Three Items Every Man Needs To Own.

This is a featured post in conjunction with High and Mighty XL clothing.

The Short Sleeved Navy Shirt

Casual, stylish and perfectly Italian.

The Lace Up Desert Boot

Wear them under tailored pants or over the top of tucked in skinny jeans.

The Very Sensible Over Coat

Worn casually or formally, a sensible and stylish coat is a male wardrobe must have.

What staples do you think every man should own?

    I think they need a great pair of colorful sneakers.  It’s a cool way to express a sense of style since most of their choices are so constrained.  You can wear them casually or to slightly nicer events that don’t require real dress shoes.

       In a way I agree but my man is very similar to me in that we both look extremely casual in sneakers. We have friends that look amazing in sneakers but it’s just not something that works for us.

    A perfect v neck t shirt. Great with jeans or shorts in summer and layered in winter with the above mentioned coat and a scarf. Delish!

    Nice, crisp tees in white, grey, charcol, black, navy and camel.
    Simple white cotton shirt (make it good cotton)
    Nice pair of loafers or boat shoes
    slim, raw denim jeans. keep the branding to a minimum
    a few jumpers. merino wool for winter, cotton for spring summer.

       Oh come on! You could totally do the short sleeved shirt.

      Majorly agree with the non-branded jeans and merino wool/cotton. You classy lad.
