10 Pieces Every Stylish Man Should Own

10 Pieces Every Stylish Man Should Own


From off-duty denim to smart-casual separates, there are certain key pieces no distinguished wardrobe should be without. Here’s our definitive list of the must-haves you really should make space for…

1. Single Breasted Blazer

When it comes to single-breasted blazers, there’s often an abundance of styles to choose from. Best keep it classic and stick to versatile hues that’ll work over tees, knitwear, shirts and sweatshirts.

2. Grey Sweatshirt

While logos and prints can be fun, there’s nothing more stylish than a sleek, unfussy grey sweatshirt. Naturally they’re an off-duty essential, but more demure types may enjoy styling theirs with a blazer and chinos for a bit of balance.

3. Relaxed Overshirt

Even the most polished men will find a relaxed overshirt beneficial. Smarter than a denim jacket, more classic than leather, stick to dark colours for a grown-up feel and pair it with everything from straight-leg jeans and trainers to chinos and chunky winter boots.

4. Crewneck Cashmere Sweater

A simple cashmere jumper is a no-brainer. The high street has endless options to choose from these days – we always recommend M&S as a one-stop shop for affordable styles.

5. Straight Leg Jeans

Whether you’re a mid-wash, grey or dark-wash denim fan, when it comes to shape and fit, a timeless straight-leg jean always comes out on top.

6. Basic Tees

Worn alone with chinos or layered under knitwear – a crisp white basic tee is a wardrobe essential. How to find the perfect tee? Look for organic cotton or natural fabrics where possible and avoid anything oversized or too tight on the sleeve.

7. Neutral Overcoat

Winter isn’t complete without stylish and practical outerwear, and the sophisticated overcoat remains a must-have. Layer over smart suiting for the office or slip over sweats with sneakers for the weekend.

8. Navy Suit

Easy to dress up or down and perfect for all seasons and occasions, a slim navy two-piece suit will forever be a winning option. Always buy the best suit you can afford, whether that’s Savile Row or Suit Supply, and choose a style that will work hard for you.

9. Clean White Sneaker

Gone are the days when white trainers were just for sports. They’re now an essential for all ages. The less fussy, the better – keep them simple and scuff-free and you can’t go wrong.

10. Black Chelsea Boot

There’s a reason we keep coming back to the Chelsea boot year in, year out. The shape is just so versatile. Whether you choose something chunky or slim, suede or leather, it’s worth investing in this everyday hero.
