When it comes to high-end men’s fashion items, compared to what is available for women, the list isn’t at all that long. Men’s fashion has come on leaps and bounds over time, and as such, men are no longer as restricted as they possibly once were when it comes to being able to experiment with different fashion items on the market. And while many new trends may just be mere flash in the pan type pieces, there are still some timeless classics that are worth the investment and, in the long, pay to add to your wardrobe.
Watches are always classic and a great investment to add to any man’s wardrobe. Avoid buying models that trend and instead look to older, handcrafted timepieces that have stood the test of time, such as a Rolex or Omega. Shop the second-hand market and ensure that the watch you are buying is genuine and has all the original paperwork. These watches won’t be cheap, so look at Buddy Loans who can be an option to help you fund this purchase.
Treat your feet by investing in a pair of quality leather shoes. Shoes are the foundations of any man’s wardrobe, and as such, there is no reason why a pair of well-crafted leather dress shoes can’t last ten years or more. Make sure your shoes have a Goodyear or Blake Welt. The welt is what holds the leather to the upper. Leather shoes that have stitching allow the shoe to be resoled over time, and as the leather moulds to the shape of your feet, stitching allows them to be repaired when needed, unlike glue.
Many men will only visit a tailor for their wedding suit. But a well-tailored suit can be an investment in your wardrobe that will last you for many years. There is unspoken confidence that comes with slipping into a perfectly tailored suit that makes you feel good. This type of confidence can’t be bottled, but a well-fitting suit comes very close.
Choose a sleek classic look that won’t date or become out of fashion and avoid suits made from Polyester. It is worth paying a little more for a good suit and then making sure it fits you properly by taking it to a tailor for minor adjustments, so it hugs your body naturally and gives you the best fit possible.
Every man needs a coat that will carry him through his life. Be it a more casual blazer fit that can lend itself to many different styles and occasions or a full-length trench coat that is ideal for winter and will keep him looking sharply turned out for many winters to come.
Wool coats can be expensive but will last you for more than one season, meaning, if they are well cared for, they can be a staple in your wardrobe for a long time. A classic trench coat will keep you looking good and dry for the wet weather and can come as mid-length or full length. Choose a trench coat made from 100% cotton to really hold its shape and style over time no matter what you look.
