    The bracelets linked to by OP would perhaps be worn by someone into Affliction or Ed Hardy gear. In my opinion bracelets have to be subdued and made out of leather, precious metals or stones only; beads are for kids.
    You can say you hate them, that's fine, but beads? Cmon now. If a kid could afford these "beads", then I'll agree with you and call them beads. P.S. I had no idea this thread was going to unleash the fury of hell.

    I think the bracelet needs to be tasteful if you're going to wear one, and definitely not "badass". I don't even think I try to incorporate being "badass" when I dress up in the morning, much less try to find a bracelet that will instantly make me badass. This has always been one of my favorites which I'd like to have one day:

    Bracelets and earrings are both temporary, horrible trends that come and go. Much like the nauseating felt lapel flowers.

    Just before the backlash. I think it was OK up until 8 days ago.

    Dang! I miss all the trends. I've been wearing the same old Savile Row style for 40 years now.

    I think right now its still OK to wear a little bit of color in your wardrobe.

    Here are some examples of bracelets done well: Luca Rubinacci [​IMG] The dude from Street Etiquette who posts here sometimes: [​IMG] It's not for everyone, it certainly can go horribly wrong, and the bracelets posted by OP are pretty bad IMO, but it can be done well, for sure. I've not found a bracelet I would try wearing, but I kind of like these Tod's bracelets for sale at Barneys--what do people think of this: [​IMG]

    Obviously we define the word little ... a little differently.

    On SF, we're down with spectators and other fads of yesteryear, but heaven help you if you dig the fads of today.

    Meanwhile, guys worry about looking gay while posting on a forum that's OK with the idea of pastel pants and high-dollar murses.

    RSS is understated. That,s why I think he would like a bracelet like this[​IMG] :

    Come to think of it, I think kevinsp8 might like it too[​IMG]

    On a serious note, this is a thread about bracelets. I actually did buy the pictured bracelet ( that,s me wearing it ), though it was to resell.

    It was a lot of fun for a few days. Whether I wore it in a casual setting or in a fine dining setting, people invariably stared at it. I doubt you could say that for fine Savile Row or Rubinacci items. Someone with a sense of humor like Vox or RSS could have some fun with something like this.

    As others have said - plenty of people can pull them off well (PG / SP).

    no.

    bracelets are for iranians, and women
