36 gifts for the well-dressed gent

12 Guys of Christmas: The Dapper Man

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.

Kit: Summer Fridays

Summer Fridays are a thing to be put on a pedestal, the ultimate luxury for 9-to-5, Monday to Friday working stiffs. They're a chance to bug out as soon as possible, to hit the road or jump a train to the beach, a cabin in the woods or some other resplendent getaway. In any case, we can't just go into a summer Friday unprepared, men. We cannot go silently into that good mini vacation. What we need is a kit -- the perfect gear for the perfect summer Friday getaway.

Gracing Venice

Talk Shop: Gant Rugger, Abbot Kinney

Gant is back with a vengeance, thanks in large part to the talents of creative director Christopher Bastin.

Style Pick: Gant Rugger Leather Goods

Unless you happen to live right above a New York based GANT store, you may have missed a new collection of small leather goods that launched today.

Photo Essay: Pop-Up Flea

This past weekend, NYC saw the annual Pop Up Flea, a collective display of over 25 menswear brands and their goods. The flea, organized by Michael Williams and Randy Goldberg was an orgy tableau of leather and heritage.

Hiking? Doubt it. Style? Absolutely

Gant Rugger Hiker Jacket

Good jackets are generally one of two breeds: down-filled marshmallow parkas or lightweight cover-ups for a beach barbecue. Rarely does a man cross paths with a perfect autumn jacket that strikes a balance between the two. The Hiker Jacket from Gant Rugger ($285) is quite possibly the best such garment we have ever seen. Not...

Fashion Week | GANT by Michael Bastian

Most people assume fashion shows are all about runways and break dance fighting. Ok maybe just runways. The reality is that plenty of brands put on just as big of a spectacle by throwing champagne-fueled parties, bedeck with models posed against choice backdrops. We were invited to one such event last week for Michael Bastian’s...
