Timeless Pieces All Gents Need In Their Wardrobe

Your wardrobe should not be a shrine to the latest fashions and trends. In fact, it should be stuffed full of timeless pieces that will make you look smart and well put together, no matter what combination you choose to wear them in. With this in mind, there are a few essential pieces that every gent's wardrobe should hold. Read on to find out what they are.


An overcoat is a very special thing. In fact, if you find just the right one, you will have a piece that will last you for years, and enhance a whole range of different looks. From something more casual such as a shirt and jeans to your best office attire.

Of course, a good mens overcoat will do more than just help you look the part. In fact, it will also keep you warm while you are outside and stop the nip of the wind getting to you as well. Although for it to fulfil all of these essential functions, you do need to choose the type and style carefully.

With that in mind, those of us that are broader in the chest may benefit from a single-breasted coat. While, for those of us with a slimmer build, a double-breasted overcoat is usually the way to go.  Although trying some on beforehand is always the best way to see for certain.

Dress Shoes

No man's wardrobe is complete without at least one pair of decent dress shoes. Unfortunately choosing the right pair can be something of a minefield. After all, there are so many styles, and materials to select from.

Fortunately, there are a few guidelines you can keep to if you want to get your dress shoe selection right. The first is that they absolutely have to match your formal suit.

Secondly, simple is always better so if it's a choice between patterns or brogues and plain, always go for the latter. Finally, leather or an excellent vegan leather substitute is the only material your dress shoes should be made from. Therefore if you have any at the back of the wardrobe that are plastic, you have my permission to throw them away! Right away!

Casual Slacks

Finally, when it comes to pieces that all guys should have, the casual slack is an absolute essential. In fact, a few pairs of well-fitting and good quality slacks can get you out of all sorts of trouble. Such as what to wear to a dress down day at work. Without looking like you have just rolled out of bed!

Slacks are also an excellent option for an informal date, or a get together with friends too. The added benefit of wearing them is that they will keep you far more comfortable than the pants of your fancy suit.

With that in mind, invest in a navy pair, and a cream or khaki pair as an absolute minimum and team with chunky knits and cardigans, or a tie and a V neck for the ultimate smart -casual look.
