Most men are not easily swayed by fashion trends, especially when it comes to accessories, a somewhat foreign word in their vocabulary. But as a recent New York Times article pointed it, it’s the guys who are making a statement this fall with layered bracelets and plenty of “flair”

The most you ever see on a man’s hands are his watch and his wedding ring, or lack thereof, but lately guys of all walks of life have been sporting one or more, (what I like to call “man bands”) of their own.

Drawing inspiration from the Kanye West’s (as the Times points out) and Johnny Depp’s of the world, this layered look is no longer just for creative types. Even the most laid back guys guy, could wear a simple bracelet made of leather, hemp, or rope and still appear his manly self.

Perfect for boyfriends, groomsmen or any school-bound guy, these bracelets are a great accessory for fall.

What do you think of this trend? Yay or Nay?
