Sault is perfect for the real New England man. It embodies the classic, casual look so many have come to associate with New England. The store carries a wonderful selection of men’s accessories, clothing and home goods- anything that just screams “I have a beach house on the Cape.” You’ll find everything from men’s jewelry, to wallets to manly bath products. It is a true one-stop shopping experience.

Usually when you hear someone raving about Bodega, they’re talking about the sneaker selection. And yes, the selection of footwear at Bodega is great. But the shop also carries an amazing collection of other men’s accessories as well. Belts, wallets, hats, you name it. If you want it, Bodega has it. And of course, everyone loves feeling “in the know” when shopping at Bodega. Don’t be fooled when you first walk in the shop, head on back to the “secret” store and you’ll be amazed at what it has to offer.

If you’re looking for the men’s accessory item you have seen absolutely everyone wearing, keep looking. If you want something before everyone has it, come to Caramelo Clothing Company. If you want something eclectic and unique that you just won’t find anywhere else, again, come to Caramelo Clothing Company. This brand new shop is one of Jamaica Plain’s hidden gems. Although only open for the past year, it has already made a name for itself as the place to go for men’s accessories. And if the great selection and high quality don’t keep you coming back for more, the friendly staff certainly will.

Habit
703 E. Broadway
South Boston, MA 02127
(617) 269-1998

No one who has stopped in at Habit will be surprised to find it on this list. Habit, a Best of Boston award winner, has been wowing local customers for years. The shop carries clothing for both men and women, but the men’s accessory department is really worth raving about. But its biggest draw is its prices. You won’t believe the great deals to be found. However, don’t think that means that the quality is lacking. Habit is one of the few cases where you get much more than what you pay for.

Motley likes to say that it started with the idea of having a store filled with just about anything as long as it was fun and affordable. Today the store stays true to its aim, but it has managed to create a great selection of men’s accessories. If you don’t find what you like one day, just head back in another. The collection at Motley is always changing. The collection tends towards trendy, quirky and fun, but that doesn’t mean you won’t find some great wardrobe staples on the shelves, too.
