How to wear broad metal bands

Metal bends are probably one of the most popular men bracelets and they are a perfect match for suits and ties. They may come in variety of flavors and styles, but the overall effect stays the same: a simple and solid bold statement on your wrist.

However, make sure to keep your sleeves short or roll up your shirt sleeves and voila! Also, remember to steer clear of too flashy metal bands, you can stick to two colors of metal without any gemstones in them. And don’t pair them with watches - it’s an either/or choice.

How to wear ID bracelets

ID bracelets have that classic heritage, since they were issued by soldiers in WWII. Most guys prefer such bracelets, because they give them that army look. They have a thin metal chain and a simple rectangular plate centered on the top of the wrist. These bracelets give you the retro look, most guys wish to have, and you can wear them to casual clothes, like fitted jeans and white T-shirts - the classic postwar American look.

How to wear leather cuffs

If you wish to have that classic punk style, then you should learn how to wear a bracelet made of black leather.
