Still Stylish and Still Pinned
Happily, the additions, clarifications, emendations, and corrections required in regard to Leonard Cohen – Spanish Style offer an opportunity to include these shots from Cozycot, which describes itself as “Singapore’s best loved online beauty, fashion, lifestyle, shopping portal and forum, catering to women and their insatiable needs.”
Not only are these photos evidence that Leonard Cohen is, indeed, still stylish but they also depict one more accoutrement not listed in the original post – the Prince Of Asturias Award pin bestowed upon Cohen during these ceremonies (see Leonard Cohen, Prince Of Darkness, Pinned By Prince of Asturias) and which he wears on his left lapel.

Bracelet Vs Watch
A viewer who prefers anonymity postulates that “The Other Bracelet” is only a photographic illusion and is, in fact, the wrist watch mentioned in the post
Typically, Leonard Cohen wears a wrist watch (digital, natch) on his left wrist, sometimes with a leather strap, sometimes with a metal band.
The screen capture from a video of Leonard Cohen at the Jovellanos Tribute Concert which (mis)identified the bracelet follows:
After searching for and finding another shot from the same event, I came upon this altogether exquisite Reuters photo at iDNES.
Expanding the region around Cohen’s wrists shows that, indeed, the supposed bracelet is in reality the metal expansion band of his watch.
Saints Bracelet Vs Saints Bracelets
In her comment, Majmunka accurately points out that
… there are more than one saints bracelets. The one in Oviedo and on the first reference photo has black and white oval shaped pictures. The one spotted many times during the tour (the one on the tour video screenshot) has rectangle shaped colour pictures. (I used the latter as a reference for designing my own bracelet with photos of “my own saints” – the Unified Heart Touring Co. Band
For the record, the first time Mr Cohen was spotted wearing a saints bracelet was at the July 25, 2011 Zagreb concert, a video from which is the source of the referenced screenshot. The Heck Of A Guy post, Leonard Cohen Zagreb Concert Opens 2010 Tour, notes:
Leonard Cohen Dons Bracelet For Zagreb Show
The bracelet visible on the right wrist of Leonard Cohen has not, as far as I can determine, been seen at earlier concerts
The next post, “I’m Your Man” Video, New Song Report, & Setlist From Leonard Cohen Zagreb, Croatia Concert, also included the following:
A LeonardCohenForum post by mnkyface notes the similarity of the bracelet worn by Cohen for the first time at the Zagreb concert (and visible on his right wrist in the photo atop this post and in the final photo of last night’s post) to a bracelet of Catholic saints such as the one shown above.
