We found our favorite things from some of our favorite brands in order to make shopping a bit easier this year. We hope this helps put a smile on your face and the ones you love. urbanears harris tweed Urbanears: Collaborations can be great or abismal, however when two companies come together and collaborate on a project that ensure both parties hold fast to the integrity of what they’re known for, we the comsumer benfit. Urbanears and Harris Tweed have done just that, creeating in my opinion headphones for the stylish gent. Wrapped in 100% virgin wool from the one and only Harris Tweed. The brown ear cushions and orange cords do this just right. I’m glad Urbanears chose to do this with the Plattan headphone; the size of these headphones are just right for this beautiful material. Well done. $130 outclass clothing Outclass Tin Cloth Trench Coat: Every man needs a good trench coat and a great woman. This trench from Outclass will fulfill the first part of the previous sentence and may help with the second one. OutClass has been on our radar for some time and with this trench here they’re starting to seperate themselves from the pack of new brands. $495 westthird brand colonge West Third Brand: Reminiscence of a fall day, West Third Brand’s Tobacco 1812 hits the mark with the sweet smell of dried tobacco leaves, muddled with rich honey, cocoa, layered with dried fruit and exotic woods. $28 Not familiar with West Third learn all about them HERE.etre gloves,menswear Etre Five Point Wool Gloves: “These are a pair that I personally own. They’re super warm (made out of Scottish wool) and allow you to access your touch screen electronics without having to take them off. They’re perfect for the winter.” —Chris Dam: A&H Fashion Director thom browne shirt Thom Browne Classic White Button down with Grosgrain Pocket: “Every man has a wardrobe staple. In my case, it’s Thom Browne’s classic white oxford. It can be used on any occasion and worn with any color. If I had it my way, I would have a closet full of these.” — Chris Dam: A&H Fashion Director libero case Libero Ferrero Glasses Case: “Yes—it may seem a bit odd to have a sunglasses case in here, but Libero Ferrero has created the perfect protection for your favorite pair. Made of high quality Horween leather, these are un-doubtly the best I’ve seen yet.” — Chris Dam: A&H Magazine Director swimshorts, solid and striped shorts Solid and Stripe Men’s Classic Suit in Navy & White: I’ve searched and searched for the perfect suit; a pair that has not only a perfect pattern, but a perfect fit. I can’t tell you how well these fit through the internet. They hit perfectly on your thigh. Shorter than the modern board short, longer than the Italian bathing suits. They’re made of 100% quick drying Italian polyamide, translated means that they dry in no time. I’d say I spend most of my summer wearing them, even when I’m not at the pool. general knot tie,menswear General Knot & Co. Silk/Wool Tonal Check With Fringed Edge Necktie: Coming across these two beautiful complementary silk/wool checks we could barely take our eyes off of them. The combination of silk and fine wool create a subtle sheen unlike anything else—just perfect. Fringed on one edge of each point to give a little twist to the classic necktie. We love the effect. This piece goes so well with practically any garment that it should be a staple in every man’s closet. $108 royal oak supply, belt Royal Oak Supply The Stag Park Belt: The Stag Park belt is handmade in America using morocco brown leather. It comes hand stitched with an antique brass buckle and oak leaf embossed logo. We were introduced to Royal Oak from a friend and after stopping by their studio and seeing what’s in the works, this brand will be on your radar very soon.

Zonkey Boot has been raising the bar with each release ever since. we discovered them. The Brownstone design here is a five-eyelet derby, made from water resistant calf suede in a bright hazelnut brown color. The waxed toe is what sets this apart from pac;, it’s all about the details.
