Unlike women who are bombarded with thousands of fashion options, men are limited, unfortunately, to only a few.
Which is why actor Dingdong Dantes says it's important for a man to make his minimal accessories count.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) on July 12, the former My Beloved star said that a man’s outfit must always be simple but sleek.
“Keep it simple lang. Para sa akin, there are only two significant items that should be seen—one is the watch and the other could be either the shoes or a belt.
“Iyon lang iyong parang accent and that’s it. And even if you’re just in jeans and white shirt, lilitaw iyan.”
At the Cav Wine Bar on Bonifacio High Street, Taguig, where the launch of Swiss watch brand Breitling’s latest collection was held, the stylish star wore exactly that kind of ensemble.
Dingdong donned a checkered shirt and a black velvet blazer combo from Zara Man.
He paired it with denim jeans from Diesel, brown suede boots from John Varvatos, and a Breitling watch called the Chronomat 44 GMT.
This particular piece is made with the same aviation-quality chronograph that the brand is known for.
It is completely made of steel and is designed to look more casual with a genuine leather strap.
It also has a smaller face diameter of 44mm, making it perfect for everyday use and for travel.
TRAVEL MUST-HAVES. Just recently, Dingdong went on vacation to Barcelona, Spain with his girlfriend, actress Marian Rivera.

Every time he travels abroad, he never forgets to wear a watch that provides multiple timezone readings.
Dingdong says, “Iyong watch, siyempre, importante iyan pag nagta-travel, depende kung ano iyong pupuntahan mo.
