Here at OPUMO, we're champions of buying less, but better. This means investing in classic wardrobe staples that will stand the test of time and transcend trends, so that we're not constantly rushing to replace them. This approach of course extends to accessories. Given the 'supporting role' that men's accessories are generally expected to play in one's wardrobe, it can be tempting to stock up on a new selection every season, but it pays to have a fail-safe assortment of staple accessories that won't go out of style. From versatile leather bags to minimalist jewellery, these timeless men's accessories will see you faithfully through many years of wear.
The backpack: Bennett Winch
Bennett Winch prides itself on its no-frills approach to design, imbuing each of its men's bags and accessories with ultimate functionality and a pared back aesthetic. This black leather backpack offers a sophisticated take on the classic rucksack. Handmade in England from Tuscan leather and London welded brass, it's designed to last a lifetime. To guarantee this, Bennett Winch promises to take care of any repair work your Bennett Winch bag might need for as long as you have it.
The cardholder: Acne Studios
A wallet is more than just an accessory — it's a necessity. While the array of men's wallets on the market is somewhat overwhelming, you can't go wrong with a plain black leather cardholder. This minimalist Italian-made leather style from Acne Studios is slim and compact, the perfect fit for your back pocket.
The sunglasses: Oscar Deen
Sunglasses aren't just for summer. They should be part of your year-round accessories arsenal, always on hand for whenever the sun decides to make a surprise appearance. For men's sunglasses that you'll rely on for years to come, look to Oscar Deen. The London-based independent eyewear label is fast making a name for itself as a go-to for classic frames that fuse vintage-style designs with hard-wearing construction. Its Fraser style offers a contemporary take on '60s Italian bifocals, featuring a strong brow and soft edges.
The bracelet: Le Gramme
A simple silver bracelet is an understated yet elegant addition to any man's accessories collection. This minimalist ribbon-style cuff from French jewellery label Le Gramme is just as perfect for everyday wear as it is for more sophisticated occasions. Personalise it with an engraving for an extra special touch.
The belt: Carl Friedrik
A brown leather belt is a menswear must-have. Opt for something timeless in style, made from high quality leather with minimal detailing. This men's belt from Carl Friedrik ticks all the right boxes, having been handcrafted in Italy from vegetable-tanned leather that's as durable as it is stylish. Wear it with everything from tailored trousers to your favourite pair of jeans.
The camera bag: Hardgraft
A beautifully made camera bag that prioritises both functionality and aesthetic value is a must-have for any photography devotee. With its luxurious leather exterior and soft wool felt interior, Hardgraft's classic box camera bag is a worthy investment that will last a lifetime if cared for properly. It is compact and lightweight yet roomy enough to home most types of SLR cameras.
