Hello, gentlemen of the Internet! I am back with another helpful roundup of basic staples for your wardrobe. Last time we talked about OUTERWEAR. Today we are going to look at some basic tees and shirts you should have in your wardrobe. As ever, these can be mixed and matched with all of the other basics we've discussed thus far. A button-up with a hoodie and/or denim jacket? YES. A striped tee with a classic tailored blazer? SIGN ME UP. 

1. James Perse White Crewneck Jersey T-shirt / 2. G Star CL Hugh Striped Crew / 3. Gant Varsity Cardigan Sweater / 4. J. Crew Selvedge Chambray Utility Shirt / 5. Shipley & Halmos Stripe Polo / 6. Steven Alan Reverse Seam Shirt / 7. J. Crew Merino Half-zip Sweater / 8. Yohji Yamamoto Sailor Striped Henley / 9. J. Crew Cashmere V-neck Sweater

Now, obviously, you don't have to have ALL of these. But a nice solid tee, a button-up shirt, and a half-zip sweater will take you everywhere, in my book. You could get by really well with just those three items. However, I cannot think of a hotter thing than a nicely-fitted striped polo. And that chambray work shirt is a classic, and looks good with everything, so if you don't want to be classically amazingly dressed, you should skip it. (What I am saying is, buy it now.) Also, a loose-fitting striped henley? CAN YOU GO WRONG WITH THAT? I ask you.

Next time we will talk about bottoms -- pants, jeans, shorts, and the like. In the meantime, take yourself shopping for these items. You deserve it! And the world deserves to see you dressed so well.
