With only one week until Christmas, we’re really getting in to crunch time when it comes to finding the perfect gifts for friends and family.  Though a couple of the picks in our cotton gift guide may have to come in the form of an IOU, we have a feeling the lucky recipients won’t mind waiting.

1. Slim Fit Dalton Pants by Jack Donnelly: Slim but not too slim, the Slim Fit Daltons are a pair of pants that every guy needs to have in his wardrobe.  Made from an 8.5oz cotton twill, you’ll be wearing your Daltons all year round.

2. Winter Madras Beau by Starboard Clothing Co.: Rules be damned, we’re wearing this madras beau all winter long.  With rich hues, and a patchwork design that looks great with solids and ginghams, the Winter Madras Beau has become one of our staples.

3. Full Zip Hooded Sweatshirt by American-Giant:  One of our absolute favorites.  American Giant has blown up in the last few months, and their Full Zip Hoodies are now completely sold out.  Trust us, go ahead and pre-order one, you won’t be disappointed.

4. Players Shirt by Criquet:  In a very short time these polos have become a go to for us on and off the golf course.  With a great cut and a bit of a vintage vibe, the Players Shirt is never a bad choice.  We can’t wait to see what the boys down in Austin have in store for 2013.

5. Blue and Red Bretton Check Sport Shirt by Ledbury: Part of the December short run collection, the Blue and Red Bretton shirt is made from fine Thomas Mason cotton twill, AKA some of the absolute best shirting fabric in the world.  Ledbury continues to impress us with their short run options, and this is one that will see wear year round.
