You can style a gentleman’s suit in many ways. It usually involves a crisp shirt, tie, a classic buckled belt and a pair of dress shoes. There are, however, a host of accessories out there if you’re looking to further refine your look and add more panache to your suit. From silk pocket squares to lapel pins, here are 5 classy accessories to elevate your sartorial factor.


Hermes Grand H Pongee Jacquard silk pocket square

Whether or not you’re wearing a tie, the pocket square is a natural complement for any suit. This silk edition from Hermes in noir featuring their classic ‘H’ in multi-fonts is subtle yet distinct enough, and would do nicely with an earth-toned classic cut single breasted ensemble. Simple yet debonair.

Brooks Brothers Engravable Tie Bar

If you fancy an understated elegant accessory, look no further than Brooks Brothers. The original American suit and tie pioneers bring you a befitting tie bar in your choice of sterling silver or 14k plated sterling silver. Etched with simple linear detailing, personalise your own with engraved initials to stand out from the crowd.

Georg Jensen Koppel – 41mm Chronograph

With a nearly four-decade long heritage, this Koppel iteration marries minimalism and sophistication in a sleek chrome chronograph with a white dial and steel bracelet. The timepiece also has a calendar aperture, and its precise Swiss-made movement offers a high level of accuracy. 


Ermenegildo Zegna Rose Gold Silver Skeleton Cufflinks

Nothing says you’re a man who appreciates fine detailing like this pair of Skeleton Cufflinks from Zegna. Each cufflink features an intricate skeleton watch movement visible through covered glass with delicately carved herringbone patterns on two of its sides. A remarkable conversation starter for the refined gentleman.

Alfred Dunhill Motorities Racer Lapel Pin

A brand with a long-standing association with motoring and motor racing, Alfred Dunhill’s Motorities Racer Lapel Pin is a fun little piece that depicts that history. With a unique racer motif finished in silver, this piece is part of a similar themed range of accessories inspired by an elite group of British racing enthusiasts known as the Bentley Boys. Who says suits need to be conservative?
