This Guy Looks Great…with Only One Bracelet!, Florence

Ok guys, I think we’ve gotten a little carried away with the arm-full-of-bracelets trend.  If one is good, seven is not seven times better.

    So true. And can I also just say that I am loving his shoes and those matching taupe socks? I never would have thought matching taupe socks to your shoes would be cool, but there you have it.

    I like this look, but I am not a fan of the socks. Maybe something with a bit of contrast would have been nice.

    love his shoes!!!

    Less is more.You can see, show and enjoy better a bracelet than a lot.Many bracelets can be nice but it creats confusion .

    Finally someone that said it! That “armcandy” trend was the less elegant thing I’ve ever seen!

    he looks so chic!

    and the bracelet..yeah!

    I must say, I quite like the layered bracelet look. Some men can carry it off better than others though. I agree the man above looks good with just one!

    im in love with his style…

    The “lots of little fabric and rubber bracelets” look is not something I see much on men on the street, here in South Africa. It has often intrigued me, looking at your photographs. Is it a way of mediating the Western/European men’s traditional dress code, introducing something a bit more hippyish and “tribal”? The costume history and context here is just different, I guess, partly since bead and metal bracelets are often part of strictly traditional costumes.

    This guy looks great because of beautiful colours combination: I love those tones of beige and blue.

    Yes! one bracelet for a man is beautiful! I’m trying to make some for my men customers, they just ask for “men jewels”!

    • Sister of M

      March 12, 2013 at 8:55 am

      AAA! They ask for “men jewels”????? Thats rather X rated..! I hope you know that “men jewels” are a word for…well their..ahem…jewels… X)))

    Love this picture, so laid back and just uber cool. I also hate when people pile the bracelets on …… more is less!

    He’s so elegant. I particularly like the socks and the shoes. Men should take notes.

    Love the details of the green bracelet, and of the beige socks in the beige shoes!

    He looks fantastic rugged yet refine. Not ony do I appreciate his minimalist style as he rocks one bracelet but the fact that he is NOT wearing white socks. This man knows style.


    • Daniel

      March 12, 2013 at 10:43 am

      I live in Italy, and I can tell you that I have never ever seen a man wearing white socks here, except for the joggers.

  38. Simbarashe

    March 12, 2013 at 7:23 am

    I typically wear one bracelet next to my watch.
    Everyone always asks why I wear two watches.

  39. VBLGSD

    March 12, 2013 at 7:45 am

    I was just talking to someone yesterday about how I only wear two bracelets (both leather) and shall never wear more than two.

    I like the contrast of that, but definitely think that too many bracelets is … well … too many.

    i really don’t like junk jewelry on men

  41. lpv

    March 12, 2013 at 7:53 am

    hmmm… somehow I would forgive him if he added another bracelet.

    do like the whole look.

    • debbie

      March 12, 2013 at 9:00 am

      Yes, lpv, he could be forgiven for several fashion faux pas in my book.

  42. Sevan

    The socks and shoes are a great choice to complement the tobacco colored jacket over different shades of blue.
    As for one or multi bracelets, the layered ones are great on a rugged looking man, the “I just came back from a National Geographic assignment” looking man.

    sure one is good but if you have a child that has made you friendship bracelets/ you wear them…if you have been given a protection cord you wear them /if something is lucky you wear it… if a color inspires you ,calms you down … you wear it if they are all on your wrist who cares love ,devotion and loyalty come first always

    I love this shot. I love what the guy is wearing – a real study in blue and tan …. but I also love the combined textures of the backdrop – the brick vs. the stone/concrete divider he’s sitting on. This almost looks like a posed shot for an ad campaign in how all the colours – outfit and environment – tie in together.

    I do tend to hone in on strictly the fashion, but I DO study the composition of the shot and I’m negligent in mentioning it. My apologies for that!


  46. Jeanette

    Lovely! And Yes! One bracelet is enough!

  47. Sarah

    His subtle pop of color bracelet is speaking such rebellion against trends, but still honoring that they exist. Genius!

  52. kev

    March 12, 2013 at 12:25 pm

    The only jewelry a man should wear (and this is the old school of thought) is a watch and a wedding band. But even the uber stylish Italian men are doing the bracelets. New school?

    i’m laughing so hard about the bracelet comment, so true though!

    Hope Rubinacci doesn’t see this post!

    Has photo been flopped? Or does this guy wear his watch on right arm. (Even left-handed people rarely do that.)

    Never understood the bracelet issue, a gent should have only two pieces of jewellery a watch and a wedding ring if married. Keep it simple and understated.

    Simple, stylish, sophisticated. Confident and secure to wear–heaven forbid–one bracelet…sarcastic but true. Over adornment of bracelets is perhaps a sign of insecurity?

  69. Lolo

    March 12, 2013 at 10:45 pm

    I see 2 bracelets on that wrist.

  70. Jack

    March 13, 2013 at 3:02 am

    Honestly, I’d rather see zero bracelets.

    • lauren

      i agree. how about no bracelet.

    March 13, 2013 at 3:28 am

    I am so relieved that someone is finally speaking up against this bracelet mania. Personally, I think a nice watch is all a man needs around his wrists…

    I’m a watch and 1 bracelet type of person. Less is more I believe.

    This is actually two bracelets! The green band and underneath a leather beaded cord.

    OMG, exactly! Hate the arm swag thing going on; I actually prefer not wearing accessories at all. Simpler and classier.

    Shoes and socks a little too matchy matchy…

    All week I’ve been thinking of this guy and his shoes. And his coat. And those damn socks. I just keep coming back to this picture.

    What a dapper dude.

  82. Mike

    March 14, 2013 at 5:55 pm

    I agree with those that say his socks and shoes are ‘too matchy’ – more contrast needed there. Also think a Derby style shoe would have suited the casual look better. However, he helps prove my personal conviction that you can appear well dressed in jeans. Not sure about the bracelet thing – probably better with none?

  83. hugh

    March 14, 2013 at 8:28 pm

    It’s the watch – not the band …

    Once a month I think I write this, but, I still have to say it : your “men shots” are always so interesting. As a feminist I don’t like how it will maybe sound, but women have to learn from men when it comes to not doing too much, to have a more natural approach to fashion, less intense, less effort, less superficiality…
