Just as manners maketh the man, accessories maketh the fit. The overall effect of your accessories — if picked right — is so much greater than the sum of its parts. What we’re saying is that no matter how small the accessories may be in relation to your big coat or new pants, they end up being the defining factors of your look.

That can be a positive thing or a negative thing. Nobody likes putting together a masterpiece outfit only to have it felled by a bad pair of sunglasses or an ugly watch.

That’s why we’re big advocates for investment accessories. Investing in your accessories means that you make the right decision once and it pays off for the rest of your life. Ignore passing trends, they’ll trick you into ruining outfits and you’ll only realize it in years to come. Stick to the classics.

Below, we’ve rounded up 10 investment accessories from MR PORTER ranging from luxury watches to sunglasses, bets, and jewelry. Each of our selections transcends trends to be a lifelong partner instead. Buy better, buy once.
