A Guide To Wearing Chains


Among men’s jewelry, necklaces are considered the hardest items to wear. As a matter of fact, any man can wear a necklace with style. All you need to do is to follow some simple guides.

The precious metal is always preferable when choosing necklaces for men. And sterling silver is the most popular choice for its charming luster, versatility and reasonable price.

Men’s Chains Width
Try to choose a chain that fits your size. If you are a slim guy, then slim chains between 2 mm and 4 mm will fit you well. If you have a large size and thick neck, wider chains may look more proportional.

Men’s Chains Length
The length of a chain necklace affects your overall style, especially the type of shirts you wear. Whether it hangs above the shirt or hide underneath will give you a totally different look. We have a collection of men’s chain necklace ranging from 16 inches to 32 inches.

16”-18”: Shortest, choker-style chains for men, falling just around the base of the neck. They usually hang above a low collar and people can see the whole chain.

20”-24”: The most common lengths for men’s chain necklaces. They can be worn under a T-shirt or a button-down shirt, leaving most of the links visible with the open collar.

26”-32”: The relatively long lengths that will fall around the sternum. They can be worn outside of a shirt, usually without any pendant.

Collar Chains

A collar chain is a small piece of jewelry that connects the tips of a shirt’s collar. Collar chains may be small, but they can change the entire tone of your look. If you want to wear a collar chain, there are a few things you should consider in order to get great sartorial results.

Of course, the first thing you want to think about when wearing a collar chain is what it is going to look like. Collar chains are highly visible, given that they are placed right at your neck, which is visually the narrowest part of one’s body, thus, making everything on it look very prominent, especially if it is double if it also features a bar of it is highly decorated. Think of whether the collar chain matches the message you want to convey about yourself and whether it is of high quality – otherwise, it can cheapen your look even if everything else looks great.

Moreover, you should consider the look and proportion of the collar chain itself: the pieces that are pinned to your collar should be in proportion to the width of the chain. Thus, a frail chain is probably best supported by smaller, more fragile ends, while a bulkier chain should be supported by bigger pins.

Like any accessory, collar chains come in different sizes and weights. Some are thicker, others are narrower. The key to choosing the right size for you is to pick something that is proportionate to your body. Men with smaller or narrower frames should wear smaller and thinner collar chains, while bigger men can opt for heavier styles. We would not recommend doing it the other way, as a thin man with a big chain on his neck may look dragged down and a bigger guy with a small chain may look choked. Of course, middle-sized men should go for chains that are not very chunky or very small and also have more leeway to a bit to one direction or the other.
