STUDY Presents: Modern Woodsman

giftguidewoodsman_alphafinal

We've got less than two weeks until the big stress-inducing holiday known as Christmas hits us all in the face, but fear not loyal readers! STUDY is here with gift guides to help you figure out what exactly you should be buying for the favorite man in your life. We figured archetypes were the best way to go, but forget about all this "Hero/Warrior" talk. First up? The Modern Woodsman.

Obviously our guy's a lover, not a fighter - and here's what you should buy him:

(Clockwise from top left)
1. Filson Mackinaw Wool Western Vest - $125
2. Bear Portrait Print by Todd Baxter - $325
3. Eames Hang-It-All - $152
4. Vintage Abercrombie and Fitch Lunchbox and Thermos Case - $575
5. Walden by Henry David Thoreau - $7.50
6. Blanchetta axe - $350
7. Heath Bowls - $70 to $110

And now the deets:

1. Filson Mackinaw Wool Western Vest - $125
Leave it to a 150+ year-old  company to make the perfect utility vest that's also stylish.

2. Bear Portrait Print by Todd Baxter - $325
Todd Baxter is by far STUDY's favorite Chicago-based photographer. We first saw Bear Portrait at Nightwood and we've come to realize that everything Baxter does is magic.

3. Eames Hang-It-All - $152
A classic design is re-imagined with a sober wood finish. Let's class this log cabin up!

4. Vintage Abercrombie and Fitch Lunchbox and Thermos Case - $575
This is about the only time in the history of the universe that you'll find us endorsing anything from Abercrombie & Fitch. Of course, this is vintage and fantastic...

5. Walden by Henry David Thoreau - $7.50
Time to get your contemplative Woodsman on. A must-read as always. 

6. Blanchetta axe - $350
Make love, not war... and use this axe for decorative purposes only.

7. Heath Bowls - $70 to $110
This California-based company and their earthy aesthetic make any campsite a little more luxe.

Well, that's that. But stay tuned for a few more gift guides coming your way in the days leading up to Christmas. And lest we forget... we had a contest:
