Ethnic Ethos Men's Jewelry

I’m really not sure what I think about this men’s jewelry collection from Ethos.

On the one hand, I like the ethnic quality, use of materials, and unusual shape combinations. But, on the other, it comes off as a little “clunky.” Maybe it’s also that I’m not attracted to the unshaven, needs a shower….er…earthy type of guy.

What do you think? Stylish? Or just too far out there for your man?

Obviously, some in the entertainment industry enjoy wearing this jewelry, which by the way, is no available at Barneys New York. From a company press release:

Ethos, whose trendsetting fashion accessories were a hit at last spring’s Cannes Film Festival, introduced its “Ethos Men’s Collection” recently in Barneys New York. The composition of the pieces, which are hand made in Paris by a Senegalese artisan, incorporates Ethos signature mix of beautiful and exotic materials such zebu bone from Kenya; leather amulettes, Ethiopia; ebony and cocoa shells Mali; hippopotamus horn, Ivory Coast; bronze and glass Ghana; and antique shells and bakelite from Nigeria.

After a chance viewing of the women’s collection, Barneys senior men’s buyer, Jay Bell, challenged Ethos to design a collection that would appeal to the aesthetic of Barneys special yet demanding clientele. The result is both a timeless and versatile collection. “These are culturally- significant statement pieces that also correlate with today’s fashion stories,” asserts Bell.

    Allen Iverson broke out his newest signature shoe, the Reebok Answer XII, during the first game between the Buy Reebok Answer XII Invictus Shoes in November 2008.
    The Reebok Answer XII Invictus On Sale basketball shoe features a leather upper with internal mock bootie construction that provides maximum comfort.
    The Nike zoom BB IIreceived its design cues from Japanese-born Reebok designer Nike Zoom BB II Basketball Shoes, who also designed the Answer X. Both Winfield and Kanata have been trading off between the past three Buy Cheap Nike Zoom BB II Men’s Basketball shoes to allow for a longer design window and more attention to the development process. It could be argued that Iverson’s series lost its gusto during the VI to IX era. Luckily, for Iverson and his fans, the line has been in good hands the past three years.
