Your accessories and ad-ons may be the personality of your wardrobe, but it’s really the staples that are the soul. If your closet’s soul has had its fair share of wear and tear, consider boosting your basics and investing in some new pieces that you will really put to use, or giving your loved pieces a little extra attention.

Sure, it can be fun to shop for shoes, bags, jewelry, watches and little accessories, but anyone who really knows clothes will let you in on the real secret to looking put together: investment pieces that you can wear again and again. An outfit is made not by a little bracelet with a hefty price tag, but by that perfectly tailored oxford shirt or trouser in a timeless cut with a hem that’s just where it should be.

Men, if you’re in need of made-to-measure shirts, a sharp new suit, a bespoke tuxedo or more casual and fun ready-made pieces, Pepe Bertini is a one stop shop. Not only do they have expert tailors available to customize your pieces, but they also have wardrobe consultants and personal stylists.

Another great option right in Downtown Coral Gables is Marce Men’s Couture. This store’s signature style has a bit more flair and color than some of the more traditional tailors and suit makers, but is perfect for the trendier male.

Have some investment pieces that just need a sprucing up or a little nip and tuck? Leave them to be cleaned and fitted with the seasoned experts at Society Cleaners and La Salle Cleaners. These two Gables institutions have long been trusted with precious garments ranging from bridal gowns and haute couture purchases to jeans that need an inch taken up or a popped button off a favorite shirt.
