I have noticed a lot of man jewelry being offered lately by upscale designers like David Yurman and John Hardy. I actually like the braided leather bracelets with silver claps. They are offering rings, metal bracelets, and necklaces. Those are a bit much for my style but there must be a big market for it out there if it's being offered. What say you gents? Are you a fan of man jewelry?

Naw. I like cheap surfer necklaces. They say "sexy" whereas the costly stuff says "privileged" -- to me. (If *I* were to wear them.)
well put Will. Cheap surfer neclaces would rock, but really you would have to have the look to go along with it, otherwise it just says trying to be something I am not.
I like jewelry as long as you can tell it is for a man because some just don't. Other than that I find that jewelry gets snagged easily on things. A man I knew lost his finger 'cause his wedding band got snagged on factory equipment so I tend not to wear it to much.
not a friend of man jewlery. I wear a wedding ring. I used to wear a watch, but now have a pocket watch. When I was much younger, I had an earing, but quit wearing that when I grew up. Really don't like anything else.
I wear my wedding band, a watch and a silver Figaro chain (necklace) I bought in 1994 and that's it.
Like you Wesley. "I wear a necklace daily for sentimental reasons, so it is kept under my shirt." with mine as well.
Amen!
I usually wear my wedding ring and a watch. That's it for me.
No cufflinks or tie tacks, gentlemen? Those are pieces few would bat an eye at, and match perfectly with a man's defining sartorial guidelines of style through subtlety and close attention to detail.
When I wear a tie, I use a tie bar. I don't like tie tacks because of placing holes in my ties.
The trick with a tie tack is to insert the tack into the same hole every time you use it. That way there's only one small hole that no one will ever get a good peek at.
I'm anti - tie tack because a good tie is expensive these days. I can't bear to put a hole in one.
