This One's For the Boys

I am always doing posts mainly directed toward the female readers, however, I thought I'd address what a classic guy should have in his wardrobe! I made several Polyvores that highlight what every guy should have at least one of:

Some essentials of a man's everyday, casual wardrobe include: Nantucket reds (and any other colored chino!), khakis, Brooks Brothers and Ralph Lauren Dress shirts and oxfords (also think Vineyard Vines, Southern Tide, etc.), Patagonia fleece pullover and vest, waxed cotton jacket (think Barbour, Burberry, LLBean, Brooks Brothers), Navy 2 button blazer, and Half zip pullovers .

Men's Essentials by summerwind41490 on

These are casual shoes. Think Bass weejuns and brown bucks, driving mocs, New Balance 993, Duck Boots, and Boat Shoes. For summer months think rainbow sandals, madras J. Crew/Vineyard Vines sandals.

Lastly is accessories: cummerbund and bow tie set, monogrammed cufflinks, croakies, LLBean backpack, cooler, flask, nice wallet (Ralph Lauren, Ermengildo Zegna, Burberry, etc.), pocket squares, needlepoint belts or critter belts,  koozies... and I don't know how I left out watches (my absolute favorite accessory for both men and women).

What do you think the necessities for a classic guy include? Of course I am not a guy so I am in no way an expert, so let me know! Don't forget to enter my Coast and Canter Giveaway!!! Have a fabulous day!

Great sets, lady! I agree, that every well-dressed guy should have these pieces in his wardrobe!

There is nothing like a man all decked out in preppy attire, no? ;)

Looks perfect to me!! Exactly how the well dressed man should dress casually!! And I agree with Gracie Beth, get rid of the cargo dislike them.

Where can you find monogrammed cufflinks like the ones you showed?
