If you are foregoing a tie during these business casual days, it doesn’t mean that you can’t show a little personality in your clothing. Don’t skimp on accessories. Scarves, pocket squares, gloves, briefcases, good luggage, a sleek wallet, simple watch, perfectly suited glasses, the latest tech, a good pen, and an exotic belt can all lend a very discreet level of sophistication and elegance to any business man’s wardrobe.
Just a few suggestions that rely more on the style of things rather than the brand. I certainly can’t afford an IWC watch, for example, but I admire their reserve — simple, very elegant. Feel free to add any accessoriesyou find that are elegant, sleek and perfect for the 21st Century Man.
(N.B. It occurs to me that I tend to match my accessories. All black, all tan, etc. . And I probably do that based on my shoes/outerwear. I find that one “colour-story” is sort of like the dark suit, white shirt rule. Never fail.)
