Longwool overcoats, leather gloves and scarves have become winter wardrobe staples for many fashionable gentlemen. However, most men will refrain from purchasing more luxurious items for themselves, opting to spend their hard-earned money on essentials instead.
This season, give the more economical man in your life a taste of luxury by helping him upgrade his wardrobe. Gift them one of the following items so they can dress to impress all winter long.
1. Canada Goose Lodge Hoody
Canada Goose prides itself on using only the highest quality materials to craft luxury products — and their new Lodge Hoody is no exception. Available in light grey and black shine, this windproof jacket compresses to almost nothing and packs into the right interior pocket for easy storage. An adjustable hood promises warmth and protection in temperatures as cold as five degrees Fahrenheit.
The slim fit and power stretch cuffs also enhance style without adding excess bulk, making it an ideal hoodie for city-lovers and backcountry hikers alike. Plus, its ripstop construction should withstand high winds, light rain and snow so that brave men can face unpredictable weather with unshakeable confidence.
2. Romano Lambskin Leather Jacket
Leather jackets are timeless, handsome and stylish. The right one will add instant flair and intrigue to any fit, which is why this Romano lambskin jacket is the perfect gift for a gentleman.
This wardrobe staple is equally classic and contemporary and will serve any man well throughout the seasons. Drum-dyed Norwegian lambskin exterior is soft yet wonderfully rugged. A zip front double storm-flap and adjustable snap cuffs add contrasting colour and a luxurious wool-cashmere blend lining ensures a comfortable, warm fit. Thinsulate lining in the sleeves also makes it easy to slip this beauty on and off. Order one from Overland.com just in time for the holidays.
3. Gucci Wool-Silk Scarf
Gentlemen with an affinity for name-brand clothing wouldn’t mind wrapping their necks in Gucci. This wool-silk scarf features an oversize GG motif to pay homage to Gucci’s roots and a blue and red colour combination to match practically any outfit.
