GIFT guide for the practical GUYS
We’re smitten by the BONOBOS understandable guide of fab things for the guys. There’s no overly decorated holiday anything on this site, and the guide is layed out as “organized things” that look ready to pack. From travel jeans to the plaid guy shirt, the crew neck in a new color to salt and pepper shakers, you can find everything for the guys here.

1 Travel Jeans – Plymouth Pilsner $98. American denim with a hint of stretch, and a great color too.
