8 Menswear Investment-worthy Pieces That Every Man Should Have In His Closet



Trends come and go but your wardrobe - and you – need more stable relationship, right? There are some timeless, investment-worthy pieces that every man should have in his closet. Pieces that make you look put-together, no matter what. Wardrobe-wise this is the most solid advice you’re going to receive all year. We’ve done the work to pull together a list of 8 trending menswear pieces that will get year-long wear and play nice with others. Happy shopping.

1. Field Jacket

Field jackets suit practically everyone, but they’re not completely overdone, so the sooner you enlist one, the better.

2. Grey Sweatshirt 

Elvis, Paul Newman, and even King Edward VIII were all partial to a sporty grey sweatshirt – and pictures of them wearing the item look just as fresh today as they did when they were taken. If that's not proof of how timeless they are, then we don't know what is.

3. Straight-Leg Trousers 

It’s been more than a decade since the introduction of skinny jeans, but they’re not every men's favourite. Always have straight-leg trousers in your wardrobe for timeless and cool styles. 2018 calls for a straight-leg fit anyway.


4. A Variety of Solid Colour T-shirts 

As suits become increasingly rare in offices, the chances are you'll wear T-shirts (whether alone or in your layering style) more than any other item you own. You never have enough t-shirts so just put some in the basket anyway. It's best to go for the highest quality one you can afford in a variety of colours – white, navy and black or grey are good starting points.

5. Anti-Minimal Trainers 

Ugly trainers become a huge trend in 2017. We’d advise you to rein it in a little for 2018. You can pick up a pair of statement kicks.

6. Herringbone Coat 

It’s been almost a decade since heritage menswear was done to death, so the time is finally ripe for it to have another outing in your wardrobe. Throw it over a suit now for smart but statement-making style, and come next winter layer over sportswear staples for a more contemporary high-low feel.

7. Smart Black Shoes 

Black shoes tend to get relegated to workwear, but the right pair can work just as well casually. Go for something that's fairly classic but with a slightly chunkier sole and a bit of personality up top and it'll be just as suited to your time off the clock as on.

8. Chunky Derbies 

Do not hesitate to be bold in 2018-19 when it comes to shoe game. Menswear’s going a step further by giving traditionally ‘safe’ Derby shoes a plus-size injection of personality.
