Time to upgrade your accessories beyond plain old silver. When I first started using tie clips and French cuffs, I only considered silver. Silver was all I saw being wore on mainstream TV and was a safe bet. As I experimented more with accessories and colors, I learned to appreciate the other metals. Gold is great and looks sophisticated with almost anything. What I am wearing in the above photo is "rose gold" or gold with a tint of pink. I encourage you to experiment with either shade of gold as both look sharp as accessories and add a new dimension to your outfit. Notice every metallic accessory in the photo is the same as it's key not to mix and match metals. Pick one or risk looking very clueless with you accessory game.
This pocket square and lapel pin are part of my first line of men's accessories available on Indiegogo. It's a cultural piece that contains illustration of ancient Japanese temples. This design takes me back to the days when I lived in Japan where I was inspired to express myself through fashion. The crowd funding campaign has launched and we are offering a wide range of striking suit accessories for men who dares to make a statement. The pocket squares are handcrafted in North America and only a limited quantity is produced.
Please support the movement and visit the Indiegogo campaign.
