Nigerian menswear blogger, Ifeanyi Okafor Jr. who is known for his expert take on gentlemen style and grooming is back with another splendid article on the gentleman’s essential timepiece also known as, the Pocket Watch.

He writes:

To provide others with the assertion that you have an air of class and distinction, knowing the right men’s jewellery to wear as an important part of your outfit is the key to success.

Pocket watches are a great way to spice up your style. Its simplistic complexity and refined elegance makes it an attractive timepiece. Pocket watches were intended for women to wear but has now become known as the gentleman’s timepiece. It’s perfect to wear with formal wear in cases where it’s inappropriate to wear a wristwatch or pull out your mobile phone.

The traditional way to wear a pocket watch is attached to a chain. There are three chain types that come in different lengths and some with fancy bars and stylish designs. There are three types of attachments – a bolt ring, an albert T-bar and a belt loop. I’m wearing the belt loop chain also known as the belt bar chain. It’s worn attached to the bell loop of our trousers or jeans. They’re used when you want to carry the pocket watch in the side pocket of your trousers than the jacket or waistcoat.

If you intend to add a dash of old-fashioned panache to a suit or vest, the pocket watch is your go to accessory.
