1. A pair of driving loafers

Anyone can use driving Loafers to go with shorts, jeans, casual pants, casual dress pants. There are many styles and colors and you just need to find the right pair of loafers that best fits your fashion style.

These type of shoes have ben in use for years and years and will never go out of fashion.

5. A black coat

Black never goes out of style and/or fashion. Fall and winter are very long seasons and a warm coat should be a fundamental investment. A black coat is very practical as black goes well with any color or outfit as well as with any type of hair and color. It is also slimming to the eye. A black coat is timeless and can be worn in any type of situations from formal to informal. It can be worn long, 3/4 or short, thicker or thinner depending on where you live.

For most guys, a belt is essential to complete an outfit. Men wear belts with jeans, chinos, and any other type of pants. A brown belt can give you both a formal or casual look. For example, if you are looking for a formal outfit to wear in the office, you can pair a brown belt with brown shoes or get an edge by pairing a brown belt with black shoes. Otherwise, for a more casual look, you can use a brown belt with any color of jeans, black or khaki pants, a polo, t-shirt or shirt.
