Gentlemen's Guide: 10 Stylish Picks For The Holidays

November 29, 2017
With the festive season fast approaching and party invitations pouring in (which is also a precursor to the champagne flowing), it's time to think about party season outfits. We're talking velvet jackets and tassel loafers, or shearling leather jackets, cropped wool pants and even a Christmas-red sweater. From the casual office ‘do to the all-out charity ball, here are 10 stylish pieces for men to pair effortlessly:

Balenciaga shearling bombardier

The shearling jacket is a stylish and practical coat that pairs with any casual party outfit. Especially when it’s black and fashioned by none other than Balenciaga. The French brand’s leather bombardier, designed in Italy, is crafted from lamb nubuck leather and features a shearling lining that peeks out at the cuffs, hemline and collar, where the brand name is emblazoned in big white letters.

Mr P. rollneck sweater

The rollneck sweater is perfect for parties as a stylish statement piece on its own, or under a leather jacket or top coat. The key is finding one that’s chunky, colourful and beautifully made.

Mr P. has just the knit. Made in Italy, it’s made from a red, navy and ecru wool-blend and is finished with a ribbed rollneck and trims—in Santa red, of course. Pair with smart denim jeans or a woollen pant and bust out those chunky sole boots to finish the look.

Sacai trousers

Tailored trousers can still be fun for festivities. Pant up this party season with a pair of rock-esque woollen trousers from Sacai. Punctuated by a studded belt, the Japanese contemporary offers its belted trouser this season in a smoky grey. Matched with your sweater or jacket of choice, the flair is in the finer detail with a herringbone pattern and cropped leg, delivering a modern twist on a gentlemen’s classic.

Gucci boots

Gucci’s Horsebit loafer has galloped full-speed into a boot this season, and it’s just as covetable as its slip-on original. The Italian fashion house continues with the seventies square toe shape, clasped in gold-toned Horsebit hardware and bee detailing at the heel. Pair with wool tailored trousers and that ugly Christmas sweater you’ve been dying to drag out all year.

Dolce & Gabbana velvet jacket

The party season needs a suave blazer among its invitees, and Dolce & Gabbana have a jacket that’s dripping in Sicilian-cool. This luxurious velvet jacket features a slim fit and shawl lapel a la smoking, in a very seasonal fall-coloured baroque print. Pair with a crisp white shirt and black butterfly bowtie for a formal outfit that’s far from stuffy.

Paul Smith button down

Black is the new black when it comes to party season shirts. Paul Smith's cotton-poplin button down cuts a pleated bib panel and the British designer’s raw-coloured striped lining insignia, nestled just inside the double cuffs. With a pointed collar, curved hem, and pleats at the sides of the back yoke (excellent for broad shoulders), pair this quirky shirt that’s still black-tie worthy with a smoking jacket and suit pants.

Jan Leslie cufflinks

The party season demands fun, yet luxurious, accessories. Jan Leslie’s champagne cufflinks feature 925 sterling silver buckets and mini bottles of bubbly sat in crystal quartz ice cubes. With a whale back closure and an anti-tarnish rhodium finish, they are all flair and minimum fuss, making these cuffs the perfect unassuming party trick.

Givenchy pants

Posh but cool pants come via Givenchy this season. The Maison is relaxing formalities with the release of its Stars tailored pant, combining traditional tailoring with modern streetwear. The Parisian pants come cut from a wool and mohair blend and are decorated with metallic stars on either hip. Styled with a four pocket set up, belt loops and inset seams, get these bad boys for a dark, and smart, finish to your tailored look.

Christian Louboutin loafers

Step out in the allure of velour with the Stampato loafers by Christian Louboutin. Made in Italy, the slippers come crafted in a plush emerald velvet and subtle snakeskin patina. The round-toe shoe is a classic, and is punctuated with a black tassel on each. All the more reason to shimmy and shake on the dance floor this party season.

Jaeger LeCoultre watch

Arrive fashionably late with a Jaeger LeCoultre strapped lavishly to your wrist. Perfect for day-to-night, the Swiss silver-tone 'Geophysic Universal Time' watch boasts the brand’s True Second system and Gyrolab balance wheel. Got a plane to catch post-party? The watch is calibrated for travel across all 24 time zones, as seen in the artistry of the lacquered sunray dial, which shows a map of the world and the names of major cities. So international.
