‘Tis the season to shop for the best Christmas gifts for every stylish guy on your list … yourself included. That brings us quite literally to a new edition of The List, featuring top holiday gifts for stylish guys — and quite likely, a few you’ll want to pick up for yourself. In this case, it could be the rugged, remarkable Taylor Stitch Long Haul Jacket as shown above (one for you and one for me!?) … or it could be something else. We’ve talked recently about things like how to dress for a holiday party and how to upgrade your blue jeans, and these gear picks toe that line nicely — seasonally friendly, made to be given as gifts, and classic enough to wear the rest of the year. Not bad at all. Start shopping!

Revtown Taper Denim in Smokey Indigo — $79
If you’re searching for the most affordable jeans on the market to gift this season — particularly to the guy who needs to upgrade his denim — you’d be hard-pressed to find a better pair of denim than the crisply cut, super-soft Revtown Taper Denim (recently released by the brand).
Outerknown Arcana Sherpa Jacket — $198
If you or a loved one could use an upgraded from the typical company branded fleece, then the Outerknown Arcana Sherpa Jacket is easily one of the best casual winter jackets you can reach for.

Lensabl Eyeglasses and Replacement Lenses — Starting at $77
The time to pick up a last-minute gift fast approaches — and if you know someone who could use the gift of better eyesight (it’s a thing), consider pointing them toward Lensabl (and perhaps starting them off with a stylish pair of sunglasses before diving into the brand’s optical collection). What’s Lensabl all about? You can either pick up a pair of the brand’s stylish glasses yourself, or you can use their lens replacement program to swap in prescription or non-prescription lenses to get lenses with blue-light protection and an anti-scratch coating, among other features. I had a chance to test out the Montana Glasses courtesy of the brand, and I can’t recommend them enough.
