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.
