Finding the ideal gift for the men in your life may be one of the most difficult tasks to conquer. So, what do you get the man who has everything? Why not go for something outside the box while still incorporating everyday accessories that he can actually use.
For men especially, it is hard to find that magical balance between stylishly-chic and blasé. Hex Tie has something for every dapper gent. What makes this brand so distinctive is that it includes something for everyone – the thrill seeker, the fashionisto, the life of the party, the artists and everything in between.
First there were skinny jeans, then lightweight man-scarves, and now the infamous man-bun. Everywhere you look, there seems to be a constant barrage of newfangled men’s fashion trends and must-have looks. But when it comes down to it, how much must the well-dressed man have? Sometimes you just have to go back to basics.
In a career that demands professionalism, there is no reason to have to forego statement pieces. The Gold London Bridge garment clip is the perfect subtle, yet eye-catching piece to jazz up apparel. Pair it with a classic blue blazer to start, especially if it’s fitted and sharply tailored. Favored by hedge fund managers and hipsters alike, the London Bridge Garment Clip is to men what a little black dress is to women—dependable, versatile and timeless. It’s an investment piece that can be worn for years.
