Closetgram: My Bracelets

I've always been a huge accessories fan: Men sometimes forget that adding a few pieces of jewelry to your outfit can make everything come together in a great way. Bracelet stacking is nothing new in menswear, and guys love to layer on a few cool straps or beads to make a naked wrist a bit more hip.

I'm currently obsessing over having a huge hunk of metal on my wrist. Throwing the rules of mixing silver and gold out the window, lately I've been putting on all my fancy jewels at the same time. I've collected them from various places, and don't always wear them together, but when I do, I always feel super luxe!

The bracelets include one that I made (the copper one), a Giles & Brother railroad spike, a Miansai screw cuff bracelet, a vintage ID bracelet, and a hammered nail. I'm never too precious with anything --including jewelry-- because the more it's worn in, the better. So stack it on, and don't be afraid of a little glittery gold.
