    I think I can cover most of it with:


    • Pocket Squares
    • Tie Bar
    • Collar Pin
    • Wristwatch
    • Scarf
    • Cufflinks
    • Umbrella
    • Briefcase
    • Eyewear
    • Fountain Pen
    • Wallet
    • Pocket Flask
    • Notebook


    Those are all must haves...

    EDIT: Spelling

    Pocket flask, that's nice. Not many have that anymore (or do they?) what kind of brands do you go with on these things that you like?

    Wristwatch - Vintage Seamaster with a Smart Turnout band.

    Sunglasses - Ray Ban's Tortoise Shell Way Farers

    Just about everything else, save the fountain pen, I can get from Ralph Lauren (actually I could get the watch/sunglasses from RL too, but I don't see the point for me, personally, to), or Brooks Brothers.

    That's awesome. You have some pics on that would be great to see. Even cufflinks from RL?

    I don't really have cufflinks since I don't have shirts that need them, at least for now - but I never really planned on it.

    I might say Cigars, and Pipes could be a valid accessory...I could carry a Pipe and be all Holmes about it...

    What's wrong with a Tie Bar or Collar Pin?

    I hope you don't misunderstand that I think every single piece of accessory was meant to be put on at the same time.

    If not then well... I think they are great accessories that can characterize an outfit.

    Neither is an accessory that one must have in order to be well dressed. In fact, I think one is better dressed without either.

    That's pretty moronic to say considering I mentioned a fountain pen, umbrella, notebook, pocket flask and wallet ... None of which are must in order to be well dressed.

    A tie bar and a collar pin can make an outfit look much tidier and add some personality.

    Note, the OP did not ask for accessories that are in order to make one "well dressed"...He said accessories 'You Must Have'....so I answered in respect to me, and I guess you answered in respect to yourself.
