Friends, except for a wallet, a watch, a pair of sunglasses, and occasionally a hat, I don't wear many accessories.
That said, I do care about them and own my fair share.
Men's accessories fall into a few broad categories, not very different from women's:
I've written about jewelry for men before. I'm not into it these days. I do own a few nice things I've accumulated over the decades. Others are like, What was I thinking, and should be sold on eBay or somewhere.
Like many men today, I own more watches than I know what to do with. The one I wear most is the $20 Casio I bought from a street vendor. The rest were purchased eons ago or were gifts.
I really only use one wallet at a time. I own a couple.
Strictly hardware store.
Neckties and scarves
I own quite a few ties but I rarely wear them. They're all second-hand. I wear scarves mostly in the winter.
I generally don't like to lug a bag around unless I need to tote a camera or books. There are some nice Made in the USA men's bags out there but they are costly (more than $100). I should sew my own.
|This must be a collector's item by now!|
Hats and sunglasses
The balder and more wrinkled I get, the more I appreciate sunglasses and hats.
An iPod, a yo yo...what have I missed folks?
Personally, I would recommend never buying accessories for a man. The ones who don't care about them won't use them and the ones who do care will want to buy them for themselves. Am I right?
Readers, if you're a man or male-identified, do you care a lot about your accessories? Which do you use most and which haven't seen the light of day in years?
Have I skipped any accessories you wouldn't be without?
Have a great day, everybody!
