Every woman knows that you can’t be fully dressed without the finishing touch of distinctive accessories. The same holds true for the well-dressed man. Just as power ties express confidence, a pair of conversation-starting cuff links, an eye-catching watch, or supple and stylish leather goods can convey your understanding that details really do make the difference. Now that dressing up is back in style, French-cuff shirts and retro tailored suits merely serve as the foundations of an elegant man’s wardrobe, while accessories provide a little architectural detail to distinguish you from rest of the crowd.
