Posted On May 14, 2014

Are you bored of your wardrobe and in need of advice on how to spice it up without spending a fortune on a complete overhaul? Lucky for you, the experts from modern Gentleman's clothing and accessories brand, Punk Monsieur have contacted us with their top tips on what you should be adding to your closet to keep it fresh and stylish. Advising you with their top five must-have items to carry you through AW 2014 and beyond.

Keeping fashionable, stylish and looking good can be a time consuming hobby. With so much choice and variety in shops and online, it can be difficult to decide what is going to be a good investment for your wardrobe.

Undeniably, the components for making a fantastic and easy-to-navigate wardrobe for a gentleman are basics. Must-haves include; superbly fitting jeans that can be used for both casual and smart events; a selection of plain shirts and t-shirts that looks good with both jeans and a suit; a well-fitting suit in a neutral colour; a pair of smart brogues and some white trainers. But the problem is many men get stuck in a rut with what they are buying and repeatedly buy similar looking items. By never evolving their style they fail to get the look that they really crave.

The secret to keeping your style fresh is to accessorise your basic wardrobe with some statement pieces that can be easily added to any basic outfit. Here are our top five classic menswear items that will never go out of date and make a worthy investment:

Fashion guide picking the best gentleman's clothing.

The tweed jacket - The tweed jacket was once reserved for University lecturers but now it has proved itself to be a dynamic fashion piece. Great for both formal and casual occasions, this jacket could be worn to the office, out for dinner and even at the wine bar afterwards. It is also suitable for all seasons, as they look fantastic accessorised with a scarf, and eventually you can layer a longer coat over the top in colder weather. Check ASOS for some great deals on tweed, starting at just £70. (image source
