Fashion Wish List For The Man Who Likes Black

I have to admit, my grown-up son isn't really into fashion. Every few months I have to ask him if he needs anything clothes-wise, and we end up having a long discussion. This usually involves him saying he doesn't need any new clothes and me saying he does.  He also lives in black.  However, as a recent graduate, he does need some smart clothes in his wardrobe as well as some decent casual clothes for when he moves out... eventually. This is why I still end up buying his clothes as he's on a limited income.  Here is my fashion wishlist for my grown-up son who likes to wear black.


Slim fit tracksuit

Mens slim fit tracksuits  black grey and white collared tracksuit  £35 justyouroutfit

Every man should have a tracksuit in their wardrobe. The tracksuit is a versatile item, used for lounging around or working out.  This tracksuit above is bang up to date with the colour block design. It's also slim fit and modern in its style. Perfect for my son who likes black, and even he won't hate the grey and white design. This tracksuit also comes with a blue, white and black design too. 

Pop culture t-shirt

Pulp Fiction T-shirt £10 Peacocks

For a man into pop culture like my son, this Pulp Fiction t-shirt will go down a treat. In,... you guessed it... black, it has the main characters of the film on the front - Vincent and Jules. A cool design I know my son would love this t-shirt. He has a similar design by the artist Banksy already. A fashion custom t-shirt is always a good addition to a wardrobe. 

Old school trainers
Old Skool shoes £60 Vans

Thes Vans trainers were the first in the range, and are high on old school style, in fact, they are called Vans Old Skool. A low top, lace-up shoe, padded for support the toecaps are reinforced for repeated wear. A classic item to add to your wardrobe these retro trainers will never go out of fashion.


Classic suit

Suit jacket £56 and trousers £29 Next 

This slim-fitting suit, available from brands like Dobell, has a peaked
collar, twin back vents and flap pockets making it the perfect choice for interviews.

It's also machine washable so you don't have to worry about taking it to the dry cleaners. An easy-care suit for a smart occasion or a day in the office, just pair with a white shirt and tie and you have an interview outfit too.

Chelsea boot

 Chelsea boot £30 H and M

Chelsea boots are a great addition to any wardrobe. These black Chelsea boots by H and M are a bargain price in the sale and made of leather with rubber soles. This versatile boot can be worn with jeans or a suit making them a wardrobe essential.


A great watch is more of an accessory, but when elevating someone’s style from formal to a cut above, a collection of accessories, especially in a young man who looks at his phone to tell the time, can make all the difference. You could buy a Rolex Submariner pre-owned, but any standard watch can add a bit of formal bling to a nice classic suit and Chelsea boots.

Polo shirt

Levis black polo shirt £35 Debenhams

A polo shirt like this is a staple in your wardrobe for the smart/casual look. With three buttons, a small collar and a red Levi logo being the only detail, no one can fail to like this simple but stylish cotton polo shirt. 

I hope you like this fashion wish list for the man who likes black. Do you know anyone like this?
