Must Have Accessories for Men Part II
By June 28, 2012
I mentioned in Part I that I had five more awesome accessories to put on your “must have” list. I lied- I have six. You’re welcome 😉 So now that you’ve ordered your new (or updated your old) hat, shades, tie, tie bar, and watch, here are a few more items to acquire:
(and in case you didn’t see Part I, I’ve included my inspiration image again)
Fun Socks: Polo Ralph Lauren Men’s Argyle Socks– So they aren’t quite as “fun” as the guy in my inspirational image but seriously this guy is having a bit too much fun! I thought I’d choose something a bit more classic but still interesting. Plus I have too many pairs of argyle socks to count. I can’t get enough.
Leather Belt: Men’s Tumbled Dark Brown Leather Belt– There is something about a leather belt…They just get better with age. This one is casual but could be appropriate for ‘business casual’ as well. Even though it’s pretty classic something about it seems trendy.
Pocket Squares: Club Room Pocket Square, Silk Plaid Pocket Square– I’m not gonna lie; the thought of handkerchiefs kind of grosses me out. BUT I followed ‘fun guy’s lead and decided to go with it. I am in the baby/toddler phase with my kids and always have a burp cloth on hand. This is just a grown up’s burp cloth. Now that I think of it, it sounds super convenient.
Bag: OLD LEATHER COLLECTION – MESSENGER BAG – I am salivating at this bag. I’ve said before that I have no idea how men don’t carry purses. I’m sure you guys think it’s silly but sometimes I look at my husband with his keys and wallet bulging out of his pockets and think, “just get a man’s purse,will ya?!” This bag is so classy and the leather just oozes more character the longer you have it.
Grenson Shoes: Rockport Almartin Oxfords or Rockport – Proper Place Almartin (Chili Leather) – Don’t be afraid of the name. It’s just a fancy name for oxfords. The first pair is most similar to fun guy’s but of course they only come in sizes up to 13. But this “chili” pair is a close 2nd and comes in sizes up to 16. That’s more like it right?
So did I miss any must have accessories? Feel free to share those you can’t live without in the comment section below.
