JKISSI : This post is probably one of the most anticipated post concerning accessories, especially the ones I and Trav wear. The topic of accessories are so broad that we decided to fraction this topic up largely focusing on wrist ornaments in this volume. It never occurred to me how needed accessories are, until recently I found myself stumbling all over my room looking for specific beads that I own. We are all aware about how accessories can appear so in dept when it comes to our female counterparts. When it comes to males it seems the term “accessories” gets thrown around much more lightly , maybe because people feel it holds some sort of femininity. I feel like the majority of guys need to dapple around with accessories , and I’m not talking about the “live-strong” bands even though those are alright. Just the addition of simple beads depending on the coloring can make a big difference in your own outfit. In terms of variety there is a vast amount of hand accessories for men if you are looking for some to wear. We receive constant emails daily about the accessories we wear showing that people are interested, but are just unaware as where to purchase them.

We featured some of our friends in NYC to participate on this post to display how accessories are suppose to be worn. We want to thank everyone who took part in this post.
My good friend and fellow Bronx resident photographer Kadeem J. probably had the most interesting introspective when talking about his own accessories. You may look at all of the ornaments on his hand and think it’s just full of random stuff, but each seemed to have its own sort of meaning. He explained to me further on how some of them were given to him by good friends , and others made by himself from old leather shoe laces which I thought that was very creative.
The cool Sham of Lateboots took part in the accessories post without even being notified in advance. Very nice ensemble here with a nice touch by including the scarf. This shows that just a simple nice watch can go a long way
Bevin from The Brooklyn Circus made an appearance for the accessories post. I would call him one of the best at using his visual skills to bring forth some new ways to wear various accessories. He told us where each ornament was by and from, it was real interesting to know the actual brands of each of them. I must say the silk scarf used as a hand accessory was a very good idea, I would’ve never thought of it to be honest.
The wrist accessories I and Trav are wearing are pictured above from these great companies. I ultimately chose the tan double strap bracelet because if you wear it enough the color begins to wear in giving it a beautiful color at the end. The Billy Kirk bracelet looks even better in person than it looks above especially the burgundy color that Trav has with gold brass braces. To purchase them click on the links below. The wooden beads we always wear are from Topman.
