Toad&Co. – Environmentally Friendly and Good Looking.

Patagonia R1 Techface Hoody – Your new favorite fleece
Patagonia strikes gold again with the R1 Techface hoody. We have spent the last year in this fleece and love it. If your man is anything like us, he will love it too! MSRP $169 Full review below.
Burton Midweight Merino Button-Up Shirt
We met with Woolmark at the Winter Outdoor Retailer show and went over some new tech with Australian wool. One of their featured pieces was this button-up from Burton. Even though it is a base layer, I found myself wearing it out on the town. Looks good enough for a casual Holiday party, and performs great on the mountain too! MSRP $129
DUER Jeans – Jeans that stretch!
If your man is athletic, then chances are he has muscular legs. Chances are also pretty good that he does not want to wear some kind of restrictive pants. The solution? DUER pants. They are as comfortable as sweatpants but look like jeans. Because they are jeans! Several styles to choose from, but these were our favorites. DUER Relaxed Fit MSRP $129

DUER Fireside Jeans
These are going to be your new winter jeans. DUER wove a light fleece material into the jeans, creating a comfortable and warm jean. And yes, it still stretches like crazy! See the squats below! MSRP $159
Royal Robbins Thermotech Ren Plaid Shirt and Active Traveler Stretch Pant
Royal Robbins makes some of the best travel clothing we have ever seen. The Thermotech Ren shirt looks great, fits well and is wrinkle proof. This is key for many reasons: 1) traveling 2) laziness 3) not looking frumpy. I wore the heck out of the Thermotech shirt for 2 weeks straight – without washing it. And keeping it balled up in a duffle bag when not using it. The Active Traveler pant is very comfortable and stretches well. The pockets are well thought out and materials are bluesign approved. Thermotech Ren Plaid Shirt $85 Active Traveler Pant $85
TREW NuYarn Merino Pocket T-Shirt
The TREW NuYarn series of shirts are the best shirts out there. I live in them day in and day out. The Pocket T is not only stylish, but it is also versatile and comfortable. The fit is spot on and the front pocket comes in handy (perfect for Apple TV remote). They sent over a few to test, and I wound up replacing all my shirts with these. They are that good! MSRP $69
