Regardless of whether you’ve stocked up on staple pieces the likes of overshirts, indigo denim and minimal sneakers, your wardrobe won’t quite be complete without the right men’s accessories.
From sunglasses to watches, wallets to bags, accessories really do make all the difference. They can provide a welcome dose of functionality, or act as the finishing touch to an otherwise incomplete look. So before you next leave the house, try considering the following men’s accessories.
As the weather heats up, we find ourselves reaching for our sunglasses more and more. A classic pair that takes its inspiration from retro sunglasses will never fail, which is where VIU comes in. Made from the finest acetate and with anti-glare, anti-scratch UV protected lenses, the brand’s sunglasses are among the best you can find on sale today.
Often the finishing touch for many, the right watch is the perfect complement for a well chosen look. Minimal watches are some of most inoffensive, versatile styles available, and work with a wide range of outfits from casual, workwear inspired looks through to tailored office attire. Representing some of the best value for money in the world of mechanical watches is NOMOS, a German watch brand that’s well known for its Bauhaus-inspired minimal dress watches.
Tote bags are often overlooked in favour of backpacks and large weekend bags. But this is a style that’s actually incredibly adaptable and, as we look to decrease our footprint on the world, is ideal for taking shopping in replace of the plastic bag. Yes, it may be an extravagant option for the supermarket, but Bennett Winch’s tote’s minimal design and hardy cotton canvas fabric ensures it’s ideal for everyday use and beyond.
Most of us don’t leave the house without our wallets, so for something used everyday it’s surprising that one of the most essential men’s accessories is often overlooked.
Investing in a beautiful wallet will only complement the rest of your look, and ensures it’ll stand the daily abuse it’ll inevitably get. Campbell Cole is a great place to start if you’re on the hunt. Its minimally-designed, high quality leather pieces are timeless - look out for its wearable wallet, with its lanyard that’ll ensure it never gets left behind.
With more and more people working from home, good quality slippers are becoming more important than ever. Inabo has been making them since 2018, turning its attention to the finest leather and suede, two materials perfect for slippers as they get softer and age beautifully with time. Handmade in Portugal, Inabo’s slippers are made to last.
