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