Style Shortcut: Our Top 10 Men's Bestsellers

Ever wondered what the most popular men's pieces at Selfridges are? We've done the hard work for you and analysed the complex data from our menswear buyers to reveal our top 10 bestselling items – otherwise known as our shortcut to style. No thinking necessary. Ever wondered what the most popular men's pieces at Selfridges are? We've done the hard work for you.

THE POLO SHIRT 2.0

Every guy needs a few well-fitting polo shirts in their arsenal – that's a given. What we love about this little number, though, is how Givenchy has moved the logo from the left chest (standard) to the neck (nice twist, guys).


THE NO BRAINER

First introduced in 1953, Gucci's horsebit shoes are such an iconic piece of design, they feature in the Costume Institute's permanent collection at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art. Crafted from supple grained leather, all men deserve at least one pair (preferably two) in their shoe rotation.

CAN'T GET BETTER THAN CALVINS

Marky Mark may be a distant – yet fond – memory, but Calvin Klein still makes some of the best underwear in the world. The brand's basic boxer briefs sit low on the waist, just below your jeans – in other words, exactly where they should.

THE STYLE STALWART

When a fashion icon – Ralph Lauren – makes a wardrobe icon – the white tee – how can you go wrong? This round-neck version is cut from super-soft cotton jersey for a neat, slim fit and finished with the label's signature pony logo on the chest.

THE NEW-AND-IMPROVED MAN BAG

The trusty backpack has now superseded the leather cross-body bag as the modern way to confidently carry your stuff to the office. Lightweight, durable as hell, and with enough compartments to transfer the entire contents of your man tray/drawer, this is what the phrase hands-free was really meant for.

THE ICONIC TIGER SWEAT

A bestseller since its conception in 2013 (has it really only been three years?), Kenzo's signature Tiger sweat blends that just-right combination of recognisable fashion item plus easy-to-wear silhouette. Plus, it promises never to go out of style.

THE CLASSY LEATHER WALLET

Sleek, understated and with just the right number of compartments for your credit cards and work pass, when you slip out a classy leather wallet to pay for work drinks, it's a simple way of showing you care about the details. As devoid of brash as is possible, sometimes it's easy to see how a pared-back design can prove hugely popular.


THE WORK SHIRT WITH A TWIST

Paul Smith first cornered the market in personality shirts you can get away with in the office, and this Thom Browne update on a classic white shirt shows just how far the sartorial confidence of the male British workforce has come. With the label's signature stripes on the sleeve, it strikes just the right balance between preppy and professional. A genius work outfit update.

THE CAN'T DO WITHOUT

Plain? Maybe. But essential? Hell yeah. Given the thought of a sock wardrobe is some of our male colleagues' idea of nirvana, why scrimp on socks that do a really good job. This Calvin Klein style proves popular time and time again because, well, they don't fall down! It's as simple as that.

WHERE FORM MEETS FUNCTION

Comfortable and with a great design, these mesh and suede sneakers from Valentino offer the ideal combo of looking good and feeling like a proper trainer.. And the best bit? You can totally get away with wearing them to work. Them's the new rules, peeps.
