Today’s Christmas gift guide is brought to you courtesy of M.A.D and is particularly relevant if the M.A.D in your life is a graphic designer/architect type, as it is packed with tasteful/practical ideas as well as the odd ridiculously expensive ‘in your dreams’ idea.
M.A.D is a huge fan of a grey marl sweatshirt and over the years has become an expert at finding the perfect combo of high quality fabric and perfect fit. This one from Reigning Champ meets all his criteria.
He is also a lover of a comfy slipper – but they have to also be stylish – grey, felt and super simple, Serenza give good slipper.
Also useful is The Mod, a storage wallet – particularly for those who travel a lot – which allows you to store your tablet, phone, pens, stylus, glasses, cards, cash, notebook and headphones etc – all in one place.
Any modern lumbersexual, young or older, loves a hiking boot – even they are just for walking the dog – and End Clothing have the best selection. They also have the ultimate, iconic biker jacket from Belstaff.
Beards are also still a thing and M.A.D spends almost as much money on his as I do on my hair, so beard oil is an essential stocking filler.
The contemporary man isn’t afraid of a bit of homeware and M.A.D is loving the Japanese Yuki (the Japanese word for snow) vases from Goodhood (currently my absolute favourite shop). They also have the perfect selection of gloves.
And last but not least, if the the man in your life is something of a train spotter, he will love The Journey: The Fine Art of Travelling by Train.
