We get it. It's 2020, you're stressed to the max and the holidays will be here faster than your therapist's bill. You don't want to gift the same old ugly sweater but who's got the energy to search for a fabulous and unique gift? It's cool, we understand. We want to make this holiday easier for you (like, 2019 easy) so we've curated a collection of the coolest gifts for every guy on your list. From traditional dad's, favorite brothers, awesome uncles, free-spirited friends, and mysterious lovers, we've searched far and wide for the things we think he (and you!) will appreciate. So take a deep breath, relax and check out the first in our series of fabulous guides - Gifts for the King of Cool.
Let's face it, cool 'dudeness' starts with a leather jacket. The Per28 is a heavyweight hand vintaged cowhide jacket inspired by a 1928 D-pocket style. Schott starts the break-in process to give it just enough wear to make it looked properly lived in. The red cotton plaid lining and corduroy kicker add comfort and warmth. Made in the USA. $1,035.00
There's nothing like a premium pair of jeans, especially those crafted by the ancient master-weavers of Japan. Shrouded in secrecy, Oni keeps the exact details of its elusive weaving methods tightly under wraps. According to legend, each pair is handwoven on a vintage shuttle loom by one such weaver named Oishi-San. Whatever the methods, the resulting selvedge denim jeans will up his game to the max. From $295
Let's face it, his phone is for late-night DM's, not for checking the time. What he really wants is a piece of expertly crafted engineering on his wrist because hey, it's a machine, and it's cool. Dress Blues is the perfect everyday mechanical watch that we like to call "The Daily Rocker". Like him, it's rugged on the outside and complicated on the inside. $1,185.00
Candles that smell like whiskey and leather? Sexy as hell. No. 8 Hedonist fuses top notes of whiskey and mandarin blended with the embrace of leather and musks. He'll feel his inner alpha breaking out of the box. Be careful what you unleash! $65.00

Who doesn't have a man-crush on McQueen? This book is a photographic study of Steve McQueen as seen through the eyes of his friend and photographer William Claxton. Stunt man, bad boy, Casanova: Claxton’s evocative black-and-white images reveal the many sides of McQueen while transporting us back to the ’60s and ’70s when the King of Cool ruled and our biggest worries were how to grow the perfect sideburns. $157.00
Have you ever seen a guy pull out a plastic shopping bag jammed with razor, deodorant and who knows what? Yeah, I have too. Get him the OLG Dopp Kit by Odin, handmade with top quality full-grain leather that - like our Stella straps - will only get better with age. The design is simple and utilitarian but way better looking than the bag from Food Mart. $95.00
If he hasn't tried Japanese Whiskey yet, get him a bottle of Suntory Whisky Toki™ ASAP. Traditionally crafted according to Suntory's Art of Blending philosophy, with the quintessential characteristics of a Suntory Blend: exquisite balance, harmony, and oneness. The flavor is light, silky, and clean with hints of apple mixed in with honey notes for a singular experience. For the ultimate gift, add custom engraving. $52.00
We hope you find this guide useful for all the straight-up cool guys (or ladies!) in your life. Whatever gifts you lavish on your family and friends, remember, there is no greater gift than Peace, Love, and Understanding. (volume on!)
Wishing you the happiest holiday season,
Marcella and Stephen
