If you’re a stylish gent, you’re acutely aware of each seasonal shift. Spring affords chances to wear lighter, refreshed colors; summer is time for light material and sunglasses; autumn means breaking out a chunky cardigan. But it’s winter when a man can truly shine. He can layer. He can sport rich fabrics and hulking boots, overcoats and purposeful accessories. When there is such a wide, deep array of options in the winter wardrobe world, what exactly do you give the man who lives stylishly? We’re here to turn that dilemma into fruitful present curation. So brew up some nog, get out the wrapping paper (even if you’re giving to yourself) and check out our top picks in these important categories of winter style for the well dressed man.
We've all got a guy in our lives who's more at home chopping a cord of wood or filleting his latest fly fishing catch than spending the day lazing in front of the TV or playing Halo with the bros. He'd wear flannel and hiking boots to board meetings if he could. For that ultimate outdoorsman on your gift list this year, forego the REI gift card and DVD set of Duck Dynasty. Whether he spends his time hunting big game, scouring the river for the best brook trout lies, or just enjoys living in front of a campfire instead of a laptop, we've got the best gifts for the modern day backwoodsman.
Slopeside Syrup Aptly named, this syrup is tapped from trees that cover a mountain overflowing with ski slope history. Abutting ski slopes carved and operated by the family’s late patriarch, the Cochran farm has run a ski business for decades and churned out true ski pros and even an Olympic Gold Medal win. The Cochran...
The Music Of Grand Theft Auto V You’ve been immersed in the magical world of GTA V for weeks now, a blissful release after the months and months of anticipation. You’ve explored, flown, exploded, bought, painted, golfed, hang-glided, danced, and cartwheeled. But when you have to pry yourself away from the screen and go to...
Destination fly fishing for trout in the high country of Colorado is a little different than going for sunnies in the local pond. Your gear needs to be quite a bit more specialized and reliable; you need a way to get it all from the flatlands to the high country. We planned to fish mostly from a drift boat -- a specialized boat designed to navigate shallow rivers. But we were going to be wading, too. And in mountain rivers, which are bigger, faster and colder than rivers in the Midwest, wading takes on a new meaning -- and so does proper gear. Of course, we still had to catch the fish.
Porsche Steve McQueen Racing Jacket This jacket pays homage to an icon who inspired and generated envy in dudes the world over — for his cars and driving skills almost as much as for his acting and inherent coolness. It’s got a supremely vintage, look with McQueen’s signature on the front among other logos, a...
Call it the "Goldilocks of Bags" if you like, though sometimes it seems like more of a "Unicorn of Bags": the perfectly sized and properly priced duffel can be elusive (hell, brands can't even decide one way to spell it). When the occasion calls for light packing in something that'll easily fit in the back seat or sling comfortably over your shoulder there are myriad options, but how many of them can be considered worth a buy? What follows are 30 of the best duffel bags to fit every budget. These represent a vast array of materials, styles, colors and purposes, but suffice it to say each of these duffels is just right.
It doesn't matter if you're heading to Whistler for early spring powder turns or Fort Lander for the summer climbing festival; mountain style is a little different than your garden variety runway fare. Put the moonboots and sweat pants down. You're not fooling anyone. We've put together a few indispensable mountain style standards, chock full of storied, quality brands, to help you blend in with the locals -- unless you're heading to any ski resort in Montana. In that case, it's time to stock up on Wrangler and Carhartt.
He shows up at Christmas dinner with new scars and less digits from his latest cage dives and winter Alpine ascents. His tales, most of them true, scare Aunt Betty to tears and enchant the kids. And while the adventurer’s gifts for you usually amount to a carved tribal trinket or a rock from a...
C.C. Filson outfitted the Klondike Gold Rush fortune seekers in 1897; though holiday travel nowadays sends us to much tamer locations, using the sloppy disheveled gym bag in the closet to avoid extra fees is the kind of boorish move that would elicit a slap in the face from Filson himself. Filson’s updated medium duffle...

Your thoughts are organized. It’s the contents of your pockets that you can’t seem to track down. You don’t necessarily need a system, as your wife suggests; you just need a one-stop-shop where you can dump all your contents at the end of the day. And, no, a cereal bowl does not a stylish man...
If you’re going to wear an apron, it better be the manliest, most rugged, heavy-duty friggin’ apron the world has ever seen. We suggest Filson’s Tin Cloth Utility Apron ($95).

The person who coined the phrase “getting there is half the fun”, clearly never had to travel by air, train, bus, or car during the holiday season. No amount of planning can ever guarantee a smooth journey, but having the “right tools for the job”, as they say, will go a long way towards making...
Winter isn’t the only time Fido needs an extra layer. Give him the same rain protection you sport during the Spring with the Filson Shelter Cloth Dog Coat ($70). The water-repellent shell can be reversed to expose their signature red/black plaid Mackinaw wool lining and features an extra layer of moleskin around the neck, adjustable...
Wear a wool t-shirt? You’d probably rather roll yourself into a sheet of fiberglass insulation after soaking in corn syrup.

Synthetics tend to channel modern adventurist and climber extraordinaire, Ed Viesturs, while wool echoes,...
Combining two of America’s best and oldest names in classic rugged clothing, Levi’s (1853) and C.C.
