9 Essentials Every Man Should Have in his wardrobe | Nikhil Walimbe

Hello gentlemen, I hope everybody is doing well. I am back with a new blog. Today, I’ll be telling you 9 Items every man should have in his wardrobe. When dating, especially when you are looking to date a high-value woman, one of the things she will most certainly notice will be your style. A badly fitting pair of jeans or scuffed shoes are just as likely to be death to the first date as suggesting splitting the bill.

In my opinion, these items are the essentials when it comes to building a stylish wardrobe. Not only are they timeless and classic but they are perfect pieces to build your own personal style around.

So without wasting any time, let’s get started.

1. Dress Shirt

A man must have dress shirts in his closet, period. There are various dress shirts available like solid dress shirts and pattern dress shirts. I personally am a solid dress shirt guy. But, the option is yours. Have at least 2 white dress shirts in your closet.

2. Tee

Tees are an essential item in your wardrobe. Again, different types of tees are available in the market. Solid tees and patterned tees. In my opinion, nothing beats a solid neutral colour tee like a white tee.

3. Jeans

Tommy Hilfiger Straight leg jeans

Jeans, this is a no brainer. Jeans are one of the most versatile trousers a man can own. This is casual yet classic but getting the cut and size right is essential to pulling off a stylish look in jeans, without looking too casual. Colours like grey, blue and black look the best. Also, you can pair almost every colour tee with the above colours.

4. Leather Jacket

Leather jackets are hands down the best clothing item a man can add to his wardrobe. This item makes any man stand out in a crowd. Sure, these cost quite a lot of money but they last for a long time. Colours like Black and Tan are the go-to colours.

5. Boots

Boots are my favourite type of footwear. You can never go wrong with Chelsea Boots. These are my personal favourites and also, they are very versatile too. Make sure to keep them polished and clean for a stylish look.


6. Sneakers

Sneakers are the best casual go-to footwear. A white sneaker is very versatile and can be paired with quite a lot of outfits. If your date is going to involve walking or a fun activity a crisp white sneaker is going to look cool and effortless with a pair of jeans and a white T.shirt.


7. Sunglasses

Sunglasses are the best type of accessory a man can own. Hundreds of styles are available. Choose glasses that go best with your face shape. Personally, I think you can’t go wrong with a pair of classic Ray-Bans.

8. Watch

Gentlemen, wearing a watch always makes a statement and shows people that you are a responsible and punctual man. The watch that you wear doesn’t have to be an expensive one but as a rule, it’s an investment piece and can sometimes go up in value, so don’t be afraid to splurge on a designer piece. Buy a watch that is timeless and classic.

9. Tailored Suit

Last but should be first, A well-tailored suit is the best thing a man can ever own. Again, the fit of the suit has to be spot on. Please, don’t wear suits that are too baggy or too tight. You can also look into getting an off the peg suit tailored at your dry cleaners which can make a high difference to the fit, especially if you are a slightly shorter man.
