  2. You can’t go wrong with a good pair of denim. These are my favorite – they are a skinny slim fit with out being “too tight”.
  3. Nothing is a more practical gift for the holidays than a soft knit hat and gloves.
  4. It’s ok to like slippers – how could you not with a pair like these?
  5. Whether or not you expect a few additions to your gadget collection, you can’t go wrong with a portable power bankthat let’s you get the most of of his tech.
  6. This sleek titanium flask seems to belong in a Bond movie.
  7. Keep all of your ideas in one place with these memo books.
  8. Socks used to be the brunt of the Christmas gift joke but not anymore with socks like these.
  9. Nike is always adding new styles but this is one to pounce on now. They pair perfectly with jogger pants.

Of course we can’t get through any winter without a few season-specific pieces (think snow boots), but here are two basics that will get worn well before and beyond the official winter season.

1.) Lace-up boots: A pair of solid, leather lace-up boots will get more than their fair share of wear. They are both practical and can work with almost any look.

2.) A cardigan: Gone are the days where cardigans are only found in the women’s department. Add an extra layer of warmth and class with a button down sweater.

A Guide to Your Sharpest Suit

An opportunity to wear a suit should never be missed. Here are a few ways to make sure your suit is on it’s A-game.

  • Get it tailored. A suit can be risky – the payoff for a great suit is huge but the loss of an ill-fitting suit could be even bigger. When you invest in a suit, go the extra step to get the most bang for you buck and to make sure it fits you perfectly.
  • Ditch the tie. A tie definitely adds a more professional edge to a suit, but going tie-less has it’s own appeal – comfort and a more relaxed contrast against a classic suit.
  • Make it yours. Add elements that make it your own. Dress socks are an opportunity to take advantage of the great prints and selections, like this navy and burgundy checked style.
