In this month's Men's Journal, writer and menswear jack-of-all-trades Sean Hotchkiss, pens a piece on a man's essential wardrobe. "When it comes to your wardrobe, less can truly be more," he writes, "if you're smart about how you put it all together." Seeking the advice of the industry's best minds, he checks in with Nick Wooster and Club Moncaco's Aaaron Levine for their thoughts as well. And it's not all high-minded and high-end, either—look for appearances from Uniqlo and Gap in the mix of more top shelf labels.
“Get a versatile pair of dark denim, a lighter-colored chino (works at the office or on the golf course), and a five-pocket cotton pant in a neutral, military tone.”
Pick up an outfit like this:
an insulated puffer vest ("The ultimate affordable layering piece," says Wooster) and a retro-inspired baseball sweatshirt that's cut so well, it even fits under a sport jacket.
