I hope your lead in to December has been relaxing. This week at Alt Finery we got into the Xmas Spirit and Decorated our Windows. Bit of a Rustic Theme representing where we Live, Beautiful Daylesford Town, and Purple and White Decorations.... the colours of our Logo....creating a Very Alt Xmas.
This weeks Blog continues along the Xmas theme....Last weeks Blog was about the Ladiez....this week is about the Men....For the Husbands, Sons, Dads, Partners and Friends. Alt Finery has something for every special guy in your life.
I know, right? A total cliche". But I would say most Men and Boys would probably be rockin commando every day if it wasn"t for the the Wives, Mums and Partners keeping them in underwear. Really...think of it as a gift to yourself...chuck out the discoloured "Tighty Whities"with the waist band coming off ...and get your Man into some new Boxer Briefs from Alt. Packs of 3 Boxer Briefs only $24.00. Same with Socks...Get rid of the odd socks and holes, and buy some shiny new ones. Packs of 3 quality work socks for only $15.00. They are great stocking stuffers too.
Alt has an Amazing range of Hats for guys. For younger Crew we have Truckers Caps. For the Country Gent, we have Peaked Caps and for those looking to Kick it up a Notch, we Have Handmade Fedora Hats by Jennifer Dagley....made with beautiful feathers and badges and charged with Magic. Really exceptional pieces!
3. T- Shirts
We Love a good T-Shirt, and have looked far, in fact world wide to uncover some really cool T-Shirt Brands. Our Favourite is S-Ponder. They are a brand out of the UK, and have Ts with some of the Coolest Graphics around....a bit "Street"...a Bit Dark. We Love that! Perfect for any Hipster you are pulling your hair out to buy for.
For the Dapper Chap, We have a Fantastic range of Mens Shirts. We have Van Heusen Dress Shirts in Long and Short Sleeve in an really great array of Colours.
For The Country Gent, We have Flannelette Shirts By Bass. Bass is a US Outdoors label that makes really quality Outdoors Clothing. We are retailing it at really reduced prices too...some come in and check it out.
For the guys who like something a bit different..., a little bit Vintage...a little bit Rock n Roll, We have some Amazing Paisley Shirts.
.....and what do you need to go with your Amazing Shirt....A Tie....also great Secret Santa gift or Stocking Stuffer. we have ties from $15 for a Bow Tie, Skinny Tie or Paisley tie, then the Van Heusen Silk ties retail around $30.
For a more intimate gift, Jewellery is the way to go. We have beautiful cuff Links ( $9) and Sophisticated Watches ( $30) that wont break the bank.
For those who want to spend the least amount of time shopping or are choosing for someone that is really hard to buy for this is for you. They can also be purchased online and emailed, so a brilliant last minute gift idea, that you don't even have to leave the house for!
