So far we’ve dished out some great gift ideas for The Man Who Means Business and The Youthful Trendsetter. Next on our list of guys is The Socializer: the social behemoth and man about town. Take a look at what type of things you can get him this Christmas:

Shirts from Franco Negretti and Gregory Allen
I think we’ve all seen it before at least once. The pre-packaged Calvin Klein shirt gift from Winners that never ends up your size and boxy enough to rival Lego. But we have a plan for you.
1) Find out which one of his shirts you (or he) likes the best.
2) When he’s not wearing it, sneak into his closet and find the size of it.*
3) Buy that size shirt of either Franco Negretti($145+) or Gregory Allen ($275).
The shirts are playful, the patterns occasionally daring, the colours bold, and the fit is modern cut. If he’s a social demon, he’ll love it.

Gregory Allen Bow Ties
Look at this bow tie. There’s leather! Gregory Allen made waves last year when we introduced these plaid bad boys (plaidboys?), and they make for a perfect gift in the stocking or in a separate box for $100. An instant attention getter. Read more here.

Will Leather Goods
More leather! This time it’s from Will Leather Goods, and leather is their specialty. A man about town needs to only bring a few wallet essentials before heading out: cash and cards. Slim it down with one of these fresh wallets for $65-$80. See more about the independent company and a great video that details how their leather is processed here.

Eyewear by Curtler & Gross
Available at Spectacle
Indoor or Fashion tints are huge at the moment. Every day another actor gets photographed looking like they stepped out of GQ circa 1973 with a kick ass light blue or rose tint on their lenses. We are starting to see more and more of our clients do the same as well. The lenses on this frame are light enough to be worn inside and out while still maintaining 100% UV A and UV B protection.

Fujifilm Finepix 3D W3
Available at The Source and other major electronics retailers
New from the brilliant minds of Fujifilm is the W3 10-megapixel camera ($499). Slim enough to carry around in your inside pocket and pants, and it has wow-factor written all over it. But there’s something special about this one: It’s 3D. We’ll refer to the notes to explain this one:
Relive your favourite photo memories as if you were there again for the first time. The eye-popping 3D technology you have enjoyed in 3D movies and 3D video games is now right in the palm of your hands with the Fujifilm Finepix 3D W3 Camera. Forget the goofy-looking 3D glasses-the twin Fujinon 3x optical zoom lenses imitate how our eyes view things, by shooting the same photo from varying angles. This process creates the impression of perspective and depth, resulting in a 3D image. When you’re ready to view your photos, simply press play and view your pictures in real 3D on the camera’s 3.5″ LCD screen, or view your photos on your big screen 3DTV. Fujifilm’s FinePix 3D camera also records stunning 3D HD movies in quality stereo sound; giving you a 3D movie theater experience right in your own living room.
