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: Check out 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!
Shinola Runwell Chronograph — $750
An unbeatable watch from a brand that nails the perfect balance between rugged, casul and yet refined style.
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
A well-tailored, well-made jacket from Taylor Stitch that would be a heck of a Christmas gift.
GrowlerWerks Copper uKeg — $169
A seriously cool way to keep your beer fresh and in good condition.
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?
Audio Pro T3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker — $249
A unique way to upgrade your listening experience in terms of design and style.
Taylor Stitch Link Stitch Sweater in Oatmeal Alpaca — $145
A new sweater offering from a revered brand — absolutely perfect to add to a holiday style wish list.
Flint and Tinder Crossback Work Shirt — $138
A fitting winter shirt that’s rugged, durable and worthy of a Christmas list for you … and maybe someone else?
Red Wing Iron Ranger Boots in Tan Harvest — $300
Finely made leather boots … that I sure hope Santa leaves for me under the tree, ehh?
John Woodbridge & Sons Vintage-Style Football — $125
A cool home decor addition? Assuredly. A bit silly? Maybe. But still cool nonetheless? Oh, yes.
Taylor Stitch Oxnard Shirt in Sun-Bleached Chambray — $125
Another shirt from Taylor Stitch? Certainly — all of the brand’s gear is worthy of a wish list!
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.
Happy shopping and thanks for reading!
