For the man that needs no introduction but his name and his work, we turn to Johnny Cash for style inspiration. While many performers in the 1970s were wearing cowboy boots and rhinestones, Johnny stood out with his all-black ensembles. In the beginning, Johnny and his band members had to scrounge up something they all had in common, the only thing they had in common: the black shirt. Later down the line they met success, but Johnny noted in his song, “The Man In Black” that he continued to dress intentionally for those that were not being represented or could not represent themselves: those that are hungry, neglected, old, victims of the war, sick, or forgotten. Johnny wore black off stage as well, separate from the political statement. At some point, the US Navy’s all black winter blue uniforms were called “Johnny Cashes.”
So in honor of Johnny, and the timelessness of black, we curated few pieces that honor both the timelessness and integrity of the choice to wear black.
WWJCD? What Would Johnny Cash do? Wear one of our roulette buckles. Pair it with our engraved money clip, and finish it off with some Bones cufflinks.
I love the money clip but my husband has used the same one for twenty years and will continue to do so until it breaks or he loses it.
I love these cuff links! I’m so excited that Vogt them as earrings now!
