If you are a traditionalist, you might still believe that men shouldn’t wear any jewelry. Well, apart from a watch and a wedding band of course. However, it is probably time for all traditionalists to expand their horizons. Believe it or not, you can wear a bit of jewelry without looking like you are just leaving a yoga retreat. And, the best way for you to start is buying a bracelet. After all, bracelets are the most subtle pieces of jewelry a man can wear.
Of course, the main thing you should bear in mind in regard to wearing a bracelet would be to make sure it goes well with your usual attire. So, if you like to dress elegantly, go for simple golden bracelets. If you are preppy, a nautical bracelet will do well. And, if you like rock ‘n’ roll, go with metal.
The reaction of people who see you should be “that looks stylish.” You are not going for “he probably works in a coffee place.” So, we have gathered up some of the best bracelets you can buy to enhance your style.
Maritime Supply Company – Captain’s Link
This South Carolina company focuses on creating high-quality nautical accessories that are also affordable. And, with this bracelet, they did just that.

So, if you are trying to impress your girlfriend’s father at the Yacht club, this could be a good conversation piece.
Shinola – Double Wrap
While Shinola is famous for making their watches, they have other things to offer too. Coming from Detroit, this company has recently revamped their brand and it now offers incredible leather goods. And, their Double Wrap leather bracelet is the perfect example of that. It features Horween leather and a durable brass buckle.
Miansai – Rope Anchor
Ever since 2008, this Miami-based company has been dominating men’s fashion with their rope bracelets. This specific bracelet really draws on that famous preppy style. The combination of the bright green rope and the silver hook as a closure system is incredible.

If you are looking for a bit of a whimsical flair with a serious undertone, this bracelet is for you.

George Frost – Cobra Leather
When he was making this bracelet, designer George Frost was drawing the inspiration from the Victorian ages. To be more precise, the inspiration comes from the Victorian mourning jewelry.
