I have been looking for something decent (and manly, not a jewlery box) to hold tie bar(s), money clip, watches (besides their watch box), cuff links, a pair of shades, some loose cash, etc. Like a leather trimmed box comparment thing, that looks nice. Something to put ebverything away in when I get home from work and be able to find it quickly when headin out the door...

anyone use anything like that? know where to find one?

I was at Neiman the other day and saw something similar but it was like $300 which seemed a bit high, but maybe not...

That's actually a great suggestion. And right to the point. I do the same.

There was a GQ a while back that had a few different 'accesory holder' boxes but I dont remeber whoich issue it was, anyone know? I got a cigar box from a friend that works at a local smokeshop and it just isnt quite what I need/wanted, everything just gets thrown in ontop of each other, I have necklaces, bracelets, cufflinks, tie bar, watch, cash all in a tangled mess, I think I am going to spend the money and get something nice....

I have a small dresser drawer, cedar lined in which I have a small basket and a small hand-carved box from Africa that was a gift.

In that drawer I keep my pocket squares, cufflinks and assorted bits.

Look into a watch box, many have space for a few watches on top, and then a drawer or two below that to hold the rest. Even check redenvelope.com maybe, they seem to have that kind of stuff usually.

I have a cigar humidor (nicely finished, wooden box with a 'velvet' lining) that I use for out-of-sight storage. For daily use (wallet, keys, phone, watch, $clip) I use one of those leather trays w/ the pinched-up cormers...

A dresse valet. Costco recently had a "charging valet" of dark stained wood that I picked up. Looks very nice and substantial for only $40. I've seen similar for closer to $100. I love Costco.

nvrmind I found it, dont really need a 'charging valet' just a regular one would be fine, is that what this type of thing is called though, a 'valet'?
