2011 Holiday Wish List

This year, the OTC Holiday Wish List has a great mix of interesting items, price points and functionality.  Some of these brands may be familiar to you, while others may be something new.  And that’s what we try and do at OTC – remind our readers of why certain brands are indeed great, and introduce new or smaller companies who deserve some increased attention.

In the coming weeks, you will be learning more about a few of the outstanding brands listed below, such as Lotuff Leather.  We are in fact field testing a leather lock briefcase right now; safe to say they are not getting it back after the review!  Recently, we had the chance to speak with the superlative Ira Neimark, former CEO of Bergdorff Goodman, and the man who’s vision created one of the world’s legendary stores.  His new book, The Rise of Fashion and Lessons Learned at Bergdorf Goodman, should be required reading for anyone seeking to understand what it truly means to be an exceptional retailer or influencer of fashion.  Be on the lookout for our review.

Explore, enjoy and Happy Holidays!

    1. Wow! I love this collection of items – really awesome… and the book looks fascinating.
      Such a stylish look for any gentleman…
      Keep up the excellent work!

    2. Boston Gent – it really is a great hat and the company behind it, a brother and sister operation, is very socially focused. We are happy to have found them.

    3. There’s no time for cut-and-dried monotony. There is certainly time for work. And time for love. That leaves not one other time!
      For a number of people, the weekly paycheck is ‘take-home pay’ because house is the sole place they can manage to go with it.
