A Valentine’s Day Gift Guide For The Man Of Style

February 8th, 2021

Handsome gifts for handsome guys

Maybe you’re a husband. Maybe you’re a fiancé. Or maybe you’re the boyfriend of some lucky lady. In any of those instances, if you happen to celebrate Valentine’s Day–we know that not everyone does these days–and she’s been wondering what to get you, perhaps send her a link to this article.

1. Ettinger Travel Shoe Horn

We may not be traveling now, but why not be ready to do so in style once we can?Elegant and compact, Ettinger’s travel shoe horn folds neatly into its stitched bridle leather pouch. Tuck it into your suitcase, briefcase, dopp kit or jacket pocket. An ideal addition to the jetset modern man’s travel essentials kit.

2. English Pewter Company Flask

We conceived of our signature flask to be able to hold and transport “the perfect pour” – two ounces of your very best stuff. Simple, classic and elegant. This is the flask you bring with you in your briefcase on a daylong business trip to the city. Take it out as you recline in your train seat during your commute home and reward yourself after a hard day’s work.

3. Cunning Kitsune Pocket Square

Sabina Savage Pocket SquareA stunning addition to any well-dressed modern man’s collection. This zoological-motif pocket square is created by Sabina Savage. Each piece is printed and hand finished by artisans in Como, Italy.

4. HSS x Michael Andrews Tie

A versatile necktie for a more relaxed and sartorial approach. Also available in burgundy, navy, and slate. What guy doesn’t like a nice tie?

5. HSS x Michael Andrews Silk Scarf

Add a touch of class to any tailored look with this timeless burgundy silk scarf with dot pattern. Also available in navy and black.

6. Hilts Willard Braided Leather Gloves

The “Billy” brown woven lambskin gloves from Hilts-Willard features a unique woven lambskin back for flex and comfort with a natural aniline lambskin palm and cashmere wool blend seamless knit lining for added warmth. These woven gloves look sharp enough to wear with a suit but relaxed enough to wear with jeans.

7. Men And Style

A compendium of essays, interviews, and theories, David Coggins, mostly eschews simple style advice and focuses on dialogue that provides insight into the minds of the world’s most rakish men and influential figures in fashion. In addition to serving as a style guide of sorts, the thing you’ll likely find most interesting is reading stories about the style mistakes and hard lessons that our planet’s foremost tastemakers have experienced. A must-read in our book.

8. Collar Stay Set

Not all collars are created equally, and sometimes you need a little help to keep your collar in exactly the right place. Enter the magnetic metal collar stays. The magnets are covered in rubber on three sides and come in white and two shades of blue to help camouflage them against the most common shirt fabrics. This set is handsomely packaged in a black genuine leather carry case that fits easily in your pocket, shave kit or suit jacket.

9. Cedar Shoe Trees

Our 100% cedar shoe trees help draw out moisture and maintain your shoes’ original shape. Our custom-designed shoe trees feature a split-toe across the toe box to replicate the pressure of your foot when it is inside the shoe. Cedar wood absorbs moisture, which as you may know is a killer for shoes. Since cedar wood is aromatic, it will also work to freshen your shoes right up. These shoe trees will help your footwear last for ages and save you tons of money in the long run.

Don't get me wrong. In the winter, I love a good flannel suit or tweed sport coat.  Recently, though--for obvious reasons--I've found myself experimenting with the casual side of the spectrum.

Perhaps especially in the doldrums of winter, it's easy to fall into the trap of throwing on sweatpants and whatever hoodie is laying around. It's comfortable and doesn't require much thought.
