For most guys, the personal jewelry collection is limited to a few watches and… well that’s it. (MAYBE that skull and crossbones necklace that you got a few years back when you were rocking Ed Hardy. -> Please say “no”). Men have embraced other means to wear jewelry and still be masculine and show-off individual style. Welcome to the new bracelet. Although not so “new” now, the bracelet is a huge hit for many guys who want to give a little “oomph” to their personal style.
Available through a variety of designers (some of my favorites are the ones by Burkman Bros, who Kanye West unashamedly sported at Coachella this year), the wrist-piece is usually made from hemp, yarn, leather, and rope.
My absolute favorite, and probably a little more “dressy”, is this black onyx David Yurman bracelet (drools).
I like how you can sport these with jeans and a tee, or even a suit to show some individuality and non-comformist defiance.
Check out this NYtimes article highlighting the trend. Oh, and notice how we used “wrist-piece”, instead of jewelry. If your manhood is compromised, you’ll gain it back this way.
