Closet classics for men

The way you dress is a reflection of who you are. A well-dressed man exudes an air of confidence and self-assurance. All you need to look your stylish best are some tried and tested classics. So make sure you have everything on this checklist.

Wallets and belts 

A great wallet is one that does two things and does it well. It acts as a functional storage unit for your money and cards, and looks good while doing so. The same goes for belts. They should fit will, look good and complement your outfit. Opt for classic black and brown ones; not only do they go with most ensembles, but are also easily available.


Comfortable yet stylish, the right shoes can make or break the overall look. While sneakers are ideal for a casual jeans and T-shirts look, formal leather shoes are a must for all those special occasions where you can perfectly pair them with your formal outfits. Don’t forget the casual slip-ons or moccasins, which are ideal for that laid-back Sunday brunch.


A good watch is one that looks charming and brings out your personality at the same time. Sporty, masculine, classy or luxurious; there’s a watch for every kind of person and occasion. Invest in a watch that fits well, draws compliments and keeps perfect time. It’s a fashion investment you will never regret.


Forget backpacks and business bags, satchels are now in vogue. They are uber stylish, sleek and perfect for carrying your essentials like your files or tablet. Add a cool twist to a regular outfit with a nifty pair of shoes and a classic satchel in matching shade.
A suit and tie

You never know when the occasion to don an impressive suit may occur. Follow the Boy Scouts motto of Being Ready and ensure that you have a bespoke suit that fits you fabulously. Pro Tip: Go for classic colours such as blue, navy, grey and black.

Formal trousers

A man’s wardrobe is incomplete without a pair of formal trousers. Impeccable, well-tailored and sophisticated, trousers are perfect for pulling off the formal or semi-formal look. Go for black and brown ones as they go well with the ubiquitous white shirt.
