For many, riches appears to be an urgent prerequisite for living a luxury fashionable lifestyle – but the gentleman understands that it’s less about showing off by splashing on conspicuous and overly lavish items and more about investing in quality pieces made to last. The more subtle, the better – but that doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate the money you’ve worked so hard for, or the prestige and luxury that comes with it, and by treating yourself to the proper things, you can strike the ideal balance. Here are some items to consider investing. Each one is stylish, timeless, and well worth the money, and promises to make you feel like the distinguished gentlemen you are.

A stylish suit that fits well is the ultimate display of good taste and one of the simplest ways to solidify the respectable and successful image you’ve worked so hard to cultivate. Sleeves or trousers that are too long, or a shirt that is too short, are surefire ways to do the opposite, and when buying a suit off the rack, it can be difficult to find one that looks and feels exactly as you’d like it to – but visiting a luxury tailor to have a bespoke suit made just for you will give you the opportunity to choose the material, cut, and color you envision, as well as ensuring that it fits you exactly as it should.
