Accessory sourcing in the Grand Bazaar

Fresh from our trip to Istanbul, we just had to tell you about the aladdin’s cave that is the Grand Bazaar.  You can literally find everything you could ever imagine from beads, gemstones, wiring, leathers, metals, and… fake man bags.  The place is full to the brim of these embellishment and with over 4,000 shops we would highly recommend a visit.

Thanks must go to our friends at Time Out who put together a rather brilliant city tour, including some of the best roof top cocktail bars.  A ginger martini at 360 is a must.

Welcome to Maketh The Man, a lifestyle and travel blog by Callum Watt and Anton Welcome.

Maketh The Man launched in 2010 as a home to showcase male jewellery. From the best chunky necklaces to our favourite signet rings. Whilst the Mark Twain quote does say "Clothes maketh the man", we actually think its the finer details that make an outfit really pop. Hence why we decided to focus our attention on how to accessorize your wardrobe.

We quickly expanded our coverage to include all accessories from the best footwear, to the most stylish bags and pocket squares.

Today Maketh The Man has grown to be one of the UKs top male lifestyle blogs covering a range of different categories. From the greatest holiday destinations to the tastiest cocktail or finest whisky recommendations, with a healthy dose of technology and grooming thrown in.
