A wrist is a terrible thing to waste. I understand perfectly that the phone tells the time. That’s cool and all, but I still think you should strap on a watch. A watch is the one piece of man jewellery that we can get fully behind. Not only does it punctuate an outfit, it also says something about who you are or at least who you aspire to be. So forget about technological advances for a moment. Think of a watch as you would a tie, who cares if it’s not purely functional? It still plays an integral role in what it means to be a man. Invest in a good quality one.

The greater number of ties that a man has the better. Your tie depends on how formal or informal the occasion is. Be careful on how you choose your tie. It is important to avoid ties with a dime a dozen material because even if you pair it with your expensive shirt and suit it’ll still look cheap. Buy the one made of silk material. It is the best of all. But for informal ties you can settle with cotton blends. Whatever you make of it. CHOOSE WISELY.

Your wallet is another accessory you need to invest in. Most men take their wallets for granted. They go for years without replacing it or cleaning it out. Your wallet needs to look classy, feel elegant and of course since it stores your identification documents and the money you worked so hard to get. You can easily find high quality wallets for affordable prices. Quality is not something that can be substituted with anything else. You’ve got to give a quality wallet its due importance in the accessory ladder.
