Feature: Menswear Christmas Gifts

Charles Matthews gives us the lowdown on his top Menswear choices for festive gift-giving. Santa, you got that?

Home at Christmas I’ll probably be found watching documentaries on The National Geographic Channel. If like me you’re inspired to go green, Joseph Turvey has an offbeat explorer look with a leafy green dopey feel that’s geeky and fresh.


If you’re looking for that special something that screams ‘the crystal maze / sci-fi / gothic disco / and sex in one aesthetic, Simon Preen had a mystic meg moment and created this yaoi top for your suggestive festive pleasure


This parka by Christopher Raeburn is arctic friendly. Epic but laid back at the same time, the pockets are beastly and blocky and will let you stand out from the snow in a loud punch of orange.


An urban bird of prey by Christopher Shannon.


A bowler hat from Child of the Jago that has a Dr Seuss sense of surreal, larger than life with quirky wilderness charm.


Matthew Miller delivers sharp suits to keep the relatives happy about your welfare, but with a sleeveless take you’ll still be looking like a risk taker.

Join the gothic legion with a sticky sweet and dark outfit with romantic wartime reference and post apocalyptic instinct. call it an outfit that would outlast skeletons. Look no further than Asger Juel Larsen for that sinister but playful wardrobe whatever the season.


Asos marketplace is a playground of hot new designers just breaking out. These two-way denim trousers from The Left Bank put the power in your hands, letting you manipulate the way it’s worn. A versatile treat for the forward thinking gent!
