Shannon Stewart’s Best Gifts For Men 2017
With a rarified view of the best menswear has to offer, Shannon shares her top gift picks.
As one of our head buyers, Shannon Stewart regularly criss-crosses not only Canada visiting our stores but also the world’s fashion capitals. Milan, New York, Paris are frequent stamps on Shannon’s passport as she seeks out the world’s finest menswear to offer our clients.
With an eye on every product available at Harry Rosen, who better to weigh-in on the ultimate gift picks this holiday season?
Here’s what’s topping her list:
I love this cardigan because it has the structured look of a jacket but is made from super soft, plush wool which makes it very cozy. The overlock stitch on the edges also gives it a modern edge.
V-neck sweaters are always a popular gift at Christmas time; I would suggest trying a lighter weight that can either be worn over a dress shirt, or a t-shirt, and easily layered under a jacket. This v neck is spun from a luxurious blend of wool and silk. It comes in a few colours but this shade of berry is my favourite to add a bit of colour into a gentlemen’s wardrobe.
Troubadour is a new brand at Harry Rosen. I love the sturdy materials of this overnight bag (ballistic nylon and leather) and the understated clean lines. For the man who prefers to be under the radar and not flash any logos, it’s a great option.
Hestra is another new brand to Harry Rosen which produces handmade gloves in luxurious materials – these ones are cashmere lined peccary. These gloves will only get better with time, the more they are worn they will develop a beautiful patina and become even softer than they already are!
For those looking for the gift of luxury, this shearling is the ultimate – lightweight, the perfect shade of tan, accented by grey cashmere knit ribbing.
