1. Grenson Archie Brogue Black/ Cognac  This shoe is actually on my christmas wish list, I’m a huge Grenson fan and this full brogue will look sharp with a great pair of tweed or flannel trousers this winter the two tone color contrast makes it pretty unique and extremely versatile.

2. Billy Reid Graham- Grey Tweed Do I really need to explain to you why I want a classic pair of grey tweed trousers made in Italy with horn button closure back pocketing and a canvas lined waist band? Billy makes impeccable garments for real people. His attention to detail is the best in my opinion, lets not forget this man one best Male designer last year in GQ. FyI picture this trouser with the Archie Brogue.

3. Material 6 real wood Iphone Back plate  This item is on the way and is a must have for those who love the Iphone 4/ 4S, But want to add a bit of individuality, and luxury to their device with out adding bulk. Material 6  uses real wood to create these custom back plates and periodically  they will update their offerings based on season, so every wood texture is a limited option thats always a plus.

4. Jean Shop Signature Briefcase This item isn’t cheap but its an investment that will last you forever. If your Significant Other gets use this bag they’re a keeper. My good friend and Jean Shop owner Eric, added dedicated lap top and Iphone compartments, pen slots and many other really functional add ons for the guy on the move. Not to mention GQ quoted it as the best bag of the year, and in my opinion they did so with good reason.


5. Club Monaco Cole Cashmere Cardigan If you have been into Club Monaco lately, then you’ve seen this cardigan, its undeniably one of the best feeling/ fitting cardigans out right now. Aaron Levine is a great designer who really understands what it takes to create a well detailed and constructed cashmere cardigan using only the best Italian cashmere ( Loro Piana) to be exact.
