Hello, I'm Charles. We're in New York and we're gonna talk about the most important pieces you should have in your wardrobe. So, the number one item anybody should have is a solid navy suit. Probably a year-round fabric that's gonna enable you to go to any type of occasion, whether it's for a business occasion, meeting, job interview, funerals, any sort of events, really.

If you want to add another suit to your wardrobe, I think a nice gray flannel, that would keep you warm through the winter is a great addition to have. But obviously, you want to start with the navy suit first. In order to be geared up for any formal occasion, you also want to have a tuxedo, whether it's a shawl lapel or traditional notch or a peak lapel, this entirely up to you. A couple of pair of shoes with the shoes trees so that you don't keep on wearing them every single day and you let the leather rest. And don't forget to use your shoe trees because your shoes will last longer. And then the whole set of accessories, like matching belts that you can pair with your shoes. A few ties. So these are a few tips in order to have a complete wardrobe.
