1. The T-shirt

During the colder months, layer this staple T ($72) beneath your sweat or wear it solo once the summer hits; the supreme quality will ensure it lasts throughout 2014 and beyond. The super soft Egyptian cotton fabric and classical fit found Sunspel’s bold promise that this is the best T-shirt you will ever wear.

2. The Sweater

London-based brand Good Measure is undoubtedly one to watch for 2014. Any lover of luxury basics will admire their M-21 Crew Neck Sweatshirt ($131) for the quality and purity of its design. Crafted from 350g loop back jersey, this sweat features all the design features of vintage US sportswear, from the ribbed V-neck insert to the cover stitched seams.

3. The Jacket

Jacket trends come and go – 2013 was undoubtedly the year of the varsity right? Think classical and pared-back for 2014 and you’ll literally be able to work it with anything in your wardrobe. The Motorcycle Jacket ($460) by A.P.C. will last a lifetime. Layer your trusty sweat beneath it until summer when you can change up for your white T – razor-sharp and timeless.

4. The Jean

True denim dudes know Japanese denim is the only way to go right now. Our Legacy’s Raw Blue Jeans ($192) were made in Italy using only the finest raw 12 oz Japanese denim. The deep indigo shade is spot on for 2014 and details including the exposed rivets and removable front cotton-loop create a timeless workwear vibe.

5. The Boot

French footwear brand Paraboot are set for a huge resurgence in 2014. Either way, we love their Chamrousse boot ($536.58) in this versatile smooth coffee hue. The boot is Norwegian sewn and features a durable rubber sole and smooth full-grain calf leather outer. These babies will probably go with everything in our wardrobe and will take you from work to weekend in one smooth stride.

Freezing jeans shouldn’t really be a thing — here’s why
Why you should stop putting your jeans in the freezer

Recently, I reached into a friend’s freezer for an ice sphere and came across a pair of neatly folded jeans. This sight took me by surprise not because it was unusual, but because the practice felt so dated. For those that might not have heard of the practice, the idea behind freezing your best jeans is that freezing denim kills bacteria from well-worn jeans without actually having to wash them and affect the fade or overall integrity of the denim.

When did freezing jeans become a thing?
Jeans have been around since 1871. These popular pants were invented by Jacob W. Davis and patented by Davis and Levi Strauss. Though people have anecdotally frozen their denim for years, more as an odor-removing process than anything else, Levi Strauss actually pushed this practice into the mainstream in 2011. In 2014, Levi Strauss' CEO Chip Bergh repeated longstanding advice from the jean company; don't wash your jeans, freeze them instead. Bergh's reminder was more of a conservation effort to get people to freeze their jeans to stretch out the time between washes.
