There comes a time in everyone’s existence when your wardrobe has to make way for more grown-up additions. Still, that doesn’t mean parting ways with streetwear and sportswear brands altogether — labels such as Norse Projects, along with Nike and New Balance, offer steezy pieces that easily get the gent’s stamp of approval.

For those looking to elevated what’s in their wardrobe, more grown-up offerings abound from higher-end brands such as Engineered Garments, Our Legacy, and Canadadian retailer HAVEN‘s in-house line.

Ready to give your wardrobe a much-needed OG update? Here, we’ve selected some key pieces every Original Gentleman should have in his wardrobe, including essential tops, bottoms, and footwear.

Some of our best picks include a Highsnobiety-approved take on the classic white poplin shirt by Norse Projects — which can be easily styled either with a pair of kicks or loafers — as well as a beautiful Nicholas Daley patchwork silk jacket, as pictured above.

Growing up doesn’t have to mean letting go of your favorite pair of jeans, but we do recommend going for more structured, workwear-infused options such as Stan Ray‘s OG Painter jeans.

And, when it comes to the kicks, OG-ready options span everything from dad-core sneakers such as New Balance‘s dadcore M990s and Nike‘s Air Tailwind 79s, to revisited classics including HAVEN’s GORE-TEX version of the Clarks Wallabee and UNDERCOVER’s spin on the Dr. Martens 1461 loafer.
