It’s always around this time of the year that I get sick of all the clothes in my closet. Luckily, there’s always great stuff at DXL to choose from. If I were to toss out all my stuff and start over with a whole new wardrobe for 2015, here are the things that I’d absolutely have to pick up:

Synrgy Long-Sleeve Check Sport Shirt

Synrgy Long-Sleeve
Check Sport Shirt

If you’re starting your wardrobe from scratch, you need a lot of foundation pieces, right? Well, you also need versatile clothing that works with a lot of other items. The Check Sport Shirt from Synrgy does exactly that. Wear this shirt with suspenders, under a jacket, and with some casual chinos or jeans.

Available in sizes to 5XL/4XLT for $27.49.

Gold Series Neck Relaxer Oxford Dress Shirt

Gold Series Neck Relaxer
Oxford Dress Shirt

Every guy needs a good basic dress shirt. Not only is this Gold Series shirt a good basic option, it has a hidden stretch neck tab that allows it to expand up to one full size. For those of us with large necks who know how hard it is to get a perfect fit, this is a lifesaver. This classic style also features a chest pocket and adjustable button cuffs.

In neck sizes to 24 for $45.00.

Brooks Brothers Clark Advantage Flat-Front Chinos

Advantage Flat-Front Chinos

A good navy or blue chino is the perfect addition to any wardrobe. Like the other things I’ve mentioned so far, they look great and they’re versatile. Grab yourself a pair of brown leather shoes, a light blue button down, and the tie of your choice, and you’ve got yourself a great look for a (somewhat)
laid back workday.

Available to size 58 for $105.

Polo Ralph Lauren Morris Straight Fit Jeans

Polo Ralph Lauren Morris
Straight Fit Jeans

You need a good pair of stylish jeans that look worn in from the first time you put them on. These jeans fit the bill. Too often when it comes to denim, bigger guys opt for super baggy options that don’t complement their overall stature. What you really want to do is find comfortable jeans that also give your body some definition. Don’t be afraid to go with a straight or slimmer fit – these fits can be really comfortable when you can get them in the size you need.

Available up to size 50 for $98.

Oak Hill Stand-Collar Quilted Bomber

Oak Hill Stand-Collar
Quilted Bomber

I’m a sucker for quilted caps and coats, so the Quilted Bomber from Oak Hill strikes my fancy. This fully lined jacket offers a snap storm placket and cuffs, as well as front, chest and inside pockets. It looks good, it’s functional – and is the kind of jacket you need in your arsenal.

Ralph Lauren Shawl-Collar Cardigan

Ralph Lauren
Shawl-Collar Cardigan

Perfect for those times when you don’t want to wear a heavy coat or jacket. This stylish cardigan is constructed from durable cotton, and features a shawl collar with button and loop closures, a 5-button front, and patch pockets. Wear it with a pair of jeans and some boots for a classic, yet refined look.
