To many, the idea of working from home is great. Being able to have the chance to relax in the confines of your own space without the need for the water-cooler chat to bring down your productivity levels. Obviously you’re not going to be distracted at home, but if your job requires it, you will need to conduct video calls with various co-workers and clients.
And because you’re at home, it would be all too easy to dress in something that might not be welcome in the office space, but you don’t want to get caught wearing your favourite band’s tour t-shirt from five years ago when having a call with your boss, do you?
Given the current COVID-19 outbreak, chances are many of us are working at home to help minimise the spread of the virus. So, just as it’s important to dress properly when you go to the office, it’s important to dress properly at home, which is why we’ve picked out five menswear essentials to keep you looking your best, while we all get through the worst.

We all own t-shirts, but well-fitting, genuinely stylish versions aren't so easy to come by. This pocket tee offers a lightweight cotton fabric designed to keep you cool, while the addition of a pocket gives it a subtle stylish touch.
Slim Fit Jeans
Every man worth his stylish salt needs at least one pair of well-fitting, slim-fit jeans. Get them right, and they can carry you from the home office to the evening date with the better half.
Polo shirts are a versatile menswear staple. Whether you wear one as a simple base layer, or throw one on underneath a blazer instead of a traditional dress shirt, the collared polo shirt provides a more executive look compared to a classic crew t-shirt. And if it's a conference call with the rest of the board, that's exactly the kind of look you'll need.
If there's a chill in the air but you don't want to heat the entire house just for your office, you'll want to slip on a comfortable sweatshirt. Everlane's French Terry crew is ideal. French Terry is a cotton that has moisture-wicking properties but remains comfortable. Plus, it's far more professional-looking than whatever hoodie you have lying in your wardrobe.
No men's wardrobe would be complete without a linen shirt, as it's the perfect piece to keep you looking your best, while keeping you cool. No more getting hot under the collar when your boss asks you if actually did submit that report, instead of spending your time watching movies.
