Holiday Gift Guide Part 3 – FW17 Pt XVIII

The final edition of the Holiday Gift Guide comes with two last directives to help tackle your gift giving list.

The Heritage Man

Warmth and comfort is the name of this man’s game. The approach of winter excites this recipient as flannels and sweaters get to make their return to duty. This guide is driven by textures and the importance of a little colour. The pieces in this collection have purposeful craftsmanship to ensure quality is the pinnacle of importance.

Some layers from Norse Projects, Manastash and Universal Works combine to create a textured look of detailed focused pieces. The Birnir sweater hails as one of Norse Projects’ most beautifully textured sweaters. They use 100% Scottish lambswool to make this retro-inspired pullover ready for the holidays and beyond. The Manastash lumber shirt looks great as a traditional flannel shirt but thanks to the snap buttons and side seam pockets, it’s also available to be worn as an overshirt. Tie it all together with 100% sheepskin gilet and the Monitaly Double Cuff cap. These two additions to your winter wardrobe will be the softest you can find.

Our support for Hestra gloves runs long, but definitely not as long as their history. Dating back to 1936, the brand was founded in Sweden. Today the third and fourth generations of the Magnusson family are still at the helm. Given that the gloves are designed for such specific activities, attention to detail is their primary concern. The Oden is a multipurpose work style glove that forgoes a liner in order to allow for easier movement. Using fire retardent threads to pull together the Elk leather in a simple and durable accessory for the winter.

As for our shop favourite boots, Yuketen is here for you with the Main Guide Boot. Coming from Japanese designer Yuki Matsuda, Horween Scotch grain leather is hand cut and assembled by master shoemakers in Maine USA. Combining the timeless tradition of premium cobbling, and the modern application of a Vibram sole, the Main Guide Boot is truly one of a kind.
