When it comes to style, black is a classic shade that is simple, versatile and effective. An easy way to create a confident and sophisticated black outfit is to combine varying textures, for example, wearing denim with a pair of leather sneakers. Whether you opt for an entirely monochrome look or incorporate black pieces here and there, these five men’s black style picks will elevate your wardrobe and make choosing an outfit every day easy…
Dr Denim – Clark Jeans
Swedish Brand Dr Denim are a great place to start when compiling a timeless wardrobe. Their range of men’s denim offers a selection of cuts and contemporary washes. At under $90, the Clark Black are an affordable and quality pair of jeans with a slim fit that suits all body types. They work just as well with sneakers as they do with a pair of boots. Made from a comfortable stretch cotton, with a regular rise and classic 5 pocket design, these jeans are a classic wardrobe staple.
Already making a mark on the men’s footwear scene, new label Oliver Cabell is all about quality and simplicity. Their sneakers are made using the best possible materials from ethical factories around the world that are then offered at affordable prices. The Low 1 is a clean, low-top design that is handcrafted in Spain using premium Italian leather. The jet black version is a sleek option that instantly elevates any look.
Made from a thicker, warmer grade linen than their signature shirts, Venroy‘s Winter Linen Shirt is perfect for those who appreciate the label’s relaxed tailoring, but are looking for something to carry them through the cooler months. The Winter Linen Shirt is a wardrobe essential that doesn’t sacrifice on comfort or style.
With genuine quality at the forefront of each design, Nomad‘s watches are beautifully minimal and functional at the same time. The Inline Watch highlights the clean lines attributed to the brand, with a contemporary face where numbers and markings have been arranged neatly to leave a wide outer band. A vegetable tanned leather strap, textured steel case and Swiss made movement complete the design.
Belts are often seen as purely practical items designed to keep our pants up, instead of items that contribute to a great outfit. Miansai has crafted this black leather belt as the ideal accessory for the modern minimalist. In place of a standard silver buckle, the label has added a linear black buckle that provides a seamless, contemporary design. The sleek looks of this Italian leather belt will leave you looking for any excuse to tuck your shirt in.
