Clothes Make The Man
Looking for the perfect gift for the men in your life? We've never met a husband, dad or boyfriend who didn't appreciate a stylish and practical addition to their wardrobe. Before you brave the crowds at the mall, take a look at our top picks for apparel gifts every guy will love.
If his casual outfits could use a little updating, the holidays are a great time to inject some style into his weekend wardrobe. When it comes to casual wear, you can't go wrong with denim. Give him a pair of sexy jeans, a soft chambray button-down shirt or a classic denim jacket to layer with his favorite hoodie. Colored denim and denim shoes are fun choices for the guy with a flair for fashion.
Wrap up a stylish sweater to keep your guy warm this winter. Rugby stripes, plaid patterns, argyle and stripes are big trends in men's sweaters this season. GQ editors also say every man needs a chunky cable-knit sweater, and we tend to agree. Is there anything better than cuddling up to a strapping Irish fisherman by the fire on a chilly day? Pass the Baileys!
Whoever said a stomach is the way to a man's heart obviously never met your man. A guy who's glued to the TV watching football all weekend is much more likely to have his heart go pitter-pat when he receives a soft and stylish sporty T-shirt. If he's a die-hard fan of multiple teams, package up a logo tee from each of his favorites. If you really want to score, include two tickets to an upcoming game along with the T-shirts. His heart will be yours forever.
A hoodie, or hooded sweatshirt, is a perfect gift for men of any age. College guys, social media billionaires, even grandfatherly types all look cute in this comfortable casual look. Lightweight hoodies are ideal for layering with short-sleeve T-shirts underneath and jackets on top. Plus, guys just look so darn cute when wearing them. If you're giving a hoodie to someone you like to snuggle with, make sure you pick a soft one. Sherpa-lined, perhaps?
Even the manliest man needs some protection from the elements. He'll be thrilled to unwrap a winter coat or jacket to keep him looking and feeling good when temperatures drop. Choose a leather bomber jacket for your bad boy, a double-button trench coat for your sophisticate or a lined denim jacket for your weekend warrior. Or if none of these sound quite right, go for a pea coat — a classic staple for any man's wardrobe.
