There's inherent value in classic pieces you can wear over and over again. Not only are they great investments, but they help build cohesion in your wardrobe, no matter what occasion you're dressing for. These are the six items no guy should be without.

  1. Navy sport coat
  2. White button-down
  3. Dark Denim
  4. V-Neck
  5. Brown shoes
  6. Brown belt

Navy sport coat

The classic pairing is with a dress shirt and tie, but a navy blazer can look just as sharp over a V-neck sweater or polo. Smart-casual at its finest.

White button-down

It goes with every tie you own, every suit you own, and every color in your wardrobe. A blank canvas for endless opportunity.



Dark denim

It looks great with dress shoes and a blazer. It also looks great with sneakers and a T-shirt. Come to think of it, there isn't much it doesn’t look great with.

There’s no cleaner or more masculine look than blue jeans with a white button-down, sleeves rolled.

V-neck sweater

It's a surefire garment for looking put-together. Depending on what lies ahead, wear it alone or over a button-down for a dressier occasion.



Brown shoes and belt

Brown shoes are more versatile than black ones because they pair with every color in your wardrobe (except black, ironically). And no pair is complete without a matching belt.
