Wardrobe Essentials For The Modern Man
Men are as varied as they have ever been; there is no single ideal into which all men fit. That’s why it is important for every man that he has a wardrobe which reflects his individuality. Too often, men allow themselves to get carried along with a certain trend, simply because everyone else is doing so. But that doesn’t have to be the case. When it comes time to update your wardrobe, there are some essentials which you need to ensure that you have. The key to these is to keep them personal, to make them yours. There is a fine line to tread here, but it is doable – and it’s well worth the effort. It’s possible to be both on trend and a completely unique individual modern man in your own right, all at the same time. Let’s have a look at those essentials, and how to truly own them.
Nowadays, you don’t see many men showing off their watch. For a lot of people, the smart-phone has essentially replaced the watch. Smart-phones are a very useful tool, and most modern men will have one in their pocket. However, there is something lacking in a man whose wrist is always bare. Treat yourself to a classy timepiece this year. This can be an effective, yet simple little way, of making yourself distinct from the crowd. Wearing a watch – particularly if it’s just a little showy – sets you apart and gives you a sense of the old-world charm.
All men wear suits, at the very least on a special occasion. But the quality of the suit says a great deal about a man. There is nothing worse than showing up to a wedding wearing an ill-fitting outfit found at the back of the wardrobe from last year. One of the kindest things you can do for yourself is to treat yourself to a brand new suit. The main trick, of course, to making it yours is to get it tailored like the ones from Michael Andrews Bespoke. A tailored suit shows that a man respects himself.
The shoes a man wears are of particular importance. Not many men pay that much attention to what is on their feet. However, if you are hoping to finish off your outfit and keep it personal, then you’ve got to consider your footwear. A good, solid pair of shoes can be a powerful statement that you don’t let anyone walk over you. Ideally, your wardrobe should have a few different pairs for separate occasions. Don’t believe the nonsense that only women enjoy owning lots of shoes.
Once again, it’s one of those aspects of the whole look which is often overlooked. But the coat is really important if you are keen to embrace your individuality. Consider it a fine attention to detail. Sure, it’s great if you rock up in a tailored suit with a fancy watch and polished shoes. But the image is slightly tarnished if you first have to take off an old, worn-out jacket. Treat yourself to a new coat, and complete the package.
