What maketh a stylish man? Is it the bespoke suit that he wears or maybe the designer shoes that he meticulous pairs with his outfits? We ponder on the formula of fine style when it comes to the way gentlemen dress and we come to realise that beyond clothes and labels it’s the finer details that matter most.
It’s the strong sense of character that rises above the classic wardrobe pieces and the trendier additions that makes for a well-dressed lad. It’s the small nuances that turn heads and even have people asking, “Where did you get that?”
From the quirky printed necktie worn against a tailored suit, the distinct eyewear that surely stands out, or even the cool wallet that is better than most bi-folds. We put the highlight on well-crafted accessories—when chosen carefully and worn with confidence—that makes every outfit a gentleman’s own.
Step out with your essentials in tow. Have your cards and bills in a standout bi-fold like Steve Madden’s logo embossed style or keep your pockets slim with Vaultskin and C-Secure's line of RFID-protected cardholders.
A gentleman should always have a pen close by, we highly recommend one—or two— from Cross. It makes for a dapper statement that says you’re the boss.
Dress up your everyday garb with accessories that make an impact. A handsomely designed bag, like the Ledbury Single Document Case from Hackett, amidst a sea of leather portfolios and briefcases is perfect for adding a dash of character to your office wardrobe. Mix it up with a beautiful tie bar and inspired cuff links from Tateossian, and finish the look with strong and sensible frames, like Prive Revaux’s MLK in tortoise gray.
Feel At Home
We extend the enriching finesse that accessories bring to your life beyond the confines of fashion. Be the kind of gentleman that carries a fantastically crafted flask like Ted Baker's hip flask. Maybe show off your taste for the finer things in life by shaking up your own cocktails at home with a mean home bar set-up. Start with Thumbs Up's selection of bar sets and shot glasses for a good start.
