Struggling to decide what to buy a fashion-conscious fella for Christmas? We've got it covered.
‘Men are so hard to buy for’ is a line that’s heard this time of year almost as often as, ‘All I want for Christmas is yoooouuuuu’, as you dash around the shops desperately looking for something that will please your Dad/big bro/boyfriend/that cousin you haven’t seen in years…
And if the man in question is one who prides himself on being a dedicated follower of fashion, then you’ve really got to up your game (or put the receipt in with the card and accept that your carefully chosen gift is going straight back to the shop on Boxing Day).
Help is at hand, however. We’ve trawled the seasonal offerings of a host of retailers to find the presents that will delight even the most demanding dudes.
You’ll find no novelty socks here, only the most stylish clothes and accessories, from winter warmers to travel essentials and even Uggs for men (yes, really).
