Peter of Joyful Source outlines the utmost fashion essentials for businessmen.

You’re a super-busy businessman who wants to look his best but doesn’t have enough time to master his outfits? Look no further because we’re here to help you out!

Here are five fashion items every businessman has to own, so check them out and take your style to a whole new level.

A Perfectly Tailored Suit

Needless to say, a quality suit should be a staple in any businessman’s wardrobe. This is the most frequently worn piece in the business world, after all.

Although there are nice suits in department stores all over the world, the truth is these usually don’t fit perfectly. The jacket sleeves and pant legs are either too short or too long, and the jacket often fits poorly on the shoulders.

In order to avoid countless alteration trips to your tailor, why wouldn’t you get a custom-made tailored suit instead?

Your tailor will make it according to your body measurements, which means that your suit will fit flawlessly and be completely unique. Does it get better than that? We don’t think so!

A Trendy-Yet-Practical Wallet

Yes, we know a traditional leather wallet is a timeless piece that’ll never go out of style, but you know what? Apart from cash and credit cards, a lot of guys tend to stuff other things in their wallets.

Empty candy wrappers, expired gift cards, a handful of receipts… All of these will make any wallet look super bulky and uncomfortable to wear in the pocket.

Well, cool money clips for men are a fantastic alternative to conventional wallets. First of all, these are quite small yet very practical. Basically, this is a half-an-inch thick metal clip made from stainless steel that can hold a dozen folded bills.

Of course, you can include a few credit cards, too. It’ll apply enough pressure on your bills and keep them safe inside your clip. Just give it a try — you won’t regret it!

A Pair of Top-Quality Leather Shoes

Top-quality leather shoes are another fashion essential every businessman should own. While this can be extremely pricey, quality dress shoes are always worth the investment.

Once you buy them, you’ll be able to wear them for years – even decades. Of course, proper care is vital. That’s the only way for your leather shoes to stay as good as new.

Apart from cleaning them regularly, you should also condition your shoes to maintain a fresh look. A nice wax polish will be more than enough to protect the leather and provide a high-shine finish.

As for the color, you should go for black or brown leather shoes. These are the most wearable and versatile options out there!

An Elegant Wristwatch

If you’re one of those guys who love to look classy and stylish no matter what, we highly recommend getting an elegant wristwatch.

Similar to quality leather goods, these are usually bought at astronomical prices – especially if you go for some of the most renowned brands such as Rolex or Breitling.

However, you don’t have to spend a fortune on a luxurious piece. There are many amazing brands that offer quality yet affordable wristwatches that don’t cost more than $200.00.

All you have to do is to pick a preferred style and the type of bracelet. Both leather and metal bracelet are a great choice, so you won’t make a mistake whichever you opt for!

A Tie Collection You Actually Like

Every businessman knows that a good tie is an inevitable part of any formal clothing combo. It doesn’t really matter if you wear a tie every day or reserve them for special occasions– you should have a collection of ties you actually like.

This will help you come up with formal outfits in the blink of an eye, which is crucial when you’re in a rush. Apart from the monochromatic ties in black, navy, and brown, be sure to get ties that feature some intricate patterns as well.

Colorful, vibrant ties that can be worn in semi-formal and casual occasions are a must, too. Get pieces that work perfectly with your style and you’ll nail this fashion task like a true pro!

In Conclusion

As you can tell, there are many essential fashion items every businessman should own. Of course, the five aforementioned ones are the most important out there, so make sure to lay your hands on as many of them as possible. Once that’s done, you’ll see an instant style boost!
