Men who enjoy fashion are always on the lookout for the next innovative product that stands out from the crowd. This becomes something of a quest for some people and for good reason. An extraordinary life requires time and effort, as does extraordinary style. Check out the following three fashion accessories that can elevate men's fashion from average to outstanding: ties, shoes, and watches.

Tie it Up
Finding the perfect tie for every occasion and outfit requires the same effort of a man as does finding the perfect purse or clutch for a woman. There are many different styles, materials, and colors from which to choose. A Hermès silk tie has a classic elegance that many men gravitate towards when looking for something to take their tie game to the next level. The stylistically adventurous may even rock a bow tie to set themselves apart. However, there has been very little to truly make wearing a tie a unique experience. It has been difficult to find something remarkable enough to be noteworthy.

Until recently, that is. Hex Tie has unveiled its new Diamante Metal Tie made of matte black polymers that scream understated high-tech fashion. This is one of the first revolutionary concepts to hit the tie scene and is a must have for anyone who has been frustrated with the lack of innovation in the industry thus far.

Step Out in Style
It is slightly easier to find shoes that authentically reflect one's personal taste. There are far more styles, colors, and materials with which to work with, and designers have recently begun making a concentrated effort to provide men with as many options as women. Most men first become interested in stepping up their shoe style with those shoes which will be worn to work or out on a date. However, sports and outdoor footwear has been moving towards cult fashion status in recent years.

One of the most popular brands in athletic footwear is Reebok. Interestingly, cult favorites from past decades have been returning as drool-worthy fashion statement pieces. One example of this is the newly launched Vetements x Reebok Sneakers. These shoes have a long and complicated fashion pedigree and that makes them even more desirable.

Watch Out
The final piece in cultivating a distinguished style regardless of environment is the type of watch one wears. Most men start out with a gorgeous signature watch from an established brand like Rolex, Cartier, or Omega. Each of these admittedly has a stunning collection that can elevate an entire outfit. But for many fashion forward men this simply isn't enough.

One of the most unique watches currently on the market has a band and face made entirely of wood. This lends an elegant rustic charm to what might otherwise appear to be a conventional suit or outfit. It's difficult for modern men to advertise their masculinity without appearing to be brash, but gorgeously-styled Jord wood watches manage to accomplish the task brilliantly.

Any man who truly considers himself a trendsetter must look beyond the expected and dare to be different. A modern art tie, retro pair of shoes, and an alchemical mix of modern and rustic on one's wrist are all excellent ways to create a style that is both unique and timeless.
