With the colder weather now settled in for the next few months, we often now find ourselves looking for ways to keep warm. And as far as we’re concerned, the best way to keep the cold at bay this fall and winter is to warm ourselves both inside and out by having a good, stiff drink by a roaring fire. It was with this relaxing activity in mind that we put together this month’s guide to the best gear on Huckberry.
As the online purveyors of the world’s coolest gear, Huckberry unsurprisingly has everything you need to enjoy a quiet evening of cocktails and contemplation by the fireplace. From glasses to hold your whiskey (or whisky) and comfy stylish clothes to wear to relaxation-inducing accoutrements and even the chair you’ll sit on, Huckberry has everything you need to enjoy some fireside cocktails. So break out the kindling and your finest bottle of hooch and have a look at the best gear on Huckberry this month.
Paddywax Form Candle
When setting up your fireside sanctuary, you’ll want to aim for the most calming and warm setting possible, and a good candle will go a long way toward helping you achieve that goal. Paddywax’s Form Candle is hand-poured from a premium soy wax blend and features notes of wild fig, vetiver, bergamot, cedar, and more. Best of all, those lovely scents emanate from a handmade ceramic vessel that’s styled with a heavy American West influence.
Whiskey Peaks Pacific Northwest Glasses
Good liquor requires a quality glass, and Whiskey Peaks makes some of our favorites. Made from 100% lead-free handblown glass, each rocks glass in this four-pack features a raised impression of a different mountain from the Pacific Northwest in its base, with Mount Rainier,
Mount Hood, Mount Shasta, and Mount Olympus each adding some nice visual interest while you drink.
Quoddy Fireside Camp Slipper
One body part that can be especially difficult to keep warm when the mercury dips is our feet. But that shouldn’t be an issue with these Maine-made slippers from Quoddy. With “Fireside” right in the name, these mocs are obviously meant for cozy nights. Their handsewn twinface sheepskin with cozy wool fleece interior and full-grain leather exterior ensure that your toes will stay nice and toasty all night.
Billy Reid Denim Shirt
As the maker of James Bond’s favorite pea coat, Alabama-based designer Billy Reid certainly knows a thing or two about men’s style. One of the brand’s best offerings is this denim shirt that’s unbelievably soft and comfy while still maintaining an elevated stylish look. Crafted from ultra-soft imported Italian denim and featuring antique brass snaps at the chest pockets and placket, this killer shirt’s striking gray colorway is available exclusively at Huckberry.
Moore & Giles Match Striker
To get your fire going… and your candle… and your preferred smoke, if you plan in indulging, you’re going to need some matches. And while a matchbox kept on your mantle will get the job done just fine, we prefer to create a more luxurious ritual with a quality match holder and striker. This elegant striker from Moore & Giles is made from polished brass and rich Baldwin Oak leather, both of which will develop a lovely patina as the piece ages.
Wills Cashmere Shawl Collar Cardigan
There is quite literally no garment in your closet that better lends itself to fireside relaxation than a shawl collar cardigan. A menswear staple that’s graced the shoulders of everyone from Steve McQueen to Don Draper, a shawl collar cardigan is your best friend around the house in wintertime. And there’s no cardigan out there that’s higher on our list than this one from the sweater experts at Wills, as it combines a casual heathered look with an oh-so-soft blend of wool and Mongolian cashmere.
Traditional Timber Maple Burl Charcuterie Board
Man can not live on booze alone, so you’ll probably want some snacks to go with your tipple. But given that you’ll be wearing a cashmere cardigan and striking matches from a brass and leather match-striker, you’re going to need something a little more luxurious for your food than your regular dinner plate. Enter this charcuterie board from Traditional Timber. It has plenty of room for an assortment of meats, cheeses, and nuts, and it’s crafted from a drop-dead gorgeous hunk of burled maple.
Astrohaus The Freewrite Traveler Portable Typewriter
As you’re sitting next to your fire and enjoying your libation, your mind will almost certainly begin to wander. And in case it travels someplace interesting, you’ll be able to write down your thoughts with this portable electronic typewriter from Astrohaus. With no internet connectivity or other distractions — along with storage for over a million pages — the Freewrite Traveler doesn’t allow anything to get between you and your creativity.
You’ll basically never find us without a watch on our wrist, as a good timepiece is like a best friend who shares in all of your experiences. But for a relaxing situation such as our fireside cocktail session, we don’t necessarily want a watch with a lot of dazzle and complications. Instead, we’re opting for the utilitarian UC2 from favorite Italian microbrand UNIMATIC. This minimalist field watch tells you the time and nothing else, which is exactly what this moment calls for.
Moore & Giles Jefferson Street Armchair
Huckberry sells more than clothes, shoes, and gear — they also carry some pretty stellar furniture. Just take a look at this big comfy armchair from Moore & Giles. The Jefferson Street is just begging to be placed in front of a warm fire, with its classic tufted back and “Sonoma Toffee” Italian vegetable-tanned leather exterior looking like they just came from an English gentleman’s club. The solid maple-framed chair is hand-built in North Carolina, with each one made to order.
