This holiday, find the perfect gift for the guys on your list at Porterhouse Clothing & Supply. From stocking stuffers to gifts that may last a lifetime, we've got you covered.
$25 and Under
Stocking stuffers, white elephant gifts, and presents for people you feel obligated to buy for. These gifts punch above their weight.
Daneson Flavored Toothpicks
Daneson’s flavored toothpicks are an excellent stocking stuffer. 12 toothpicks come in a vial with a cork topper. Premium packaging and a premium product ensure whoever you're buying for will feel like a million bucks after every meal. Flavors include single-malt scotch, bourbon, mint, and cinnamint.
Darn Tough Socks
Every year, grocery store aisles are lined with cheap, novelty seasonal socks for people to give as gifts. I suspect most of these make it one Christmas before ending up in the garbage or lost. Rise above the sock cliche this year with Darn Tough socks. Made with merino wool, sewn in Vermont since 1978, and backed by a lifetime warranty.
For the old-fashioned note-taker or budding designer in your life. Field Notes are inspired by the promotional memo books distributed to American farmers over the last hundred years by seed, tractor, and other agricultural companies. Today, Field Notes are both functional and, for the design-conscious, collectible. In addition to their classic memo books, you can find day planners, steno pads, and large-format notebooks in our shop. There’s even a waterproof edition.
$25 - $60
Dehen Watch Caps
Perhaps the most iconic garment in a long line of civilian-wear inspired by the armed forces. Watch caps will probably always be in style here in the northwest.
Our favorite iteration here is a 100% wool cap from Dehen 1920 up in Portland. We also carry a 100% wool option from Seattle-based Filson, and for those looking for a cotton cap instead of wool this holiday, we've got a selection from Taylor Stitch as well. All of them are certifiably cozy.
For the modern man, a tie is a statement piece he wears because he loves it, not because he has to. If you know a guy who sports a fashionable bow tie or regular necktie from time to time, feed his collection with something from Pocket Square Clothing. The assortment in our case include cotton, wool, and linen options in both straight black and fun patterns.
For the clean-cut guy in your life. Safety razors are an eco-friendly and, over the long term, more affordable alternative to disposable razors, so upgrade your man to a Rockwell safety razor. We’re happy to educate you on the various options available. Pairs well with shaving cream and aftershave for the full experience.
Fulton & Roark Fragrances
Fulton & Roark, out of North Carolina, is pumping out absolute knock-out scents. More expensive than bargain-bin, locker-room scents, but way more affordable than designer fragrances. Story time from Porterhouse owner, Ethan:
This summer I was at a wedding wearing a little Fulton & Roark cologne. One of the groomsmen, a couple drinks in, came up to me in the bar line, threw an arm around my shoulder, and stuck his face in my neck before shouting "BRO WHY DO YOU SMELL SO GOOD!?". The audience wasn't the intended one, but it definitely made an impact.
Solid colognes are a huge improvement over spray colognes because you can apply it exactly where you want it and just as much as you want. Shop the full collection of scents here.
$60 - $150
Baby Yak Scarf
Baby yak might be a new material for you, but you'll love it. It's incredibly soft and is shed naturally by yak as they mature, leaving us with a scarf you can feel really good about. Seriously soft. From the folks at Taylor Stitch.
French Terry Loungewear
If COVID-19 has resulted in a permanent work-from-home situation for the guy in your life, they may as well get comfy. Some of us still need to dress like we’re headed to the office, but other guys are killing it in sweats all day. Feed the lifestyle this holiday with 100% French Terry loungewear from Pistol Lake. Hoodies and joggers that are super comfy and will wear in, not out, over time. Also perfect for getting to and from the gym!
If you happen to know a gentleman with a tri-fold velcro wallet, it is, in fact, your duty to gift them something to replace it this year. No need to announce themselves every time they open their wallet.
Gift them an upgrade from our selection of leather wallets from Fontenelle Supply Company. Based in Des Moines, Iowa, Fontenelle crafts their wallets from Hermann Oak, a tannery in St. Louis, Missouri. We carry their card, bifold, money clip, passport, and notebook wallets, the last of which pairs perfectly with a pack of Field Notes (see above).
A leather belt is about as easy a gift as it comes. Stylish, durable, and with plenty of holes, if you don’t get the exact right size, close enough will be fine. Our belts also come from Fontenelle, made from that same Hermann Oak leather. Size down for the guy looking to shed a little COVID weight.
$150 - $300
At this price point, you’ll find higher quality shirting with selvedge construction, unique patterns and details, and most definitely made in America.
We love curating made-in-USA shirting. It runs more expensive, but quality often does! Among these options you'll find brands new and old. One one hand are shops like Gitman Vintage that have been pumping out shirting since 1978, and on the other are relative newcomers trying to build back American-based textile production, like Freenote Cloth and Rogue Territory. Solid oxfords, prints and checks, corduroy and more.
At the $300 and up price point, these gifts might actually outlast the person you’re buying for.
Waxed Canvas Outerwear
Did you know that Eugene actually gets more rain each year than Seattle? They just get the reputation because they’re bigger. That weather makes waxed canvas an excellent choice for outerwear. Thick, canvas cotton with a thin layer of wax so the elements roll right off.
We’ve got a couple waxed canvas options for the outdoorsman on your list. Above you'll see a lined option from Freenote Cloth. For something a bit lighter, Rogue Territory's signature Ridgeline Supply Jacket is just the ticket.
Filson likes to talk about their 100% wool Mackinaw jackets as a rite of passage for young Pacific Northwesterners, and we’ve heard the same story from many of our customers. A Mackinaw jacket will brave any condition the PNW throws at it for many many years. This jacket will probably only get regifted if it outlasts its original owner.
Filson bags are still made up the road in Seattle, Washington. Canvas construction and leather straps. Most guys these days are working from laptops, and for a lot of guys this holiday, a Filson bag will be a nice upgrade for toting one around.
A pair of leather boots will always be in fashion, and a pair of properly-constructed boots can be repaired and re-soled over the years. Here at Porterhouse, we’re proud to be Eugene’s only retailer of locally-made Truman Boots. Be sure to drop in early while sizes last - we’re unlikely to restock on these before the holiday.
And of course, we've got gift cards available here at Porterhouse, good both in store and online, and available at any price point.
