The rebirth of jewellery within men’s fashion has in the last couple of years hit an all-time high, with the market expanding dramatically with accessories now becoming key in many outfits.
Excluding the wedding band, jewellery of this kind was previously been excluded from the average males ‘look’. However thanks to a hand full of brands a large market has been opened for high-quality men’s jewellery at affordable pricing, alongside designs which would catch anyone’s eye, these brands are becoming the innovators in this bracket of the market, with their alluring designs.
The founder, Oliver Proudlock had two passions as a child and these were fashion and art, finally collaborating the duo with the opening of his brand Serge Denimes in 2011.
Seen throughout the brand’s previous collections are beautifully designed pieces with the finer details never being off the mark for look or quality. ‘The brand strives to build an artistic community and focus on producing exciting yet relevant designs.’

Products range anywhere from £25-£188 and in our opinion here at Clothes Make The Man, if you want to spice up your look with that little extra piece then this is the place to look and with a new collection on the way you have a lot to look forward to.

Alex Orso

Simplicity is key to Alex Orso designs, through using geometric shaping with clean cut lines and varied shaping is key to the brands look within this collection, with recently released pieces including Arrow necklace in silver as well as the nut and bolt necklace in gold, however our favourite pieces include the stones, as each piece showcases the stones natural colour and thanks to slight variations in the cut, each individual piece is unique.

With a price range £85-£270 the products are slightly more expensive, however, for a unique piece, we know we wouldn’t be complaining. ‘Detail defines the man.’

Mister

We love both of the previous two brands however, both these brands might not necessarily serve all purposes, with Mister offering a product with the option of more bling, continuing the more affordable prices, all though some ranging up to £500, with the vast majority being under£70.

What’s different about Mister is that it offers the choice personalised jewellery with the brand bringing your creation to life, a feature which we love. Similar to Alex Orso’s designs for bracelets, simplicity is clearly key, however for the pendants found on necklaces they offer a more detailed option including our favourites the mini Medusa and Mini King Tut pendant.

To conclude if you haven’t yet, we would strongly advise you visit these three sites and add a little something extra to your look, with the smaller detail completing your look, so what are you waiting for?

Italian footwear brand Diadora is a renowned brand when it comes to tennis gear, and tennis legend Bjorn Borg is the brand’s most iconic figurehead. Diadora is famed for being the brand of choice of Bjorn Borg dating back to 1981, Diadora designed the B.Elite (the B stands for Borg) silhouette for Bjorn and is one of the most celebrated tennis shoes ever made.
With the release of the movie Borg vs McEnroe hitting the big screen later this month on the 22nd, it seems only fitting that the iconic B.Elite style, instrumental within the sporting history of that decade is enjoying a resurgence amongst sports fans and hipsters alike. known for his on-court outbursts, LaBeouf’s depiction of former World No. 1 tennis player John Mcenroe, is not to be missed. The actor even made a comparison stating that both him and McEnroe are “passionate, perfectionist, narcissistic.”  The plot follows the pair’s iconic battles in the tennis court throughout the ’70s and ’80s, which eventually culminated in the 1980 Wimbledon Men’s Singles final — a match viewed by some as the greatest ever. McEnroe’s legendary “You can not be serious!” rant occurred the following year in a match at the same tournament. Watch the trailer below:

The B.Elite shoes are available in various designs and colours for both men and women, to browse the collection on line click here.

Swedish tennis legend-turned-designer Björn Borg has unveiled his “SIGNATURE” collection at the Royal Tennis Hall during Stockholm Fashion Week. Borg, whose signature Scandinavian style helped formulate the slick ’70s tennis player style, has inspired the likes of Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums) and George Michael, among others.

The Signature Collection and the Main Autumn Winter 2017 Collection, were showcased simultaneously formed by two armies epitomising retrospective and futuristic features. British stylist Tom Guinness presented a real hybrid between old and new points of the brand – clashing contrasts of retro silhouettes of the Signature Collection and bold, futuristic performance sportswear of Fall Winter 2017. Guinness gave a contemporary interpretation of the limited edition Signature Collection that highlighted the tracksuits in bold colours, sweatbands, and sneakers. The Main Autumn/Winter 2017 collection is a representation of maximal-minimal and more advanced technical active wear.

“This show emphasised what Björn Borg is all about and was an empowering statement for us. Contemporary and prospective, yet true to our DNA and the legacy as a tennis and sports brand. We wanted to state our position as the ultimate fashion sports brand” says Jonas Lindberg Nyvang, Global Marketing Director at Björn Borg.

Even though most of us are basking in the sunlight this summer, the autumn leaves and winter breeze is just around the corner, and it’s time of that year again to start layering up to battle the ruthless weather – which is a perfect excuse to go treat yourself to acquire new garments. Why not upgrade your current wardrobe with a brand new sweater?  but not just any sweater, tennis sweaters.

Here at Clothes Make The Man, we love it when preppy menswear classics get a modern twist with its silhouette. These items lose its blandness, and sometimes outdated roots which give the wearer an updated yet smart look, thanks to their face-framing and shoulder-broadening diagonal collar stripes. These bold V-neck knits look just as good over jeans and a tee as they do when layered with your favourite suit or slim chinos. Even if you don’t play tennis, you can still feel like Roger Federer no matter how bad your backhand is. Here are our top 6 picks for you to check out.

One of sports most controversial athletes at this present time and the UFC’s Irish poster boy Conor McGregor is not only an influential figure in the sporting world, he is now taking the fashion world by storm, through his love for high-end fashion and in-your-face outfits, specifically through his bespoke one of one suits. Suits have become part of the Conor McGregor’s image, with a focus on press days often switching to what he is wearing, rather than the up and coming fight. McGregor has been known to spend thousands on bespoke individual suits, with David Heil, CEO of David August, serving as his personal suit-maker in order to create some beautiful pieces. 

And for those interested in acquiring the three-piece wool suit, David August will be releasing this limited edition garment, but it comes with a hefty price tag of $6,500. As stated on the company website, the bespoke suit is made-to-measure, with an estimated completion time of 12-15 weeks. According to CEO David August Heil, he was bombarded by calls and messages from clients requesting for the said look, and it was a demand he was just unable to ignore. “We’re only producing a limited quantity, which will be numbered and signed by myself so it will be an exclusive group who own this style,” Heil said in a statement in an interview with GQ.

In the build up to McGregor’s fight with Floyd Mayweather, some of Connor’s most suave and edgy outfits have been seen. With the standout piece so far being covered in the text ‘f*** you’ rather than your tradition pin stripe, the mixture of style yet disrespects within this one specific outfit caused social media to go into meltdown. Conor has openly said about the ‘McGregor Suit Collection’, which everyone originally took as a joke however soon came to the realisation that he was being deadly serious, is this something, which we would like to see?

I’ll leave you to decide.
