We're all about embracing trends. The rolled-up pant. Colored shoe laces. The half tuck. But, we realize that not all dudes can get into whatever Details or V is pushing this season, and we know that for some guys, shopping for clothes rings in at about last place when it comes to weekend warrior-ing.
Unfortunately, the holiday season means holiday parties, and we want to make sure you men look your best in front of your bosses/in-laws/crushes. If you don't have a crisp white button-down or two, start there and take those stained or tired shirts out of rotation. Then, bookmark this guide to seasonal essentials (you know, things like a suit that actually fits, go-anywhere boots, a crew-neck sweater...) that we think every guy should add into their rotation of go-to staples. Unlike your female counterparts, you can bust these festive items out again and again — even after Christmas. And, our editor-in-chief wants us to remind you: Please don't leave the house with your hair all messed up...swipe a little product before you hit that spiked eggnog. We guarantee you'll get some action underneath the mistletoe this year....if you listen to us, that is.
