Let’s Hear It for the Boys

What do guys want? Who knows? But the holidays are upon us, and you’d better figure it out.

For Dad
Forget the boring old cravat and go instead for a tie with unconventional designs and expert craftsmanship from Prep & Pauper. He’ll be the hippest guy at the office, especially if you toss in some Dunhill cuff links (Boyds, 1818 Chestnut Street; 215-564-9000).


For Bro
Give him something to do besides making gross noises in your presence. Get him the world’s smallest remote controlled car. It’s the size of a AAA battery, and it’s fast. Sure to keep him out of your hair for at least twenty minutes. To further distract him, stuff his stocking with a spy pen. It’s got a built in camera, so he can start his own personal surveilance system.

see joe the barber!

For Your Fashionista 
Get him A.P.C. jeans and a Relwen jacket from Sugarcube (124 North Third Street; 215-238-0825). Hook him up with a classic shave and haircut with Joe the Barber at Groom (1315 Walnut Street, suite 119; 215-545-5070). If he wants to do it himself, Matthew Izzo (1109 Walnut Street; 215-829-0606) has Malin + Goetz products for face and body.

For Your Main Man
You know what you have to do: Get him an iPhone (AT&T, 33 South 16th Street; 215-557-6866). That’s basically it. It’ll also work for pretty much everyone else on your list, too. Sad, but true.
