What do the Grammys, Downton Abbey and Valentine’s Day have in common? That’s right: Dandy details! This Valentine’s Day, take a cue from Justin and Jay-Z in “Suit & Tie” and let your man get dandy. Try pairing one of these gentlemanly accessories with a dinner out (or request a private fashion show, if you know what I mean):
Gallant & Beau London Customized Dandy Box Set — As TDO’s Kathleen recently said, every dude needs a pair of socks. I couldn’t agree more. Inspired by “the original ‘dandy’ Beau Brummell,” these socks are the perfect excuse to experiment with color. And, for $48.50, you can customize your own box (shown: Sloane Red, Westminster Black and St. James Red).
Ted Baker London Silk Bow Tie — It’s silk, it’s striped, it’s a classic … what’s not to love? Not everyone is brave enough to wear a bow tie, but this one seems like a classic gateway choice. And it too is under $50.
Brooks Brothers Silk Pocket Square — If ever your man’s outfit looks too plain, just add a pocket square! A favorite accessory of Fonzworth Bentley’s (host of MTV’s “From G’s to Gents”), the pocket square adds just the right finishing touch to any suit jacket. And on Valentine’s Day, what better color to wear than red?
