5 Male Must-Haves


A wardrobe staple for both smart and casual affairs, a date with the missus,
or an after hours work meeting — the bomber never goes out of style. Versatile
yet on point, it pairs well with a myriad of separates and will go down well no
matter the occasion. Stick to a one- or two-colour palette to keep your look suave.


Often saved for a smarter event, the blazer is the perfect accompaniment to the
fast approaching festive season. Go for a style that is well-fitted on the shoulders and
with a slim-cut (you should still be able to do up your front buttons with ease). Wear
with a tee for a more casual look, though a classic shirt combo is always a winner.


A newer, fresher shape to the shirt family, the two-pocketed shirt not only
provides extra storing space but can also act as lightweight mandigan
(cardigan for men). Wear it unbuttoned with a tee underneath to keep things
casual, or buttoned up for a smarter look. Pro tip: Avoid layering over this as
the pockets plus additional layers will make your look too clunky.


Ah, the chino, a life-long friend that you can easily find in your wardrobe. But
with the festive season fast approaching — which means a few more parties
in the diary — it’s wise to get some new ones and ditch those that have last
weekend’s beer stains. Choose a quality pair that fits nicely but don’t hug
your rear; no man needs a booty.


It doesn’t need a genius to tell you that it’s worth having several options
available in the wardrobe. A fresh pair of sneakers will look so much better
than a scuffed-up old one, especially if you’re planning on wearing them to a
festive party. Just remember to stay away from the neon shades; these are
not running shoes.
