Vintage Gift Guide: For the Boys

The last of the vintage gift guides, but it's a very important one.  Buying for my husband, dad, and brothers-in-law is pretty difficult without a specific list--and those lists tend to be pretty boring.  But here are some cool gifts that any vintage-appreciating dude could dig (taking a cue from gifts I've gotten my own man!).

The Gifts

1.  Navy Wool Peacoat, $86 via capricorne

A classic for every man's wardrobe--he will wear it forever.  This one has gold buttons, but I love the plastic nautical buttons as well, for a more understated look.

2.  Mid-Century Roly Poly Shot Glass Set, SOLD! via WiseApple

Did you DIY a bar cart this year?  Well, here's a pretty little addition (include a bottle of Bulleit for good measure).  These sold prior to post, but find similar sets here and here.

3. Leather-Bound Tape Measurer, $22 via Rustage

These old tape measurers are way cooler than the metal ones.  Q has one from his grandfather. It's a useful gift, but also makes for "manly" decor (hang it on the wall, put it on a bookshelf, etc.).

4.  Christian Dior Tie, $22 via Vintage Fatale

If your guy has to wear a tie to work every day (like mine!), vintage ties are a great go-to because you can find high-end brands for cheap (or skinny versions for your hipster stud).

5.  Retro Tee Shirt, $28 via retroEra

What guy doesn't love a good worn-in tee shirt? (A gift that the guy's significant other can appreciate just as much!)

6. Western Plaid Snap Shirt, $28 via memoryvintage

I just love how these shirts look.  I've acquired quite a few for the husband--I really love Levi's ones.

7.  Leather Belt with Buckle, $46 via thedapperapple

Belts with removable buckles make a great gift because you can start a buckle rad is this one? (For the more daringly-dressed man in your life...)

8.  Grandpa Cardigan, $35 via legitvintage

He may not be a grandpa yet (or ever), but this is a cardigan you can throw on over a button up or a tee and call it a day.

Which gift would you give your man?
