We’re not one to break a promise. So, last week when we said every Top 5 from here on out will have a Christmas gift focus, we meant it. This week we’ve pulled together some of the most gift-able new arrivals from the likes of Ally Capellino, Yogi Footwear, Marram Co and more. It's got the lot.
If you were ever in doubt that menswear can be both luxurious and sustainable then you need to know about Uniforms For The Dedicated. The Swedish label’s sense of sustainability and style has inspired an impressive new collection that is defined by its timeless silhouettes, innovative material sourcing and playful detailing. You can find all of that in the Forrest Green Wool Track Coat. Cut slightly longer to fit comfortably on the mid-thigh, the Track Coat stands-out for its beautiful green colour hue not to mention its premium cotton twill construction, contrast piping and full-viscose lining.
Yogi’s hand-crafted footwear delivers comfort and authenticity in equal measure. It makes them one of the finest brands to gift this Christmas because their shoes have a lot of understated details that often go unnoticed at first glance. Take these classic looking Moccasin Boots, for example. The premium leather uppers, the clean lines and the authentic moccasin boot silhouette is matched to the natural Vibram sole. A sole that is a lot more comfortable than most.
When it comes to buying Christmas gifts you can get a bit distracted. You can get a bit bogged down looking beyond the obvious, looking for gifts out of the ordinary. You can forget all that, though. Sometimes the best gifts are the ones that they’ll use every day, the items that they will actually grow to love by enjoying using it. This Ally Capellino Waxed Tote Bag is a case in point. Secure, simple and understated, the durable British waxed cotton tote bag is fully-functional; lightweight, adjustable and safe thanks to its zip-top closure.
Shaving kits and grooming gifts are an absolute minefield when it comes to Christmas. You can’t move for them. But, if you’re looking for a grooming gift to outlive and upstage all others then you’ll want to be picking up the Marram Co Safety Razor. Marram Co’s razor is a new take on the double-edged safety blade and it offers a classic, responsive shave. With a safety razor, you get a closer, more responsive shave as it puts you in the driving seat, angling the blade perfectly to your contours. Plus, you are less likely to suffer from sensitivity, blade cutting or any of the other dilemmas that you so often face. It's a win-win.
Choosing a book is a deceptively difficult task. You could just pick up one of the bestsellers or choose something from the book shop down the road but doing so is to ignore the relationship the reader has with their favourite king of page-turner. We’re not normally advocators of the one-size-fits-all policy but just this once we’ll make the exception. That’s because Mendo’s new title, Gentlemen Start Your Engines, is the type of book that will enchant anyone. Curated by the team at Bonhams, every page gives the reader a real sense of the intensity of true automobile culture from record-making vehicles and legendary races worldwide.
