The guy's essential clothing manual

When it comes to clothes, most guys seek out comfort before style and would rather spend their time watching the game instead of shopping for clothing. Simply adding a few new pieces that blend fashion and function can enhance any manís closet and provide options for any of lifeís adventures. Here are five wardrobe essentials that every man should have in his closet:

Flannel

Long gone are the days when flannels were just for lumberjacks. Todayís menís flannels blend utility and fashion for a comfortable, complementing look. Plus, flannels come in a variety of materials, from rugged wool perfect for outdoor projects on cool days, to thinner cotton options that work great for a business-casual work environment. Stocking your closet with a flannel or two adds masculine sophistication to a wardrobe and is perfect for men of all shapes and sizes.

Polo shirt

Perhaps no shirt is more versatile than the classic polo shirt. The short sleeve, collared shirt provides a timeless look that is appropriate for just about anything - from a casual Sunday at home to a meeting at the office to a day at the golf course. Widely available in every color and style of stripes, purchasing one or multiple polo shirts will give you a go-to option for any event.

Quality jeans

Jeans were made with men in mind - they look great, they are durable, and are appropriate to wear year round. Every man should have a good pair of jeans.

White dress shirt

A crisp white dress shirt is a versatile piece of clothing that is a closet-essential for men. Wear it tucked in with dress pants for a formal look, or untucked with jeans for a casual yet refined appearance. A quality dress shirt will serve its purpose years, but itís important to find the right size. If youíre unsure of your measurements, visit a tailor or ask someone at a department store to measure you. It only takes a few minutes and will help you get a shirt that complements your body shape perfectly.

Hat

A beloved hat is a great way to add a piece of your personality to any outfit. Some men prefer the classic baseball hat with their favorite teamís logo. The fedora has recently made a comeback and is a good choice if you want to add a hip element to your wardrobe - classic colors like white or brown match anything. Finally, as the weather cools, a knit hat in a rich red or forest green is perfect for staying warm when tackling outdoor projects or on a morning commute.
