No decent outfit is complete without accessories. They’re like béarnaise sauce to steaks, butter to bread, and milk to cereal. You get the idea.
But most of the times, it can be a difficult task to know how good an investment on any of these stylistic items might turn out to be. Fortunately, history has taken some of the trial and error out of the process. If it looked good 50 years ago and it still look good now, chances are it will look good another 50 years.
With that being said, these are the men’s accessories that will never go out of style.
- Classis Sunglasses
A pair of sunglasses can do a man a few favours. Flattering, practical, and a good item to hide those unwanted dark circles when needed. Glasses reminds us to the image of golden-age movie stars such as Steve McQueen.
No lies that the most popular styles have changed little over the decades. Aviators, Wayfarers, and Clubmasters are an all time-honoured staple that suit different face shapes meanwhile twists on these stalwarts are more than welcome, the overwhelming sentiment is that if it’s not broken the don’t touch it.
A decent pair of sunglasses will most probably stick around for life (if you take good care of it) so don’t be afraid to make a little investment on one.
- Leather Billfold Wallet
Practical and moulded to the contours of its contents and aged to perfection over time, a leather wallet is the accessory that will do the business long even after the business has stopped accepting cash.
And for that reason that many men choose to have their note carriers embossed with their names or initials on. A move that sets out intentions to keep it for life, even if the content doesn’t make it to the end of the month.
- Stainless Steel Watch
This stainless timepiece has the ability to not only last one lifetime but several generations if handed down through a successive generations.
The kind of material that has its roots in making gun is as flattering as it is durable. Suits equally at home with a suit and tie as it is with a T-shirt and jeans combination.
- Baseball Cap
I don’t think that there are any other items that loudly screams ‘man at leisure’ better than a baseball cap. Hold your horses, we’re not talking about the flat-peaked, oversized, gold-studded sort but the soft, round-brimmed, sporty staples that have invaded even the most conservative wardrobes in recent years.
The details here are up to the individual wearer though. Bright colours – especially the sun faded one- can look just as good and pleasing as the muted tones. A bit of subtle embroidery on it or branding can be just as winning as a pared-back, no-logo design.
