#1 Basic Bastard 4.0

Basic Bastard 4.0

A basic bastard wardrobe are simple basics to build your wardrobe around to dress better featured prominently on Reddit’s r/malefashionadvice.

Amidst working from home more so than ever, we felt it fitting to update the Basic Bastard uniform for current times: Hoodie, drawstring chinos (or joggers), slippers. We are all about getting cozy for the fall, yet still looking sophisticated.

We put together an inspo album here:

#2 Wear a Belt with Casual Outfits

Belt with Casual Outfit

This tip comes from New York Fashion stylist for successful men in tech Peter Ngyuen: 

“While I think belts are useless for holding up your pants, the best reason to wear a belt is to emphasize pieces in your outfit, thanks to an amazing psychological trick. In a suit, where the jacket and pants match, a belt interrupts “the flow” of the suit. The bold line that’s the belt makes our eyes pause. When it comes to casual outfits made up of separates, we can use that pause to our advantage.”

#3 J.Crew's Comeback Season

J. Crew

We've been rooting for a J.Crew comeback for years. They were once the icon of Americana style offering solid quality clothes for the money.

But then they stagnated for years. They lost touch. They did not become more inclusive. Their style lost focus. Quality dropped. And the cherry on top, on May 4th, they filed for bankruptcy.

However, recently J.Crew released their Fall Season and are back with some of their best work in years: High quality basics + fresh styles + value for money.

Men's fashion writer Bart Hutchins recently profiled some of their Fall 2020 drops here:
