All you need in your wardrobe – Your capsule wardrobe checklist

Your capsule wardrobe checklist 

We have worked with thousands of men, all of whom like to be able to dress with ease and minimal fuss. That’s why I have created you a checklist for your wardrobe essentials:

Basic white t-shirts – These will ideally have a bit of stretch and be a slim cut.

T-shirts are a layering essential and when they’re smart, can be worn a multitude of ways.

Smart jeans – No rips, no fading, just one flat colour with a slim, flattering cut.

Chinos – Every man needs a good pair of chinos in a high quality fabric and a slim cut.

Smart trousers – As men get stuck in the habit of wearing jeans or chinos, these are an ideal choice for a smart, evening out.

Choose between flannel or a pure wool for elegance.

Business Shirts –  Have 5-10 smart business shirts in your wardrobe ranging from plain white, blues and stripes.

Casual shirts – Choose something with a bit of fun, when you’re off duty, this is when you can let your personality shine a bit more. Unbutton your shirt collar and relax. Think print or texture.

Suits – Every man needs at least one fabulous suit in their wardrobe. The quality of the fabric, cut and construction must be high to make a good impression. 

Navy, petrol blues, charcoals always work well.

Shoes – You need to be ready for all occasions, so shoes are important. Don’t let your outfit down. 

•Smart lace ups in deep brown, black or burgundy

•Smart pull on or lace up boots

•Smart trainers

•Loafers

Knitwear – The best knitwear to own is merino wool sweaters. The fabric breathes with your body and works when you’re either hot or cold. As it’s notoriously lightweight it’s also very comfortable. Think roll necks, crew necks and v-necks

Accessories –  This is where your personality can really shine. 

•Pocket squares

•Woolen scarves

•Silk ties for work

•Wool ties or textured for smart/casual

•Belts

•Sunglasses

•Bags
