If you like to be able to make quick outfit decisions and still look awesome, then you’re in the right place. The busy man needs an uncomplicated wardrobe that works for any purpose or occasion. From off-duty days with the family, to weekend city breaks; invest in our 10 key menswear essentials for a wardrobe that is ready for anything.
Buttoned up for smart occasions or left open over a t-shirt for more casual affairs, the chambray or denim shirt is a go-to top for any gent. The soft collar of the chambray looks great layered under a knit sweater too.
A round neck chunky knit jumper is not only an essential winter warmer but it is great for finishing off a look. Wear it alone, or over a casual t-shirt or shirt. Feeling brave? Wear over a bold print shirt to add a splash of colour to your outfit.
Brogue shoes or boots sit on the fence between smart and casual, and work with almost any outfit. Handcrafted in the UK, our new season brogue boots have a shearling-lining for warmth and Goodyear welting between the shoe and the sole for durability. Investment shoes that can be worn with smart chinos or dress down denim.
Incorporate some subtle country heritage into your wardrobe with a tweed blazer. It’s a truly versatile item of clothing, wear dressed up for a tailored look with a shirt and tie, or more casually over a knitted jumper for warmth. Our Donald tweed blazer features little details such as mismatched buttons for extra British quirk.
With their origins in 19th century military uniform, chinos have come on a long journey to become an everyday menswear staple. There’s not much they don’t look great with, so find your fit, invest in every colour, and trouser dilemmas will be a thing of the past.
Town mouse or country mouse, the timeless, versatile and hard wearing wax jacket will keep you warm without scrimping on style. We’ve thrown in a bit of quilting to our Lockhart jacket, and the cotton wax is supplied by our friends at Halley Stevensons in Scotland, makers of weather-proof fabrics since 1864.
When you want to go casual, without losing the collar, reach for a rugby shirt. Here at Joules we’re well loved for our lived-in-look rugby shirt range. They work with chinos or jeans, are comfortable enough to kick back in, but smart enough for Sunday dinner in the pub.
Another versatile piece of footwear, the desert boot, often known as the chukka boot, looks great with a casual suit or off-duty jeans. There’s a reason they’re hardy, they were originally designed for the military to be worn in the desert.
There’s nothing classic about being cold. Brighten an outfit and protect your neck with a check or tartan wool scarf.
Don’t forget your denim. Finding your perfect fit jeans can be a bit of a journey, but once you’ve found them they become a practical and comfortable friend. Our popular Kenson jeans in dark indigo look great turned up with a pair of trainers and a t-shirt, and equally as good with a shirt and evening shoes.
