Classic looks for
your classic guy

A classic guy needs classic clothes! We've got you covered with some of the most stylish and versatile items you'll need to stock his wardrobe.

These simple wardrobe choices are perfect for any classic guy. They're long lasting, versatile and just right for nearly any occasion.

Levi's jeans

Jeans

No guy's wardrobe is complete without at least one good pair of jeans, although we recommend having at least a few pairs on hand. The 505 Regular Fit Jeans by Levi's (Levi's, $58) have a classic cut that conforms well to any style. They're preshrunk and heavyweight so you know they'll last a long time, and they're available in a variety of dyes and washes.

Button-up shirt

Button-up shirt

Every classic guy should have at least one button-up shirt for those occasions that aren't exactly dressy but call for a little more than a T-shirt. We love the RVCA That'll Do Woven Shirt from PacSun (PacSun, $48). It's lightweight, so it's perfect for warmer weather, and it's available in three colors.

Old Navy Broken-in cargo shorts

Cargo shorts

When the weather heats up, it's time to ditch the jeans and go with something that provides a little more breathing room. The Broken-In Cargo Shorts from Old Navy (Old Navy, $25) are stylish and just right for summer. The soft fabric and tagless waistline make them super comfy, and most men love the extra storage in the leg pockets.

Nautica polo shirt

Polo shirt

Polo shirts are the very definition of classic. They're as comfortable as his favorite T-shirt but nice enough for a day on the golf course or a night out on the town. Nautica's Tech Pique Stripe Polo Shirt (Macy's, $55) is a great choice because it's made with moisture-wicking technology that's designed to keep him dry on even the hottest of days.

Dockers flat-front pants

Khaki pants

Sometimes, a man needs to look good. These Flat-Front Pants from Dockers (Kohl's, $50) make it easy. You'll love them because they're wrinkle-free (Hooray for no ironing! Right, ladies?), and he'll love them for the slick way they look. Clean lines, soft fabric, classic look — need we say more?

Tee Shirt

Tees

Classic tees are perfect for everyday wear. He can wear them alone or layer them under button-ups, polos, sweaters or blazers. These short-sleeve T-shirts by Mossimo Supply Co. (Target, $10) are easy on the wallet and available in a wide variety of colors, as well as in crew-neck or V-neck styles. Grab just one or get one in every color.

Swimwear

When it's time to hit the beach or the pool, make sure your man is going in style. The John John Stripe Board Shorts by O'Neill Swimwear (Macy's, $56) are sexy enough for you and manly enough for him. The surfer style makes them super appealing, and the simple stripes and loose fit give them a look he'll love.
