The Edwardian man’s accessories included a pair of suspenders (also called braces) in solid or vertical stripe elastic webbing with leather buttonholes on the tips. He would also carry a pocket watch on a chain and keep it tucked into his suit vest pocket. In his suit jacket was a pocket square. Leather gloves were worn for all outdoor occasions while fabric gloves were used for indoor parties. Fancy dressers might have worn wool shoe spats to keep their Oxfords clean. A walking cane or rolled umbrella was also a fashion accessory more than a personal assistance device.
These new accessories work well for the Edwardian era style. Adding one of more of these Edwardian men’s accessories to your costume will transform you from a modern man to a turn of the century gentleman.
