GarconJon wants... Plaid Presents #wishlistWednesday

The closer we get to Christmas, the more I've been looking at gifts online. The more I look at gifts online, the more I find things that I'd quite like for myself. It's a viscous cycle, you see and one that increases the length of my 'Bookmarks' list exponentially. To offload a few, here's some I've had my eye on this week.

1. Plaid Beanie: Generally I find it's actually quite difficult to find beanies that fit well but Black Buffalo tends to work a treat for my head. Love the subtle check on this from the Hypebeast store.

2. Sleek Stationary: Just adding the term 'space' to a product makes the cool-factor raise ten fold. Given that next year Virgin Galactic will take it's first spaceline trip it seems apt to order a gold Bullet Space Pen before the end of the year.

3. Shinola Watch: I've had my eye on a Shinola watch for a long time now. I love their story and pioneering Detroit location. This Runwell contrast chrono in gold is spectacular both in person and on screen - top of the wishlist.

4. Check Overcoat: After a day of meetings in Soho, I went on the hunt for a replacement for my old vintage coat that's seen better days. I headed into Tommy Hilfiger on Regent Street, a store I don't check regularly but was happy to see rails filled with delectable goods. This Rochester moon check coat is perfect and if I'm feeling bold would go well with their plaid chinos.

5. Winter Brogues: On the same trip I tried on Tommy's Boston dress shoe and loved the comfortable-and-practical-yet-formal mix. Great grip below, great design above.

6. Tartan Backpack: I may not have the long, slender limbs for Slimane's Saint Laurent trousers but his leather-trimmed tartan backpack would be a lovely addition to my collection. It's a handy size for light travel but deceptively holds more than you'd think.

For a new winter wardrobe, there's also only a few days days left to enter the Tommy Pinterest competition. Create a Pinterest board around the perfect Holiday look using items from and the winner will be given a £600 gift voucher to buy their favorite NYE outfit online.
