The importance of a man's capsule wardrobe

The Importance of a Capsule Wardrobe

Implementation of a capsule wardrobe is the single most important thing you can do to ensure you can easily look good for any occasion. Done right, it'll save you a significant amount of time, money and space in your closet. However, if you lack the know-how to pick the right pieces or simply struggle with colors and patterns, putting together a capsule wardrobe can seem intimidating. That's where we at the Rugged Pilgrim can help!


Few items are as crucial to a man's wardrobe as the tee. They go with nearly any outfit and are comfortable. Keep about five, core color tees, in rotation at all times. Such as black, white, olive, navy & grey.

Pick items that are timeless, avoid buying trendy items for a capsule wardrobe. Nothing is as timeless as jeans. They look great, have versatility and they will always be in style. A pair in dark wash, light wash and black will suffice.

Despite what the weather is outside, layering an outfit will add both style and comfort. Pick up a crewneck sweater, hoodie, light bomber jacket and a couple casual button downs.

For a capsule wardrobe to be successful it must consist of stylish pieces. A nice blazer, a few long sleeve button ups, a leather jacket, pair of white sneakers, black and brown dress shoes and various accessories such as hats, sunglasses, belts, watches and wallets.
