is a human need. I don’t see anything superficial about it unless your life becomes very materialistic. –David LaChapelle
During your journey in creating your own style, certain accessories bring another dimension to the potential look you desire. Over the last few years, tasteful jewellery pieces have quietly made their way back onto men. Bracelets or as a friend of mine called them, mancelets are another item that can make or break your outfit. There is an endless variety to choose from. And this is
wear where the fun begins. Donning one in conjunction with a watch, it can add a little bit of gochujang to your ensemble. Wearing too many, as one can find throughout the world wide web, well, let me state it may work for some but I would err on the side of caution. I am prejudiced in my tastes and by no means want the reader to embrace my standard as their own. Guinea pig yourself! Experiment. Ask questions. Observe reactions and find what suits you the best! My standard fair is a watch and beaded bracelet on the left wrist. A Tibetan silver Buddhist cuff and a beaded or leather bracelet on the right wrist. Other times, same as the latter and I’ll leave the watch solo. With bracelets, it is another outlet for your personality to shine. I am Buddhist so I have a few pieces with Buddha incorporated into the bead-work. Now, there are high-end designers of bracelets but as the name of the blog states, you’re Poor, Broke And Handsome not, Rich, Prosperous And Handsome.
In the picture to the left, I have fish-hook (not a makau) bracelets also known as nautical bracelets that were purchased through Ebay for under $5 each. Miansai makes beautiful bracelets but you won’t find a bracelet under $68. Title Of Work is another high end maker of bracelets. Browse harujongil, day-dream then smile. If you desire a brand name, take a gander around Asos. They sell bracelets too at a much lower price point than the aforementioned but I still suggest Ebay. And if you’re feeling artistic, why not make your own? All of the bracelets in the featured picture were purchased through Ebay except for zodiac sign of Scorpio bracelet. This was gifted to me by my beautiful girlfriend. ❤️
A recommendation I will pass along is wearing a certain style of bracelet according to season. Exempli gratia, nautical theme bracelets for the late Spring throughout the Summer. Of course, you may want that Spring/Summer feeling all year long. The choice is yours! Do allow your personality to shine through this outlet. And yes, do keep in mind the color palette of your clothes but you can be much, much looser in this respect. Remember, experiment to find, so ultimately the panache you exhibit turns every head in the room! Until next time, Jal ga!
