Seasonal style — and sips

Our Chic Choices column in our current issue is devoted to gifts for the men on your holiday list.

And, as you can imagine, there are countless options out there – more than can fill the printed page.

We’d like to continue our suggestions here with a few ideal for those fellas who are partial to things of old.

  • When we saw the new Monte Carlo collection from Rosanna Inc., we knew just the guys it would appeal to. This collection of retro-themed barware and accessories makes a decidedly old-school statement, a collection that would definitely please those who loved “Mad Men.” (And, of course, that means plenty of women, too.). From decanters ($72) to coasters ($48 for a set of four) to double old-fashioned glasses ($94 for a set of four), the options are as chic as they are practical. Shop well.
  • Those in search of a seasonal sip (that would be fitting any time of the year, come to think of it) might want to check out Usquaebach, a Scotch whisky based on the heritage, history and tradition of the Scottish Highlands. Usquaebach 15 Year Old ‘Pure’ Malt Scotch Whisky ($80 for 750mL) is matured for at least 15 years in European oak and sherry casks, offering a “dark, leathery color and nose full of stewed fruits and nutmeg” for discerning connoisseurs around the world. And the name? Usquaebach (pronounced “oos-ke-bah”) is derived from the ancient Gaelic phrase meaning “the water of life.” Cheers!
