    sometimes i feel like my arm is naked, but im not sure what to wear on my wrist at times. plz dont say tats, right now that is not an option

    i have an old fossil watch from HS that looks decent imo. im passively searching for a more formidable replacement. i cant really be too baller right now and drop 5k on a watch, we will put the upper limit at 2k

    but this isnt just about watches. i see PG fits and always notice how he wears wrist accessories so well. i just dont know shit about them, or where to start looking for them. those leather wrap things from 3sixteen never did it for me

    any recommendations?

    Billykirk stuff is too chunky on the whole IMO. I prefer somethinga little more subtle on my wrist.

    I always wear a string or two of beads (ones I got from various temples in Japan). They're pretty simple, classy, and give a hint of flare without being too out there.

    I don't like a lot of man bling. It can start to look fussy. But an attractive watch is a good, simple accessory that can make an impact.

    I bought one of those Robert Geller / Driftwood blackened bronze braid/chain bracelets from last fall. Definitely the best wrist accessory I own. [​IMG] (on the right)

    i don't own or wear one, but i think a simple silver bracelet similar to a medical bracelet is all i could wear aside from a watch.

    I'll see if I can find a pic where it shows up, but Valentino Garavani (the guy, not the brand) always has great wrist accessories...

    3sixteen?

    tanner?

    3-4 colored beaded bracelets to frame your oversized inappropriate diving watch while wearing your khaki suit?

    I wear 2 bead bracelets and hopefully will get an Unlucky leather double wrist strap soon. That's about it.

    Ever since joining that fraternity, you've started making less and less sense. [​IMG]

    I wear a Flathead single strand bracelet and a "barbell" bracelet from Jutta Neuman. Both are pretty distinctive, but are simple designs on slim leather (much slimmer than Billy Kirk or 3Sixteen,) and are no jarring.
