Every wardrobe is a unique animal, but even the wildest ones share a few common bones. The great thing about those fundamental pieces—stuff like polo shirts, denim jackets, and wool sweaters—is that they’re endlessly reinterpreted by a dizzying array designers. So whether your tastes skew streetwear or Savile Row (or somewhere in between), there’s probably a version that speaks to your personal style. Consider this a suggested skeleton to help build your closet into a beast of its own. Happy hunting.
