Christmas Gifts for Him- Liberty London

Christmas is just around the corner, so here at Ruffians we’ve put together a Liberty London Christmas gift list to help give a kick-start to your Christmas shopping.

This year we thought we’d start with the boys and who better to help us with our gift ideas than the wonderful Ruffians Soho-Liberty team.

We asked our fabulous crew to scout the shelves and rails for a gift they’d be happy to receive this Christmas and lets just say, they didn’t let us down!

ALL BLUES

Silver Rope Polished Bracelet

£200

Liberty London

Ollie, Ruffians Liberty’s front of house, is renowned for his bling and is very often found staring wide eyed at the jewelry counter in the menswear accessories department at Liberty London.

But this magpie definitely has a great eye for something special and has chosen this ALL BLUES Silver Rope Polished Bracelet.

Ollie explains, ‘I love the whole All Blues range- it’s classy, simple but different. This bracelet would elevate any outfit, whether you’re at a dinner party or a night on the town!’

This stunning polished bracelet is engraved with the ALL BLUES logo, Stockholm hallmark and standard of fineness mark ensuring origin and material. Coming in three sizes, there’s sure to be a choice for everyone. Accompanied in a stylish gift box, this is a stocking filler sure to make any guys Christmas morning a very special one!

PENDLETON

Brownsville Shearling Collar Coat

£550

Liberty London

Our talented barber Matthew is well known for his quirky but trendy outfits and this choice is no exception!

Pendleton’s best-selling Brownsville coat returns for AW19 with a new jacquard pattern, inspired by age-old Native American marker trees.

‘This is a coat that even Starsky would be proud of. Its beautiful, timeless design means you’ll be looking great and keeping super warm this winter!’ Matt suggests.

‘For an effortless winter look, this coat can be worn with anything and will look awesome paired with a big pair of boots.’

Named after the Brownsville Woolen Mill, this coat is woven from the label’s signature blanket-weight wool. Cut to a generous length and accented with a genuine shearling collar, this timeless jacket is designed to keep you warm all season long.

ACNE STUDIOS

Toronty Wool-Blend Logo Jacquard Scarf

£180

Liberty London

The gorgeous Craig is Ruffians Soho-Liberty’s queen of accessories and surprisingly, this isn’t a tote bag.

‘This is a great quality, funky scarf that’s basic in colour and has a flash of branding,’ Craig tells us.

‘I’d wear it over a gilet or overcoat. It’s a blanket sized scarf, so great for the colder days!’

Showcasing the impeccable quality and addictive texture, this supremely soft, wool-blend scarf takes on an oversized, blanket-inspired silhouette with a large contrasting logo.

Drape it around your neck over outerwear in crisp weather, or snuggle up on the sofa wrapped in its felted wool cosiness.

WANT LES ESSENTIELS DE LA VIE

Branson Leather Cardholder

£80

Liberty London

‘I like things to be simple,’ our newest barber Simon told us.

‘There’s nothing worse than carrying around a huge wallet that takes up all your pocket room. This sleek and simple cardholder is perfect for the essentials: ID, credit card and a bit of cash. The fact it’s black means it goes with EVERYTHING- smart or casual!’

The leather construction offers an updated take on a simple piece, offering four card slots along with a main pocket section.

This Want les Essentials de la Vie’s Branson leather card holder is a smart grab-and-go essential this Christmas.

CARHARTT WIP

Michigan Aged Organic Cotton Chore Coat

£185

Liberty London

‘This is right up my street and could be worn by both guys and gals! With ample pockets, there’s no need for a bag or bulky trouser pockets!’ barber Keri says.

‘I love the simplicity of this jacket. The colour is versatile enough that it could be dressed up or down. It would look great for a night out or worn after work for a quick drink. I’d personally wear it with some cropped jeans or trousers, a plain tee and a pair of DMs!’

Staying true to its workwear roots, Carhartt WIP’s Michigan coat is crafted from hard-wearing organic cotton canvas.

Offering maximum durability and protection, this water-resistant jacket is designed to be worn day in and day out. Subtly distressed for a worn-in look, the aged canvas fabric will soften with wear, creating a jacket that is unique to you!

EDWIN

Sunset On Mount Fuji Hoodie

£95

Liberty London

‘A staple for any man’s wardrobe,’ manager Betty explains.

‘If my fiance had this hoodie, he’d literally live in it. Walking the dog, drinks with mates or out Christmas Shopping. If he wasn’t wearing it, I’d definitely be borrowing it! It’s a quality hoodie, fits nicely and would look great under any of the jackets chosen by the boys! The neat motif adds a bit of charm to it and makes it stand out from the usual high street hoodie!’

Crafted from brushed Felpa, this minimalistic piece features an attached hood with drawstring, accented with the label’s Sunset On Mount Fuji logo in contrasting colours. It’s finished with a handy front kangaroo pocket!

Don’t forget, whilst visiting Liberty London this Christmas, you can also pop in and purchase our brand new Ruffians product range from our Soho-Liberty shop, located in Menswear on LG. Our Styling Paste, Argan Beard Oil and Marine Salt Spray make fabulous stocking fillers!
