Don't we all want our dudes to be dapper? I'm not talking about looking and acting like James Bond 24/7 (because that would mean us ladies would have to walk around looking like a pin-up worthy Bond girl 24/7...and that's just not gonna happen, my friends). What I am talking about is that certain 'je ne sais quois' that those modern-day dapper dudes like Clooney, Gosling, and Depp posses. It's that "I might have just rolled out of bed, but I look pretty darn good....and I totally know it."

Dude No. 1 Beard Oil by MCMC Fragrances - Fresh, spicy, and woody, this 100% natural fragrance is the new classic manly scent that will make you want to get close.  Super close.

Tokyo Bay Speed Watch - A great casual men's watch that evokes the feeling of a vintage motorbike. The rugged leather and canvas strap, aged metal patina of the dial and casing would be the perfect watch with that favorite leather jacket. 

The Scifen Company Pieces T-Shirt* - This revamped classic tee with a traditional silhouette evokes a clean cut and neat image without being too refined. It's a little bit bit Paris meets LA, no?

Berkley Illustration Cheetah Portrait Print  & Berkley Illustration Great White Shark - Two gentlemanly subjects from the animal kingdom are featured in these prints - a perfect conversation starter for endless hours in the man cave. The stories behind the prints? After cataract surgery ten years ago, this cheetah realized that an eyepatch can be a real conversation starter with the ladies. His eye has long since healed but his social calendar remains quite full.  Now for the shark...once a popular jazz pianist, this shark has most recently become a song and dance showman. His voice has been described as "a cross between Louis Armstrong and Kenny Rogers". Unfortunately his fierce temper has limited his gigs to biker bars and convict picnics. Feel free to talk amongst yourselves.

Bumble and bumble Sumotech* - No one likes a guy that takes longer to get ready than, say. J.Lo or Kim Kardashian. A little muss with not a whole lot of fuss is the recipe for a dapper dude's hair care regimen. The perfect ingredient? This mid-weight wax/paste/cream goop.

Bodum Fyrkat Portable Charcoal Grill - Grilling is a right of passage from boyhood to manhood. For gents that are confined to small apartments or seasonal grilling, this compact design uses charcoal for true barbecue flavor. Yum.

Kenton Sorenson Leather Dopp Kit - This dopp kit is hand made in Wisconsin using natural leather that will develop an amazing deep golden brown color with regular use. Isn't it so rustic, simple, and just gorgeous?

Suede and Leather Shoe by Pointer* - A casual, classic shoe from Pointer that will look dashing when your dude is pounding the pavement. These two-toned shoes are sure to make you do a head to toe assessment...and approve of what you see. 

Button Stud Belt by Makr - A champion of leather goods, this entire shop’s good could easily fit into this gift guide. This belt is simple in design - one inch wide, seven button holes, brass finishes. Like the dopp kit, it will darken significantly with age. It's a keeper.

Washed Linen Tie by Apolis Inspired by a traditional World War II officer's tie, the textured linen fabric of this tie is anything but rigid. It'll add polish without pomp to your dude's look.

Vestal “Himalayas” Sunglasses* - If you're planning a trip to the Himalayas... you might want to get some more serious eye wear (snow blindness seems seriously horrifying). But for everyday wear, these sunnies are sure to keep your guy's peeper protected - in style - from the damaging rays of the sun. probably don't want these sunglasses.

The Perfect Gent by Sam Tickner - A quick pictorial guide of all the essentials needed to make a perfect gentleman. Bow tie and cigar not included. Bummer.
