Staples I Can't Live Without

Staples I Can't Live Without

Clothes with a high-end design, great construction with everyday wearability and functionality are clothes I find myself comfortable in. For those of you who know me it’s mainly all in black.

The staples I can’t live without are a great fitting medium weight black T, drop crotch trouser and quality sneaker.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Bassike. Their simplicity and consistency of design made shopping for guys my age (mid 40’s) a breeze. The Helix Pant (which has recently been discontinued sadly) and The Original T-shirt with tail, have been two items I frequently re-purchase for my wardrobe.

Recently, my partner Michelle introduced me to Wardrobe NYC which is founded by Australian designer Josh Goot and stylist Christine Centenera.

Instead of selling collections piece by piece, it bundles them into multiple-piece monochrome wardrobes of high-quality staples. There are no exterior logos, patterns, or prints of any kind.

As the brand’s website says, Wardrobe NYC “heralds a conscious and liberated model for the future of luxury. We feel that society in general idolizes conspicuous consumption. That feels out of date. The emerging values of our generation are more about conscious or less consumption, of better things.”
