Now that the holidays are officially upon us, we here at Shoppist are in full gifting mode. Each day this month, we’ll unveil our 25 top gifts to buy in Philly this season. (Trust us: We’ve shopped everywhere to bring you the best of the best.)
How to fake a supremely thought-out, custom-designed gift a mere three days before Christmas? Head to Commonwealth Proper’s newish studio at 19th and Chestnut (you’ll want to call first)—or visit them online—and spring for one of the company’s off-the-rack pieces. While the majority of the menswear company’s offerings is bespoke, you can find a few ready-to-wear gems, like this cotton twill blazer, made right here in Philly. The lightweight, unstructured jacket is polished but casual; he’ll want to pair it with jeans. And when he asks if it was made-to-measure, just smile and don’t reveal a thing. (Oh, and a tip: CP’s ready-to-wear line runs a bit smaller than their custom-made pieces, so opt for one size larger than normal.)
The Details: Cotton ready-to-wear blazer, $385 at Commonwealth Proper, Rittenhouse.
Give To: Your boyfriend.
