The Goodness of...Nylon Watch Straps

| Posted in | Posted on


Guys kind of get the short end of the stick when it comes to jewelry (and accessories in general). How to by stylish without looking completely ridiculous? Move too far into cuff bracelet or dog tag territory and you may as well be wearing an Ed Hardy t-shirt that says "royal douche" on the back. Sure, we can rock a wedding (or purity!) ring, an ear piercing or maybe a small (yet masculine) cross necklace, but let's face it, our options for stylish accessorization are just more limited than the ladies. 

This is why I got turned on to nylon watch straps. They're fairly cheap, durable, and the perfect combination of rugged and preppy, plus you can change them out whenever you feel like it to match your mood or your outfit. Plus, it doesn't scream "look at me!" And since not everyone's caught on to this sartorial style yet, you can rock this look with the quiet confidence of knowing you're a trend setter, not a trend follower.

 I have amassed a small collection of about a dozen different straps and I consistently get compliments whenever I wear them, particularly the striped ones and the neon orange one.  They make my cheap-o Timex watch look a lot more expensive and stylish than it really is. 

There's several places where nylon watch bands can be found these days, such as J. Crew (where they're on sale right now two for $30). But my favorite resource is, where you choose any five nylon watch straps from a vast array of 90 choices for just $29.95. What an incredible value! They even have straps to match team colors. 

Ladies, if you're looking for the perfect, inexpensive gift to amp up your guy's style, pick him up a nylon watch strap. He won't be disappointed.

That's a really good website for bands, eBay is surprisingly more expensive.
