5 Summer Accessories Every Man MUST Have | Summertime Casual Men’s Wardrobe Essentials

Gentlemen, Antonio here. Today, we’re going to talk about five must
have summer accessories. As the temperature goes up, we wear less and
less clothing and therefore, our accessories become more important because they are more
visible. In this video, guys, I’m going to talk about
five accessories that I think you should consider either upgrading or making sure that you’ve
got the right one when it comes down to it. Are you ready? Let’s get into it. Number one. The perfect pair of sunglasses. And, notice I said, perfect, that’s the
adjective I’m throwing on because this, gentlemen is the dependent on you. I’m not going to say one style is best,
I’m not going to say one size is best because I don’t know the size of your head, I don’t
know the proportions of your head, I don’t know your personal likes, but I do know if
you go out there and when you find the perfect shades, you put them on, you look in that
mirror and you just go like, wow, I look good. That’s when you guys you need to stick with
that style, find that style and go out there and look. I know for the longest time, I was the guy
out there going and buying cheap shades and nothing wrong with cheap shades especially
if you’re going to the lake, you know you’re going to lose them, but most of the time,
you’re not doing that. And so, unless you’re really lucky, but
the point is guys, go out and find a pair of shades that when you put them on, you feel
great. Now, these are a pair of shades I’ve had
for about nine years. I think it’s been nine years and, they are
great pair of shades. I like them, but when it comes down to it
and they were probably the most expensive shades I ever – the first pair of really
nice shades and I stuck with those for a long time. But, now I’ve been out there trying many
different brands, pulled in some aviators. What do you, guys think? I really like aviators, I like this particular
pair, but I didn’t limit myself to that because I realized, okay, and I know maybe
some of you guys like I love aviators and I don’t really want to stick out, well,
change out the colors of the lenses. Perhaps change out the colors and the types
of the frames. Sometimes you’re going to find something
that maybe just doesn’t work for you. These wayfarers, I have to say not necessarily
my style, but all of a sudden, this, this right here I actually like these, I didn’t
expect to, but when you find a pair of like the club master and so, go out there explore,
find the perfect pair for you. And, if you want more, guys, in the description
I have an eBook where you can actually learn more about lenses and all the various types
out there. But, point number two, find unique watch that
you love the way it looks, it’s proportion on you, it’s lightweight, and, again, unique. So, the reason I’m going with unique is
you’re going to be and people – more people are going to see the watch and you want something
that’s going to be a conversation starter. When somebody sees this watch and they’re
like, wow, that’s a really nice play of brown on black, it’s proportioned right
to my hand. This one in the sample I have here, it’s
from Original Grain. Now, FYI, I want to let you guys know I’ve
actually got a couple other samples. They sent me this and I said, “Hey, guys,
I want to have some samples for my audience so I can send it out.” I want you guys to go check out Original Grain
and when you do that, in the comments below in detail, tell me which style which one you
really like, I’ve got a couple I would love to send out to you, guys, but you’ve got
to nail the exact style and tell me how it’s going to fit into your summer wardrobe. So, getting back to the unique aspect, everyone
I’ve had in the office for the last two weeks and I’ve had quite a few people in
my office, they’ve all seen this watch and like, wow, I really like the look. It’s a classic design, yet it’s got the
black face. It’s got the wood vessel and that’s what’s
really unique about Original Grain. They’ve got this one it’s a minimalist
design. It’s a 1.7 mm, the smallest wooded vessel
you’re going to see out there and overall, very nice proportioned well, it’s 40 mm
case right here. So, things like that work specifically for
me. I love unique and the look overall of the
watch and so, it’s a great conversation starter. A couple of other things about the watch is
they use Italian leather bands, Japanese quartz movements. Guys, go check them out and like I said, I
got a couple I’d love to giveaway to you. Must have accessory number three is a protective
hat. When I was in the Marine Corps, we wore hats
and guys in the military understand you wear hats all the time because they’re functional
and they will protect you from the sun. For some reason, nowadays, hats aren’t in
fashion or if you’re going to wear one, you’ve got to have confidence. That would my key point with wearing a hat,
guys, practice wearing it. Wear it in your house, wear it around the
yard. If you’re not used to how people are going
to react to it, then simply practice wearing them, but go buy yourself a really nice hat
like a Panama, maybe a straw fedora, you know, maybe those aren’t your styles maybe you
want to get a linen newsboy. But, what you want to be getting is something
that when you put it on, you feel good, you know you look good and it actually is functional. If you’re in Arizona, you’re over in Southern
California, maybe you’re down over in Florida, a hat is going to work great because in those
areas it’s just going to be summer, you can actually wear it quite a bit more, therefore
you can spend more money. And, when you’re looking to buy a hat, make
sure you buy the hat from a hat store that specializes in hats. I was in a menswear store and they happen
to have a couple summer hats. I looked at them and all of a sudden I realized
half the hats that they had there on display were actually broken, the straw was breaking
up. But the issue is, that’s an afterthought
for them, the hats were not their main business. You want to go to someone that’s going to
help you find the right size, the right proportioned hat, and it’s going to give you so many
options of, yes, you’re going to spend a little bit more, but you’re going to have
something. When you put it on, you’re going to look
great. [0:05:08]
Must have summer accessory number four, lightweight footwear. So, we’re talking espadrilles, sandals,
we’re going to talk boat shoes, canvas sneakers. Guys, what you’re looking for is something
that’s going to be a lighter weight than what you normally are going to wear especially
in the winter, something that’s going to be more breathable. I like lighter colors as well it usually works
better with shorts. I love the lighter colors, they’re going
to be in your wardrobe at this time of the year. And, go, get a pair of no-show socks. These no-show socks have at least a few of
them because you’re going to go through them very quickly when you’re sweating,
they’re going to prevent your shoes from staining on the inside and from smelling. My final must have accessory for the summer,
I like to have a really nice leather portfolio notebook. I find that I spend a lot of time outdoors
and I like to think and I know that many of you guys, I mean I’ve got multiple electronic
devices; iPads, iPhones, all the other tablets out there, but I find that actually having
something that is beautiful in design that actually has pens, paper, you know, allows
me to write my thoughts out is great. I just had a friend in town and he showed
me his notebook and actually, every single day he categorizes where he puts out exactly
what he eats and how he exercises. And his thing and it’s very interesting
strategy but he creates a streak. So, he has done this for over two thousand
days. Think about that. And so, everyday, he’s putting down what
he ate and how he exercise and the thing is he never wants to break the streak and he’s
constantly able to go back and see how he’s taking care of his body. So, something like that, you know, I’m not
saying you have to do that, but I do like the idea of having a beautiful portfolio,
a beautiful notebook, a beautiful journal that you can have with you and that you can
keep track of things when you’ve got the time. All right, guys, that’s it. Now, don’t forget, in the comments, I want
you to go check out Original Grain. I’ve got a couple of watches I want to send
you guys, all you have to do is go to their website, I’m going to link to it right here. And, when you go to their website, in the
comments down below, let me know which specific style, be very specific as to which style
you like you think would look great with your summer wardrobe. That’s it, guys. I’ll see you in the next video.

  2. I checked their watches and I liked the THE
    It works perfectly with the jeans and casuals

  3. Mine would be the Watch. Granted if its not a very good Watch i don't wear any at all, i use my phone to tell me the time. But for an outfit piece I love a good nice design Watch and for that I like a "Hublot" watch and really love the unique band design on the watch. Yes they are way expensive and can't afford those so i really would like to find a good and cheap affordable imitation piece for a Hublot time piece.

  4. Great Video. I am new to the channel, but I have really enjoyed what I have seen so far. I personally really like the Rosewood/ Chrome watch. I think it is very vibrant and would look great during the summer. I personally think it would look great with a polo, rosewood belt, white shorts and any boat shoes.

  5. 5 must have summer accessories for un confident men that have no game & un masculine. Don't buy stupid sh*t you don't need. That's what women do. Minimalism will serve your needs as a real man

  6. I loved the minimalist Ebony/matte black one, thats the one you have, its awesome, i really like classic and simple watches and these one is really elegant. it would look great on any outfeet, from dark jeans and a polo to shorts and t-shirts. besides, the wood touch makes it really excepecional. so i would be glad to get one.

  7. Hey! I rely like your chanal dude. You are awesome! As for the watches, I rely do like the Classic Rosewood / Black Classic. It's just amazing good looking! Keep up the good work Antonio! Watch: http://www.originalgrain.com/products/black-and-rosewood-watch

  8. I checked out the Watch site. To be honest, I love my swiss watches but some of the original grain watches look quite sharp and would make an excelent casual accesory. Although not as pricey as the swiss watches, not cheap and nasty either. Japanese internals can definitely be relied upon.

  9. Antonio,
    Original Grain is one of the coolest watches I've seen in a long time. I have many watches and over the past couple years I have gone to the big bulky ones. My style of dress has gone more sleek and fitted and I think my watch should fit in perfectly with my new style. The Ebony/Matte black watch is the one I prefer. The ultra sleek case appears to be so comfortable. Also I recently came back from a vacation to Italy where I purchased some Italian leather belts. They are now my favorites. The Italian leather band makes me think of quality. I work and play hard and the scratch resistant crystal would be very important to me.
    ps…..great videos my friend. I've learned so much from you and appreciate all you do. Live with Passion and never stop smiling……..

  10. Hi, Antonio!

    Hope you and your family are doing well. With regards to Original Grain, I think they completely nailed it in the style section. The minimal and simplistic face design is an old fashioned classic style that pairs well with nearly any outfit. Also, the thin wooden bezel adds a nice "wood trim" like look to the watch, which brings a new flavor of elegance to the table.

    Specifically for me, I think the Zebrawood/Rosegold colorway would best complement my summer style. This is because I generally wear lighter color clothing, and my favorite colors, and ones I wear the most, are blue, white, and black. I've also been starting to wear polo shirts a lot more since I recently landed my first full-time job, thus this caliber of watch would help my professional style more than anything. The brown leather strap and wood trim bezel pairs classy and style to make this watch and specific colorway a killer accessory for my situation.

    Thank for the video and I look forward to many more!



  11. The rosewood/chrome from minimalist watches, I know you must of sent them all out by now I just wanted to tell you my opinion! I'm a new subscriber and I'm also subscribed to alpha m. You guys should do a video together! 🙂

  12. Where can I get some no show socks that don't slip off? I have never owed a pair of no show socks but, I have heard that is one problem about them. I am overseas now so I am looking to purchase them online. Any recommendations?

  13. I'm really only starting to take notice of my style and fashion choices and I have really found your videos really helpful in finding the right style for me. I really like the Rosewood / Chrome watch by original grain. It looks like a really versatile watch and would be a great addition to my wardrobe.

  14. Ebony, matte black one would fit perfectly with my prescription sunglasses,would match my belt and I would wear a nice shirt with rolled sleeves that contrasts it 🙂

  15. great advise, went to the website, the Ebony Matte Black looked like it would be the best fit for me since I favor dark colors


  16. To start off, I would just like to say thank you for all the tips and tricks to stay stylish all year long. Also it's great that a watch company like Original Grain offers a minimalist watch. One thing that separates Original Grain from other watch companies is that they make wood on a watch not too overpowering while still keeping it looking bold, especially on their minimalist watch collection.
    Second of all, if I had to choose between their minimalist watches I would definitely go with either the Ebony/Matte Black or the Zebrawood/Rose Gold. With the Ebony/Matte Black version it would look really nice when dressed up because of its sleek subtleness. On the other hand, with the Zebrawood/Rose Gold version you would be able to dress it up really nicely or dress it casual and still have a stylish looking watch. Between both the Ebony/Matte Black and Zebrawood/Rose Gold, I would have to go with the Zebrawood/Rose Gold version just because it would match my style the best year round.

  17. I absolutely love the original grain watches. Every watch is unique because it's made from wood and I love the uniqueness of these watches. The ebony matte black would definitely up my style cause I have wooden glasses that would match perfectly and black just goes with everything. Just love these watches.

  18. Antonio,
    Great series, and I would really appreciate a Whiskey Barrel Distressed Brown, 47mm, it would complement my summer Business casual attire, thanks for your time and consideration.

  19. The Ebony/Gold Minimalist. I have never really been able to rely on a watch. I have small wrists which has always made finding the perfect sized band and watch face difficult. Have toying around with some measurments, I have found that the Original Grain Minimalist in Ebony and Gold would be a perfect size and style to add to my new and improving wardrode.

    I would be able to rely on a timepiece that works, not only for summer wear, but as a year round accessory, rather than having to pull my phone out or tracking down a computer or a broken wall clock to get what the time is.

  20. Wow i didnt know you served in the corps. Thank you for your service! I am enlisting after high school. Great information and great tips.

  21. the minimalist ebony/matte black would be my style and it fits great because i have a very slim wrist and it works with almost all of my outfits, and would love to own one

  22. You are the Man. love your content

    Honestly I am a newbie of style. I want to learn and I found your channel. I stumbled across Original Grain on Facebook and by looking at their watch I was like "damn"

    by going to youtube it lead me to your channel

    I would love to get my hand on "The Barrel, Sapele / Black Matte" if you have a sample

    you got a subscriber!

  23. The RMRS code doesn't give me a discount
    It says: " Code did not match any gift care or discount".

    I bought it any ways. The watch looks very elegant.

  24. Hey Antonio, do you replay to your comments?
    I went and bought the recommended watch, it hasn't arrive but I think is not very responsible to not respond when someone tells you that your discount doesnot work

  25. The Barrel Whiskey/Espresso would be a nice addition since I like to wear brown short and comparable to my skin tone.

  26. Stop showcasing by shit watches.
    Original grain is horrible. Just read the many reviews on Amazon of people receiving their watch broken and scratched. Not to mention the wood was cracked.

  27. Im a bigger guy, also on the pale side. How do you think white or lighter summer colors work for bigger guys and does skin tone, or even hair color come into play? Be curious to hear your perspective. Love your videos, I'm a truck driver in GA but when I go out it's all suits. Your videos gave me the confidence and tips to look like Wall Street on a Wal-Mart budget and pull it off. It gets hot down here in Savannah and dont want to be stuck with charcoal, blue, and even light grey but worry the typical "summer look" might make pale guys look "washed out". I don't hear you talk about skin color a lot. I know it can be a sensitive topic but I also know it's a reality a lot of guys deal with. Side note, what was your MOS? I was Heavy Equipment USMC
    Semper Fi, thanks for your service

  28. Hi Antonio! I would like to get the "Minimalist 40mm" Matte black/ Ebony wood/ wood dial.
    I want this watch alot because its simple and would fit my style. In the summer i mostly wear stuff
    like Black chinos with a white T-shirt og Casual Shirt of some sort. Thanks for always helping to improve my style!

  29. THE MINIMALIST MATTE BLACK / EBONY WOOD / WOOD DIAL, love this watch. I have always fallen in love with large chronograph watches, this is probably the firs watch i liked, unfortunately its not available on the webiste.

  30. that black and wood really looks nice. not to bulky that it's obvious your trying to show it of but nicely styled that when someone sees it its got more of a class look

  31. I don't wear a watch anymore, the only accessories I have on my left hand are a bracelet made of hand carved skull beads made of a lighter wood and a tattoo of serotonin's structure. I'm usually wearing Clark's boots(best god damn boots in the world I own 6 pair) slimmer jeans and a button up shirt. is this acceptable? Also the ring is reserved exclusively for the right hand, usually my grandfathers gold ring that matches the wood of the bracelet nicely. Are these acceptable accessories? Are tattoos accessories to be considered in our wardrobe?

  32. I have to say Devil Dog you are awesome. I get a lot out of your videos. I am trying to slim down to look better and your videos help me out

  33. Please wear a real watch. Choose a company that has history and heritage. I suggest you watch the urban gentry channel for watch advice.

  34. I like the minimalist collection. The one that stands out to me I the Zebrawood/Rose gold. Fist I don’t currently have a minimalist or a watch in that color. I am a Movado watch person myself. Recently my wife and took a vacation to Hawaii and I purchased a Koa wood watch. I do have a few colleagues that wear Original Gain and speak highly of them.

  35. My favorite watch from Original Grain is the ebony/matte black minimalist with the black leather strap (the same as yours!). My favorite part about this watch is the wood because it is very catchy and I also love the classy look of the watch. In addition, my wrist is very thin and so the watch would work well witch my wrist. The plain and simple dial of the watch make the wood stand out and i love it. The fact that the company plants one tree with every watch sold is very important for me! It would be my first watch and it would perfectly start my collection! I love your vids and I'm a big fan btw!! keep up the good work!

  36. Dear Antonio,
    I recently bought a watch for my dad for father day from Original Grain and using your discount code is the only great thing that I get out of Original Grain. Original had sent me a defective watch not once but twice. Their way of communicating is so bad, even ordering the watch two week ahead of time and dealing with their service to fix the problem lead to a day where I have nothing to give to my dad.

  37. Just wanted to say I love the Original Grain Watches. I purchased the Classic V1 in Rosewood Black and would never have found these watches if it wasn't for your video. I know this is an old video, but it's so relevant today as well.

  38. I've worn an original grain watch for a year now and it has gotten me the most compliments so far out of all my clothing articles, minus my leather footwear. Learned about Original Grain on RMRS. Great value, great look.

  39. I learned something new every time I watch your video. I normally do not wear a hat, but you make sense why we should wear a hat during the summer.

    Thank you for great advice.

  40. What are your thoughts or opinions on maybe wearing an earring as an acceptable summer accessory if you have a pierced ear? Btw great advice and I am now an avid subscriber thank you!
