Christmas Gift Guide: Accessories
Perfect for winter adventures, socially distanced catch-ups and as gifts to friends and loved ones across the festive period, our selection of Always in Colour accessories are designed to adhere to even the most demanding of schedules. Well suited as gifts for loved ones or for treating yourself to as you plan for the upcoming year, we’ve pieced together a handful of our favourite everyday and outdoor orientated accessories to set you on your way as we transition through the coming months.
Why not give the gift of all season staples thanks to our premium selection of Always in Colour socks. Creative premium-grade socks such as those from Japanese sock makers Rostersox and RoToTo include playful designs such as the novelty Rostersox Beer Socks and the heritage referencing Low Gauge Slub Socks, Double Face Crew Socks and the 3 pack of Organic Ribbed Crew Socks, whilst multicoloured striped designs such as ‘good for the soul’ Jollies’ Royal, Dark Loop and Joker Socks are designed to bring a pop of contemporary character and colour to any daily ensemble. For fans of Carhartt, then the returning Chase and Carhartt Socks are our top pick, with Nike Sportswear’s pack of three Everyday Essential Crew Socks ideal for both leisure and loungewear. Crafted from upcycled fabrics and sustainably made in the USA, vintage inspired triple tone socks such as the Mollusk Twist Crew Socks capture the appeal of winter warmers through their highly insulative woven design and make for the ideal stocking filler gift.
With your feet addressed, then why not treat your hands and head to something insulative too. Opt for protective profiles such as Copenhagen-based Norse Projects’ Quick Dry Bucket Hat, their classic Norse Beanie or their knitted in Scotland Brushed Lambswool Beanie. For all season wear, classic six and five panel Patagonia caps such as the cotton corduroy Line Logo Ridge Patch and Fitz Roy Rambler are joined by similarly styled Satta caps such as the mid-wale Satta Cord Cap and the season friendly Satta Fleece Cap, whilst checkered colourings for NYC-based Battenwear’s Field Cap combines seasonal aesthetic with an appreciation for traditional workwear styling. For admirers of contemporary design and Japanese streetwear utilitarianism, the water repellent CMF Outdoor Garment All Time Cap is styled with both function and fashionable appeal in mind. For the hands, Patagonia’s Synchilla Gloves are crafted from 100% recycled polyester with touch screen panels on the thumbs and index fingers for maximised comfort and functionality.
With travel restrictions easing, you might find yourself in need of new accessories to help keep all your must-have tech and essential travel kit neatly stored whilst on the move. Great too for helping inspire future ventures, our selection of Always in Colour backpacks, bags and travel accessories offer ample storage function regardless of necessitated setting. For smaller items, try size-appropriate accessories such as the Battenwear V2 Travel Pouch, the footwear specific Nike Shoebox Bag or everyday tote bags such as the Battenwear Packable Tote, Patagonia Ultralight Black Hole Tote or our own Always in Colour Tote. For overnight or all-day excursions, Patagonia backpacks such as the 28L Arbor Lid Pack and 100% post consumer recycled Black Hole Backpack are designed to hold all your valuable essentials with ease, with the larger Little Feller Bag from Kavu styled with the brand’s outdoor orientated narrative interwoven into its mountaineering inspired design. Other explorative packs include packable Klättermusen bags such as the Urur 23L Bag and the PU-coated Glitner 60L Duffelbag - all of which are designed to make light work of any further afield venture across the new year.
