    It depends on the man, his confidence, and the overall dress.
    Im not too fond of the bracelets shown, but I think a nice leather one in a suttle tone would be rather nice.

    How funny, the overall theme of my wardrobe is "badass", too.

    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.

    I'm over 25. I wouldn't wear them either because it looks odd on me, but you see them on italians all the time and it looks good. They're obviously not for everyone, but to say all men shouldn't wear bracelets is rather close-minded. No doubt said by guys that are insecure about people thinking that they're gay.
    I think you fail to see the melodrama in some answers.

    I would never say (well, not seriously) that all men shouldn't wear bracelets. That said ... I personally don't think they look good on men ... but that's just my opinion. But ... I'm not going to kick a handsome fellow out of bed for wearing one ... which brings me to your next point.

    As for the supposed gay fear ... that's odd ... as I've never associated braclets with gay men ... but rather with tacky men.

    That man has more Belgians than there are Belgians in Belgium.

    And his wrist is all a tangle in bangles.

    I use to wear a pale green jade bangle XD Which I got rid of after I saw a picture of me holding my friend's purse while I waited for her to try on clothe at a store. I promptly took it off and never wore it again.

    Braclets and Bangles and such can never be bad ass. Even if you wear one made with Shark Tooth embedded to the finger bones of Alpha Lions you still do not look bad ass.

    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.

    I like bracelets - wearing the brown one today. I just don't like the ones you posted.

    If you can pull off a bracelet in a tasteful way, I'm pretty sure women find that attractive because it conveys confidence. I submit that women wanting to fuck you is the bottom line and little else matters when it comes to clothes. Who really cares if a bunch of homophobic nerds make fun of you on a message board?

    What think we of Rick Ross's bracelet? Note also the charm on his chain contains his visage - sunglasses, beard, and all - ostensibly made of diamonds.

    Aside from that, I have to hand it to Kanye - the Horus chain is a sartorial wonder. But let's be clear: when you rap about putting a girl's pussy in a sarcophagus, you can wear shit like this and it's no biggie.

    Tutankhamen called; he wants his headstone back.

    What's with the accessory nipple on the ankle? Looks very weird with some kind of crab pincer tattoo coming out of his shoe and trying to nip it.
