Warby Parker Burke Eyeglasses

Its obvious we here at What is a Gentleman are fans of the WP. That's why we are throwing these specs into the Goods mix. These Burkes from Warby Parker are personal favorites of mine (Stephen), and my daily wearers. I get compliments on them all of the time from random people, but usually my baristas. These are great for wider and rounder faces because while the lenses are slightly larger, the clear frame at the bottom makes the eyelglasses less visually heavy allowing people to see more of your face, without sacrificing lens size.

Tis the season of office holiday parties and 200 of your friends' Christmas/ nondenominational holiday parties. Some will inevitably be ugly sweater themed, but some will be more on the elegant side of the spectrum. For those, we suggest a slim trouser with a bit of character. These skinny black cotton dress pants from Topman offer a fun twist to a classic black pant, perfect for the holiday season, as the cotton flecks are reminiscent of the snowfall we all look forward to during the season. These are a bit of a tighter cut, so if you are a power bottom, we'd suggest a different style.

The only thing we will warn you about is the strap.

Apparently Club Monaco got the same memo, and are having a sale on all of their jackets, including this awesome Wool Cashmere topcoat. The wool cashmere blend gives it a high-quality soft feel that is also durable enough for a sturdy topcoat. Complete with two flap pockets on the outside, lined interior pockets, and a welt breast pocket this jacket is designed like the classics with a more modern fit. While this topcoat is definitely an invest that is well worth it's cost, it won't go out of fashion any time soon (as it hasn't yet since the 1920s). Wear it over your suit, blazer and slacks, jeans and button-down, or a sweatshirt, it goes with it all.

Indochino Merino Wool Flannel Blazer

via indochino.com

Winter is coming, and quickly. We seemed to have skipped over most Fall throughout the northern state, as daily highs are only reaching the mid 50s, and nightly temps are plunging even in the southern states. This means its time for some warmer sport coats. A great new guy on the scene is this merino wool flannel blazer from Indochino. The fabric is super soft, warm, and has a great roll on the collar. With a tread-count in the Super 100's the wool should stay together and last quite a while, meaning this can be inserted into your weekly wearers. And why wouldn't want to include this, it has a uniqueness your coworkers are likely not to have in their closets, setting you a part. The maroon and blue color combo allows it to go well with khakis, gray slacks, and blue jeans, so feel free to break this out for work and play.

Flint and Tinder Moleskin Shirt Jacket

via Huckberry.com

Instead of beating you over the head with flannel-based shirt options for all of Fall, we decided to mix it up a bit. Introducing the Moleskin Shirt Jacket from Flint and Tinder. This shirt jacket, or what we'll affectionately  call a shacket, is a heavy-duty cotton shirt that protects you from the elements while working out in the yard, going hiking, sitting by the campfire, or venturing into a new part of your city throughout Autumn. This shacket is 100% sourced and made in the good ol' US of A which is always worth a right swipe (get it? flint and TINDER) for us. This garment is really meant to be layered, so the sizes are a little big if you are used to a more slim fit, so take that into account when ordering. For the shorter gents out there, these sleeves will likely require a "cuff and go" type of action as they are a tad long. We suggest layering this over a lightly-colored t-shirt, and either tan chinos, or some reliable denim, and boots of your choice.

Sonos Play:1 Wifi Speaker

Music is a powerful tool. It can add tension to your scary movie scenes, energy to your workouts, and peacefulness to your morning routine. The ambiance amplifier that is a good sound track is an awesome mood adjuster or augmenter that necessitates a true-sounding speaker to give you the full effect. The Play:1 wifi speaker from Sonos, while it is the smallest format Sonos provides, is exactly that. This little guy emits some serious sound. Note that while this isn't a bluetooth speaker you can take everywhere, you can put this anywhere around your house, without having to worry about running upstairs and disconnecting, ruining the mood for everyone not in your area of your house. It is humid resistant but not water proof, so you can put it in your bathroom but keep it out of the rain. It runs off of the Sonos app that integrates with all the major music streaming apps, and has localized controls on the speaker itself for when the master of the music is out of the room and you need to adjust the levels. The best part is its ability to build off other Sonos products, allowing you to listen to the same music throughout the house or turn on different tunes in each rooms, giving you full audio control over your space.
