I’ve long considered men’s jewelry tacky. But my friend Justin needed help: After finally ditching his worn-out leather necklace, he wanted something a little classier. I had recently seen some bracelets in the window at American Eagle Outfitters. Feeling out of place amid the sea of teenage boys and girls, I found a leather bracelet with a rough-hewn metal cross. The adjustable strap and weathered metal had a nice antique look that would fit Justin's laid-back style—and you would never know that it cost under $10! 485 Fifth Ave., nr. 42nd St.; 212-542-4900.
