Lucky gents

Anyone who thinks a tie makes for a boring holiday gift doesn’t know Salvatore Ferragamo’s ties — luxurious silk creations with flair to spare. It was no surprise that we came across them while looking at the latest offerings from Neiman Marcus. As you can imagine, there were enough options to fill a book.

Actually they do fill The Book, NM’s periodic catalog, whose holiday edition bursts with options ideal for the men on your list, from husband to son, father to brother.

Sure, the luxe retailer’s fantasy gifts always garner the most attention — but we know most of us will end up shopping from the rest of The Book, including for the men in our lives.

So we checked in with our sources at Neiman Marcus Westchester, who happily supplied us with complete details.

Catching our attention are quite a few things, particularly selections in The Man’s Store from Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci and Shinola.

When it comes to Salvatore Ferragamo, standouts include tortoise shell/red acetate sunglasses with brown lenses ($260) and those previously mentioned printed silk ties, Horseshoe in red and Gancini in blue ($190 each).

Gucci puts a pair of brown calfskin lace-up wing-tip shoes ($850) in the spotlight, accented with its green/red signature web and gold embroidered bee ($850).

Shinola’s stylish leather accessories include The Runwell backpack ($995), available in navy, black or brown; a passport wallet ($150) that comes in navy, black, natural or orange; or The Runwell stainless-steel watch with rose golden PVD-plated case, navy dial and oxblood leather strap ($600). (The guy on the go might also enjoy a TUMI bag. The black carbon fiber collection includes the Watkins backpack, $995, and the Donington wheeled carry-on, $2,495.)

For the Mad Man in your life, what about Filson’s tan twill and brown/dark brown leather briefcase ($395)? He can sign on the dotted line with Dunhill’s black resin and palladium plate Sentryman ballpoint pen ($530).

Out on the town? The Stefano Ricci cranberry/blue windowpane cashmere and silk jacket ($6,375) is particularly striking. Add that finishing touch to any ensemble with the Eton black silk bow tie ($98), which will carry your guy throughout the holiday season in fine style.

At the end of the day, he can unwind in UGG Australia’s select signature sleepwear that includes a red/black plaid cotton and polyester robe ($155) or the black leather Ascot slipper with off-white UGGpure wool lining ($160).

One gift, two gifts… Only you can decide just how good he has been this year.
