    White Shirt

    The ever-classic keystone in every man's wardrobe, the standard white shirt can be an invaluable clothing item in both casual and professional settings; the key is that it's subtle enough to resist fashion trends. Image Courtesy: Getty Images

    Blue Jeans

    There probably isn't a stylish man alive that does not own at least one pair of blue jeans. From Levi's to Diesel, the original blue jeans can be slightly faded or a dirty denim, and yet they're still so programmed in our society that we continue to buy them, regardless of trends.

    Black Loafers

    Free from laces, the loafer is the ultimate in slip-on, slip-off comfort. And because of their minimalism, they will never go out of style. These are a certified male wardrobe staple for their true virtue: simplicity. Image Courtesy:

    When looking for something timeless, avoid big, clunky models, and those that wrap around. Oval-shaped sunglasses are your best bet especially those similar to aviator glasses, but smaller; these have been worn for years and odds are good this fact will not change.

    Solid Colour Ties

    Solid, dark-colour ties like burgundy, gray or dark blue are a great investment. Flashy colors like yellow and pink are to be avoided, as they tend to come and go with the trends. Image Courtesy: Getty Images

    A great pair of cufflinks can add a lot to your formal appearance. Silver is the way to go here, as they are usually subtler than gold. Avoid cufflinks with slogans on them. Image Courtesy: Getty Images

    Polos are classic and are available in various fits. They are great shirts for casual days when you don’t want to wear a tee. Paired with chinos, they even work appropriate in a casual office culture. Wear your polo with denim, shorts, and even your sport coat. Image Courtesy: Getty Images

    For most men, cologne and after-shave application is such a daily routine that a particular scent becomes part of their identity. For something that won't fall out of fashion, stay away from strongly scented colognes. Image Courtesy: Getty Images

    Black Belt

    You'd be hard-pressed to find a man who does not own a black belt; it's just one of those staples that all men have. Belts are sort of like referees; they're at their best when you don't notice them that much. Image Courtesy: Getty Images

    Sports Bag

    For the man who likes to stay in shape, a versatile gym bag is a necessity. Making sure your bag is strong and understated in terms of color, style and design is your best bet. Image Courtesy: Getty Images
