The best clothes are the ones that you'll still have in your closet a decade from now. The same goes for watches, ties, and belts--even good leather shoes. Sunglasses, too. (Unless you're one of those folks who's hopeless about holding onto shades.)
In that vein, here are three timeless pieces that will work through almost all the seasons and that you can dress up for a job interview or down for a coffee shop run. And I guarantee you that you'll hang on to these for the long haul.
The 121 Necktie from Otis James. This black and gray wool tweed tie is simple and its slightly nubby texture is a nice change of pace from your run-of-the-mill silk tie. Handmade by Nashville's own Otis James, the tie comes affixed with an individually numbered, hand-printed label.

The Non Iron Dress Shirt from J. Crew in Classic Navy gingham. Talk about classic; gingham has been around since the mid-18th century, and though the fabric had the most traction this century in Judy Garland's "Dorothy" dress, gingham is now more "grown man" than it is "little girl." This shirt is proof.

Peter Nappi Romeo. Made here in Nashville, this classic shoe is crafted with a single seam and a single piece of leather. It's designed to mold to the foot after some wear, which "allows for a uniquely comfortable fit."
