Boy, it’s been a hell of a while since we put together some Wardrobe Functions style recommendations like these. We’re constantly sifting through and bookmarking items of interest online so here’s a handful of head-to-toe outfit accessories that have been begging me to hit that “PURCHASE” button.
A. Norse Projects: Bucket Hat
Traditional bucket hat with a contrast oxford cotton lining. Small Norse Projects tab on the brim. 65% polyester, 35% cotton. Made in the USA. Contrary to what you may think, a good bucket hat is not very hard to find to be honest. You can pick up a decent one at your local army surplus store, but even with that said, these Norse ones in Olive, Navy, Black and Yellow are pretty undeniable.

B. Miansai: Enamel Tie Clip
Sterling silver tie bar. Handmade in America. Question: To clip or not to clip? Answer: Always clip when possible. I’d usually go for a gold plated clip but these square patterned tie bars from Miansai are just the right pop to go along with that solid coloured necktie.

C. Uniform Wares: 250 Series Watch
Italian calf leather band. PVD coated satin brushed gold finish. 316L stainless steel case, a sapphire crystal lens, Swiss seven jewel movement and water resistant 5ATM. Yea, I see you on your Tumblr posting rollie after rollie after rollie. Problem is, it’s not yours. No fear though, this beaut by Uniform Wares is not only attainable but boasts an esthetic that rivals many of the classic timepieces out there today.

D. Bag N’ Noun: Napsac
100% Cotton Canvas. Shoulder straps made from cotton webbing. 26cm x 36cm X 17cm. Made in Japan. I’ve had my eyes on this collection of carry items for some time now and I’m more than impressed by the entire line. Bag N’ Noun’s design premise is so understated but the intelligent use of different fabrics and clasps make this a bag company to watch.

E. Kawatako: Brass Key Hook
100% Brass Key Hook. Kawatako Logo Stamped on Brass Disc. Made in Japan. I’m a sucker for a good looking keychain and this key hook by Kawatako (which translates to Leather Octopus) is a sharp, simple option. I’ve got my leather Tanner Goods one getting some good wear but it would be nice to throw some pure metal in my rotation.
$50 USD – Purchase: Currently sold out HERE
F. Henrik Vibskov: Nordic Socks
66% Wool, 34% Nylon. Made in Copenhagen, Denmark. Out of nearly everything in your wardrobe, socks probably get worn and torn the most. Henrik Vibskov, who runs a couple shops and an eponymous label in Denmark and Norway, makes some mean looking sock patterns. This traditional Nordic one in particular is sold out on his online shop but I managed to find it from another of his stockists.
