We've been away for sometime but we're reappearing with Holiday top-picks + buy-its!

Since Fall, MSR was receiving heaps of remarkable holiday goodies to review--ranging from grooming to accessories. Knowing the smart + clued-in men (and some ladies) you are I tapered down the top 4 gift-giving gifts.


A sexy laceup always set the wardrobe tone.

PRADA unleashed a rich goatskin leather shoe with a prominent cap toe stitching. Easy adaptable for jean-wearing or suit-lacing guys, the shoes' seamless versatility sells itself. A leather chocolate hue lining, cushion-padded insole, rubber sole only highlights why Italians always win where shoes are concerned!

GUCCI APP for iPhone

My overt fascination for "apps" would almost require me to have an iPhone right? Well, on contrary, I just can't wiggle free from Palm Treo's. On an appointment (In October) at Gucci's traveling sneaker pop-up shop in NYC I met GUCCI APP face-to-face. Boy was it a long interaction...

In short, GUCCI APP is a mobile intersection of fashion, music and the Gucci lifestyle for iPhone and iPod touch. The app synthesizes the worlds of fashion, technology and music offering access to exclusive Gucci products, unique playlists, videos, fashion shows, news, events, latest collections, store listings and the ability to mix your own music.

GUCCI APP is now available on APP store at Apple.com.


For all the Guitar Hero, Band Hero, and interactive gaming diehards I welcome you the next best thing: Electro ROCK GUITAR Tee! My favorite quirky web haunt (thanks to a particular NY TIMES Magazine staffer) ThinkGeek.com is the brainchild behind the attention-getting fashion invention.

According to ThinkGeek.com "The Electronic Guitar Shirt is not a toy that plays pre-canned musical riffs, it is a real musical instrument that allows you to play your favorite songs and sound great doing it. All major chords are recorded from a real electric guitar, and the included magnetic pick allows you to strum just like you would a real guitar."

Marc by Marc Jacobs Motorcycle Jacket

My two girls over at Gilt Groupe.com sent a whisper (which went viral to the masses afterward-lol) about the Astral Blue wool jacket you see shimmering below! The jacket softly echoes: "Cool Guy". And, Swaggeriffic too! The long sleeve wool side-zip motorcycle jacket, notch lapel with snap closures, front zip+ snap pockets with front non-functional pockets is loads of detailing a Gent can appreciate!
