Are You A "Tusk" Man Or A "Relic" Man?

Are You A "Tusk" Man Or A "Relic" Man?

Relic or Tusk? That is the Question. At first glance the Relic and Tusk necklaces look similar.  As the designer, even I concede that some confusion may be warranted.  After all, each necklace sports a similar sleek, organic amulet crafted from steel and offered in four fashionable colors.  And each emits a modern vibe deeply rooted in prehistoric artistry.  (Refer to the prehistoric art of the Lascaux caves if you’d like to adventure into a deeper dive of the artistry of our ancient ancestors.)

But to the Modern Hunter, known for his penchant for hunting down exactly the aesthetic that expresses the essence of his primal nature, there is much to consider.  The question of Relic or Tusk comes down to the question of leather strap or steel chain.  To adequately contemplate this dilemma includes considering aesthetic, lifestyle, and image.

The Relic is for you if you:

  • Regularly show off your style during sweaty workouts
  • Are prone to jumping into random bodies of water without notice
  • Can’t be bothered to de-accessorize for a shower
  • Are generally, well, a man of steel

The Tusk is for you if you:

  • Appreciate the organic nature of leather
  • Know the difference between an Oxford and a Derby
  • Didn’t know the difference between an Oxford and a Derby and just paused to Google it
  • Remove your watch before a shower and your rings before a brawl

It all comes down to you.  What do you say?  Relic or Tusk?  Hint:  BOTH is a perfectly acceptable answer!

Minimalism is about having everything you want and nothing you don't. It's both a way of life and a design principle.

What do you truly love? What does luxury mean to you? Minimal doesn't mean Spartan. It isn't about living without. It's about indulging in what you love. Only you can define what that is . . . travel to a foreign land, sipping your favorite scotch by the fire, an original piece of art, court side seats . . . whatever makes your heart smile even when nobody else understands why.
