The Christmas season is indisputably one of the best times of the year. ‘Tis the season to ask your loved ones to buy you the things that you would or even better, would not buy for yourself. And that is a beautiful thing. Here are a few ideas to add to your own list or if you are shopping for the man in your life.
I have long professed my love of knit ties. These are some of, if not the nicest I’ve ever seen (obviously I am biased since I own Jay Butler). Made by the same factory that Drake’s uses so you know these will not disappoint.
Because they are soft in all the right places
If I had $600 sitting around there is decent chance it would be spent on this. Do I need it? Absolutely not. But would it be great to have it? Absolutely.
Oliver Wicks Brown Flannel Suit
So fresh. So clean. Dark green is definitely an underutilized suit color, especially in seasonal fabrics like the VBC flannel.
Hudson Sutler Sconset Cooler Bag
For the day on the beach. Or the day in the park. Or just for life.
Want that clunky boot sole but a butter soft upper? Look no further. I’ve been wearing a pair of these around for the last few weeks and love them.
To go with that brown flannel suit.
Jay Butler Shoe Care Kit
You took the time to invest in good shoes, now take the time to take care of them.
Music that goes with you. Just don’t be that douchebag who plays his music for all to hear while walking down the street or on mass transit.
Any guy who made it far enough to graduate college should know that it is time to part ways with the posters of musicians, quotes and cars taped on the wall. Maybe he has that great print or painting that looks nice but needs some help. But it would look great if it had a proper frame. You would be surprised what a difference a frame can make.
Ralph Lauren Slim Fit Corduroys
I think I have 7 pair of these, enough said, right?
I keep putting these on the list because proper suit care cannot be emphasized enough. Yes, they are expensive, but they are beautiful.
A few books that I have read over the past year that come to mind are a team of teams (Stanley McChrystal) and Shoe Dog (Phil Knight).
Because being a child never gets old
