    WONDER WALLET: Carry a wallet that shows you actually care about your finances. The Stewart/Stand Stainless Steel Wallet is woven from super thin stainless steel threads, creating a flexible, durable fabric that looks great and protects you from some types of identity theft.

    TWO-FACED: Belts are one of the least exciting accessories, so there's no reason to collect them just because you need more than one color. A reversible belt, like the one from Kenneth Cole New York, offers versatility, style and simplicity from a single piece of leather, and it comes in three color combinations: black smooth/black pattern, black/brown and black/white.

    SCARF IT DOWN: Women's scarves have gone gauzy and layered, but men would be wise to keep them solid and substantial. Try on this seersucker scarf from Ben Adler in a super warm wool/angora blend that stays masculine in basic black and white stripe and refined knit.

    SANS SLEEVES: Vests are back and looking equally sharp with jeans as they do with suit coats. Venture into this style with a basic button-up vest such as the Grey Self Waistcoat from Topman. The single-breasted style is refined, while the contrast buttons and calico liner take it down a notch for more casual occasions.

    OVER IT: Outerwear is regarded rather casually in San Diego, but few things look sharper than a clean-cut overcoat. Keep yourself warm in the wind and rain with the Marc New York Vaughn Car Coat in black Italian wool and sleek covered zipper. It's nice enough for a tux, but will dress down for any occasion.

    WATCH YOURSELF: Can't decide between the bling-y chrome watch or the rugged sports number? Meet in the middle with the well-balanced Square Rubber Chronograph from Armani Exchange. The sharp, 3-hand chronograph display looks polished, the rubber band keeps it down to earth and the combo of the two make it modern and fresh.

    IN THE SHADE: Classic is back for sunglasses; the hard part is figuring out which classic suits you. The no fail for almost any face and purpose is the Oakley Splinter. They come in brown, blue or black to suit different skin tones, and the comfortable design is almost impossible to beat.
