This story is part of our year-end series this year in gear, a compilation of the highlights of 2021.
Accessories are accessories – hats, sunglasses, jewelry, perfume, headbands, belts, you name it. It’s meant to be fun, and it serves as a way to express yourself even in company settings. Can’t wear your favorite shirt to the office (if you’re still going there)? Try a ring or some tinted sunglasses for the ride. The options are endless, but these were some of our favorite accessories released this year.
Craighill Radial Cuff
This simple copper cuff has a slightly beveled edge and comes in five different fits, designed to reflect the particular oval shape of the wrist. The minimalist design will complement a range of styles, and is perfect for jewelry aficionados and newcomers alike.

Mr. Green x Aquila Rose Tinted Lenses for Red Eyes Philosophy Glasses
The Los Angeles-based Mister Green Life Store loves the cannabis shop next door. From the General Psychedelics line in focus to their “Rose Tinted Lenses for Red Eyes” collaboration with Akila, they’re always slipping in reminders that they’re 420 friends. The second installment of the aforementioned extension release, dubbed Philosophy, is no exception. He takes cues from the styles worn by jazz musicians and “cultural revolutionaries,” all while creating his own unique look.

Warby Parker x The Paris Review Roland
I’ve seen a lot of collaborations between print and brands: The New York Times concept store with Knickerbocker; Our own cooperation with Taylor Stitch; Monocle clothing line with A Kind of Guise. They are all impressively cool, and Warby Parker x The Paris Review is no exception. Buzz boy? maybe. But I wear glasses And I read The Paris Review. I think this is up my alley.
the price: $95
Gramsci x Brain Dead Bucket Hat
Gramicci and Brain Dead’s collaborative bucket hat features a color combination, and a redesigned duo text logo on the brim. It’s made from 100 percent cotton and is available in one size.

Bandit gangs “concrete jungle”
Bandits Bandanas are made from organic cotton in a Fair Trade certified facility in India. The brand’s designs feature work from different artists – like this one from Brooklyn-based tattoo artist Rosa Bluestone Bear. On top of being one of the coolest bands you can have, 10 percent of the proceeds go to support a charity of the artist’s choice (in this case Food Bank 4 NYC).

This sold out quickly. In fact, all six of the made-to-order New York made-to-measure clothing styles released this week are all but gone in a matter of hours. They were part of an ongoing series – called Edition – of special editions launched by the brand. The 004 version was “a series of vintage FOCA sunglasses. Manufactured in Cadore, Italy in the 1960s. Curated and prepared in collaboration with Lucio Stramare and his talented team of restorers.”
the price: $275

Knickerbocker x Good Art Hlywd Hat 10 Gallon
Definitely, surely, surely. I hear you. What does the incense holder have to do with elegance? Well, this one was made by jeweler Good Art Hlywd in a limited number – only 25, to be exact. They’re available via Knickerbocker, whether to carry an incense stick or to hold your cigarette (or knuckle).

Oftentimes, the most obvious upgrade to your everyday wardrobe comes with a softer, sleeker sock. Drake’s sports a striped iteration made from 100% ribbed cotton. (By the way, get three pairs for $60.)

Jack Marie Mag x Jeff Goldblum Jeff Shadow 2
The co-op sunglasses of Jeff Goldblum and Jack Marie Mag sold out quickly. (There were only 500 pairs.) Black on the front but made of translucent acetate and precious gold wire on the sides, it’s a stunning set of frames that has proven thinner – said to be tailored – than most. It’s an ode to Goldblum style, but it’s also totally JMM-flexible.
