Style for Christmas: A Man For All Seasons

This story is for the all important men in our lives. Be they dapper gents, men of distinction, outdoor types, practical, hysterical or inspiring – they are the men who love us, just as we are.

Glamping has never been so effortless with The Elder Statesman’s suede and cashmere sleeping bag (very Coachella), Stanley drink flasks and très chic tin mugs from Third Drawer Down. The ‘Kill Your Friends’ soundtrack has been touted as the next major film soundtrack, with a Britpop tracklist including Blur, Oasis & Radiohead – could it ever really rival ‘Trainspotting’? You decide.

I wanted to create a fun themed ‘gift giving’ series that reflects who The Garb Wire is. To do this I selected films from the New York Times Best 1000 Movies Ever Made list, then hunted & gathered products inspired by those titles.
