The 10 Best men's accessories
When it comes to menswear, flashes of personality can still shine through when wearing a suit - the devil is in the detail
With trouser-legs set to remain at ankle-grazing heights for another season, socks will be on show and any old pair simply will not cut the mustard. A bold pop of colour: this luxurious pair will complete a suited-and-booted look nicely while natural fibres will ensure feet can breathe.
Wearing French cuffs shows dedication to a certain sartorial ideal – after all, they’re something of a faff first thing. But cufflinks are a seemingly endless way to add a personal touch discreetly. A quick glimpse of these whimsical bunnies is one of the few things that can muster a smile at any time – even during a Monday morning finance meeting.
The Mad Men-inspired mania for all things mid-century of a few years ago may have calmed down a bit now, but some retro touches seem to have permanently entered the conscious of the modern man. This pocket square is just right to complete a summer suit – after all, blue is the colour to be seen in this season.
An expensive key fob may seem completely frivolous – but what could be more valuable than the keys to your home? And this wise little owl – with a choice of coloured rope – will ensure they’re well looked-after.
There are few things more jarring than a pair of casual summer trousers worn with a formal black leather belt. If you don’t want to channel the PM in posed holiday-photo mode, opt for something like this woven and leather design – just the ticket to hold things up.
For most, the magic spell of international travel has been broken by stringent security measures. This graphic tag will not only bring a touch of luxury back to travel, but its bright hue will help you to spot it on the carousel from a mile away.
The more casual tailoring of summer often means you can get away without a tie, but on some occasions one is still expected. This slim textured tie is just right for such events and its low price will surely appeal to the infrequent wearer.
An impeccably tailored suit shouldn’t need a belt, but as that’s an ideal out of the reach of most it’s best to err on the side of caution. The lighter colours and fabric weights of summer tailoring or a pair of chinos will look good with this braided leather belt, which is also available in brown.
The dandy is alive and well, and this delicate collar pin is an affordable finishing touch that goes to show you can pay close attention to the details whatever your budget.
Camouflage is a big menswear trend this season, and this envelope-style document wallet is a subtle way to nod to that. Neon touches and clean lines make it modern and masculine.
