I have a ruby this size and shape, looking for a mounting.  I am considering a silver cage.  And it'll probably look better than that.

 

It's clever.  And, if your lady is really interested in Mars it's a neat bauble.  But, it's not stunningly attractive.

Too feminine for a man to wear, is my original question?

Not feminine at all.

As a history geek, I'll say it's worth knowing that Mars was seen as a symbol of strength and virility. Pretty damn manly.

Well how about with a new chain?  Say a big manly one, or a ball chain (as in like dogtags)?

It's an question of proportions.  A heavier chain, especially a ball chain, might just be a very good choice for you.

If you really like the Mars bead, it might be more masculine looking (and cheaper) to put it on a shorter leather or rubber strand, instead of a long and dangling chain..

Dallas, you're a funny man!

Hey Beo,

Great topic question to ask the guys here.

Hate to say it, but is does look feminine to me personally.

Also, a ball hanging from a necklace will swing, and you can potentially hit yourself in the mouth when involved in activities...possibly chipping a tooth.

I am an RN - wore a Littman stethoscope around my neck for 20 years.  I cannot tell you how many times I inadvertantly hit myself in the mouth or teeth.  Makes me leary to see this type of necklace.

Additionally, if you watch any C&W videos, you will see the stylists dressing these male C&W artists in deep V-neck T-shirts with tons of necklaces.  Everytime I see these guys dressed like this wearing all that neck jewelry, it kind of turns my stomach....and does not look very masculine to me personally...but then, I do not care for tatoos either, and may possibly be 'dating' myself.

If you are going to wear a necklace, wear a heavy chain style.  Masculine - and always contemporary.  Good luck!

Not that I know much about what is manly, but where I come from men don't wear visible necklaces, period.

Really?  Didn't you say you're from Jersey?

Ha ha!
I live in western Jersey, thank god.
None of that here.

Vintage Suits

I just figured we needed a thread to discuss how awesome vintage suits are.I just got lucky the other day and ordered a vintage 1950's suit from Hallaballoo... I mean Ballyhoo. It fits me perfectly, as if it was tailored for me. I plan to get the sleeves slightly adjusted when I have time to take it to a tailor, but other than that it fits perfectly. I plan to wear it with a black fedora that I have, and obviously with a dress shirt and a tie.…See More
