Christmas time has passed and you didn’t get a damn thing that you wanted.
You gave everyone your lists, kept it pretty minimal, but your loved ones decided to branch out to “surprise” you. While it is always the thought that counts, cool gifts are a little bit sweeter. Luckily, you have your aunts, uncles and grandparents who don’t even bother trying to buy a gift and throw you some cold, hard cash. God bless those relatives. There’s only one place you need take that dough; Badowers. Treat yourself to some of the coolest items they have in store that I just so happen to be planning on getting myself. So, actually, don’t treat yourself just yet…
Gant Rugger Winter Fly Coat- I feel like an urban version of Sir Edmund Hillary in this, but I can assure you I will be ascending no treacherous mountains. This is truly the definition of luxurious swagger. Nylon shell to keep the evil elements of Des Moines winters away with fur-lining that’s basically like turning your pinky up when you drink tea.
Filson 1912 Cruiser Shirt- A good flannel can go a long way. But a great flannel like this Cruiser shirt from Filson will take you where ever the hell you want to go. It’s limited edition so you will be one of like 8* people who own it (*not an accurate number) and ithe 24oz virgin Yukon wool is super comfy-cozy-snuggly like your favorite blanky that you still own but don’t tell anyone about.
Baldwin Ryan Navy – You will probably hear me say these Ryan pants from Baldwin are a perfect fitting pair of pants and think I’m just saying it to promote them. But I wouldn’t be promoting them here and saying they were the perfect fitting pair of pants unless they were. Did you follow all of that? These are the perfect fitting pair of pants throughout the leg and down to it’s tapered hem so they flair out like the bootcuts you wore in 11th grade.
Todd Snyder Cashmere Waffle Sweater- Cashmere, bro. CASHMERE. I really don’t know any other way to describe this Todd Snyder Waffle Sweatshirt. This sweater actually leaves me dazed and confused its so great. I blurt out things like “cranberries!” or “zoom zoom in ya boom boom” when I see them. I know, I know, who needs a $795 cashmere sweater? You do, that’s who, damnit.
Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots – Everyone needs a good pair of shit-kickers this winter (I think I’m allowed to say that?) Especially ones that are a viable choice of footwear in at least two other seasons. The craftsmanship and premium materials Wolverine uses on these make them not only a sight for sore eyes, but long lasting so they’re the shit-kickingest.
