Top Picks: Accessories
Here at Uncle Jack, we know how much accessories can make an outfit and we have built our brand on ensuring that our designs are modern, stylish and able to suit whatever look you are trying to pull off.
Being a local Melbourne label launched by a few mates with big ideas, we love supporting other local labels and pairing Uncle Jack with like-minded businesses to ensure that all of our stylish customers have their finger on the pulse.
Of late we have paired up with Status Empire (www.statusempire.com) in their latest concept – The Gent Society. This annual membership has gathered a top collective of labels to provide weekly discounts and heaps of other offers all year round. Check it out and get on board!
After getting involved with this membership it got me thinking about some of my favourite accessories and has led me to this article, a collection of some of my favourites to pair your favourite Uncle Jack with. Enjoy!
As the days are starting to get longer, the weather warmer and summer creeping up very quickly its time to start getting rid of the hoodies and jackets and start getting those summer kits ready.
A member of the Gent Society, Billy Bones is another local Melbourne label with some of the best looking Fedoras and Beanies getting around.
A perfect staple for your standard summer kit or for that Sunday sesh you swore was only going to be a couple of quiet ones, these Fedoras will have you looking a cracking 10/10!
Pictured is their Salted Caramel, which at a modest $79.95 is a must for all wardrobes out there.

This has got to be one of the coolest accessories I have come across that serves a practical purpose to boot.
The Orbit Key comes in both Leather and Rubber and can hold up to 7 keys. I bought mine with the USB and Bottle Opener add-ons which have saved me in countless situations!
This stylish little thing keeps your keys in a neat, compact fashion to make sure you will never be fumbling around trying to find your house key again.

Solid State Cologne
In a compact little tin, Solid State have produced a wax-based cologne that can fit slimly in your pocket to ensure you’re smelling at the top of your game all day and night.
Perfect for long days at work, when on the go, your travels or a night out, this cologne comes in 3 scents; The Journeyman, Voyager and Wayfarer and from reports “would last ages really” (-@edpearson just a normal guy who once bought it).
At $35 a pop, this product is good bang for your buck and to top it off is another Melbourne label with all products made locally.

Solid State is yet again another member of the Gent Society.
The final member of the Gent Society that gets a plug in this article is Swanky Socks. Swanky Socks will take your look to the next level and give you that little touch to stand out from the crowd.
Socks are in. Done are the days of the plain old sock, instead mix up your kit with a touch of colour. Swanky Socks are one of the leading labels in this trend, with some cool colour combos that will have you looking fresh.
A New Zealand label, Swanky Socks have a membership offer running where for $15 a month you will have a new pair delivered monthly. Sit back, relax and inject some colour into your kit!

I came across Native Union strolling through the streets of Paris on a Europe Trip a couple of years ago, but on a backpackers budget I took the brand down in my notes and followed it up when I got home.
Pictured here is the CLIC Wooden case, the case I have used for quite a while now. Native Union’s products speak for themselves; top quality, stylish and original.
Just take a look at their site and their goal is clear that ‘by combining the finest materials, functional design, and considered details, Native Union creates products with personality, that enhance the way you live with your tech’.
While the CLIC iPhone case is my favourite from their range, some of the other products on offer follow very closely behind. Make sure to check out their Charger Docks and the ‘Anchor’ cables, to see just how good their products are.

How good is it that we have gotten through another winter and approaching the better times of summer! With road-trips, beach days, festivals and everything in between that comes with summer, its time to protect your eyes.
What better way to do that then deck yourself out in a new pair of Raen’s and be looking the part while you’re at it!
Raen has been a favourite of mine for the last couple of years and this year I think I will be grabbing myself a pair of the Remmy 49’s (pictured). Raen’s style is simple but sleek allowing it to work with a range of styles and outfits. Their simple but unique frame designs combined with a range of cool colour combo’s make this label one that stands out from the rest.
