True, in no way whatsoever are those bracelets conservative in style or trying to be. They're not for most people, but there are a few guys I know who can pull stuff like this off with ease and they are straighter than an arrow (for the dude talking about bracelets being gay). And I do agree that for the most part bracelets can make a guy not exactly look very manly, but my point is that bracelets aren't anymore inherently feminine than any other form of jewelry. And yes, watches are jewelry. Straight men wear earrings, necklaces, watches, and bracelets. Gay men wear earrings, necklaces, watches, and bracelets. It has to do with the style of the item combined with how the item is worn combined with the style of the wearer combined with the look of the person combined with how the person acts combined with a bunch of other factors.

The bracelets linked to by OP would perhaps be worn by someone into Affliction or Ed Hardy gear. In my opinion bracelets have to be subdued and made out of leather, precious metals or stones only; beads are for kids.

Straight men, yes. Men who don't want to look like idiots, not so much.

I'd say it's less about masculinity and more about taste. But this is America. Tacky is not yet a crime.

I guess bracelets can be cool on the right kind of people. But the ones you linked to looks horrible in my opinion. But what do i know, first post

Bracelets, rings, tie bars--ridiculous. Look at this doofus:

I was taking issue with a statement that insulted me. If you think for a moment that I was sincerely accusing everyone on StyleForum of being gay then you're the simple-minded idiot in this dialogue (ETA: and are you really so uneducated, insecure and homophobic that the mere idea someone could be suggesting you're a homosexual is enough to prompt a retort such as yours?). Otherwise, I'd love to know on what basis you have accused me of being "brainwashed" (!?). Why are there so many utter pricks around here with sub-zero reading comprehension?

I can't wait to see how you are going to climb out of this new hole you've dug for yourself.

I'm okay with bracelets, but the ones in those links look like something my girlfriend would wear

Trying to look badass wearing bracelets is for kids and sissies.

It has to do with the style of the item combined with how the item is worn combined with the style of the wearer combined with the look of the person combined with how the person acts combined with a bunch of other factors.

30 years ago, ALL of my (straight and queer) friends started wearing earings. I found it ridiculous. I still do.

(Of course, I do not mean to say that all men wearing earrings are ridiculous. But I think that they would look cooler and less "trying hard to look cool" without the earrings. The same for necklaces and bracelets... Of course, I am talking about men in the following context: European, middle or upper class.)

well, olddog, based on what i've been reading in this thread you're OBVIOUSLY a flamboyant old queen. i mean, that lilac shirt and goatee just totally give it away, right? not to mention that museum of fine arts poster behind you. and those books! the evidence just keeps mounting. next you'll tell us that you're an art critic. or some "gay" profession like that. you do realize that it's subversive trouble-makers like you that are responsible for the moral corruption of this once-great nation, right?
