Racks and racks of vintage suits, sportcoats, shirts, and ties from the 1900s all the way to the 1960’s; that’s what awaits you at Benny Reese’s house.
It seems like girls have all the fun when it comes to accessorizing. They get necklaces, earrings, piercings, belts, and bracelets. Most guys are still under the impression that you don’t get to add personality when you get to dress up. However, I’m here to tell you that this mindset is wrong. Menswear has a few functional accessories that are definitely able to be used to step up your suit game. In this article, we’re going to look at some of my picks as my favourite types of menswear accessories.
Suits have a bad rap. Menswear bloggers today are dedicated to making suits and formal wear look as casual as possible. For example, Dan Trepanier has an article on wearing Henley’s with your suit and HVRMINN wears Nike’s with his sharp DB’s. It seems that the suit (and its traditional accoutrements) has not shaken its pariah status among the masses. Don’t get me wrong; I’m all about dressing down a suit, but I’m still a standing fan of the classic suit worn. To my knowledge, there’s only a few men that can make wearing a suit look natural and easy, and I have the pleasure of featuring one of those masters. I present Chad Park from B&Tailor.
