Superga x The Row Low Top Sneaker ($250) in Gray
Not your ordinary sneaker, these high-fashion kicks are crafted from soft cashmere and gold-tone hardware. Even better: they’re unisex, so not only should you grab them for your man, snag a pair for yourself too. Not a fan of gray? They’re also available in black and navy.
Eclectic by Tom Dixon London Crocus and Brick Scented Candle ($80)
We know what you’re thinking-a candle?—but it’s manly, we swear. The London-inspired scent is far from sweet; instead it offers an outdoorsy blend of crocuses, brick houses, and the salty musk of the River Thames. It’s perfect for his office or man cave.
The Tie Bar Jesse Tyler Ferguson Collection The Macleon Bow Tie ($25) in Yellow
Instead of buying him a typical tie this year, surprise him with this snazzy bow version. In addition to being a dapper addition to his formal attire, 100% of the proceeds will go to TieTheKnot.org in support of marriage equality. He’ll appreciate that it’s a gift that keeps on giving—we sure do!
A.P.C. Jacket with Contrasting Collar ($470)
Hands down, A.P.C. has some of the best men’s clothing every season, and this zip-up jacket is no exception. A step up from your traditional jean jacket, this luxurious iteration features an indigo wash and contrast brown suede collar. It looks a lot like something Ryan Gosling would wear, so naturally we approve.
Uniform Wares 200 Series PVD Rose Watch ($360)
Ensure your favorite fellow is always on time with the help of this chic watch by Uniform Wares. Unfussy types will admire its minimal design and classic engineering, but it has luxurious elements too, like a leather wrist strap and stainless steel rose gold case.—Jessica Baker
