Thom Browne New York Slim Fit Wool Trouser – These stylish pairs of pants can be seen so often on the runway!

These trousers by Thom Browne are absolutely perfect if the gift is for someone who loves to experiment with fabrics and designs but is great for anyone who is into sustainable fashion as Merino wool is sustainable material. Especially someone who’s a fashion enthusiast. Pair these pants with buttoned sweaters or even a simple plain shirt and make a classy impression.
Mission Belt – A majority of the guys you know wear belts. It’s a fashion accessory that’s very important to men. Mission belt makes a comeback in our this year’s gift guide (See Manliest Gift Guide 2017). This time, we’d like to present the mission belt that just released on Nov 16, 2018.
Made from Italian full-grain leather that is sourced from the French countryside and vegetable-tanned in the Tuscan region of Italy. This time-tested dying process is known for developing a beautiful patina with use making each belt unique. Its natural aging will enhance its appeal and will not compromise durability.
The best part of these belts: they do not have any holes and are fully adjustable to any waist length!
