“For whatever reason, I’ve lost interest in the array of mens socks with crazy prints—save the bright dinosaurs or neon argyle for elementary school. Uniqlo does a run of solid dress socks in pretty much every color. I love adding a mustard yellow to a charcoal grey suit. It’s a cool way to pop in color without looking too kitschy.” —Courtney Mays, stylist to Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan

“Mine would have to be the Uniqlo socks. They have so many awesome colors right now. Stock up on those summer colors!” —Warren Alfie Baker, stylist to Lucas Hedges and Harry Shum Jr

“Stance no-show socks. Love the bare ankle look and the Gamut three-pack is a great way to stock up for the summer to wear with loafers and sneakers. The arch support and silicone back are key.” —Jeanne Yang, stylist to Jason Momoa and John Cho

“Cotton Citizen T-shirts and COS cotton knit polos. The Cotton Citizen tees are the softest and fit as though they are tailored. They perfectly contour the arms; gotta show the guns! My guys are all obsessed with them. Their long-sleeve tees look so good too. You can wear the long sleeved version on its own with a trouser as well; it’s like wearing a nice, fitted sweater. The COS polos I probably use more than any other item for styling my guys because they look great on their own, under a suit, or under a cool jacket. I love them because they don’t look like golf shirts; the fabric looks like a fancy knit.” —Ilaria Urbinati, stylist to Donald Glover and Rami Malek

“The essential white tee. I won’t name a brand because white tees come in so many fabrics and variations, you could prefer one with a pocket or v-neck, however, this wardrobe staple is one that goes with just about anything; blazers, baseball jackets, printed pants, joggers, and shorts. Buy in bulk to keep them fresh!”—Khalilah Beavers, stylist to Carmelo Anthony and Jimmy Butler
