My friends, the above title says it all — it’s time, once again, to dive into the men’s style holiday wish list of your, well OK … my dreams). This wish list of the best men’s gear has become a yearly ritual dating way back to when The Style Guide first launched (as Siblings with Style, no less), and it’s always one of my favorites (Editor’s note: Checkout my first-ever holiday wish list from back in the day while we’re on the topic). Why? Well, if you read our regular list of the best seasonal menswear — entitled *ahem* The List … you know that it can be fun to dream a little about what’s going to end up in your closet. And that’s no more true than when it comes to what Santa might be leaving for you under the tree. After all, it’s December and the clock is ticking. Rest assured that we’ll also be publishing gift guides on what to buy for the women (and fellas) in your life in the coming weeks. It’s all covered! Let me know on Twitter what’s on your holiday wish list, and thanks for reading!
Another year, another stylish Shinola watch on my holiday wish list. Can you blame me? Shinola makes well-crafted timepieces with sensible design and just a bit of rugged edge. It must be my Michigan roots, but I truly appreciate this brand and how they’re focusing on bringing industry and a bit of an economic uplift to Detroit. So yes, the Shinola Runwell Chronograph is a stunner in my book.
Taylor Stitch Telegraph Jacket in Navy Donegal — $278
It’s definitely the craft beer fan in me — and the abundance of excellent brewpubs and breweries in Brooklyn and beyond — but the stylishly and effectively designed GrowlerWerks Copper uKeg is certainly a handsome addition to one’s apartment (including mine, potentially!). Perfect for keeping a rich stout or porter fresh through winter, ehh?
Taylor Stitch Oxnard Shirt in Sun-Bleached Chambray — $125
To be sure, do I have enough rugged Taylor Stitch menswear in my wardrobe to last me quite a while? Why, yes … yes, I certainly do. Will that stop me from adding the Taylor Stitch Oxnard Shirt to my holiday wish list? Assuredly not. The Oxnard Shirt is a well-crafted, versatile shirt, ready for layering now with a rugged henley and wearing with rolled chinos and stylish leather sneakers come spring and summer. So, it ends up on this list!
Alright, folks — what’s ending up on your holiday wish list? Which of these picks couldn’t you live without? The Shinola Runwell Chronograph is a true stunner in my eyes, as is the Taylor Stitch Link Sweater, an excellent men’s layering essential. Of course, I can’t pass up the GrowlerWerks Copper uKeg for the season, either. Let me know in the comments what you’re asking for (and hoping for) this Christmas.
