Bracelets For Men - How To Do It Properly. - Page 15

post #211 of 216
I am surprised I missed this thread for so long. I am even more surprised, given the general conservatism regnant on CM, that there is so much interest in and enthusiasm for male bracelets. I should have thought the question, "How to do it properly," would have been answered by a chorus of "not at all." Although there were some few answers to this effect, there was hardly a consensus.

I had rather thought bracelets for men were a relic of the hippie era. As a counterpoise to hippie beads, some people wore bracelets with the names of POW/MIAs on them. I wore neither. Some men I worked with wore bracelets made from the tail hairs of elephants. Invariably, they had shot the elephants themselves. In my more sanguinary youth, I probably would have enjoyed shooting an elephant, but I still wouldn't have worn one of those bracelets, in all probability.

In sum, I strongly dislike jewelry on men. I won't even wear a wedding ring, which I consider to be (for men) an un-American novelty. (They really only came into vogue in the post-WWII era.) However, I do recognize that in some other cultures, jewelry for men was far more commonplace. The Northmen in their heroic age were certainly a hyper-masculine lot, yet they were very big on rings and arm jewelry and such, just to give one example.

Maybe I am just being an old fogey.

By the time this thread arrived, much discussion had been had and many of the naysayers had effectively given up. Bracelets were quite the thing for a while, along with fake lapel flowers, but both fads have waned.

Just bought this one.

Would it be possible to make it smaller?

I prefer metal.
