Whether you use the term gentlemen, hipster or dapper, they all pretty much describe the same characteristics. A man who isn’t afraid to be who he yet treats others with respect. He dresses elegantly yet casual virtually simultaneously and calls to mind the crooners of old. Think Frank Sinatra meets Adam Levine. If your man fits this description and you are wondering what fashion-forward item you could get him this upcoming Christmas, look no further. The following will give you some great jumping off points to get you started.
A Stylish Hat
As Articles of Style points out, hats have slowly reemerged as a daily accessory once again, reminding us all of a time when any self-respecting gentlemen wouldn’t leave his house without one. The fedora is one style that is particularly fetching. Of course, you don’t have to choose a fedora for your guy, but make sure he has a hat that goes along with his suave appearance. If he doesn’t, add it to his Christmas list.
One common feature of note when thinking hipster is a beard. This shouldn’t be confused with the unkempt backwoodsmen on reality TV, though. These men make a fashion statement with their facial hair. If your man falls into this category, consider giving him beard grooming products for Christmas. Town and Country Magazine points out the benefits of beard and facial oil for not only the bearded gent but the ones who prefer to shave as well.
A Nice Watch
According to Gear Patrol, every dapper man needs a good, everyday watch. It shouldn’t be an overpowering showpiece, but shouldn’t be a digital monstrosity either. Look for a sleek item with a leather strap for the perfect combination of elegance and function.
What says stylish and cool more than a sleek pair of shades? That’s right, nothing. The basic aviator, as well as the funkier hexagonal models, are both trending according to Gear Patrol. Choose either one for your man about town to help him complete his stylish persona.
Your hipster, dapper, gentleman likely needs no help at all looking his best. However, Christmas gives you a great opportunity to gift him some additional pieces that will take his look up a level. The above are just a few options you can consider this year.
