Men's style: The wardrobe staples worth investing in

There are some things no man's wardrobe can do without so make sure you're investing in the best, says Robert Johnston...

Burberry trench coat

Every man should own a trench coat and if you are going to invest in the best, then Burberry is the label to look for. This reversible Black Watch plaid wool twill design is an update on the classic and reverses to a navy cotton gabardine interior, giving you two pieces for the price of one.

Trench coat, £1,690, mrporter.com

Hermès tie

The perfect tie should be discreet yet still eye-catching, and no label fits this bill better than Hermès, especially with the hand-folded, silk, 7 H Allumettes design with its subtle pattern using the famous “H” logo.

Sunspel sweater

Cashmere may sound more luxurious but merino wool is just as comfortable and will keep its good looks for longer. British brand Sunspel’s round-neck navy number is a flattering cut so our advice is to buy four at a time – it’s a basic you will want to wear almost every day.

O'Keefe brogues

Good brogues will get better with wear but designer Maud O’Keeffe creates shoes that are exceptionally comfortable from the moment you put them on. The Goodyear welt of these classic Algy brogues means you can resole them again and again.

Brogues, £450, mrporter.com

Louis Vuitton suitcase

No one makes luggage quite like Louis Vuitton. The classic Pégase Légère lightweight cabin-sized case, in the famous Damier Ebène canvas, with its multiple compartments to fit all the tools of your trade, will make any business trip a pleasure.

Suitcase, £2,610, uk.louisvuitton.com

Zimmerli boxer shorts

Swiss brand Zimmerli boasts that its underwear is the finest in the world. These silk boxer shorts in a gold floral print are the last word in luxury, cut loose for comfort.

Boxer shorts, £85, harrods.com

Dunhill wallet

This zip-up leather Cadogan wallet by Dunhill will be equally at home in a briefcase as in your jeans’ back pocket – and it’s handy for change, too. Go for an eye-catching colour.

Wallet, £265, dunhill.com

Turnbull & Asser dressing gown

There is nothing better than slipping out of your crisp white sheets into a crisp white cotton dressing gown and this piped herringbone number by Turnbull & Asser fits the bill perfectly.

Dressing gown, £295, turnbullandasser.co.uk
