The Minimalistic Gent advocates for quality over quantity on all purchases. Careful and planned purchases usually lead to greater returns on the joy that you receive from an item. To help inform you fellow gents on what to look for in these high end purchases, we compiled this list of things to look for. These are the three reasons you should buy items from a luxury brand:
1. Exceptional Quality
The best quality items are made from the best materials by skilled artisans. Clearly stated, hand made items are something we suggest going for. Luxury brands that stand behind their handmade products are usually an excellent place to start when searching for breathtaking items. We recommend these Salvatore Ferragamo loafers which are handmade in Italy. The quality and comfort of these types of loafers are of a high caliber and the resiliency of the materials will leave you happy for a long time!
2. Limited Quantity
Exclusivity usually helps in the aspect of boosting your love of an item. A limited run of production makes the demand for items sky rocket which will further your appreciation for the object. Brand recognition can help in networking opportunities to help exude the feeling of class that you want to portray, and attentive gents will definitely notice. A Bourbon connoisseur’s dream is the Old Rip Van Winkle 25 year-old bourbon. With only 710 bottles made in existence, this extremely aged bourbon would make for the ultimate party drink with a guest. Exclusivity at this level ensures that the experience of drinking this bourbon can never be replicated. Therefore, a limited run on items can increase the worthiness of an item exponentially!
3. Outstanding Value
Even items that are not exclusive can bring someone immense value if you really enjoy the item or if it serves a unique purpose. The value you find in the object needs to be titanic or it is not the item for you. Since we are on a path of minimizing as much as possible, there is no room for items that serve no value. The cost of the item should be greatly outweighed by the disproportionate value you receive from owning this item. We love our luxury watches at the Minimalistic Gent, and we would recommend the Rolex Yacht-Master II in yellow gold as a watch that will not only make you feel world class but show it to the world as well!
Luxury brands can be quite expensive, but making wise choices is imperative to ensure your hard-earned money goes to outstanding products. We here at the Minimalistic Gent are extremely big on spending extra for items that can last a lifetime or offer one of a kind experiences.
