Looking for some final touches to complete your gentleman look? Perhaps you’re on the hunt for some great gift ideas for the gentleman in your life.
When it comes to accessories, getting the right ones befitting for a gentleman is very important – the last thing that you want is a tacky accessory that makes him stand out like a sore thumb (for all the wrong reasons). Good accessories are essentially what makes a gentleman a gentleman, apart from his impeccable manners, of course! If you are looking for the perfect gifts to buy your suave man (or you’re a gentleman looking for accessory ideas) then here are the things you need in your life.
A Pocket Square
Pocket squares never go out of style and are an underrated accessory in today’s fashion world. A sophisticated pocket square is like the icing on the cake; it just polishes off a fantastic, well-fitting suit. For some examples of trendy pocket squares, check out a sophisticated menswear website like Politix. If you’re buying the pocket square as a gift, try and match it to some of the colours of the tie the gentlemen already has – they must match!
A Simple, Suave Watch
Nothing says “gentleman” like a nice watch. Even if your gentleman doesn’t intend to tell the time, the watch will still look suave and sophisticated sitting on his wrist. When it comes to choosing the right watch, think dark colours and a leather band with a small clock face. Try to stay away from bright, chunky watches – it’ll be hard to find other gentlemanly means of attire that could match such a bright statement.
A Bright Bowtie
Who says neckwear is restricted to long ties? Bowties are another timeless piece that are a great present for the everyday gentlemen. The great thing about the bowtie is that it matches basically any suit and can also be worn with normal slacks and a white shirt if your gentleman likes to dress up his quirky, casual day look.
So this isn’t so much an accessory that you see as much as you smell, but it’s still necessary for any gentleman to keep up appearances. You can’t be a gentleman without smelling like one. Therefore, if you’re looking for a gift idea, a good quality, sophisticated cologne is a great choice. You can buy a scent tailored to the “gentlemanly” smell or perhaps a few different small collections so they can mix and match.
When it comes to putting the finishing touches on the perfect gentleman’s outfit, it really is the accessories that make all the difference. A sophisticated range of accessories will complement their outfit and finish the look.
If you’re still in doubt about the right accessories for the gentleman look, you can always look through photos of the world’s greatest (Frank Sinatra is a great example) for some inspiration and advice!
