What is in a man’s ultimate capsule wardrobe? If you had to compact your wardrobe and only have a handful of timeless items to mix and match with, what would you choose? According to Men’s Health, a man only needs 24 items in his wardrobe, including shoes and accessories. These staple items have to be versatile as the capsule wardrobe needs to create outfits for the office, for formal occasions and for casual affairs. Take a look at what our style consultants think should be included in the ultimate capsule wardrobe
A Coat – one that transitions from formal to casual.
This coat from Tiger of Sweden does exactly this. It is smart because of the colour, material and cut, but because of its’ sportier collar and hidden buttons it is still relaxed. You can wear this both on and off duty.
A pair of Handmade High Quality Shoes and the model you choose is so so important.
There are only 5 models that a man should ever look to own when it comes to shoes. They are: An Oxford, a Brogue, A Chelsea Boot, A Chukka Boot or a Monkstrap. Forget about all the other inventions – these are the staple shoes a man should own. If you are starting from scratch – start with an Oxford.
Chinos – and please note we are not talking about baggy khaki chinos.
The modern chino is slim and comes with a tapered leg. This trouser is the ultimate smart casual item to own.
A Highquality Designed Tshirt in black and white.
Sometimes we hear that No I don’t want to spend money on a Tshirt. A Tshirt is where you should spend your money cause it will make you look like Hank in Californication in no time.
Invest in a pair of raw denim with a tapered leg and a bit of stretch.
Jeans come from America and most often here are the best jeans you can find.
Smart Trainers – Perfect for causal Friday and the weekend.
Keep the colours neutral to ensure versatility!
Suit – For when nothing else will do.
A Crisp White Shirt – no fuss but a definite muss!
