Menswear staples from preppy to rugged

DENIM longsleeves with fabric patch combination on collar and shoulder and elbow strap, Pierre Cardin; white V-neck modern fit shirt, Hanford; stretch slim fit pants with checkered combination on inner waist and hem, Pierre Cardin; Marden Grove–smart shoes, lace-up with simple crafted detailing with contrast stitching and piping and teamed with a slim lightweight sole, Clarks

Cinderella may cater mainly to women, but it is also a retail haven for male shoppers, with house brands such as Clarks and Pierre Cardin, and consignment labels such as Hangten, Hanford, Caribee and Chups Shop.

For unusual nautical combination, one may go for a Breton-striped round-neck sweater in classic blue or red, and match it with dress-up lace shoes in smooth black leather, or for a less serious interpretation, loafers with a ridged outer sole.

For everyday wear, one may maximize denim mileage in three ways: a patchwork chambray long-sleeved shirt with slim fit pants in dark brown and casual lace-ups in taupe. One may top it off by wearing a white V-neck underneath.

Guys into mix and match may play with a denim long-sleeved button-down that combines multiple checkered prints.

For a toughened look, one may gear up in head-to-toe black, from round-neck shirt to dressy sneakers in suede, to carry-all. One may inject a bit of color to break the monotony by rolling up the pants to show off a rainbow-checked cuff.

Classic collared shirt

For a classic schoolboy look, one may tie a sweater over the shoulders. Or don an Aztec print sweater with casual shoes with an extra light sole and a medium-sized luggage bag.

Nothing is more preppy than the classic collared shirt. A pop of blue from a round-neck polo and cobalt loafers can be matched with brown-hued tapered pants. The same shirt in black and pink stripes may be matched with traditional lace-up leather shoes.

To channel James Dean, one may slip into a sleek leather jacket with white round-neck shirt and boots, and accessorize with round frames and an oversized backpack. One may also pair a biker vest with a logo print tee and dark-washed skinny jeans.
