Considering a Capsule Wardrobe?
4 Timeless Wardrobe Pieces Every Man Should Have
Fashion is something that many of us struggle with on a day-to-day basis. Not all of us have the keen eye for style that the likes of Tom Ford and Vivienne Westwood (RIP), which can lead to some difficult decisions – something true of both formal dinner events and simple afternoons out with friends.

Indeed, there is another element that can get in the way of a good dress style: body image. According to a recent study, one in five men actively dress to hide parts of their body about which they are concerned. But a good dress sense can trump many of these concerns altogether! – even with just a few staple items, you can take your stylishness to the next level.

A Tailored Suit
This is a non-negotiable entry to your wardrobe necessities. Suits are vital outfits, whether formal attire for special events and occasions or fashion statement for glitzy appearances and parties. Budget suits are undoubtedly a brilliant way to access this necessary get-up for a low price, but will never achieve the sheer style a proper, well-tailored suit can manage. While tailored suits naturally cost a little more to put together, the end results are clothes that flatter your body at its absolute best.

A Stylish Watch
A good tailored suit will stand on its own merits, but you should always give yourself ample room to accessorise. The simple addition of a timepiece can have a profound impact on the look and feel of an outfit, especially in terms of your own confidence – a variable that absolutely should not be ignored when thinking about dress.
Ideally you would have a range of watches to choose from depending on the occasion and your mood, but there are good all-round watches you can rely on to look good whatever the time of day. Omega watches are well-regarded for this reason, often utilising sleek displays against even sleeker bands to create a distinguished accessory for all occasions.

While a far cry from the value and style of the above suggestions, white t shirts are arguably the most versatile and important items you can keep in your wardrobe. White t shirts are the bedrock of many a fantastic style, whether the under-shirt for a smart-casual style or the canvas around which a louder button-up or Hawaiian shirt can really shine.

The leather jacket might be a controversial entry to this list – particularly when the decision to wear an ill-fitting leather jacket is solidly associated with more tragic sartorial decisions made during midlife crises! But a good leather jacket, chosen with purpose to suit your existing wardrobe, will last for decades and look good all the while.
Bomber jackets are a fantastic choice, particularly when paired with an unassuming white tee and an well-fitted pair of jeans. Or you could go for a more retro look and opt for a vintage leather jacket – which not only creates a timeless and often unique look, but also gains you extra kudos for living more sustainably.
