Let’s do something completely random now. Girls are always talking about the new “must-haves” and the things every girl needs to have in her bag and such, but guys rarely do that. Or perhaps never. Well, let’s try to do the same. Yes, misters, there are plenty of us, and each and everyone is different, but these are the things every man should own. Of course, there are certain events and occasions where it would be good to have some of these, and even though you will not always have them by your side, simply make sure you have them at home. Without further ado, what are the things you, as a guy, should definitely own?
A pocket square
Even though this is not an item that you will wear every day and perhaps you don’t see the use of it, it’s very important to be the owner of a white pocket square. You are definitely the owner of a good suit (if you’re not, put that on the list as soon as possible), so having a white pocket square to make your outfit complete is, first of all, very fashionable, and secondly, it’s really a must. This is very often an overlooked item, but it does make quite a big impact.
Apart from the white pocket square, if you own a good suit, then you need to have a complementary tie to go with it. However, it’s very important to pay attention to the type of the tie and the quality, as cheap ties will definitely show. Also, the width of your tie should complement your body type, so don’t opt for wide ties if you’re skinny and vice versa.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a sunglasses person or not, having a pair of high-quality ones that you will rock when it’s sunny is mandatory. Nowadays, there are a plethora of options to choose from and the only thing that you need is to settle for ones that are made of good materials and that will actually protect your eyes. Unless you wear sunglasses when it’s sunny, you have higher chances of squinting, which can create wrinkles around your eyes (and yes, we definitely want to stay away from those).
A good wallet
Carrying all your money and cards in the pockets of your jacket or jeans is extremely passé, and it doesn’t look good unless you’re a teenager. Real men need to have a good wallet, one that’s made of durable materials as you don’t want to buy a new one every couple of months. If you don’t own one, make sure to find a good men’s wallet in which you will carry all of your money, cards, and other important documents. It’s also important to choose the right wallet color, so get one that suits your personality (leather or faux leather one is probably the best choice).
Speaking of things made of leather, each man should be a proud owner of a good weekend bag. You never know when you will have a romantic getaway or a short business trip, so it’s important to pack your things with style once the opportunity arises. A weekend bag is one of the “it” accessories, which means that not only does it have to serve its purpose, but it also looks very nice and be fashionable.
This is probably an accessory that many guys own, but if you don’t, make sure to get one. A good watch can make your whole outfit and appearance, so you should find a fashionable one that looks good on you and that you like. You don’t only get to wear it on formal events such as weddings and parties (what do you mean you’re wearing your suit without a watch?), but there are a plethora of casual watches that you can choose from. The good thing is that you don’t have to break the bank in order to find a good watch, there’s a wide range of fashionable watches that are very affordable and look amazing.
The best thing for casual days is definitely a good pair of white sneakers. Thanks to the rise of athleisure, now it’s even possible to rock them with your suit, so practically, there are no rules here. However, if you opt for a pair of white sneakers, make sure to get a pair that is durable and fashionable.
It’s not difficult to be a fashionable and dapper guy, you just need to think about the details that make you such. Be a proud owner of these things that are listed above, and you will see how different you will feel and how everyone will look at you in a different, much more serious manner.
