How to Supplement Your Wardrobe With Accessories

Building your wardrobe can be fun and easy or complicated and time consuming, depending on your approach. When it comes to carrying money, some men wad it up and stuff it into their pockets, while others prefer the security and style of wallets and money clips. Regardless of your personal tastes, here's the basics of choosing the best accessories to add flair to your wardrobe.

SeLecting Wallets

Merited American comedian, Julius Henry Marx (aka Groucho Marx), said: “Money frees you from doing things you dislike. Since I dislike nearly everything I do, money is very handy to have around.”

Chances are, if you agree with him, you probably carry a fair bit of money around so you are prepared for most contingencies. After all, for everything else there's always a credit card.


In on our experience, men select wallets based on their needs. For example, frequent travellers typically choose a billfold so they can carry a passport, a pen and other items in addition to cash. For everyday use, however, a slim billfold that fits easily into your trousers' back pocket is our recommendation.

Over time we've discovered when a man finds his billfold has copious space, he immediately over-fills it. So, what's the best way to avoid an uncomfortable two inches of backside bulge in your trousers? Simply purchase a wallet that limits how much cash and miscellaneous items you can tote around.

Choosing Money Clips

Money clips are convenient alternatives to billfolds. Their benefits include, but are not limited to:

  • They fit comfortably in a front pocket of your trousers or jacket
  • They provide more security for cash than a back pocket
  • They force you to carry essentials

These features pay for themselves instantly if you ever fall prey to a pickpocket's guile. Just think, if you are carrying a billfold when the pickpocket strikes, chances are you would lose cash, identity cards, credit cards and so on. With a money clip, all you could potentially lose is a bit of cash.

Now that you know how to take care of the little details that finalize your look, how well are you taking care of the larger details likecustom tailored men's suits or business shirts? There's no sense buying top shelf accessories if you're just going to pair them with a cheap suit.

Montagio did a great job on wedding suits for me and my two groomsmen. Bally provided us with fantastic service and the result was definitely superior to an off-the-rack option... more »
