Ultimate Guide to Men's Bracelets

Bracelets for men are a growing fashion trend.

The style of bracelets has changed over the years. The chunky metal bracelets from years ago have not developed into stylish, fashionable bracelets of many different types and styles.

Men's bracelets these days range from leather bands to braided cord, from wooden beads to metallic cuffs. They have become quite the fashion accessory for men all across the world.

A man's bracelet must be stylish and masculine, made from different materials and give you a variety of colours to allow you to mix-and-match for a stylish stacked effect.

Here is our guide to the best men's bracelets:

METAL CHAINS & CUFFS

For men, metal bracelets are normally the most popular. They originally are steeped in military tradition and are historically the most popular due to their simplicity and ruggedness. 

ID bracelets rate high on the masculinity spectrum due to their bulkiness and silver tone colour. Feature pieces on their own, wear metallic bracelets on your

Men should feature pieces on their own, and wear the metallic bracelets on your right-hand wrist, opposite the watch and play with matching the tone of the metal to your watch for a cleaner look.

With metal cuffs, be careful not to buy one that resembles a bangle. Burnished metal or oxidised styles make the cuff appear more masculine.

Pairing a leather cuff with a metal variety injects some toughness into the wrist. Plus, it’s a great way to add texture and layering.

LEATHER BANDS

Leather is masculine and its formalities can be played around with. 

Wider cuffs are seen as more casual while finer, thinner bracelet types are chicer.

Leather bracelets can be woven or simply a crafted, single piece of leather that wraps once or even twice around the wrist, then tied or closed with a press stud or clasp fastening.

Unlike metallic bracelets, leather contrasts well against watch dials, complementing the wrist nicely, as you stack your bracelet and timepiece together on the same arm.

Colour and pattern are where the fabric woven shines, opting for a colour that matches your pocket square or ties when wearing a suit or your cotton shorts when lazing by the pool.

HYBRID CHARMS

This type varies depending on the brand and occasion for wearing, but generally, consists of a plain bracelet band in leather or fabric and a bold metal feature – the clasp itself or a metal tone charm attached the bracelet.

The hybrid design – material and metal – makes it flashier than most, especially if the bracelet itself is brightly coloured edge with a bling-ed metal charm or glitzy clasp, designed in a bold motif (think an anchor, insect or flower).

They look great stacked, mixing bead patterns, sizing, material and colour for a combo that is oh so you. With a formal suit, go monochrome and minimal, while summer events – like the races or weddings require colour and texture, drawing on colours from your outfit to make the bracelet pop.
