MENSWEAR: THE WARDROBE PIECES WORTH INVESTING IN

Over the years I make occasional investment purchases – for my wardrobe. Investment pieces should always be well crafted and timeless so you can wear them time and time again. Last year a wrote about my love for camel tones, especially during the Winter. Ever since I’ve wanted the perfect camel cashmere sweater, something really special.

The pieces worth investing in are shoes or boots, leather jackets, coats or a cashmere sweater. Trend driven items or basics such as t-shirts I usually save on.

Classic pieces like chelsea boots, a black biker jacket or a trench coat will never go out of style. When you make the investment with a brand that specialises in that specific product you get the quality and craftsmanship. British brand John Smedley has been around since 1784 and specialises in quality knitwear. They have so many styles in different colours using wool, cotton or cashmere. I had my heart set on a cashmere knit in a rich camel tone so I went for a fine knit in a classic long sleeve with a round neck. It’s super soft and keeps me warm, despite being so finely woven. I love the colour so much and plan to keep it for special occasions.

    Cashmere is divine and that color looks really nice on you! I like the camel color too. I have a cashmere cardigan I wear all the time in the fall. It’s so soft and warm regardless of how thin it actually is.
