How Accessories Make a Difference

Style icons were often known for one or two distinguishing details. It’s funny, but the smallest items often pack the biggest personality punch. Put 10 stylish guys in the same simple gray suit and they’ll all manage to make it different. And often the way they do it is with accessories.

Perhaps because these items are small (a fountain pen worn in the breast pocket), sentimental (a watch that belonged to your grandfather), or transforming (a killer pair of sunglasses), accessories are often the most cherished things we wear.

The best dressed men know that style comes down to details, and they relish choosing the little things that mean a lot. Here are some of our favorites:

Cufflinks: When it comes to square footage, cufflinks are about as small as they come. But they can be very revealing about a man’s taste and personality. We have T/K styles with which you express yourself.

Pocket Squares: A must-have finishing touch to look your best. Complementing, rather than matching, your necktie is the best approach.

Braces: If colorful expression through a necktie and pocket square still isn’t enough, consider some silk suspenders (or braces, as they’re more properly called). We’ve got them in every color you could want.

Socks: Nothing throws a curve ball at people like wearing a conservative suit and tie but bold socks. We’ve got everything from argyles to polka dots, diamonds to checks. Two of our new favorites are a selection of black and white designs in fine cotton, and a beautiful batch of cable-knits in bright pastels.

Glasses: Because they’re worn on the face, few things can transform your look like glasses. From classic to modern, our readers (and sunglass readers) help you present yourself any way you like.
