Yes, you are over-accessorizing.

This is the sort of photo that gets endlessly reblogged on menswear tumblrs. On the one hand, it exposes a flaw in our Sprezzatura Scale: the wrist junk, surgeon cuffs and creased linen blazer all fall under "sprezzaturrific" or "plausible", but we should have clarified that you can only do ONE of these things at a time. On the other hand, it clearly vindicates the over-accessorization chart, on which this guy scores at least a 12 and possibly as high as 16, depending on watch and eyeglass rope configuration.
