Chances are, this festive season you’ll be buying presents for at least one chap with an intimidatingly large beard, and a penchant for check shirts (or plaid shirts, if you really insist).
Yes they’re rugged, yes they’re outdoorsey, but deep down these men are hipsters and, as such, they’ll reject the notion of being a Lumbersexual. Why wouldn’t they? It’s a really, really stupid word, after all.
But we’re not here to debate the merits of a catch-all term for these musky, bearded giants-among-men. Oh no. We’re here to inspire you to buy them the right thing for Christmas.
Here’s the ultimate Lumbersexual Christmas gift guide. And yes, there will be check shirts. Lots of them:
1) Finisterre Kepler Shirt
This classic looking check number from British company Finisterre should be a staple of any lumbersexuals wardrobe.
The combination of 80% cotton and 20% Merino wool, the Kepler is both comfortable and hard wearing, so whether you’re out chopping wood, or enjoying an open fire in a hip pub, you’ll be equally at home in this shirt.
