holiday shopping guide : part two : fashionable fella

Now that you have shopped for the fashionista in your life, here's a gift guide for those fashionable fellas you love.

Perhaps my favourite menswear label at the moment - I'd love to cover my surfer-boy hubby head to toe in their stuff. The name is a reference to our ocean, which makes up two-thirds of our planet, and a reminder to look after this life-giving resource. Most of the line is made of organic cotton, and the jackets are waterproofed with natural beeswax - genius. Order now for free international shipping on orders over 100 Euros.

I was lucky enough to visit the headquarters in San Sebastian last year.

Arthur & Henry
The perfect shirt - organic, fair trade cotton, produced ethically, and a slim-fit always looks great. I also love the detailing with the vintage fabric inside the cuff.

Cock & Bull Menswear
Another label out of the UK, and I'm totally digging these handwoven tweed waistcoats and flat caps made from natural wool with organic silk and hemp linings. They also produce GOTS certified organic cotton underwear.

Fare Well Co.
I love the graphic on this shirt, and I really love that these organic cotton tees are made right here in Sydney in a carbon neutral and sweatshop free factory. That's just how I prefer my garment factories! Even better, proceeds from Fare Well sales go to Room to Read, helping educate children and eradicate poverty, and the Save the Tasmanian Devil appeal.

Ekocyle by Hallensteins
A collaboration with, these suits contain 23 recycled plastic bottles in the fabric. At only $170 AUD, this suit is an incredible bargain. If you order by 19 December, you'll receive your order by Christmas. Available in slim, skinny and drop-crotch trousers, you're sure to find one to suit your fella's personal style.

Now that all denim by Nudie is 100% organic cotton, your man doesn't have to sacrifice style for sustainability. If he has some old Nudies that could use a little TLC, they also offer a free repair service.

This vegan shoe line produces shoes from 100% PVC-free synthethic materials in ethical factories in Portugal. (There is also a women's line.)

Fantastic bags made from vintage Swiss army blankets that were manufactured but never used. The blankets are anywhere from 40-100 years old. Fantastic weekend getaway bag!

Proof has an incredible range of sunnies made from bamboo, plant-based biodegradable plastics, or recycled skate decks, like the ones below.
