So, our plan to only run gift guides on Tuesdays is officially out the window.  With so many things we want to profile prior to Christmas, we’re doubling up this week (and probably next week too).  Below you’ll find some of our favorite leather picks.

1. Suede Penny Loafers by Sid Mashburn: We picked up a pair of these last month on a visit to Atlanta, and they’ve quickly become a wardrobe staple.  Our friend JRS over at Red Clay Soul has been singing the praises of suede loafers for quite some time, and we are now believers.  Wear ‘em with everything.

2. Button-Stud Watchband by form•function•form:  They say this strap looks great on everything from a Timex to a Rolex, and we couldn’t agree more.  A nice departure from more traditional leather straps, the button-stud watchband is unlike any other band on the market.

3. Handsome Dan Football by Leather Head:  Maybe Ralphie was on to something when he told Santa he wanted a football.  Dubbed the “official football of collegiate tailgating,” each Handsome Dan football is handmade in New Jersey and is a touch smaller than a regulation game ball.  Perfect for everything from a tailgate party to a family game of touch football after you’re done opening presents.

4. Embossed Anchor Credit Card Holder by Jack Spade:  Made from vegetable dyed cowhide, and featuring burnished anchors all over, this credit card holder has 2 slots for cards, and a center pocket for some cash.  Look at it as the anti-Costanza.

5. Original Shade Anchors by L.I. Sounder:  Hand crafted in the USA, shade anchors are a refined approach to sunglass straps.  Designed to fit most frames, we’ll definitely be sporting these once the days start to get a little longer.
