Now, before your masculinity starts twitching, this is a simple list of classic staple pieces every guy should own…
Button Down White Shirt
A Nice Watch
A watch isn't just a watch, okay? It's a timepiece. A staple. Every man should have a statement watch - striking enough to draw some attention but subtle enough to go with both your office wear and weekend outfits. Try a silver watch with a black watch face, this is the easiest kind of watch to match to any wardrobe. With so many variations available, you'll be able to find one that fits your budget - I wonder how big the budget for this piece on DJ Tira.
Straight Leg Pants
As with anything, pant fits come and go out of trend all the time. Right now we are finally over the super-skinny fit domination of the past few years so it's time to branch out a little bit. No man can go wrong in a straight-fit pant, be it jeans or a chino. This is a far more flattering and versatile option that can elevate your everyday casual style from slouchy to cool. Try them in dark tones for a more flattering style like this look on Prince Kaybee.
Not just a thing to throw on in the rain, a trench is a must for every man. This staple elongates the body and broadens shoulders, creating a strong yet suave look on any guy. Each man's closet should have one black and one beige trench coat then you're sorted. Bonus points if there's a pop of colour, like this one on Riky Rick's single cover.
Double Breasted Suit
When it comes to suits, it's too expensive to suggest you keep buying new ones. So, that's where the double breasted suit jacket and/or waistcoat are your best friend. One (or two) of these suits and you'll never be underdressed again. The trick is that it is easier to have your suit jacket adjusted as you gain and lose weight with a double button line. The sleek simplicity of this silhouette means it can serve almost every suit-based dress code, from wedding guest to workplace. Try going all out and getting yourself a statement suit - pin stripes always add that little something extra like this one on Maps Maponyane.
