Fashion trends come and go, baggy jeans, man-buns, deep v-neck t-shirts and (shudder) crocs. It takes constant investment to keep up with the changing world of fashion, which, let’s face it, can sometimes be a little finicky. I don’t want to buy the latest bejewelled MC Hammer pants only to be told they’re no longer the “in” thing. So how do we get away with not replacing our wardrobe every season and still looking stylish? Here we reveal our list of men’s clothes that never go out of style.
Most of us have those clothes which we wear until they fall apart, then go out and buy again in the exact same style, these are the ones we DON’T cringe at when we look back at the family photo album ten years on! If you’ve got these items in your wardrobe, there’s not going to be many occasions you aren’t prepared for.
You can’t go wrong with a simple t-shirt, particularly in black or white; they’ll work in any environment, all year round too. One of the most popular items from season to season here at Mainline is the multi-pack Hugo Boss t-shirts, easy to throw on without a moment’s thought and great value for money by coming in packs of three.
When it comes to watches, both leather and metal bands have that rare ability to look as good decades later as they did on the day of purchase, but the key to buying a sophisticated watch which will be an invaluable accessory for years to come is looking for that simplistic look. No stylish man’s look is complete without a trusted time-piece.
Dark Slim Jeans
There probably isn’t a single man in the Western world who hasn’t owned a pair of denim jeans at some stage in their life, apart from maybe my Dad who I’m pretty sure has been in cargo shorts since his birth; c’mon Dad, get with the times.
Jeans have been a staple for men everywhere time and time again for over 50 years’ now. Though denim does come in many different cuts, washes and fits and sizes, all of which come in and out of fashion at regular intervals. Some of the most famous denim producers in the world include brands you can find at Mainline Menswear such as Levi’s, Diesel, and G-Star RAW, and one style you will always find in their collections is a dark slim fit. It’s simple, it’s stylish, it will never not look good.
A polo shirt has that sacred smart or casual aesthetic which is a key consideration for the modern day man. From looking sporty on the golf course, tennis court or polo field to looking smart in a work uniform, or even in a casual going outlook, the polo shirt can never look out of place and one can never have enough variations in colour or style. The beauty is, you are always spoilt for choice and almost every brand will release their own unique versions each year.
The most basic of shirt designs out there is consistently amongst the most popular and the fact it usually won’t include patterns or logos helps it maintain a look which never becomes tarnished with changing trends. The reason no man should be without one in their wardrobe is that there is never a time they look out of place, you will simply look smart and sophisticated. Wear it with jeans, trousers, shoes, boots and more for a clean cut look.
Try adding a blazer to your wardrobe if you don’t have one and you will soon wonder how you ever coped without. You never know when it might come in handy; from smartening up with a shirt and tie, to the slightly more laid-back look with an open collar shirt for a social occasion, even to wearing one with a t-shirt on a casual occasion- this is a go-to item for creating a stylish outfit every time.
