Yes! Can we start with any other accessory but a leather jacket? Every guy has at least one leather jacket in their closet. Those who don’t… well, they don’t know what they are missing out on.
A leather jacket is an all-season staple. The best thing about leather jackets is their versatility. You can wear one in summer or winter or fall.
Literally, there is a jacket for every occasion. A field or biker jacket for your adventure trips, a leather blazer for your business-casual outfit, a faux or a suede jacket for your casual meetups/ dinner, or a bomber jacket for your first date – a leather jacket saves the day for you every time.
Another essential leather accessory that requires no mentioning is a leather wallet. A sleek wallet is a man’s statement about his personality and his desire to be organized.
When it comes to a leather wallet for men, there are so many options to choose from. Each wallet can become a reflection of your personality and an insight into your traits.
There are bi-fold wallets and trifold wallets for those who want to carry minimal stuff, Men’s Checkbook Wallets for businesspeople, Slim ID Wallets and Credit Card Wallets for nothing but a few cards and your id, Travel Wallets for wanderlusts, Long Wallets and Breast Wallets for more space and bigger size.
Then there is the choice in terms of style, like Top Grain Leather Wallets, Full Grain Leather Wallets, Napa Leather Wallets, Exotic Skin Leather Wallets, Man-Made Leather, and Suede Wallets.
Each make and size represents a different kind of man, and each adds a different spark to a man’s attire. That’s why wallets are one of the most important leather accessories for men.
Going to work, a meeting, or to university or a high school, leather bags take care of all your needs while maintaining your grace and style.
Leather backpacks are a sight to behold with their soft feels and shiny texture, and they also offer durability along with a lot of space for your personal items.
A leather crossbody or messenger bag helps you keeps just the most important stuff while slinging the bag across your body – like some movie star.
Then there are leather conference folders, perfect for your basic meeting needs. You can carry them to an important board meeting or to a research conference abroad, and they will walk along in your hand with much style and poise.
Another leather accessory that has our hearts as men are leather belts. Guys know there is a feeling of strange – but reassuring – confidence to feel a belt tied to your waist.
We all must have more than one leather belt, and they could be made of different materials. But the feel of a leather belt is unmatched. You only need a belt in two colors – black and brown – and they will uplift every ‘fit of yours from casual business suits to a basic jeans t-shirt attire.
It was a bit of a novel accessory in today’s fashion, but leather suspenders did see their heydays when used to improve the look and enhance the feel of an outfit.
Men, young and old alike, left their style statement dangling by these leather suspenders, and they never disappointed. They kept the pants firmly in place and added to the style with their distinct quality and unique purpose.
Suspenders haven’t run out of fashion even today, and having a pair in your wardrobe to wear occasionally is not going to make you look outdated.
Classic Leather Watch
Yes, I purposefully let the best for the last.
Do I even need to write about why men should wear watches? Other than keeping them on time, these tiny pieces around the wrists are a style statement, unlike anything else.
If you are not in the mood to accessorize your outfit, just throw in a sleek leather watch to match your outfit. Believe me, it will make up for every missing accessory.
These leather watches come in different styles too. Would you like a watch with a suede leather strip or a shiny one? A jet-black leather strap to go with your olive-green suit or a mate-brown one for your grey three-piece? Make your choice and slay for the rest of the day.
Here is a sure-shot way to make a great first impression at your job interview; carry a sleek portfolio folder. A spotless portfolio folder in your hand tells your employer that you’re a man of taste who also likes to be organized.
These folders can carry your essential documents, along with your cellphone, and even have space for a two-fold wallet. They are an accessory that also offers great utility.
These were some staple leather accessories. There are others, like a leather briefcase, leather card case, leather bookmarks, leather passport cover, leather laptop bags, etc.
If you’re ever confused about your wardrobe choice and feel like something is missing, just throw in a leather accessory to complete your looks.
Leather accessories always have your back like a good pal. They double-up on your style, boost your personality and refine your style. All in all, they can be relied upon whenever you need them.
