20 Menswear Staples That Will Look Better as They Age

Good style doesn’t live and die with trends.


Last Updated December, 2017.

Don’t follow fashion. Don’t buy into colors or seasons or brands just because they’re brands. Style doesn’t work like that. Style, like marriage, is something you work at, you develop, you grow into. Buy clothes for the long haul. Boots, jeans, a favorite jacket — there’s no shelf life there. The best clothes don’t dip and die with trends. They fit well, last long, and look better a little beat up. These are items that fit the bill.
