There are a few staples every man should have in his closet, among them a well-worn pair of jeans and formal watch for when black tie beckons. The key for every piece is versatility: When you stock your shelves with complementary items you can either dress up or dress down, you'll spend a lot less time thinking about what to wear. That's why we're digging this tastefully restrained crewneck from the dudes at Saturdays Surf NYC, who know a thing or two about effortless cool. Sure, it's sinfully soft, but it's also a fitting addition to your wardrobe that you can throw on year-round. Try pulling it over a crisp collared shirt for spring, then use it as a mid-layer throughout fall and early winter. Just don't dangle it from a hanger – that'll stretch out the neck. On second thought, considering the mileage you're likely to eke out of yours, we doubt it'll see much closet time anyway. [$140; saturdaysnyc.com]
