Made to Measure: wrist taking men's jewellery

The Miami-based label Miansai has a range of accessories and we found some terrific bracelets that will look smart on your wrist, with or without your watch.

We all shudder upon hearing the term "man jewellery" – so the young Miami-based label Miansai is a welcome addition to the paltry field of men's accessories, particularly the world of wristdom. Founded by the 23-year-old former model Michael Saiger, Miansai makes understated, carefully crafted bracelets that a man of any age can pull off. "Every piece has its own rich history," says Saiger, whose durable designs were inspired by childhood memories at his mother's antique shop.
