The Mont-Royal Coat, $330
For the cold winter months ahead, the Mont-Royal coat by Cardinal of Canada will keep men warm without sacrificing fashion. It’s 100% fine wool coat cut in a classic car silhouette, which makes it easy to be dressed-up or dressed-down depending on the occasion. The Mont-Royal coat is available in black, charcoal or navy melange so you can pick the colour the best compliments his wardrobe.
Bellroy Slim Sleeve Wallet, $99.95
The slim design of Bellroy’s signature wallet keeps all the essentials without the bulky pocket effect. Environmentally certified buttery leather ages gracefully over time and comes in neutral colours, but don’t be afraid to go with an unexpected hue like Eucalyptus or Burnt Orange.
Harry’s Winter Winston Set, $30
From the company that redefined shaving products, Harry’s Winter Winston gift set is beautifully-designed box with a razor and foaming gel. The limited edition midnight blue handle will look like an art piece on his bathroom shelf. For the man who appreciates details, this razor upgrades one of the most basic items he uses. Make it more memorable by adding a personalized engraving on the razor handle.
Daneson Single Malt Toothpicks, $35.99
Ok, he might think artisanal toothpicks are little bit crazy but stylish gifts don’t always have to be practical. He’s also going to change his mind when he tries these boozy, peaty slivers of wood. The set of single malt toothpicks comes in a corked glass tube that also conveniently fits in a front coat pocket for easy access.
Owen & Fred Custom Brass Collar Stays, $45
Add a custom edge to a wardrobe classic with these brass collar stays. They’ll ensure that his shirts are crisp and look professional straight from the closet. It’s a gift that will last a lifetime, so make sure you choose the right engraving. You can stick with his name or go with an inside joke that will make him think about you each time he buttons up a button-down.
Just like Cardinal of Canada coats, this scarf is 100% wool and designed with freezing cold winters in mind. The oversized cashmere will protect against wind and snow in the softest way possible. It will quickly become of his most prized possessions as the weather takes a turn.
Want Les Essentiels Kenyatta Dopp Kit, $370
We’re big fans of this international brand that started in Montreal—just like Cardinal of Canada. It combines the practicality of travelling in harsh climates with a European aesthetic sensibility. The Kenyatta Dopp Kit is perfect for the stylish man on-the-go. Because of its size, this dopp kit is tailored towards longer trips that require more grooming products.
Shinola G-10 Belt, $195
Setting the standard for leather products, Detroit-based Shinola’s G-10 belt will go with every stylish outfit. It’s simple enough to blend in, and yet, anyone with an eye for details will clock its quality. If it’s time to upgrade his belt, you can’t go wrong with Shinola.

When you’re combining fashion and technology, you need to make sure you’re buying the best option. These gloves by Moshi are the highest rated for touch screens by multiple expert reviewers that pay attention to everything from first use to wear and tear over time. The dual-layered Moshi design gives each fingertip a special conductive fiber that captures accurate gestures on smartphones and tablets. Plus, the microfleece inner lining will keep his hands warm.
Happy Socks Stripe Gift Set, $45
He’ll be stylish head to toe with these four pairs of Happy Socks in classic designs. The red, white and blue patterns are office appropriate without being stuffy. They work with dress shoes or a cozy cotton layer in snow boots. We like the striped gift box that houses all four pairs—this Swedish company knows how to make a gift feel special.
