Building a stylish wardrobe is something that takes time. It’s built piece by piece. While trends come and go, there are some accessories for men that simply never go out of style and always look good and fresh for years to come. True classics always make you look right now and never make you look dated. Here are six that are an essential part of every stylish man’s wardrobe. While most of these are on the pricier side, it’s fair to say they are all worth every penny.
1. The Hèrmes “H” Belt
Hèrmes makes some of the most stylish leather goods available and their signature “H” belt buckle paired with one of their beautiful belts is no exception. Yes, it is most certainly an investment, but once you buy the H buckle, which is available in a variety of finishes, metals, and colors, you can buy additional leather belts to put it on. Pair the H Belt with a suit or even jeans to add sophistication to any look.
2. Burberry Heritage Check Scarf
If you only ever buy one scarf in your life, buy one from Burberry. Its Heritage Check Scarf can be seen on the necks of the best-dressed men in every city. Made from luxurious Scottish cashmere, it’s guaranteed to keep you warm and toasty even on the frostiest days. To make it your own, Burberry can monogram it for you.
3. Ray-Ban Aviator Sunglasses
Designed for actual aviators (you know, those guys flying planes in 1937), Ray-Ban’s Aviator sunglasses have stayed on fleek ever since. The epitome of cool and masculine, aviators are universally flattering for all face shapes. Ray-Ban takes an old school trend all the way to today by allowing you to customize your own pair. From frame color (gold, silver, black, etc) to lens type (flash, polarized, gradient and even mirrored lenses) to color (green, pink, purple, the choices are endless) and even down to the temple tips (they clearly thought of everything), you can really create the perfect pair of sunglasses.
4. Louis Vuitton Keepall Bag
Louis Vuitton makes some of the most attractive luggage and accessories available. Their Keepall bag is a classic weekender bag. This style is available in a variety of materials from the signature logo canvas to blue and red leather options. You can even add stripes or a monogram to make it a true one-of-a-kind piece. Bring it on an airplane or take it in the car, this bag will most definitely make a statement about you and your style.
5. Tod’s Gommino Driving Shoes
You don’t need to be behind the wheel to wear driving shoes. They are perfect for those occasions that are somewhere between casual and formal. For example, Casual Friday at the office or a wedding that isn’t black tie or cocktail attire. There is something incredibly luxurious about driving shoes in general and there is no more iconic pair than Tod’s Gommino line. Available in colors ranging from tan suede to blue nubuck and two-toned leather, there are so many great choices, you might have to start a collection because you won’t be able to choose just one.
6. A Good Set of Cufflinks
Nothing screams well dressed quite the way cufflinks do. Every man should own a good set or two or three to complete the look of a French cuff shirt. Cufflinks are also a fun but subtle way to show who you really are (especially if you work in a rather buttoned up office) whether you are into dogs, dice, or even skulls. Available at many price points, cufflinks are something every man can and should treat himself to.
