Wardrobe staples are, by their very nature, something we use to fill in the blanks. And that means they're not always terribly exciting. Make like David Beckham however, and you've a surefire way to make the best of the basics (it is humanly possible, we promise). 

At the Queen's Young Leaders Award Ceremony, the OBE honoree proved why every man needs a navy suit. It'll chime with a wide array of events on the calendar, sure. But in addition to the various Queen meetings and weddings and public announcements and general do-good-ery on Beckham's calendar, the humble blue suit is an easy way to flex color without going overboard.

What's more, a razor sharp fit speaks far louder than any left-field gimmick or on-trend move, and it'll age a lot better too. That means you save a few extra quid for alteration (unlike Beckham, you don't always have to head down Savile Row), and finish with all the right accessories: pocket square, a minimally detailed tie, and a Swiss watch if you're feeling extra fancy. 

And best of all, you don't need to be one of the greatest football players to wear your own.
