I’m continuing with my look at great gift ideas for Valentine’s Day with a focus on some great Ted Baker accessories from Mainline Menswear.
Mainline, which has been featured on the blog before, is a great port of call for designer menswear and accessories including ranges from Ralph Lauren, Paul Smith, Barbour and Hugo Boss. Ted Baker accessories are impeccably stylish and are also beautifully presented, which makes them a great gift idea. They work particularly well if you are buying a gift for a gent for the first time – you may not know their taste in shirts or tops, but you can’t really go wrong with a wallet, or a washbag or a belt.
I was sent a beautiful two piece wallet set from Ted Baker. Containing a black leather wallet and a separate card holder, the set comes beautifully gift boxed in an embossed box which is nice enough to not need any additional wrapping. The wallet and card holder is soft leather, with the wallet having space for six cards, as well as a section for notes. The additional card holder has a further three card sections on the front, another on the back, and will actually fit snuggly into the wallet.
The wallet and card are real classic pieces that would work for any discerning gentlemen, regardless of taste. The classic black colour works well with smart clothing, a briefcase, or jeans and a polo top, with the size of the wallet making it suitable if your other half just likes to carry it in a pocket. It is the sort of leather that will only look better as it ages, a timeless piece that should last for years.
