    A.P.C merino wool cardigan

    Cardigans are often considered a staple for grandads, but when they’re made with 100% merino wool with a zip fastening and mod-esque collar, we’d gladly put our family in a care home if it meant bagging one of these from their wardrobe (just kidding, love you grandad).

    Shinola Detroit fixie bike

    Keeping fit come January is difficult with it being all cold and depressing. But when exercise looks this good, we’ll happily ditch Netflix for the open road.

    Sage coffee machine by Hesthen Blumenthal

    Who wouldn’t be proud to have this in their kitchen? It’s on a BB-8 level of robotic coolness, which can grind beans straight into the filter and boasts 18 grind settings as well as instant hot water. BB-8 can’t even make you a cup of tea. We hate you, BB-8.

    Larsson & Jennings watch

    Black and gold. Is there a classier colour combination? If there is, we’re too poor to know about it. A clean blacked out timepiece that’ll age well and go with everything.

    Reiss wool check suit

    You might not wear a suit everyday, but every man needs a decent suit in his arsenal, prepare to pull out for weddings, job interviews and other momentous life celebrations. Don’t buy cheap and chance having your crotch split while you skid on your knees to the DJ, spend a little more and have a suit last you a lifetime.

    LG 4k oled 55" ultra hd tv

    With more shows than ever being shown as 4K this Christmas, a state of the art telly is a must. Imagine watching Planet Earth 2 on this thing? You’d literally have a panic attack with all the snakes slithering out of your screen.

  • Christmas gift guide 2016 - £200 and over 11

    Tom Ford aftershave

    The combination of rose wood and cardamom gives a smoky smell, making this scent even more masculine (and, well, all round nicer) than a post-gym sweat combined with a freshly cracked can of Stella Artois.


  • Christmas gift guide 2016 - £200 and over 12

    Comme Des Garcons camo blazer

    When you have to intercept an enemy target at 5PM but go out with the lads at 8PM, this three button camo blazer by one of the most hyped brands around will make sure you’re ready for both.

    Burberrry check topcoat

    Beats by Dre wireless headphones

    Apple has decided that wires aren’t a thing anymore, so might as well bag someone a pair of decent wireless headphones they will use, because those little buds won’t last five minutes. This jet black pair are perfect for running and the sound is absolutely phenomenal.
