Norsk Mand Accessories
Accessorising: it’s a cultural thing. Bags in particular sit on a sliding scale of acceptability that is far less forgiving in some areas of the world.
Take a stroll around Milan (every affording man should) and discover a fascinating showcase of different styles. From cross body to clutches, totes to satchels – a true Italian sartorialist is rarely seen without his favourite arm candy.
In some postcodes of London, the sight is often quite the contrary. The stiffer English gentleman dreads the thought of even a slightly more outrageous shopper. It would appear that the only acceptable and desirable complement to their looks is a wallet, a card holder and a high-tech gadget, at best.
If you too think that less is more then you might want to take a look at the Norsk Mand accessory collection. The Copenhagen-based brand provides the perfect balance between the heritages of the rough north with the innovation of the modern age. Every single piece is handmade, hand cut and realised with full-grain vegetable-tanned leather from New Zeeland, organically treated in Italy.
The old adage has it that good things take time and, many add, they are worth the wait. This is no less true here. As days pass, the leather will become darker, softer and richer in texture. Your everyday life, habits and special memories – a few drops of rain, sweaty palms on a first date, coffee stains before your 9:00AM meeting – will most definitely leave their mark on your new favourite accessory, making it even more unique, personal, your own.
You can shop the collection now over on the Norsk Mand website.
