You can tell a lot about a man by the way he wears his jewelry. However, the vast and wonderful world of men’s jewelry can be confusing, downright terrifying and riddled with sartorial pitfalls. That’s why most of our jewelry game oscillates between the minimalist path of open flies and BBQ sauce stains, and the maximalist path of diamond-encrusted grills and big-ass dookie chains. Yes, even here at Highsnobiety we tend to neglect this highly-delicate topic way too often. That’s why we rounded up the most basic piece of jewelry a man could possibly wear for our latest Buyer’s Guide. Check out our selection of leather bracelets after the jump.
