Christmas week has finally arrived, and whether you are scrambling to finish shopping, or you’re officially on cruise control until 2015, we hope that you’re feeling festive. If not, you need to go ahead and pick up a pair of Panta Claus washed chinos from Bonobos. Just knowing they’re on the way should be enough to put a big ‘ol Christmas smile on your face.
Somehow we’ve managed to get to the last bowtie Friday before Christmas. It seems like we should have more time, but here we are. Of course, we have to be a little festive with our Bowtie Friday pick this week, and it doesn’t get much better than the Holiday Quad Bow from our friends at Collared Greens.
With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season starting to wear on us, we’ve found ourselves going a bit more casual than normal as of late. Comfort has become more of a priority as our days seem to get longer and longer with each passing sunset, but we can’t completely sacrifice style. That means henleys are in heavy rotation, and the Huron from Mizzen+Main is one of our favorites.
It’s fun to play the ‘what if’ game time to time, and this year we figured it’d be interesting to see what we could come up with for a gift guide with absolutely no budget. This is by far the most expensive guide we’ve ever put out, and it’ll probably hold that title for quite some time. Regardless, here’s what we’d be handing out this year if money was no object.
Whether your next beach trip is months away, or you’re going to be celebrating Christmas Corona style with decorated palm trees, a trip to the coast is always a great way to recharge the batteries. For our third gift guide of the year, we’re featuring a few things that will make any beach trip better.
Friends, unless you want to pay for overnight shipping, or hand out a bunch of gift cards, this week is your last chance to pick up that perfect gift for friends or family. Today we’re featuring a handful of things any bowtie aficionado would love.
To say our pal Cooper down at Social Primer has a unique sense of style would be quite the understatement. His pairings are unique, his colors are bold, and every look is simply sharp as a tack. Of course, many of his looks are finished off with a great looking Social Primer bowtie. This time of year, we’re betting he’s getting plenty of wear out of their recently released Gingerbread Man and Red Tartan bow.
A few weeks back, the fine folks at Grayers reached out to thank us for a couple of features we’d run on their wares. Not only were we thankful for the kind words, we were also happy that we’d made a connection at a brand we’d had our eye on for quite some time. Grayers has grown by leaps and bounds over recently, and if they continue to release items like their Donegal Sweater, we have a feeling they are going to be around for the long haul.
On our last visit to our favorite barbershop, The QG, we finally got a chance to check out there recently completed men’s store. We’d heard that Tretorn would be included in the QG collection, and we were excited to see what else beyond staple Nylites they would have in stock. The shoe that we left most impressed with was definitely the Gärde Stövel Vinter GTX.
