A holiday gift guide for your gay best friend
Gays have great taste, and to this day we’re not really sure why. Call it an appreciation for detail—or a cunning desire for the best. We like our clothes, toys, and accessories to reflect a sophistication our best lady friends have come to rely on. So what does one get a Gay with impeccable taste? Here are a few suggestions to keep your men in a rarefied class of their own.
Check it out! J. Crew teamed up with vintage connoisseur Hiroshi Kato to create a capsule collection of some of the best utilitarian check patterned shirts for guys that like the rough trade look, without all the grease stains.
While the general population heads to the local sunglass shop to purchase any pair of aviators in sight, a more discerning and tasteful gay deserves something from Morgenthal Frederics for a pair of their solid buffalo horn frames. We suggest the Super Avenger, or Shiek styles. Stand out of the crowd.
There’s no getting around it, a man looks more solid and reliable in a tweed sport coat. Keep him in the pink with a sharp and tailored fit from Freemans Sporting Club.
Keep your man ready for action, either on the work front or for any spur of the moment adventure. This upright briefcase from one of America’s best leather tanneries, Moore & Giles, is the perfect accessory to any outfit.
When push comes to shove, a man’s accessories should do all the talking. His jeans should be subtle and solid, like the rigid indigo jeans by Spurr. Consider them the essential building block to an outfit.
Getting dandy hasn’t been this much fun since the days of Oscar Wilde and his expressive cohorts. Complete your favorite boy’s ensemble with Lanvin’s Flower Tie Pin, a whimsical accent to pull entire outfit together.
Add that punk rock flare to your guy’s attire with pyramid-studded cufflinks. It’ll give him that edge at the office.
Kick it up a notch. They say you can tell a lot about a man by his shoes. And with this double-laced boot everyone will be able to tell they’ve got a savvy player on their hands.
If a man has to be seen carrying a tablet around town, he might at as well carry it in style. Prada’s iPad case should add a little mimetic spice to life in the 21st century.
While we’re on the subject of tech, this alarm clock mixes nostalgia with the present’s latest technology. An iPhone dock that snaps your phone, or iPod Touch, into position to mimic the classic LCD deck. The wood source is renewable and the flare is everlasting.
Sometimes you just don’t have the time or energy to find a date that wont disappoint. Our friends down under (Australia–get your mind out of the gutter) bring us the Sensational Inflatable Boyfriend. Just break open the pouch and watch him self inflate. Like a good date should. It’s the perfect stocking stuffer.
