You can read this gift guide as either a handy list of your holiday favorites you can print out and give to your wife or as some favorites that are a must for your dad, son, nephew or friend. In no particular order, behold the Christopher James gift list:
Put a solid or patterned shirt that can be worn untucked high on your list. With the prevalence of adopting casual work cultures, there is less of a need to have many suits hanging in your closet. A shirt by Emanuel Berg, for example, can be worn tucked or untucked with jeans or chinos. We should clarify that not just any button-down shirt can be worn this way. Stop by and we’ll show you how to pull it off.
A quarter-zip sweater from Peter Millar or Robert Graham is utilitarian *and* stylish. Sure, it will keep you warm, but over a patterned button-down, it can make a gent look polished for the office or ready to take a place at this weekend’s flute recital. Worn with jeans by 34 Heritage or with dressier trousers, you’ll have versatility on your side for sure.
Dress socks can be a fun purchase from Christopher James for the guy on your list — or for yourself. Buy a luxurious pair by VKNagrani, which Esquire magazine has billed as “the best socks in the world.” They’ll be a treat for you or a good friend on your list.
If you know your gift recipient’s size, refined sneaks by Wolverine or or Peter Millar would make a great gift. Available in butter leather and different colors, your someone special would love wearing these to work with jeans or khakis or on the weekend while he’s running errands.
For the ultimate splurge, put a Hook & Albert garment weekender bag under the tree. The leather bag fully unzips to hold a sport jacket or suit on a hanger. Zip it and tuck in your shoes, shirt, sweater, undergarments and toiletries and you’re ready to say bon voyage. You’ll smile big when your special giftee tells you about the stares and double-takes how received while walking through the airport.
You can never go wrong with a gift card from Christopher James. It shows just how much you care.
Happy Holidays from Christopher James and see you soon!
