Mirrored Sunglasses

Mirrored sunglasses  are back again this year, but expect to see them in a bit more variety. In addition to these bold reflectors are a few styles with a semi-mirrored lens, which are a nice touch for those more subtle gents.  Featured ones below from Illesteva are a perfect example between audacious and classy. Shop for them at Mr porter

Man pouch

Yes, the man pouch. Some might call it a document holder, clutch, or folio. Whatever you want to call them, they will be staying this season. I see too many men walking the streets holding a phone, a wallet, a set of keys, and other daily essentials in their hands. There are some terrific examples seen here below like this excellently crafted leather pouch from Comme des Garçon. C’mon gentlemen, time to let your hands free

The watch is usually considered one of the most essential menswear accessories to date. There is something very elegant about a simple faced watch as its simplistic appearance is rather bold due to the bare watch face. Usually the quiet achiever within the loud watch world it will almost certainly turn heads. Fitted with with a nato strap also makes it the perfect summer accessory.

We saw an abundance of totes at Pitti-Uomo this year, in a range of styles and materials to match. Totes are ideal for carrying those larger items which don’t quite fit in that man pouch of yours.  Stow your day-trip belongs and beachwear to go from street-style to beach-style with effortless confidence this Summer.
