Looking for last minute ideas for that hard-to-shop-for guy?
Frank Muytjens, Head of Men's Design at J.Crew (fans of the brand include George Clooney, Justin Timberlake, Jake Gyllenhaal and Seth Rogen), has a few stylish suggestions for anyone on your list.
COZY CARDIGAN: Our Fair Isle Alpaca cardigan is warm and cozy enough to pick up the newspaper in the morning, and stylish enough to not just wear during the holidays. For a modern look try it layered with a t-shirt or for more rugged festive look try it over a buffalo plaid flannel shirt
DAPPER SUIT: For dressier occasions, there are our Ludlow Suits in English Flannel We love the sturdy, more hefty-then-usual English wool from Fox Brothers, a mill around since the 1700's...It's like buying a piece of English history. Great as a suit, or wear the jacket by itself as a piece of outerwear.
CLASSIC DENIM: This is one of our most versatile pieces around...a classic denim jacket which never will go out of style. A great way to update the denim look: wear it with dark rinsed jeans, old military boots and an old military belt...or mix it up and add our Navy English Flannel Ludlow jacket for a tonal navy, inky look.
FUNCTIONAL FOOTWEAR: The Macalister Field boot is probably the most versatile boot around...perfect for that stroll on the beach after x-mas dinner. The more beat up they get, the better they look. You'll want more than just one color....
WARM AND TOASTY: Our Marled Camp Socks are all you need to wear around the house when you're making breakfast and it's snowing outside... I know I do....And it doesn't hurt that they come in great colors as well....the tight knit makes sure that no warmth will escape, so your feet will stay nice and toasty.
