MENSWEAR STYLE VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT GUIDE 2021
Valentine’s Day will certainly be different this year. There will be no romantic dates to fancy restaurants, trips to the theatre or a night out at your favourite intimate cocktail bar. This year we’re going to have to do the cooking ourselves and spend the evening watching Netflix with our significant other. With all that money saved, the gift for your loved one should be a little extra special. To give you some inspiration, here’s some ideas from the MenswearStyle editorial team:
RS No.9 Carnaby Pantone Stones Red Crewneck
A dynamic and powerful life force, Stones Red captures the bold spirit, rebellious attitude, and adventurous temperament that are the unique hallmarks of the globally iconic rock and roll band. Captivating and charismatic, the fiery nature of this unique red shade embodies the intense passion and innovative musical style. This apparel and accessories collection celebrates the official Pantone colour Stones Red with an exclusive launch at RS No. 9 Carnaby St (in store and online). The Stones Red Embossed Classic Tongue Crewneck features a red large classic Rolling Stones tongue embossed on the front of a super soft red crewneck.
CODE41 NB24 Watch
Rather than going with a simple standard movement, CODE41 have made the mad move of creating an exceptional movement with a peripheral weight integrated into the dial side. As the chronograph is one of their partner Concepto's specialties, they've been able to make use of their base, constructed using the architecture of the famous 7750 movement, known for its robustness and reliability. Then they've modified it by moving the counters, redesigning the bridges, and above all, adding a peripheral weight on the dial side.
Bulldog Shower Gel
Give your significant other the gift of quality shower time. Bulldog’s environmentally conscious and vegan-friendly shower gels use gentle, naturally derived cleansers, natural fragrances and bottles made of 100% recycled plastic. These shower gels also come in an oversize 500ml bottles to cut down on the amount of packaging per wash.
Wrangler Heritage Jeans
Wrangler gives two favourite jean fits some authentic heritage style. The straight fit Greensboro has a relaxed feel and regular thigh for a classic look. The Larston is a modern slim tapered fit, with a sleeker look but with stretch added to the denim for movement. Four new worn-in washes are introduced: a classic vintage indigo, an aged lighter denim, a vintage faded blue and a time honoured black. Well-placed distressed details, along with nostalgic graphics featuring on the inner pockets, create the authentic heritage look.
Roja Parfums Burlington 1819
1819 opens with a bright burst of Citrus notes and fresh Mint, which excite the senses much like the experience of walking down London's Burlington Arcade and being struck by the beauty of Roja's esteemed window displays. A spicy spark of ginger continues the energy of this fresh Oriental accord, as a deep and luxurious base begins to unfurl. The distinctive and familiar-feeling qualities of Patchouli and Casmir Wood mingle with the enveloping qualities of Tobacco and Benzoin, to form a sumptuous Eau De Parfum creation, rich in personality.

Outdoor Fellow Rosa Moschata Candle
No.7 Rosa Moschata is the scientific name for Musk Rose and is the newest addition to the Outdoor Fellow candle collection. This beautiful white flower is thought to have originated in the Himalayas and has an alluring musky, rose scent. Sweet patchouli and warm amber ground the scent. Tonka bean adds depth and a hint of exoticism while the sunniness of bergamot adds a touch of zest to this complex and rich fragrance.
Hamilton and Hare Boxer Short
Independent British brand Hamilton and Hare have launched the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for men, The Pink Stripe Boxer Short. Crafted in England using small-scale producers, the premium pink stripe boxer short features Hamilton and Hare’s signature bestselling slimline tailored cut, using the finest 100% natural two-ply twill cotton for incredible comfort. Including an elasticated back and side panel, the boxers will not roll up your leg or ruin the line of your trousers, allowing total freedom of movement. Alongside this cotton pair, Hamilton and Hare also offer a luxurious cotton cashmere boxer short. Light, and beautifully soft, this pair will ensure ultimate comfort.
Leathersmith of London St Pauls Notebook
Inspiration is taken from classic book binding skill and style from early hymn books and bibles, and is lovingly recreated today using the same craftsmanship used in days gone by. From the hand turned edges of the soft goat skin leather covers to the timeless art gilded page edges, this stunning collection is a worthy addition to the Leathersmith range. A lightweight ivory paper with cool grey printed rules and vivid marble style endpapers makes these beautiful books the perfect place for making notes for work or and home.
Lacoste Match Break Sneakers
Inspired by running models from the archives, this sneaker features a vintage sports aesthetic while concealing contemporary technical features, which makes a link between elegance and the French craftsmanship. The Match Break comes in a plain canvas upper, whose natural texture is enhanced by subtle patterns, like the visible seams structuring the signature crocodile at the core. Leather overlays embody its upscale character, bringing a contrast of materials and colours from the heel to the toe.
