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!
