Back by popular request after last Summer’s “How to Wear Man Jewelry” (Part I) post, my favorite jewelry designer Phil Crangi shows us what he’s been rocking this “winter”.
What I love about Philip’s renowned personal style is his ability to wear his clothes with personality. He understands the importance of investing in quality items, but that doesn’t mean they have to look pristine. He is proof that well-made clothing is built to be resilient and looks better over time with a little worn-in character.
Perhaps it comes from his philosophy on jewelry design, as he comments here about his new capsule collection for Giles & Brother:
“What we always try to do at Giles & Brother is to create that iconic piece you have been searching for your whole life and haven’t yet found. This capsule is no different in that we concentrated on creating that one, seemingly elusive, perfect and masculine piece of jewelry that one wears forever.”
Here, he gives us 5 examples of how to pull it off.
1. Workwear to Work
“This is a bit of a work wear look for me. As a matter of fact I wear this to work almost every day.”
“The toughness of this hex nut cuff goes well with this outfit. It’s a really wearable piece”
I’m not a big fan of mens bracelets, mainly because they’ve become a craze and it’s gone too far. I see guys wearing dozens of different wrist wraps in multiple colors and fabrics…it’s too much.
Philip does it right. He keeps it simple, with the focus on one awesome piece (that happens to be a perfect match for his wicked vintage Barbour).
