You’ve figured out how to ensure you get exactly what you want from your fellow (that wish list spreadsheet you crafted in August). Return the favor with these fail-safe finds.
Dressed to Chill
Tired of searching for the perfect leather belt, Garrett Colton of Standard Goods partnered with Hollywood Trading Company to design his own. The result is vintage, masculine, and built to last. Above the waist, a merino wool cardigan (pictured above) from the newly opened Unis boutique dappers up your Dan.
Baby, It’s Cold Outside
Outfit him to brave the elements with the Crescent Down Works for South Willard California winter jacket, lined with cozy Pendleton wool. Accessorize with a handknit alpaca wool skully by Tyro by Tes, the new collection from The Elder Statesman, available at Barneys.
Eau de Joy
Upgrade his signature scent from Paulie D. to Italian stallion with Santa Maria Novella’s Toscano cologne (dedicated to the famed cigar) at Mohawk General Store.
Do You Respect Wood?
Head to No. A in Little Tokyo and pick up a groovy WeWood watch. With every purchase, American Forests plants a tree. Consider it a win-win for your guy and Mother Nature.
Prep him for takeoff with a stainless steel one-shot espresso maker from Villainy General Store (1519 West Sunset Boulevard; 213-482-0246) and freshly roasted beans from Silver Lake artisanal roaster Cafecito Organico.
Let him loose inside Perri Ink Cartel, a one-stop shop for all things badass. If a vintage motorcycle or custom guitar doesn’t strike his fancy, perhaps a straight razor shave or some fresh ink will do the trick.
And that’s a wrap.
