The 5 things that shouldn’t miss in every man’s closet.

Okay so today we’re gonna talk about the five things that every decent man should have amoungst his stuff, and i know some of you might already have some or all of these (like myself) so i though we help out a few that might, well, need such advice.

So lets get straight into it.

1). A Pair of White Shoes.

Come on guys, long gone are the days when one would say, “I don’t own a pair of white shoes because its a hard color to maintain.” By now you should know that white shoes need some extra care right after stepping into them (you are not clean till you can maintain the color white, period). I advise simple, non-sophisticated shoes like Common Projects, Vans, and even Adidas Superstars. They are quite an easy get away for people that want their outfits simple and neatly done. They also help one to come up with an outfit because they easily match almost any color due to their neutral characteristic. So grab yourself a pair of white shoes. ITS AN ORDER. lol.

2). High Quality ‘Designer’ Wallet. 

A good, quality wallet gives you confidence. Now i know you might be wondering why I’m emphasizing the designer part: well it doesn’t have to be a designer branded wallet, but for a person like me i like accessories that are easily defined by their brand; talk of Cartier, Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Fendi … It just doesn’t feel right to have this really good outfit on, with a low quality wallet in your pocket. It doesn’t have to be designer, but get a wallet of HIGH quality that will last long. Some months back i spent my last cash (i wont mention how much) to buy myself a Prada Wallet and up to now, I always look at it and, it just feels so dope (the texture + name).

3). Turtle Neck


You can have any other jersey in your closet, but grab a turtle neck too. Turtle necks are really nice jerseys to wear when it comes to winter days especially when you want to keep warm and look stylish at the same time. They have a characteristic attached to them of automatically making you a ‘cool, clean and nicely dressed’ person even without adding too much effort to your outfit. So i advise you get at least one turtle neck jersey; color based on the type of clothes you have (I advise burgundy, light grey or black).

4). Wrist watch(es)


Most people have the mindset of saying a wrist watch is for time; well yes it is but there is another reason you should have a wrist watch in your closet – to complete your outfit. I have walked out of my room on different occasions without my wrist watch and trust me i felt just how incomplete my outfit was, forcing me to rush back in and get it. However, I advise each man to have AT LEAST TWO (2) high quality, branded watches. Come on guys, save some cash and get two watches because being dapper requires spending actually. You can buy them according to the type of dress codes you like. Have one for killer occasions and another for daily use. You might want to pick a neutral color like black – and also brown (brown is even more classy). 

5). Deodorant 


“Buy Deodorant, Buy Deodorant, Buy DEO-DO-RANT.” You may not have enough cash for a perfume, but deodorant must NEVER miss out in your closet. In fact Deodorant and Roll On are two of the things that must never miss in every man’s closet. Go ahead, walk naked outside if you want to, but smell good while you piss people off with your indecency. But on a serious note, it is vital to wear deodorant after each shower to not only avoid disturbing the public, but also for your personal hygiene.
