Initial Ball Cap, Navy Patch
Hats + Belts
Shopping for guys is easy when you know what to look for. Many men value gifts that are equal parts attractive and practical. When you want to reach a guy’s heart, give him something he can use day after day as part of his routine – he’ll love how useful it is. For many men, clothing items like watches, hats, ties, cufflinks and belts are a win-win situation. The specific piece they absolutely love depends a little bit on what you know about their lifestyle. Is your favorite guy a businessman? An inspiring teacher and father? A traveler? At Mark and Graham, we have gift ideas for every personality and profession. Here’s why many guys love men’s hats and belts so much.
First, hats are comfy. They let guys just be themselves, which is a good thing. It doesn’t matter if the man in your life is heading to the store or playing basketball with friends; his cap goes along for the ride. And when it’s hot out, a hat keeps the sun out of his eyes. That’s why caps and the beach go together so well. For the guy who loves classic cars or who’s always on the go, a pair of leather driving gloves helps him stay ready for anything.
Hats are very chic and hip in modern fashion. For that stylish look, pair a cap with a black leather jacket and a pair of slim jeans. To go a little more country instead, wear a favorite long-sleeve shirt – usually in a deep color – with cargo pants and a contrasting hat. And then there’s the big city mover-and-shaker. A trench coat and dark work pants say he gets things done, while a navy or tan baseball cap with his initials gives his outfit a softer touch on a comfortable, casual day off. And if a man accidentally wakes up late for work or isn’t feeling like styling his hair for the day, his trusted cap makes it easy to put on a polished appearance before heading out. To the world, he’s the height of fashion and good looks. Plus, wearing a hat that’s a present from his kids put a smile on a man’s face and fills his heart with a positive outlook on the day. After all, receiving something with your personal monogram from people you care about tells you how much they love you and appreciate everything you do. There’s no greater gift than that.
Now that you know the 101 on hats, you might also be wondering about all the benefits of belts. Just like hats, for most guys an attractive leather belt is an essential part of their outfit, and they never leave home without it. A leather belt goes with any kind of situation or mood they find themselves in. It doesn’t matter if your favorite guy is heading to work in a formal suit, attending a black tie affair or just tossing on some jeans to go fishing. A leather belt has a touch of elegance and power that fills guys with confidence. With a monogram, the feeling that the world is at their fingertips is even stronger. Everyone loves items that have truly personal touches, so this is a gift that they treasure.
Some outfits look great with belts made of different materials. But leather is always a mainstay. Why? For one thing, high-quality leather lasts pretty much forever. So with two pieces – a black leather belt and a natural-toned one – a man has all his bases covered when it comes to matching with shoes and other accessories.
