    A watch and a thin leather bracelet will do for everyday wear.

    This is a bit over the top, but oddly I like it as well...

    ^ That is awesome.

    Malford of London has a great selection of bracelets I just discovered... Here are a few.

    I wear a gift from my wife: a Jutta Neuman barbell bracelet, in "natural", but it's been several years, so it is pretty dark now, with a sterling silver barbell:

    and a Flathead S-shaped leather bracelet, also in natural with a sterling silver S:

    I also have some black and cordovan bands in the same models, but they get less play.

    Of course, being a smug bastard, I need to mention that I've been wearing simple leather bracelets for about 6 years now, well before the current iteration of this trend started, and after I stopped wearing a watch and my left wrist felt empty. Also, I haven't worn a suit or portjacket this side of my son's baptism (over the holidays), so I'm not sure that my wearing them really puts me in the #menswear trend at all.

    I found this a few weeks ago, old pawn Navajo silver from around WWII. Now it sits between my watch and a flathead double wrap leather s-hook band, like Fok's ex-natural now dark brown.

    It was just for a photo that friend wanted to take showing both Cartier pieces. I never wear any of my watches on the same wrist as my bracelet.
    Thanks and best regards,

    This is hilarious. Best way to wear one (or more than one) is not to wear any. The best bracelet for a man, besides a classic watch, is flesh. Don't do it.

    I'll come back here in a year or two to see what all the guys are doing for waxing their pubes, what the newest sundress for men will be, and to see how much further our gender has devolved into womanhood when it comes to "fashion."

    The best trick the devil ever played was not convincing everyone he didn't exist. It was creating "fashion" awareness among men. I am so glad I am fifty. I still have about thirty years to go before dying, if all goes well, but may take myself out sooner with a Mossberg to the face if this shit keeps up.

    Keep it classy, San Diego!

    Ok. Going to get my mani pedi now. I just bought a pair of open toe gladiator sandals with four inch ankle straps for spring on iamwomaneventhoiamman.com and want to start practicing before Spring rolls in.

    Their effect was negated by the Narnia theme - a guy trapped in a closet [​IMG]

    Haha, I probably shouldn't chat shit like that considering I get pissed off when people on here call me homo, but damn he is trying hard!

    Thats what I read, too.

    But next thing you know, he'll be claiming the Romans in their dresses were too fey to have conquered the Mediterranean, and that there's a conspiracy of historians afoot.
