The Best Brands To Get Wardrobe Staples From

From t-shirts to leather jackets, we’ve got you covered


When it comes to shopping, there’s really nothing as difficult — for us, at least — as finding great basics to stock up our wardrobes with.

In the fickle world of fashion, trend pieces have a short lifespan, so it’s easy to buy whatever you want at a whim, since they’re not going to last very long anyway.

Wardrobe staples like t-shirts and jeans, on the other hand, require so much more thought. They have to be of good quality, since you’re going to want to get a lot of wear out of them; they have to be comfortable; have to be able to withstand wear and tear; and be reasonably-priced.

To help you (and ourselves) out, we consulted fashion stylist Daryl Alexius Yeo for the best brands to buy basics from — click through the gallery above to see his recommendations!
