There are a million ways to wear menswear — not all of them dependent on gender or aggressively getting a fit off — but the hundreds of stylish people we’ve interviewed over the years agree on the value of clothing that fits well, feels good, and stands the test of time (and most trends). It’s hard to find a T-shirt or a pair of boxers that does all three, but imagine if everything in your closet could meet, if not exceed, those exacting standards.
That’s the goal of the Strategist Menswear 100. It’s our ideal complete wardrobe, with all the pieces you’ll need to go to the office (or hop on a conference call), work out at the gym, attend a wedding, run an errand, or just hang out at home.
