The metropolitan look is not that hard to attain: in fact, you only need a few key pieces and you’ll be ready to go. The real secret is to stay consistent with colors (black, white and grey) and have a really slim fit garments. Keep it simple and sleek. If you want to change it up, just mix the textures and rotate your pants every once in a while.
White Button Down Shirt
It is very important that the shirt is slim, fitted and crisp. The shirt is going to be tucked in and fully exposed for the most part. When you become more comfortable with the look, then you can start layering some sweaters on top.
Slim Black Denim Jeans
Again, it is very important that the denim is slim (it doesn’t have to be a 15.5cm leg opening but it should around that measure). It will look fantastic, you’re just have to have to trust me on this one.
Combat soled brogues, Chelsea boots, sleek minimal sneakers (think common projects). I am personally more into the teddy-boy look, so I would go for creepers. It’s up to you to decide!
The choice is yours: plain wool, herringbone, speckled, black, grey – whatever you want. I would go with single breasted coat, but again, it’s you who makes the decision here!
Thin Leather Belt
Since your shirt will be tucked in, you need to have something on your waist. Go with a minimal hardware thin leather belt and you’ll be golden.
