10. Accessorize, but do not bling
Accessories are one of those areas where guys should defer to their comfort zones. From chain wallets to nose piercings to fistfuls of rings, accessories are deeply personal and generally best used when you’re already comfortable wearing them. But in the context of dressing timelessly, jewelry for guys is a lot like plaid: Use it sparingly.
And by the way, jewelry fits within the larger context of accessories: loud socks with a quiet suit; your Uncle Louie’s goofy gold tie bar from the Elks Lodge; wild-patterned ties; pocket squares.
Whenever accessorizing, follow this rule of thumb from Fenton: add a hint of complexity, but not too much. When in doubt, essentials will always be timeless.
