This goes for every student, raw denim is a must in every closet. It’s durable, stylish and will literally last you a long time. Honestly, the more you wear it, the better it looks. As the CEO of Levi’s said, “You don’t have to wash these….ever.” Even better, you can get a pair of these from UNIQLO for like $40.

T-shirts are a must for any guys, however for a young guy, if you pair a t-shirt with a nice pair of denim and you’ll look more stylish than the rest of campus.

You need at least one, and if you’re young and looking for quality watch, I highly recommend Original Grain. I say this because first of all, they’re affordable. When you’re young, you don’t want to spend $300-$500 on just one timepiece. Most of their watches are in the $100 range, and a little secret for you guys is always go to their sale tab, they have one piece that’s around $80 and if you apply our special “TMF” discount code.

Secondly, it’s a unique design. Go ahead and check out their website, and look at their variety of watches that they offer. I can tell you right now, it’s like nothing you have ever seen. Original Grain does push the envelope when it comes to unique design.

Lastly, they give back to the environment, that’s always a win-win situation to me. A company that gives back is a company I want to support. You’re not only getting a good product but you’re also planting a tree in Africa, if you want to check out their story, I highly recommend you do, click here and pick yourself a quality watch.

It can be any jacket, whether it be a biker, denim or bomber, whatever suits you best. If you ask me, I’d go to H&M, they have a wide variety of jackets that start out from $50 and they’re pretty decent quality for the amount of money your paying. In addition, they have any type of style you can think of.

As a young guy, this will be the most versatile sweater you will own. It will keep you warm in cold classrooms, and if it fits right, it’s going to give extra style points.

You need a pair of sneakers that you can wear day in and day out. A pair of beaters like some Vans Old Skool that look good when get dirty as well. Stan Smith’s are also a great everyday shoes. Depending on your preference, you can’t go wrong on either ones.

Sometimes, streetwear isn’t the best option in some situations. Being able to switch styles and still look good shows that you know how to dress. Therefore, buying a quality and well-fitting pair of chinos is an essential in every guy’s wardrobe.

I’ve said this before, backpacks will literally make or break your outfit. You can have killer style, but if you throw on a nerdy backpack, you ruined the whole fit. I always recommend buying either a canvas or leather backpack.

I don’t know if you guys noticed but flannels were extremely popular last year and it just as popular this year. However, if you live somewhere hot like Florida, wearing a flannel is unbearable, so I recommend you get yourself some casual plaid button downs.

As you guys know, a good pair of headphones is an essential for every man. As of right now, my favorite earbuds are the Apple Airpods. They’re stylish, compact and they sound amazing. I’ve tried so many bluetooth headphones and these are the best.
