Crane Brothers Christmas Gifts - Simon
Simon is the manager of the Wellington Crane Brothers store.
He is an ex-pat Brit, here in New Zealand, experiencing a southern hemisphere Christmas. He says "As I am from the UK and this being only my second Christmas in New Zealand, I am still getting used to the fact it will be sun and not snow on Christmas day. I'm used to putting on extra layers at this time of year, not sunscreen! I am keeping up the tradition of a Christmas turkey and the bit I enjoy most - turkey, stuffing and cranberry sandwiches for the days that follow!”
"As soon as these trousers arrived in store, I knew they were something special! A fine example of Italian tailoring; a slim, tapered leg with a soft waistband and available in 4 colours. My pick of the bunch would be the stone, a staple for any man's wardrobe. Dress them up with a navy blazer or down with a plain tee and a pair of sneakers. Dreamy."
"This premium linen shirt in a textured navy will complete any summer BBQ outfit. Don your shorts, roll up the sleeves and make sure you don't burn your sausages! Grab one while you can, they are already proving to be a bit hit."
Bresciani Socks - Linen / Jeans
"Some people joke about buying a man socks for Christmas but, these socks from Bresciani are no joke! Made from 100% linen so perfect for summer. Pair them with your chinos or work suit, satisfaction guaranteed."
