Dressiquette – Match metal. With metal.

written by admin May 15, 2014

Metal-with-metalmatchIve been seeing a lot of guys breaking this rule, and although it’s a fairly simple one, it can be difficult to get right if your wardrobe doesnt allow it.

As with most menswear rules, it’s a little obvious and as I said, fairly simple, whenever you’re wearing metal (anything) make sure that it is of the same colour or kind.

I get that most things come in silver and so this is pretty easy with watches, tie clips and belt buckles. But then of course you need to try and deal with fashionable elements like the current rose gold / brass trend, it’s gonna be pretty tricky to match everything in these occasions, that’s when I would suggest taking a different colour completely, and rather match the colour to something in your outfit like a coloured tie clip or a matt black belt buckle.

Sound simple enough? That’s because it really kinda is.

Here’s a closer look at the details.

Just like you should always match your belt to your shoes, leather and leather should also be matched, so when you find yourself wearing a brown leather belt, make sure your watch strap compliments it just so.

If you like any of the above, you can find them here:
