In modern times, the wrist watch has come to be accepted as a symbol of one’s sense of fashion and financial status.
Most people who buy luxury watches are not merely interested in telling time. They are keen to make a statement about their sense of fashion.
Men especially don an expensive watch to show that they have expensive taste. A luxury designer watch on a man’s wrist is the first indication that the man can afford the finer things in life. As such, a luxury watch is one sure way to get a lady to notice you.
For most men, the watch is probably the only jewelry in the attire. It is therefore imperative to don a bold time piece that will make you stand out while at the same time complementing your style. You can find a wide selection of luxury watches on http://www.essential-watches.com/.
Below is a selection of luxury watches that will say volumes about your sense of fashion:
The Timex watch
Timex is a classic watch that says you are cultured. A Timex also shows you are reliable. If you are wearing a Timex, your clothing should be classy, but not fancy. A close alternative to Timex is a Braun watch, especially one fitted with a chronograph.
A Casio says that you lead an active life and you require a reliable and durable watch. It could also say that you are more practical, and fashion is not the first thing on your mind. Your main goal when wearing a Casio will be correctness of time.
On the flipside, a Casio fits well with branded sports gear. If you are at a sports event, wearing a Casio as part of your sports attire will show you have high end taste.
One thing you must never do is pair your Casio with formal attire, even if you don’t care about fashion.
It is a universally known fact that the Rolex is a very expensive watch. Because of this fact, you make a better statement about yourself if you are not showy about it.
Showing off your Rolex states that you lack class. One thing you need to know is that if you are wearing a Rolex, you don’t need to show off to get it noticed. People will just notice.
If you have a quietly-intense personality, the Rolex was made for you. This is because people who exude intensity approach things with an air of nonchalance. Pair your Rolex with a well-cut suit and your look will speak volumes.
An IWC is a classic, but unlike the Timex, it has a rugged appearance about it. It is a great all-purpose watch that goes with all occasions.
If you usually find it difficult to pair watches with clothing, an IWC will make it easy for you and you will end up looking very classy without any effort at all.
Besides your ability to afford one, buying a luxury watch will make a positive fashion statement and portray your personality. A Timex might suit you better than a Rolex. At other times, a Casio might be better suited for the occasion. Try them out and decide which one says what you want to say about yourself.
Like I’ve mentioned so many times before, I’m a total wallet nut and need to replace my favorite accessory at least twice a year. I was recently approved to test out the Bellroy Note Sleeve in Blue Steel and, given my fascination, I grabbed the opportunity (especially since the item sells for a pretty penny pretty much everywhere). Does the price reflect stellar quality?
Needless to say, the bifold Note is very stylish and switched together most elegantly. The material, a vegetable tanned cow leather, is soft and holds onto its contents snugly (like a sleeve!). Speaking of space, even when filled with 10 or so plastic cards, cash, a check, and a few coins – yes, there is a cozy coin pocket in the fold – the wallet never bulked up or got “bumpy”.
When it comes to getting dressed each morning, we get ourselves into a routine that usually consists of rolling out of bed and grabbing the first thing we see. If you happen to be the type who is so laid back that you couldn’t care less about wearing odd socks or a creased shirt, now is the time to reconsider your morning routine.
Now we live in the 21st century, men are becoming more aware of their appearance and self hygiene which is a good step towards greater confidence and luck with the ladies. Comfort is the ultimate factor you must consider in order to assert your confidence. So the question is: do you wear boxers or briefs?
It is no secret that men often find it difficult to get their hands on underwear that is comfortable, durable and not to mention, stylish. While boxer shorts have always seemed like the ‘cooler’ option of underwear for a man to wear, briefs are also battling it out and becoming a popular choice among men of a variety of ages.
In past years, hats for men have provided more of a “purpose” than been used as a clothing accessory. They have had a job to do like keeping the sun out of your eyes, trying to disguise your identity, or combating bed head. In recent years, hats have become more of a fashion accessory than a necessity.
Most of us have heard of them, and many of us poke fun at them: Man bags. The battle of the genders has made it politically correct to define a man as having ‘man bag’, and a woman possessing the time-honoured handbag.
Like a ‘man draw’, a man bag can perhaps be loosely-defined as home to all manner of paraphernalia associated with being a man. It may be like a fascinating junkshop containing abstract possessions: Old bus passes; crushed packets of crisps; electrical devices; magazines; old batteries; dried-up pens and even sweaty gym gear…the list goes on…
Some argue men are less organised at de-cluttering their personal bag then women. Debatable? Meanwhile, others will argue handbags contain more unnecessary bits and bobs. However heated the arguments, how can your beloved bag be de-cluttered?
INFEASIBLE: Gold chains
Gold just don’t work on guys, especially gold necklaces like this one. The only explanation for the infeasibility of gold chains + guy I can offer is this little bit of hand-waving: gold doesn’t complement other colors, it just kind of “sticks out”. We’re big about everything interacting smoothly on the superficial level here at CEFashion, as you should be as well.
Feasible: Necklaces featuring silver, platinum, or white gold
Unlike gold, silver, platinum, etc. (white gold works too, by the way) play nicely with other colors, sheens, surfaces, etc. As for chains versus men’s necklaces, I feel necklaces are key for a more sophisticated yet urban look, while chains make me think of the central New Jersey scene. So I’d go for a necklace like above any day, but to each his own.
