Yes, here’s our rundown of gifts for chaps. We’ve gone for a classic, modern mix because as I’ve experienced men can be very specific.
1/ Out of Print T-shirts – £35.00
T-shirts are great for all, and with Out of Print you’re not only showing off an interest in a cult book but charity too because for every shirt sold a book is sent to Africa. Now, what’s not to like about that?
2/ James Brown ‘Stick it to the Man’ Print – £60.00 (framed)
James’ use of typography, in particular his colourful circus-inspired designs, has always made us smile. But the addition of wry, monochromatic prints has only endeared him further. The ‘Stick it to the Man’ Print is an exhibition of puns gone wild. Good times.
3/ YMC Wool Hat – £50.00
Made in Scotland by the perennially sharp YMC label, a wool bobble hat is a keeper. Combined with the Nordic/Fair Isle print it’s an easy wear that can be teamed with pretty much anything.
4/ Huck Magazine – £4.00
Designed by the Church of London, you know Huck is going to be slick, add to that interviews with the likes of Travis Rice and Geoff Rowley and shoots that cover skateboarding, surf, snow as well as art and music and it’s a hit.
5/ Saint James Meridien – £45.00
The most classic of all their tops, the Saint James Meridien II is a loose fit Breton top, designed originally to dress fisherman. The green and navy combination is a special for this winter but we think the pine green is a pretty sweet addition to jeans or chinos all year round.
6/ Cheddar Pocket Daryl Wallet / £55.00
A sharp, well-designed wallet is a must for any man. Well, no one likes to be caught short without their Driver’s Licence / Nectar card / photo of the kids / (delete as applicable) do they? All the way from Australia, Cheddar Pocket wallets are created with 100% leather and come with their own gift box to boot – winner!
