You can say you hate them, that's fine, but beads? Cmon now. If a kid could afford these "beads", then I'll agree with you and call them beads. P.S. I had no idea this thread was going to unleash the fury of hell.

I think the bracelet needs to be tasteful if you're going to wear one, and definitely not "badass". I don't even think I try to incorporate being "badass" when I dress up in the morning, much less try to find a bracelet that will instantly make me badass. This has always been one of my favorites which I'd like to have one day:

Bracelets and earrings are both temporary, horrible trends that come and go. Much like the nauseating felt lapel flowers.

Just before the backlash. I think it was OK up until 8 days ago.

Dang! I miss all the trends. I've been wearing the same old Savile Row style for 40 years now.

Here are some examples of bracelets done well: Luca Rubinacci The dude from Street Etiquette who posts here sometimes: It's not for everyone, it certainly can go horribly wrong, and the bracelets posted by OP are pretty bad IMO, but it can be done well, for sure. I've not found a bracelet I would try wearing, but I kind of like these Tod's bracelets for sale at Barneys--what do people think of this:

On SF, we're down with spectators and other fads of yesteryear, but heaven help you if you dig the fads of today.

Meanwhile, guys worry about looking gay while posting on a forum that's OK with the idea of pastel pants and high-dollar murses.

RSS is understated. That,s why I think he would like a bracelet like this :






Come to think of it, I think kevinsp8 might like it too

On a serious note, this is a thread about bracelets. I actually did buy the pictured bracelet ( that,s me wearing it ), though it was to resell.

It was a lot of fun for a few days. Whether I wore it in a casual setting or in a fine dining setting, people invariably stared at it. I doubt you could say that for fine Savile Row or Rubinacci items. Someone with a sense of humor like Vox or RSS could have some fun with something like this.
