I don't know about you but I think men are difficult to buy for, especially the ones with very particular taste. Here's my wild stab in the dark for some cool gifts for your man this holiday season.
18 Waits makes clean, crisps, great fitting shits. Love the Sterling Metallic Grey color, it features clean lines and subtle details including a square-point collar, angled cuffs and warped breast pocket. Oh and it's also made in Canada, eh! (See main image also). Available at www.18waits.com, $220.
Every man needs a small wallet. A thick wallet is probably one of my biggest pet peeves on a guy. The Landscape Wallet in Blaq is a slim, sophisticated and tailored wallet for the man tired of all the bulk and excess found in today's wallet options. Handmade in California of 4/5oz leather and waxed nylon thread. Leather is hand dyed in house, hand cut and hand stitched. Available at www.jaqet.com, $95.
For the travel buff, the ultimate travel companion to the USA and Canada? The New York Times 36 Hours: 150 Weekends in the USA & Canada book by Barbara Ireland is the best guide out there. Available at www.chapters.indigo.ca, $40.
For the simple man, a simple leather band bracelet will do the job. The Griffin Easton Bracelet features a waxed corded bracelet with a smooth, round, cylinder bead on the cord. The bracelet is adjustable to fit any wrist size. Available at www.gorjana-griffin.com, $55.
For the tech geek and if you have a tad more cash to spend, I've been told the Parrot Zik Headphones designed by Philippe Starck are the best in the market to date. These wireless headphones are fully integrated with touch control, advanced technology and sleek design, that deliver superb sound and comfort. Available at www.apple.com, $429.
