"How did you know?" For this season, we are going for nothing less than a "WOW" factor. From sneakers and socks to cologne, tech and all things health, optimize this holiday season as the time to usher your man into his best and brightest self. If you've scored yourself a fellow sneaker fiend, look no further for certifiable luxe-brands like Axel Arigato have underlined some of this season's hottest designs engineered to elevate his vibe from ordinary to icon. While for cologne, we opt for the perfect scent to complete the suiting ensemble. Not too daunting but not too light; not too woody, but not too floral. We've gathered signature scents sure to evoke self-possession and exude conviction. Though, if your special someone isn't a fashion fan or a scent fanatic but rather dabbles in the tech arena, Apple and other industry heavyweights prompt the perfect additions to his electronic compilations. Even in tricky situations where he doesn't fit in any of those categories - because let's face it, men can be sometimes be a bit of an enigma - we've complied some fitness essentials for those who prefer to moonlight in the health and wellness space.
