Dear Friends of The Fleece Milano,
Shopping for Christmas gifts for the people in your family and life (including yourself) can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. There’s the father who has everything or the agreeable husband or brother who swears they don’t need anything. We did all of the digging so that you can look no further for the classically inspired holiday gift for gentlemen, but for one that they will instead like – and actually use. Here, we share our brief but exclusively curated gift guide for some of the best gift items to make your shopping more manageable this year.
Whether you are enjoying a sunny Sunday skiing on the slopes or flying over to a beach destination in the other hemisphere during the Christmas holidays, the perfect accessory to elevate any outfit is an ultra-cool pair of sunglasses. Our first suggestion is the ‘Welt Honey” by TBD Eyewear. Welt Honey features a honey-colored frame that is hand-made in Italy with 100% UV protection. The round-shaped lenses are both classic and casual and can be paired with a casual or smart elegant outfit. If neutral shapes are better suited, the “Panama Eco Black” aviators are a valid alternative and sleek option with a retro twist that we always like. These aviator-style glasses take their inspiration from aviators’ glasses in the 1950s, with a drop-green lens for a vintage touch.Moving on to our favorite topic, clothes, for a perfectly structured informal jacket for fall and winter, we suggest the 100% wool Hosho Plaid Green & Black Jacket by Eduardo De Simone. The green and black tones of the fabric make styling easy because of its versatility. Incorporating a pattern like plaid is fun to pick up colors elsewhere in your outfit. The jacket is fully lined with notch lapels and delicate shoulder padding. Quality always pays off.
If we may, for an elegant and classy match, pair your plaid jacket, with our Burgundy Cashmere Sleeveless Cardigan. Designed to be paired under tweed or wool, the tailored fit of our cardigans makes it the ideal layering piece. Our timeless cardigans are slightly shorter than others on the market because they are designed to be worn with high-waisted or medium-rise pleated trousers. Check out our size chart before ordering to ensure a perfect fit and a sharp look.
If you would like to go a bit dressier, add a Printed Silk Necktie in Oxford Blue by Francesco Marino Napoli to tie the look together. Francesco Marino creates 100% silk, bespoke ties according to the Neapolitan tailoring tradition. For over 70 years, the Marino family has been making tailored neckties.
Finally, to wrap up together your elegant look, add a pair of smooth calf leather shoes, Revers Oxfords by Velasca. The leather sole features a small rubber island, making each step more comfortable. This casually elegant collection features three colors, chocolate brown, black, and dark brown suede. The shoes are named after a jacket’s lapel and, of course, they are made in Italy as everything else in our gift guide.
Happy shopping and Merry Christmas!
