Top 5 Picks for the Season

5 Staples in Men’s Fashion

Fashion is self-expression; it is predominantly subjective and defines how you would like the world to see you. Fashion is intensely personal, and it makes you who you are in a world where standing out has become a challenge. Some schools of thought argue that what you wear does not define you. This may be true to a certain extent, but what of the confidence you feel in one of your best pieces? What if the hours you spend looking for the “right” outfit for an occasion?

A straightforward statement would be that “fashion matters” and it is not hard to do. Fashion is as crucial to men’s style as it is to women's. This article discusses the top 5 key pieces that a southern man should have as a staple for his wardrobe.

  • A tailored suit with the right pocket square

  • Any man's wardrobe is incomplete without a couple of well-tailored suits. Of course, you can get a ready-to-wear suit from high-end brands; it does not necessarily have to be custom made for you. But, the emphasis here is on how these suits fit you.

    Invest in neutral colors such as gray, black and navy. These colors are basic, yet versatile, and perfect for most occasions. A tie is an essential part of a suit, but, yes, you can wear it without one. There are occasions when you just have to pair your suit with a tie. Get a tie that complements the suit rather than taking away from it. Last, but not least, a pocket square to tie the look together. 

    Still not sure where to start? Work with a personal stylist to figure out what pieces you need in your wardrobe.

  • A sport coat

  • Looking for more of a statement piece with the same sophistication of a suit? Try a patterned sport coat.

    A softly constructed sport coat is truly a must-have. Offering versatility & personalized style, it'a statement piece that works for business, happy hour, weekend events & more. Seasonal sport coats from Peter Millar bring the fashion, quality & comfort for warmer weather.

  • A sport shirt

  • A sports shirt is one of the most versatile pieces that you can have in your wardrobe. You can rock a sports shirt from Peter Millar anywhere, any day and on any daytime occasion. For a more casual, weekend look, try the new Hangin' Out Button Down by Johnnie-O and "Duck the Tuck!"

    Five Pocket Pants

    One of the top recommendations by fashion houses, a five pocket pant is as versatile as a pant gets.  It is a straight-legged pant with contemporary cuts. Offering a slim-fit and stretch for comfort, these pants are a great multi-seasonal addition.


    Comfortable and stylish, that’s what a shoe should be. Fortunately, the “cool driver” or tennis shoes from Scarpe di Bianco is all you need to complete your wardrobe. Pair it with jeans or your five pocket pants to enjoy a fun evening with friends or a formal event.
