Accessories for beginners - umbrellas, handkerchiefs and boxer shorts

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Chaps,

 

As a beginner in the world of 'style', I'm seeing how important that accessories are to complete one's look. I'm happy with my wallet and watches, so just after umbrella, handkerchief and boxer short advice.

 

As I've just finished an MA and starting a new job on Monday, I'm not flush with cash, so I want to make sure what I do buy is not total shit.  Could people advise as to what to look out for when buying accessories - common mistakes etc and perhaps suggestions for some places to look at for reasonably priced stuff for a beginner? I'm based in London, by the way.

 

Any help much appreciated.

 

Cheers,

 

JM

I would go for stuff that is good to combine with other things. For umbrellas if I am not mistaken Swaine Adeney is good, I wouldn't forget about cufflinks and belts.

In London you almost can't go wrong with anything from Drake's.

I've been really happy with my belts from Equus Leather and they offer a StyleForum discount too.

The things mentioned here aren't really "reasonably priced for a beginner" But if money really isn't an object then yes, Brigg (Swaine Adeney), and Fox umbrellas, and Zimmerli of switzerland for boxer shorts. The above poster is right about drakes, but also check out Turnbull & Asser

"Any help much appreciated."

 

Don't take off your pants at work.

 

So you don't need new boxer shorts.

 

I just saved you money.

 

You're welcome.
