    i love minsai's stuff. also worth checking out maritime supply co.

    side note: i think the skulls look childish - but i really go by the rule that i shouldn't wear anything that would lead others to question my seriousness in an office setting.

    They have great bracelets. I think that model need some work to pull it off without looking to much.

    Not that I'll be wearing all of them together but travelling to Bangkok made me realize that online retailers of bracelets with little round stones make an insane margin. I bought my tiger-eye one for 2 euros and all of the others were priced between 1 and 2.5 euros.

    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.

    I know this thread is almost dead, but I'm going to take a shot anyway! Does anyone know where to buy a Miansai Noir Anchor on leather?

    I know I can get them off the site, but shipping is ludicrous (I live in Australia). I've checked the standard go-to sites, but none seem to carry this specific one.. :(

    I've tried, but my standard ones like End., Mr. Porter, all don't seem to carry this specific one.. :( Any suggestions? It's tough shopping in Australia. Hahah
