need right now: the wide silver cuff

I have been fixated on the idea of having a really wide silver cuff ever since I tried on Mimi’s (of Brook and Lyn) over brunch in New York.
In matte+shiny silver embossed with a Keith Haring-esque pattern, this pliable extra-wide vintage silver cuff is terribly close to being the perfect wide silver cuff for me, but alas, it belongs to someone else.
She wears it with a navy Issey Miyake Pleats Please coat that I might even consider wearing myself.
I think the wideness of the silver cuff makes it less of a piece of jewelry and more armor-like, and that’s what makes it work for men. I might even try wearing two similar, but not identical, silver cuffs on each wrist for a full-on urban warrior vibe.
(famous bearded fellow from The Sartorialist) He wears it well.
I like how the shape of this Where The Wild Things Are x Opening Ceremony x Pamela Love cuff (talk about a collaboration!) echoes that of a crown; it’s more kingly than warrior-like.
I might just consider.

Do check out the Brook and Lyn boutique, they constantly stock vintage jewelry that I could see working well on both men and women.

    I got a simple plain silver cuff from ebay a while back for £5 buy it now! I bet there is still something on ebay at that price, I got my inspiration from Thierry Mugler, however.
