You want to look appropriate for life’s occasions, professional and social, but what do you REALLY need in your closet to ensure this happens?
The following is a basic list from topcoats to bathing suits and the accessories that most men of average income and a rich and diverse life style should own. You don’t have to have a full wardrobe in every catagory – focus on the level of professional formality that your job requires, and build out around the edges of that for social and casual. Consider all items you check off the list to be of good quality, in good condition, well tailored to you and of a modern cut and style. Overwhelmed? You know who to call!
