01 The Cardigan
Though the cardigan has always been a somewhat discreet staple, this garment is, without a doubt, a classic in men's leisurewear. Knitted in a variety of silhouettes and with a front opening with a buttoned placket, a cardigan is an essential transitional garment that gives depth to any ensemble. The archetypical V-shaped neckline allows for the layer underneath to be visible, which is why cardigans are the simplest way to get started in the art of layering.
Contemporary fashion has rendered its restriction to casual settings obsolete. Still, it can be a great starting point for a relaxed outfit with a fresh feel. This version in neutral beige can be worn over a simple T-shirt and combined with tailored trousers for a modern look that blends the worlds of smart and casual.
02 The jeans
Jeans are possibly the most iconic garment of modern times. Distinguished by a very specific construction, these 5-pocket trousers made of heavy twill are an enduring and versatile garment that is as democratic as personal. Finding the right pair comes with a lot of trial and error, but once you find the silhouettes and fits that suit you best, their place in the wardrobe is more than justified.
This pair, designed to sit at mid-high waist and cut with roomy and full-length legs, come in a classic light wash. The combination of jeans and a white T-shirt is the perfect base for a spring outfit. Add your favourite top layer – such as an overshirt, as seen here, or a shirt or jumper – to make this classic outfit your own.
