Today’s must-reads from around the Internet.
Happens every year right around this time, like clockwork: you need to find gifts to give…
And, more importantly: gifts to receive.
But time is too precious to spend leafing through the overwhelming number of gift guides out there—all of them filled with enough gadgetry, machinery and sockery to require another guide just to get through all of these gift guides… So that’s exactly what we’re doing, culling through it all—and pulling out the best stuff in this handy be-all, end-all guide. (You may want to conspicuously leave this guide open in as many computer browsers as possible.)
’Tis the season… to smell magnificent.
And woodsy. And scotch-y.
So to help you cultivate the proper air of winter wonderlandliness, we’ve assembled the following wintry mix of cedar, scotch and other stately scents—all bottled for your spritzing pleasure.
As you’ll recall, we spent a whole week preparing you for your holiday travel in style.
But now that you’ll actually be embarking upon your travel, it’s time to get real. So we’ve put together this handy guide on what exactly your travel style is projecting to the rest of the world—and, more specifically, where people might assume you’re jetting off to (needless to say, wearing your neck pillow in the terminal isn’t going to be looked upon kindly).
It’s something you tend to forget when the temperatures begin descending toward bone-chilling: the sun will still be out.
And more than likely, it will continue to shine directly into your eyes. (Or, worse, make for some blinding glare off a fresh coat of snow.) Which means you shouldn’t be taking your eyewear any more lightly this time of year. Fortunately, we’ve rounded up the season’s finest new offerings.
It’s a small world—and with hoteliers, restaurateurs and designers all traveling in the same circles, it was only a matter of time before they began collaborating.
Which is a good thing. Lately we’ve been noticing more and more well-appointed maître d’s, concierges and even pilots thanks to some of the more forward-thinking collaborations.
We’ve filtered through all of the online sale noise and graded your best options out there, should you feel inclined to do any menswear browsing this weekend…
