shirts. More suitable for a casual walk in the park, shopping or other daily activities, these will certainly give you a polished and relaxed look, if chosen appropriately. A set of deep navy T-shirts and some pairs of chino pants in several different colours will certainly compliment every day-to-day outfit. While these aren’t difficult to find, make sure to pick some that fit your figure. None of those should be too loose or too tight.

Accessories matter a lot

A classy watch, some cuffs for special occasions, a silk tie, these all should be part of any men’s essential accessory collection. A watch that you choose should be appropriate for various occasions. Choose one that falls between classy and casual. A Citizen Eco Drive Chronograph makes an amazing option if you like statement pieces, that fall more on the casual side with a kick of classiness. Some silver cuffs go in all classy circumstances, as they add a polished look and create a visually appealing look. A classy silk tie is in many cases anything a stylish man needs, so investing in one is a long-term investment for sure. Don’t forget about sunglasses as these make a real difference in those hot summer days. Or sunny winter days.

Make sure that all the pieces that you choose for your wardrobe are versatile. Also, the quality of the fabrics matters enormously. High-quality fabrics will increase the looks of a clothing article, while also increasing the comfort of the wearer. Avoid at all costs synthetic fabrics, as they will make you sweat profusely and have a generally cheap appearance. Also, accessories matter so make sure that those are chosen accordingly to the rest of your wardrobe, as those should complement your outfits and bring those together.
