The 6 Wardrobe Staples You Need
These new season menswear essentials will do all the work for you
Fashion’s obsessions with sportswear sees no sign of waning. Why not try the myriad hoodies that have been re-worked and elevated in premium fabrics? Just Another Fisherman hoodie $129. Barkers shirt $100. Crane Brothers pants $1795 (part of a suit, worn throughout).
A CAMEL BLAZER
Some things never go out of style, and in a world where time is money, a versatile camel jacket will see you through the working day and weekend. Working Style blazer $2190. Emporio Armani watch, $379, from Stewart Dawsons.
A SILK POCKET SQUARE
Add some colour and take suit dressing to the next level with a subtle silk pochette in your pocket. Monti Castello silk pocket square, $49, from Fifth Avenue Menswear. Crane Brothers suit $1795. Barkers shirt $100.
For those scoffing at this suggestion, welcome to 2016: men can carry things around in a tote bag. This one comes in a versatile bone colour, made from waterproof nylon with sturdy handles. Swims tote, $129, from Fifth Avenue Menswear. Gubb & Mackie shirt $100. Bracelet, model's own.
A LIGHTWEIGHT SWEATER
The best layering piece to invest in is a crewneck sweater in a lightweight yarn, breathable, and not too bulky. Throw in a fun print because, why not? PS by Paul Smith merino sweater, $365, from Fifth Avenue Menswear.
A SHORT SLEEVE SHIRT
The return of the boxy short-sleeved shirt is an all-season wonder. Easy to throw on for a casual weekend out but much more polished than a T-shirt, it’s another failsafe way to look put together without looking like you tried too hard. Gubb & Mackie shirt $85.
