Regardless of the time of year, weather or occasion, every guy needs strong basics in their closet. Simply put, we’re talking about the tees, long-sleeves, jeans, jackets and boots that will carry you through work and weekend. So what should you look for before you head to the checkout? Think quality, versatility and confidence, in a style that’s all your own.
In partnership with Mark’s, here are the five wardrobe staples every man should have at their disposal. Meet your all-star lineup.

Stock your drawers with quality t-shirts that can stand up to your daily wear and tear, so that the fiftieth wash looks as sharp as the first.
