Tips for a Quality Men’s Wardrobe


The best versatile wardrobe staples will be multifunctional, high-quality, and durable. Finding great men’s clothing articles can be a fun adventure as you look for rugged jackets, trousers for the office, and shirts. One great way to approach shopping for men’s clothing is to look for things like shirts or pants that can be worn at the gym, in the office, or outdoors.

Being a dad, having several versatile wardrobe options is crucial so that you can focus on the main job: fatherhood.

Creating a Classically Simple Closet

Many in the fashion industry describe the term “capsule closet” but in simple terms, it’s a closet with a small number of items that you can maximize to create a multitude of outfits.

Compare it to how you might pack when traveling — the right shirt, slacks, and shoes can result in only a carry-on rather than a large checked bag or suitcase. Sometimes too many choices can be overwhelming and lead to a bad combination or simply slow down your mornings.

Being a father and family man, there’s no time to waste putting together an outfit when the kids need breakfast and everyone has to get to school.

Clothes for Every Activity

Turtlenecks, button-ups, and cardigans are all great shirt options for work, at home, or a night on the town with your partner.

Oftentimes, it’s not even the style of the shirt as much as it is the color choice or pattern that allows you to wear it in any given setting. Classic colors like navy blue, black, white, cream, or evergreen are great colors that you can dress up or down.

Flannel patterns or pinstripes are also easily modified with either a blazer or jeans. 

Downsizing the Stuffed Closet

The ideal capsule closet has anywhere from 12-36 items of clothing that are high-quality and multipurpose.

These few items will be a collection of your best, most versatile pieces. If downsizing to a smaller wardrobe sounds scary, just start with those worn-out and faded jeans, holey shirts, and socks that have no match.

Step by step you’ll get to having a robust, go-to section in your closet that you can count on for any event or activity.

Effortless Shoes for You

Finding your perfect pair of men’s shoes may seem like a no-brainer, just get a pair of sneakers or boots, and you’re good to go, right?

But actually, review the many unique offerings for shoes that can be a staple for a man to wear on his most classy day or for a night out watching the game with friends. 

Yes, you can be confident that your outdoor shoes can simultaneously look good while you’re out to dinner.

With just six pairs of shoes in the closet, you’ll be confident. Shoes are a great way to make a statement, just keep them shined and replace them when they’ve lost their vibrancy.
