    After 26 years of dressing and looking like a scrub, I'm trying to make an effort to make myself more presentable. However, I really don't know the first thing about men's style... so what do you guys think should be in every guy's wardrobe? I guess i'm starting this thread to get some help on what kind of items I should have... (I am going for more of a conservative look, not really into the whole skinny jeans, big graphic print tee shirts thing) I am 26, 5'9 and a average build 167 lbs.



    i'll start off with:

    a nice pair of straight legged dark jeans

    vneck sweater

    fitted casual button down shirt

    I agree with most of above. Also get a polo shirt or some button ups that you can dress up or wear casually.

    I don't like fitted jeans - but some nice jeans that aren't ripped or faded are always good to have in your closet.

    Also, get some shoes other than sneakers and flipflops. They have good options at most dept stores.

    semi casual shoes (not sneakers), jeans that fit well, and well fitting polos.

    Not owning jeans is a good indicator that you haven't hit puberty yet.

    Please define "boots". I've got 2 pair of steel toe, I'd like a pair of some Red Wing 8-inch or pull-on work boots. You couldn't catch me dead in cowboy boots.
