It’s often said that a selection of luxury staples is all you will ever need. And that is invariably true, after all it was Hardy Amies who said ‘a man should look as if he has bought his clothes with intelligence, put them on with care and then forgotten all about them.’ What he of course is referring too, is buying well, buying clever and buying a range of essentials that can mould to any mood and any occasion.

Although the terms of ‘staple’ or ‘essential’ appear so easy, they can be hard to interpret. For instance, when do you decide what plain white shirt is best or what array of simple tees is best for you? Thankfully Form & Thread has the answer.
