Top Men’s Accessories Under $100

Accessories may seem like a small thing but they’re one of my favorite ways to mix up your look and add some extra personality in a very affordable way. Whether you’re adding a new tie to your rotation, trying out a new watch or piece of jewelry, or bringing in something more utilitarian like a key holder, these extra touches to your personal style will go a long way.

With that in mind, here are my favorite men’s accessories under $100!

Tie Bar – The Tie Bar

A tie bar is great because it’s both utilitarian and stylish. It’s a small touch but you can mix and match with different colors, finishes, and styles to add just a bit of personality to your tie game.

 

Knit Tie – The Tie Bar

Speaking of ties, I love the texture and look of a knit tie because it’s just a bit different from the norm.  Plus, because of look and design, knit ties crossover to more casual looks very easily, so try pairing them with a blazer and denim or an oxford and chinos.

Silver Cuff – Topman

A silver cuff is a great place to start with men’s jewelry because it’s simple and not too over-the-top. Just make sure you keep it low key and only wear one piece of jewelry at a time. 

 

Brown Frame Sunglasses – Warby Parker

I love the colored clear-framed sunglass styles that are happening right now.  They’re definitely different enough to add something new to your look but not so bold as to be distracting. Don’t forget to check out my guide to finding the right frame for your face shape!

 

Blue Frame Sunglasses – Warby Parker

As I mentioned above, clear-framed sunglasses are my favorite type of eyewear right now.  Stick with a classic frame shape and you’ll hit just the right balance of modern and timeless.

 

Key Holder – Bellroy

Since I’m sure some of you have that bulky, disorganized key ring, I recommend this key holder as a simple, smart way to keep your keys organized in a stylish way.

 

Wallet – Bellroy

Just like the key holder above, Bellroy has a knack for making stylish leather goods that are the perfect mix of minimal design and high-quality materials. Their Low Down wallet is a great pared-down choice.

 

Slim Phone Case – Elago

Finding a phone case that’s both classy and protective is tough but Elago really nails it.  They’re remarkably slim and minimal but still offer a great fit and protection, no matter what type of phone you have.

 

Watch – Timex Weekender

Despite its name, the Times Weekender is the perfect budget-friendly watch for any day of the week.  In addition to being both high-quality and very affordable, it’s classic design works well with any wardrobe choice, casual or dressy.

 

Watch Straps – Suede, Perlon, Leather, and NATO-Style

Now that you’ve got a great watch you can further mix up your look by swapping out different watch straps. Add a leather or suede one for a polished look or try nylon and perlon for something more sporty.  Buy a few and switch them up depending on your mood, it’s easy and fun.

Backpack – KNOMO London Holborn Southampton Backpack

Finding a good backpack isn’t easy, and finding an affordable one is even tougher. That’s why I love this one from Knomo so much, it’s versatile and stylish without being too bulky, something that’s really tough to find at such a great price point.

Holiday Gifts Under $50 For Him

This season, I wanted to break up my annual gift guides by price and gender, so in this one, I want to talk about the gifts under $50 for the various men in your life. 

Keyring Multi-Tool

Every man will find this handy, regardless of his age or occupation. I like it because it easily fits on a keyring and is super convenient.

$35 – Leatherman Squirt PS4

Pocket Pen

Well designed, pocketable, and something most men don’t think about it but use more often than they’d think.

$20 – Fisher Space Pen

 

Cigar Pack

A humidity sealed pack with two cigars, a cutter, and matches for the aficionado, or those who’ve yet to be initiated into the cigar world. You can pick these up as either single purchases, or a part of a monthly subscription. Dorian has spoken to the CEO a few times and has sampled a few of their packages and says they’re top-notch.

$30 – Cigar Pack (2 cigars)

 

Leather Keryring

This unique leather keyring will keep up to 7 keys all organized and silent within its cowhide leather sheath in your pocket. Like I mentioned in my Accessory Essentials Series, use quality items and you’ll thank yourself (or the man you give this to will thank you, hopefully).

$45 – Orbitkey Keyring

 

Nose & Ear Hair Trimmer

It’s one of those things that most men don’t think of buying for themselves but will use way more often when they actually have it in their grooming kit. It seems weird, but a lot of clients have commented about it being one of the best sleeper-hit style gifts they’ve ever received.

$20 – Panasonic Trimmer

 

Classic Watch

Beautiful, classic styling and a great price – you can’t go wrong. I’ve covered this and many, many other watches in my best men’s watches guide.

$35 – Timex Weekender Watch

 

Braided Charging Cables

Charging cables can be a boring necessity, or they can be a classy addition to a man’s Everyday Carry. I’d suggest getting a 10ft cable – the extra length comes in way more handy than you’d think.

$10 to $50 – Native Union

 

High Quality Socks

One might think this is a boring choice, but if you haven’t tried the best men’s socks yourself, you’d be dead wrong. Give the gift of amazing comfort and a lifetime warranty with these awesome socks.

$10 to $40 – Darn Tough Socks

 

Coffee & Espresso Maker

Hailed as one of the best ways to make a single serving coffee, I’ve gifted this to quite a few people who are into coffee and it’s been a success every time.

$25 – Aeropress Coffee & Espresso Maker
