10 Accessories Every Man Must Own (Spring 2020)


10 Accessories Every Man Must Own
[0:00:00] Next up on our list… [Coughs] [Sound effect]
Next… [Stutters] [Sound effect] First up on this list of essential accessory,
gentlemen, the simple pocketknife. I’ve had this one since I was 18 years old, used it
in a wide variety of situations. But, at some point in my early 20s, I decided, you know
what? I’m going to upgrade to a multi-tool, and I love multi-tools to this day.
They’ve just got everything you need right there. You buy a high-quality multi-tool,
it could last you the rest of your life or until a friend steals it. [Sound effect] Now,
the issue with multi-tool though is they’re heavy, they’re bulky, and they’re something
that you don’t want to carry on you every single day, unless you like carrying a lot
of extra weight. So, this one actually sits in my truck and
I keep it there, but then I started carrying a smaller multi-tool and then really liked
it. But, the issue with these smaller multi-tools is you try going through TSA security, they’re
going to take it away from you. So then, I put this on my key ring. And this
actually has been the best little multi-tool, it basically has never been confiscated, has
traveled with me all over the world. Looks like a key and gets the job done. It has a
tiny blade on it which actually doesn’t look like a blade, so will cut into things, a little
screwdriver. It just gets the job done. Next up, gents, let’s talk about bluetooth
headsets. Agree, disagree that these are essential? Let me know down in the comments. I want to
hear from you guys. But, I’m going to say they’re essential. Why? Because functionality.
You’re traveling, you’re going through the airport, you want to listen to your favorite
tunes, you want to be able to take your favorite call. You’re sitting there on the airplane
and some baby is crying who’s not yours. Yeah, you want to be able to tune them out,
you’re driving hands-free. So many benefits. But, I know why detractors say that these
are not essential that they are one of the worse things out there because, yeah, people
are walking across the street not paying attention about getting hit by cars. There are people
that walk into a crowded elevator, everyone’s just enjoying and this guy just is talking,
talking like there’s no one around. I get it, bad manners have really given this a bad
name, but when it comes to functionality and essential accessory in my opinion, yes.
Next up on our list of essential accessories, a man’s watch. Now, a lot of guys out there
say, “I don’t need a watch, I’ve got my phone. I can tell the time right here.”
But, come on, it’s not nearly as stylish as wearing a watch and there are actually studies
out there that show men that wear watches are more likely be punctual and on time.
Gents, when it comes to watches there are tons of options out there; automatic watches,
quartz watches, dive watches, dress watches. The options are endless. I know for a lot
of you guys you want to watch this bold, one that’s going to get you compliments, one
that’s not going to break the bank. Guys, check out Vincero, the sponsor of today’s
video. Now, gents, if you haven’t been over to the website for awhile, you want to check
it out. They’ve got all new styles, one of them The Apex. This one has been selling really
well. You want to go see if it’s in stock right now, just a beautiful watch.
Another watch I’m absolutely loving, The Vessel. So, yes, they created a dive watch down to
200 meters, a very functional watch, but good-looking at the same time. Very different from all
the other dive watches out there. And, of course, they’ve got the classic Bellwether
Collection, one of my personal favorites. What I love about this is on the dial with
that blue dial the silver, yes, I absolutely love this watch right here.
Or maybe that’s too busy, go check out their Kairos Collection. This is one of their first
collections. And what I love about this one, they’ve also got it in an automatic watch.
And, let’s not forget about the Chrono Collection, easily one of the most popular collections
and for good reason. Just look at those watches, absolutely beautiful.
One of my favorite watches, the white dial with the bronze case with that dark brown,
just the leather straps, great job on this. And, again, all their leather straps, interchangeable.
Gents, Vincero has over 20,000 five-star reviews. I’m linking to Vincero down in the description
of today’s video with the best deal you’re going to find out there. Use it or lose it,
guys. That link is a great deal. Go check out their collection. I absolutely love all
their new watches. And make sure to check out all the other accessories they’ve got
as well. So, for the next essential accessory on this
list, let me set it up. You’re walking into a room you’re about to sign a multi-million
dollar deal that for years you worked on with your company and you grab that plastic cheap
pen and you go to sign that multi – now, come on, you don’t want to use a cheap plastic
free pen. Guys, you want something that has meaning.
A quality pen, this separates the boys from the men. You actually have something that
has meaning. This one right here was gifted to me by a good friend and he said, “Hey.
You helped me achieve so much by making these introductions and teaching me. I want this
to be a pen when you’re writing down and journaling that this will lead to your next multi-million
dollar deal.” Guys, when you’ve got a quality pen and
they come in all variety of styles and options, you — it’s small things, but you — this
instrument can lead to so many great things. You think about the Constitution, you think
about all these great documents that have been signed by amazing men amazing women just
like you guys out there watching, why not have something to remember that moment by.
Now, if you didn’t buy any of that and you’re, “Antonio, that’s a bunch of BS,” then
go grab yourself a tactical pen at least. I love these. You can use them as a weapon,
they’ve got flashlights on them, little things like that I absolutely love about these pens
right here. [0:04:57]
Next up on our list, sunglasses. I don’t think anyone out there can argue that a good pair
of sunglasses can make you just look better make it look cooler. But, don’t forget guys
with sunglasses, you want a protective case. And with that protective case, you also want
to have a loose case that you could slip them into your pocket and not scratch the sunglasses.
And, speaking of scratching your sunglasses, use your microfiber cloth. So many guys scratch
their lenses by using their t-shirt. Yes, your t-shirt will scratch your lenses.
All right, gents, so the next accessory, it’s right in front of you. Do you see it? You
spot it? It’s right there, the boutonniere. So, for over a hundred years, men have been
wearing boutonnieres on their jacket lapels, but if we go back even farther we can see
for thousands of years, men have adorned themselves with flowers. A lot of guys say, “Oh! That’s
not very manly.” Well, you know gladiators wear flowers before going out because it symbolized
the fleeting beauty of life, and that’s what the boutonniere is all about.
Now, a lot of us you know we go to a wedding you got to wear something like this that isn’t
that attractive, a little bit overly sized. But, what I would recommend is finding something
maybe that goes with your jacket. This one, a bit more muted. I could have gone with something
right here with a bit more color. But, let’s talk about a bit more color right here, the
pocket square. You notice that? Now, when it comes to pocket squares, the
fold actually isn’t that important, what’s important is that you actually wear it. Most
men wearing sports jackets, blazers jackets, suit jackets, they don’t even try to sport
a pocket square. So, guys, if you’ve got a breast pocket on your jacket, go ahead and
stuff it with a pocket square. Your style is going to level up immediately.
Now, for this next accessory, let’s have a little bit of fun, and that is don’t be afraid
to wear your pins. I’m at Disneyland the other day with my kids and guess what? They wear
this pin and they get special treatment. That’s what pins do is they open up doors.
So, if you’re a part of an association you’re part of a group and they’ve got a pin and
you can find a way to add it to your clothing to your style, go ahead and do it, guys. I
see guys that wear the EGA. Basically, the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor on a suit jacket
and I immediately say, “Hey, you were a marine. I was a marine, let’s talk.”
Next up on the list of essential accessories, jewelry. Now, I know a lot of you guys are
thinking, “Antonio, a man should only ever wear a wedding ring.” But, guys, there’s
tons of other options out there. Many of you guys come from cultures in which jewelry is
much more accepted. One of the easiest pieces to incorporate into
your wardrobe, cufflinks. Not as many guys pull off cufflinks nowadays especially if
you’re just wearing shirts and you want to get them all made with cufflinks. I have a
good friend he did. He absolutely loves it, just got rid of buttons in general. He doesn’t
even wear jackets all the time, but his shirts stand out and they draw attention to his wrist
and it’s always a great conversation piece. But, guys, maybe bracelets. I’m not a huge
bracelet fan, but I do — it makes sense you could have bracelets on one hand a watch on
the other or rings. Now, people ask me all the time, “Antonio, why do you wear your
wedding ring on the right hand?” Well, I was married in the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.
But, maybe you’ve got a ring that you just want to wear has special meaning to you, maybe
you’re an engineer up in Canada, special ring for that. Point is is wear something that
has meaning and don’t be afraid to practice wearing it and wear it with confidence.
Now, really quick let’s talk about suspenders a.k.a. braces. Are these essential? Ah, no.
But, I think they’re incredibly stylish. And, for the larger guy that is always cinching
up his belt, his pants still falling down, I would argue they are essential.
Now, a lot of people they’re just not familiar with them and so, because it’s unfamiliar,
they think it’s uncomfortable it’s just something that’s not, you know, they’re worried about
try wearing these. Get your pants adjusted. A lot of these they have this right here that
you just simply have to put buttons on the inside of your pants or simply get the snap
on kind. The point is try using suspenders and you’ll find it especially if you’re a
bigger guy always having to pull up your pants, these are going to solve your problem and
they’re going to add a bit of style to your overall look.
Now, what about tie clips, money clips, business card cases? I didn’t put them on the list
because I didn’t feel they were a hundred percent essential, but if you disagree, let
me know down in the comments. And, gentlemen, headwear – hats. I think
that you can separate yourself. They in my opinion are an essential accessory especially
if it’s functional during the winter or during the summer to keep that sun off of your head.
And, if you want to learn more about hats, check out this guide I’ve got for you right
here, the ultimate guide to headwear. I had a lot of fun putting this video together,
and you will learn which hat is right for you.

  • Pass on the headset
    I hate listening to music while I’m walking

  • A man wares a watch , just facts

  • my watch collection is only 7 .I don't own a vincero yet, but Vincero watches looks better to me than many of those US $1000 and more luxury watches. Love that functional pen Antonio, I gonna get me one.

  • Love the videos ! I would recommend the small pocket Swiss army knife from victorinox. They are extremely practical and don't get confiscated thanks to their small blade. I really don't like the crappy fashion watch ads …

  • Bluetooth headphones very sweet

  • Wireless earbud yes wires are a mess

  • Bluetooth ear pods are an essential: When it comes to pounding pavement or traveling through the airport here in an absolute necessity into those one percent they get hit by a car would’ve been the same person got eaten by a dinosaur

  • Nice Iron Ring shout out. Any other Canadian Engineers here?

  • man, no need for the nonsense couple of seconds you put at the start of each video.

  • I can not see a standard wristwatch ( Hand dial ) Is there a good digital watch out there that you could recommend? Thanks, Antonio.

  • I'd change the bluetooth headset for either clip-on or on-ear headphones (both wire), both for safety (save yourself some ear infections) and quality; about the suspenders, even if I'm not large, they're much more comfortable than any belt, especially if you crouch, sit or move a lot in general.

  • ME: I have a pen
    ME: I have a pineapple
    ME: uuuuuuh penpineapple

  • I think a business card case is like using a great pen, you are just a step up in style.

  • Some would argue with keeping a credit card because we now have everything in our smartphones but I think having a credit card or a wallet is professional seems confidential that you stick with what you like.

  • Hey there devil dog what happened to shirt stays. I hated them active duty; when I got out and started doin office work I realized why we wore them.

  • Multitool – essential when you travel, no doubts, can't imagine going somewhere without.

  • For my fellow Brits. In regards to the first item, we can get something called EDC (every day carry) knives. which are the only legal to carry without good reason knifes in the UK. You can also get EDC compliant multi-tools.

  • Spring essentials 2020: emergency fund, food, water, hand sanitizer, mask, vaccine.

  • Perhaps you should try using your pocket square to wipe your sweaty forehead.  Advice for men….opt for a quality Timex, Citizen, Seiko or one of hundreds of microbrand watches before opting for those cheap fashion brand watch like Vincero.

  • Antonio, speaking as a Corporate salesman whose annual sales budget,of multiple million dollar sales, from more than forty years on the road, I learned that there were two items far more valuable than the pen you rightly recommend.
    They are a second pen, that you know will always work and a spare piece of paper.
    I carry a $2 four colour Bic, which I use for four colour desktop presentations and very slim Moleskine pocket notebook. The cost of the writing instrument is irrelevant, it's the fact that you have a pen that works.

  • Antonio got AirPod Pros😂 I love it❤️

  • people are in survival mood now and you're uploading these shitty video!!! Make one about "10 things you must avoid during pandemic" or "10 things you must do during pandemic" or "10 things you must have during covid 19 pandemic"

  • Excellent points my friend!
    However I don’t agree with the Bluetooth ear piece in my opinion that’s just too “geto” Maybe it’s a generation thing
    LOL
    Semper Fi

  • I carry a relatively cheap but durable liner lock knife on me at all times. It's got a cheesy comic book zombie design on the scales but it's probably the most durable knife I've ever owned I purchased it when I was 25 for 15 dollars at a surplus store and it's been both a great self defense tool and a great thing to have for utility. Those bluetooth airpods are the dumbest thing I've ever seen, but I carry folding bluetooth headphones, which also get a hell of a lot more battery life(something like 20 hours). Watches are kind of pointless in the modern day but I'm looking at getting a waterproof smartwatch. I keep a turned wooden pen in my peacoat for any time I have to sign paperwork, and I also keep a couple of enameled lapel pins on that coat. I also like to keep a cigarette case at times, with sealed compartments, one for marijuana(pain and anxiety treatment) and one for cigarillos(socializing) or occasionally small cigars(relaxing).

  • Awesome video!

  • Please do not promote Vincero. You know yourself that their quality is far from good. Seiko, Casio, Timex – out there are a ton of better watches, even for a better price.
    Dislike from a guy who is usually a big fan of your videos, Antonio.

  • mens watch

    Me : instinctively checks description for sponsor

    Oh Of course it’s vincero again

  • Vincero definitely has no style

  • Nothing "2020" about these tips.

    Breath-spay anyone? Gum can come off as obnoxious, and mints can be distracting when openingng the rapper.

    Two quick spays and you're good to go. Depending on the brand, it can double as hand sanitizer.

  • agree about the headset

  • Antonio, you are simply rocking that sports jacket/blazer.Could you please offer more info about it,at least the name of the texture and the color? Great video by the way, and cograts from Romania!

  • alpham. made a video about erabuds are not accessories, just a tool… he even losed his mind about it😂

  • Can someone drop a Link to that Key looking multi-tool…looks awesome and so portable.

  • 0:10 …oh…uh…😳 manslaughter count as one???

  • OR WHAT?! Come at me, bro.

  • Headphones earbuds crap in your ears DON'T BE AN ELECTRONIC ZOMBIE! My favorite pin is a Zebra F-301 mostly metal been using them for years.
    Suspenders are nice but you need the button style.
    Hat is a company Ball cap.
    A hard hat. OHSA requirement
    Or a British drivers cap.

  • Antonio you forgot a 9mm gun as part of your essential

  • I don’t think women are allowed to write amazing documents

  • Guys, gents, don't buy anything Chinese.

  • Most needed accessory: Hand Sanitizer

  • I would agree wireless earbuds are pretty essential but driving with ear buds is illegal don’t do it

  • Advice for people particularly in the UK…….don’t carry knives. It can mean a prison sentence.

  • I agree with bluetooth headsets, watches, pens (fountain pens), pins (business specially), rings, pocket squares and hats (it works)

  • I carry a gerber dime which is a tiny multitool. Cannot carry my gerber powerframe anymore because locking blades are illegal here.

  • Itchy throat, might be corona symptom. Keep safe brother.

  • I am Greek Orthodox 🙂 We wear the ring the same way

  • I used to carry a 14k gold cross pen set when wearing suits. After losing 1 or two I stopped.

  • If you think that while on an important call, I'll walk into an elevator and be silent; You've lost your damn mind. Btw a Handkerchief trumps a Pin any day of the week IMO

  • In my opinion people don’t take notice of their surroundings with and without wireless earbuds !

  • 0:01 do you have coronavirus

  • Coughing? Corona ALERT! 😂

  • You WE'RE a Marine? Lad, once a Marine always a Marine. 20 push ups now jug head, expect it on video soon.

  • “You can use it as a weapon” Bloody hell, where do you live?

  • *sigh*….Vincero watches again……

  • AGREE Headphones are must have.

  • I like how you explain the accessories in the description that way I don't have to watch the entire video and it saves time

  • First thing on the list is a pocket knife 😂😂

  • You forgot just one thing for your Spring 2020 essentials Antonio…. That's you're Coronavirus Mask…. It's a essentially and essential.
    Does Vincero include one in their watch set😉
    Keep up the Great Work.

  • You recommend so many quality products, why vincero!!

  • 1. AR 15
    2. AR 15
    3. AR 15
    4. AR 15…

    you get the picture..

  • Although vincero isn’t terrible, they are fashion watches, they may look very cool, but i would never buy one beacause there are many alternatives from real watchmaking brands; bulova, for example, makes awesome looking watches, has many heritage, +100 year old american company, or any low to mid-range price seiko, or the russian watches vostok which are very durable, i would even recommend the invicta pro diver, for aprox 100 dolars or less you can get a pretty darn cool looking watch, with a real mechanical movent (such as with bulova, seiko or vostok) that is capable to go diving or/and to the beach.

  • Please stop endorsing Vincero. It cheapens your brand.

  • A wrist watch eh.. But the very first thing you mentiond in your other video (7 essentials that are becoming OUTDATED) is wrist watch.. so.. which one?

  • I enjoyed this! I check luggage to keep a Swiss Army Knife for my keychain. I've started to lose too many quality pens, and regret that. I remember men of my father's generation sniffing their boutonnieres. After much effort to minimize the plastic in my wallet, I've settled on an ID Card Case and paper-clip-shaped money clip.

  • You forgot garter straps. They keep your socks pulled up and your shirt looking neat and tucked in. Wear them every Sunday.

  • @RMRS every man should have a proper full size black umbrella. not a collapsible umbrella that fits in a purse or your kids school backpack. not a red or yellow or checkered or polka dotted umbrella. grown up men carry full size black umbrellas.

  • Must have accessories in 2020 are….face mask, lysol and hand sanitizer

  • No 1 essential, year in year out, the firearm..

  • please please ! stop recommending those Crappy Watches!! they are cheap and disgusting !. you can buy alot better for those prices, those Vincero watches have no respect for horology or for fine design. enough is enough..you, alpha m and jose recommand shit watches and walk around everyday with AP's rolex omega etc with the money those nothing china made watches pay you, stop tricking your viewers who look up to you for advise..there are plenty of better time pieces out there for the same amount of money or less with real design,heritage, movement and yes! brand name..even if you are selling something at least make sure that its good!…the people who watch your videos everyday deserve better advise

  • Na, bro, fck all of those unnecessary things.
    I don't think it's the right time for thinking about style when the world is going to hell.

  • It's really depressing that You're endorsing these crap watches.

  • What would you recommend about sun glasses to those who already wears glasses, for example I wear negative power ???

  • Also what you think about smart watch or smart bands instead of traditional ones,? I am very confused about it.

  • Most of the stuff mentioned here is pretty basic stuff, like watches, sunglasses, cufflinks, money-clip, high-end pen, etc. If you need to be taught that in a YouTube video, then there's actually no hope left for you.

    However, the generation that grows with smartphones doesn't understand the requirement of a proper watch. Plus, the watch adverts are getting tiring.

    Also, I think an essential item to keep (more to appear neat than stylish) is a pocket comb.

    Finally, totally not a fan of wearing any jewellery other than a symbolic ring, as long as it's not a huge one.

  • When he said next up, watches i know he was gonna talk about Vincero🙄Man we tired of this !We want somethin' else

  • Sounds good

  • Given the current situation none of those things are helpful.

  • Many articles of mens jewelry is not thought of as jewelry such as bolo ties or western belts.

  • Brace suspenders are legit. Wear them with my suits daily!

  • I would agree on the money clip and business card holder. I do have a business card holder though hardly use it. I do have to say though a tie clip should be on the list. It stands out for one thing and second you can match them to your metals like the cuff links, watches, jewelry, belt, etc. Also it gets quite the attention as I wear one on a daily basis and see it first hand.

  • Bluetooth headphones are a must!!!

  • Leatherman. Again. The Leatherman. In these times? Absolute must-have for man walking around with a set. As a LEO I have saved lives with the product and fixed my kids bike. One time lifetime purchase with best warranty of any competitor. Great video brother.

  • I use headphones. And a watch. I enjoy jewelry rings bracelets. Necklaces. Interesting Antonio. I like sunglasses. I don't wear cufflinks. I wear dress shirts. That have regular. Cuffs.

  • Love your videos!!! Those watches look huge tho even on my tablet. Keep up the vids!!!

  • You lost me at Vincero

  • Nice sir everything need sir

  • Cardclips? Sticking with my wallet or I probably needs at least three of them to fit them all.
    And watches it’s all for mechanic pocket watches. In a chain or with a leather watch strap around my wrist.

  • Unfortunately the diver isn't listed

  • VinSHITo 🤢🤮

  • With a watch it is easier and faster for checking the time that a cell phone

  • Come and check my channel guys i got the best knots for TIES!!

  • Now you guys know how to be stylish during quarantine.

  • So nice to see an Italian man spreading elegance in a world of boys in tank tops and flip flops. Greetings from Italy

  • Where can I get a pocket square like that?

  • Vincero watches are of low quality, everyone in the watch world knows that. Why would you let them sponsor you?

  • When he said watches, I knew Vincero was the sponsor.

  • How can I start?

    I'm into classic men's wear and style.
    But I'm 22 and I'm in college. I think it's way over the top to walk into a lecture with a suit.. Even if it's a simple outfit.
    I wish I would already work in a consulting office where I could pull one of these beautiful outfits off….

    Any advice?

  • How about a gun?

  • Agree, gotta have my ear buds
