Fall and winter must-haves for all guys

There are six basic items of clothing that no wardrobe should ever be without for fall and winter, no matter what is strutted on the catwalks of the world or what the style gurus say. The basic male style guide combines common sense, style, fashion and practicality. The six basics every wardrobe needs are pinstriped pants, striped shirts, a cardigan, jeans, a blazer and flat-front twill pants. Once you understand that these six items are, according to the male style guard, the foundation of your wardrobe, you are ready to build on from that.

Top half

When you get the style basics in your wardrobe for this fall and winter, you are setting your wardrobe up not only for now, but for many seasons to come, so it is sound economics too. So let’s split the male style guide essentials in two and take care of the top half first. You need a cardigan; forget about grandfather’s droopy cardigans.

These are modern and stylish with a sleek, modern cut suitable for going out and for office wear, depending how you dress it up or down. Go for luxury in cashmere or country with elbow patches, whatever you prefer. You need pinstriped pants; as these are perfect classics that spice up your look for formal occasions, yet look just as good when you go casual.

Striped shirts, you must have a good few of these, so pair up jeans with bold and broad striped shirts that look just as good with a suit. Once you start experimenting you will be hooked on striped shirts. The last item is the blazer; you simply cannot have your wardrobe without at least one blazer in a neutral color to give you the best combinations.

Bottom bits

To get the most out of your basic male style guide you need flat-front twill pants and jeans, as these are the two types of pants that give you huge scope. Flat-front twill pants go with just about anything and everything. Match it with a turtleneck or a favorite T-shirt for a night on the town or team it up for casual office wear with a button-down shirt.

This brings us to the last, but for many the most important item, jeans. Jeans are here to stay, no matter how they change the styles and fit, few people today can survive without a few pairs of trusty jeans. Your personal tastes and preferences will guide you whether you prefer designer jeans or the everyday kind. See that your wardrobe has jeans for high days and casual days it is simply a must.
