Shopping is hardly a man’s hobby and unless they have people pressuring them to get certain essential accessories, they tend to acquire accessories in a rather haphazard way or only in emergencies. Accessorizing, and doing it correctly, is not a luxury – it is an essential part of a man’s dressing that easily and quickly tells the world how well-groomed you are.
If you have been going about your daily businesses without a handkerchief in the pocket, it is time you changed this permanently. A handkerchief is an essential (and sometimes critical) accessory that could save you lots of embarrassment. An unexpected cold attack could make your nose suddenly run – there is nothing that could save you from agony if this happened in public. A gentleman always has a clean white handkerchief in his pocket.
Watches have always been associated with gentlemen but the arrival of countless digital devices has discouraged some men from wearing watches. Even if you can tell the time from one of those devices, a watch is still essential. A good watch compliments the rest of your clothing (while a bad watch does the exact opposite) and the choice of a watch has to be done with careful consideration.
A gentleman also needs to invest in a number of plain T-shirts, sweatshirts and jeans. Regardless of where you work, there are times when you’ll need to don casual wear and T-shirts and jeans are the best casual wear you can get. The ideal T-shirt or sweatshirt should come in solid colors and must be plain. T-shirts with the names of celebs, clothes manufacturers or carrying jokes that people will need to stop and read are best left to the younger generation. The jeans too should be solid (free of rips) and ideally in a dark color.
An umbrella that is strong enough to withstand a heavy downpour and preferably black is an essential accessory for every gentleman. Carrying such an umbrella when going outdoors actually complements the rest of your clothing and could save you the agony of appearing at friend’s house (or even entering a bus) when you are already soaked through.
With so many online shopping options available today, no man has any excuse for not equipping his wardrobe with essential accessories. When not sure what accessory should be worn with what, there is also plenty of advice available online.
