Now and Men

The more options you have, the harder it is to make a decision.

Which is why most men would sooner stab themselves in the eye with a collar stay than walk into a shopping mall.

And that, in a correlative nutshell, is the reason to shop at Men in Cities, where they curate and sell nine dapper accessories each month.

That’s it. Nine pieces, every month. $39.99 each. Quite manageable. Makes deciding what to buy very simple.

“You don’t have to be Johnny Depp or Keith Richards,” says Yuvi Alpert, the site’s founder. “Just tweak the details to improve your look.”

This month’s theme: “Men in Beige,” which includes hand-stitched leather passport cases, textured cotton ties and the woven belt you should be wearing all summer. Oh, and this bracelet. We are dealing with a jewelry maker, after all.

MIC also collabs with rakish NYC men-about-town – from chefs to record label owners – on small capsule collections of one-to-three limited-edition items, like jaunty patterned ties or rugged gunmetal whistle necklaces.

Go now. Be the decider.

Nota bene: sign up for MIC’s free Ambassador program and you’ll get not only a monthly reminder when new items go live, but ten bucks off every item as well.
