Christmas gifts for the man in your life from

The gifts above are all available from Coes. First is the Gentleman’s Hardware Buff & Shine shoe shine kit. At £15 it’s a really nice stocking filler to keep his shoes in tip top condition. Next to that is the Secrid card wallet which you’ll see more of in one of the videos below. At £50 I’m a real fan of this modern take on the traditional wallet.  To the right of the wallet is the CHPO Harrold Watch with tan leather strap. It’s a very classic design and will suit most guys. Lastly are some great fur lined gloves by Dents, again there’s more on those in the video.

I hope there’s some items in the video that work for you. In the video below you’ll find my top three picks from Base London shoes which I’ve styled with clothing from Burton & Next. The first shoes are Page in washed tan, I’ve styled these with some blue skinny fit jeans and a burgundy polo knit from Burton Menswear which is available in stores for £20.00

In the second look with the Bartley Fringed Brogue in burnished cocoa, I’m wearing them with a great tan textured double breasted suit from Next. Also from Next is the cream floral print shirt.

And for the last pair of shoes; the Floyd waxy black Chelsea boots, I’ve gone full on party dapper with a burgundy velvet blazer with satin trim from Burton Menswear which is available in stores for £75. With the blazer I’m wearing a black rose print Jacquard shirt and skinny black trousers, again from Burton.

I hope there are some ideas in there that you can use this Christmas. Whether is a stocking filler pair of cuff links or a full double breasted suit, I’m sure whatever it is that you choose from my own and Jared’s suggestions will be perfect for that special guy.
