Brian says: Hey Guys, we’re BACK! Hope everyone had a great holiday. If you are anything like me you wish you were still opening presents. Or you are still trying to figure out how Santa Clause makes it all the way around the world. Shout out to my inner child! Ok, but seriously, New Years eve is just around the corner. And its one more reason to celebrate yet...
ON THE 23RD DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Jenny says: Getting down to last minute shopping, I see. It’s definitely too late to get something monogrammed, special ordered or shipped from overseas if you want it under the tree by Christmas. But that doesn’t mean it’s too late to get a cool gift. Whether he’s a boozer or she’s a cruiser, having a pocket sized flask to fill on a whim is a must-have item. With...
ON THE 22ND DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Marcus says: The stockings may be hung by the chimney with care, but that doesn’t make a lick of a difference if they aren’t properly stuffed. Ikuyo Ejiri’s colorful silicone pouches are a fun, bold riff on classic purse and wallet shapes, but done with a kooky twist. Not only are they super fun, the tough silicone wipes clean with just a damp cloth. The only problem is...
ON THE 21ST DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Brian says: Hey fellas, Not ready for the heart-to-heart convo with your lady this Christmas season? The countdown is on: 4 days till Christmas. If you still need a last minute idea, here are two easy gifts that show your love for that special someone without actually having to say those three special words. Laugh Cry Repeat’s Gold Heart Tee and the Black Heart Tote. Give her one...
ON THE 20TH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Lilly says: We know that you have plenty of holiday parties to go to this season, and it’s usually tradition to wear something festive. I say avoid the ugly Christmas sweater all together and opt for a more stylish alternative. Enter the Christmas Tartan- by Gitman Brother’s(and sisters) Vintage. Buy them for all your relatives, and make it a family photo to be proud of! ...
ON THE 19TH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Marcus says: One of our favorite new things this season hasn’t been something you wear, but something you sip. Our new store, ACRE/SF, serves hot drip coffee made from Blue Bottle Coffee Co.’s Giant Steps beans, in honor of our location a hop, skip, and a jump from the Filbert Steps. A rich, hearty blend of Sumatran and Ugandan organic coffee, it’s a classic coffee...
ON THE 18TH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Lilly says: Your crazy friend is well…crazy! She’s fun at parties and lives by the expression, “you don’t need a dick to have balls”. This holiday season, give the belle with the balls a piece that is just as bold as she is. The Lets F Muscle Tee by UNIF is the piece that says it all, or doesn’t…stay with me here. Disguised as an unassuming screen ...
Just In // UNIF
LA-based brand UNIF is the newest collection to hit the holiday circuit here at Acrimony. Best known for their crude graphic tee’s, they’ve expanded into outerwear and bottoms that are sure to blow your mind. Peep some of the out takes from the latest photo shoot for our new favorite it-girl brand. UNIF Easy Rider Jacket ($151), UNIF Let’s F Muscle Shirt ($70), UNIF...
ON THE 17TH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Marcus says: What’s better than a present? How about a present inside a present? Marie Turnor’s trompe l’oeil bags have become a new favorite of our entire staff (and give how often we’ve had to restock them, you guys like them, too), so pass on the stocking altogether and stuffing the Dinner Clutch with some goodies instead. It’s chic, easy, and who doesn’t...
ON THE 16TH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Lilly says: Your girl is the best and you know it! She works all day in 6 inch platforms, always offers to pick up the check, manages to look beautiful every single day, and loves you even when you haven’t showered in a week. This Christmas, give your girl the crown jewels she deserves. Joomi Lim’s Crystal & Spike necklace is a wonderful “I Love You” piece because...
ON THE 15TH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Jenny says: It’s not an easy task, picking out a pair of shoes as a gift. When it involves a lady, the best advice is usually to choose something she’s already picked out. In the event of a gift for a gentleman, if you are considering shoes as a gift, it might well be because he needs them. Think of this gift as a gift for both of you. He gets a well fashioned, comfortable, crepe...
ON THE 14TH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Marcus says: Is there a more perfect gift than a perfect sweater? Warm and wooly, soft to the touch, and utterly appropriate for the season, sweaters are just the gift that keep on giving during the holidays. Consider putting a few of these Wings + Horns cashmere blend sweaters under someone’s tree this year and you aren’t just giving the gift of comfort, but classic style....
ON THE 13TH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Lilly reminisces: Remember all those crazy times you had with your college roommate? I don’t either; it’s mostly a big blur. Kikkerland knows that working stiffs look back fondly on their days of drinking jungle juice out of red party cups but as a “grown up”, you need a more adult and dignified way to go about drinking (jungle juice or otherwise). Lucky for you...
ON THE 12TH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Lilly says: Your bestie is one of the most important people in your life. She’s always there to laugh with, to cry with, to drink with… and shop with! Show your soul sister how much you really appreciate her with a pair of Made Her Think spike stud earrings, and an Imm Living jewelry tray to display them proudly in. A set like this is more than just a gift, it’s a...
ON THE 11TH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Marcus Gripes: My grandpa was one of those guys who cut his hair at the same barber on the same day every week; a seriously old school kind of guy. And one thing he would never do is walk out of the house without his shoes neat and clean. Rachel Comey’s Jericho Boot has a gorgeous texture in a beautiful brown color, but what good is all that wonderful leather if you let it get gross...
ON THE TENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Jenny says: Picnic at the park? Outdoor music festival? Spontaneous drive down the coast with a midday nap on the beach? Think of this gift as giving for future occasions. The Pendleton Carry Along Blankets can be symbolic of times to come, random acts of travel and romantic getaways on the horizon. Or they can just be really cool gifts. Take your pick. Pendleton Carry Along Blankets ($87)
ON THE NINTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Jenny says: One of the many reasons I love the holidays is for the dressing up. You don’t need an excuse, IT’S THE HOLIDAYS. It’s not just a lady thing, the dapper gentleman agree, the holidays produce the best parties to put your best foot forward. And for that dapper guy that needs a holiday gift, what better than something to help the cause? Gentry makes some of the best...
ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Lilly says: The key to gifting your beau a wallet is to put yourself in his shoes pants. Imagine sitting on a deck of cards—now imagine sitting on it for 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. Sound uncomfortable? It is. That’s why Makr wallets and their simple but detailed designs are beloved by our male shoppers. The Angle Wallets are hand made from fine leather, comes in a variety of...
boys & girls: restocks!
Two of our (and your) favorite Fall items have just been restocked! Jeffrey Campbell, France Boot ($200) Gitman Brothers Vintage, Overdyed Navy Shirt ($144)
ON THE SEVENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Jenny says: There always seem to be a struggle between buying a practical gift and a fun gift. Something she really wants but also something she really needs. Your sister might live in Seattle where it perpetually rains, or your best friend might be moving to London where Wellies are OK. You might just be looking for a gift that is thoughtful yet useful. There’s nothing like the feeling...
ON THE SIXTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Marcus says: I hate wearing puffer jackets because, inevitably, I feel like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters. But Appropriato takes a blazer, quilts it, fills it with down and feather, and even throws in a DuPont ActiveLayer lining for a blazer that’s lightweight, incredibly warm, windproof, water resistant, and properly fitted. Fashion forward gents in need of some...
ON THE FIFTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Lilly sings: …my true love gave to me, five golden rings! But really, these TOMTOM rings are the perfect gift for your girl. Why, you ask? Well, let me tell you: There’s no real commitment that comes with these You can purchase anywhere from one to five depending on how naughty or nice she’s been this year ;) She will tell all her friends that you bought her jewelry, and it’ll put you...
ON THE FOURTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Marcus says (or is it “slurs”?): As the store’s resident whisky/whiskey hound, I was totally in favor of bringing in Teroforma’s Whisk(e)y Lover’s Set. If you know someone who loves their spirits nice and chilled but hates watering down that 18-year Yamazaki, they’ll want it served on the (soapstone) rocks. And the paired glasses mean that you’ll be...
ON THE THIRD DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Jenny says: A beautiful wallet is more than a sign of good taste, it says something about the way you live your life. Do you have a million receipts stuffed into your wallet? You probably have a messy bedroom. Is your wallet ripped on the corners? Your car probably needs a tune-up. Does your wallet have some sort of Velcro on it? You probably need to move out of your mom’s garage. Is...
ON THE SECOND DAY OF CHRISTMAS
Jenny says: Every year there’s someone on your gifting list that’s impossible to shop for. Sometimes it’s the same person every year, making gift giving the most daunting part of the holidays. He’s cool, he has everything, he’s picky about sizing, he thinks gift cards are impersonal, he rides a cool bike and would never shop at the mall. You need to find...
ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS...
If you’re anything like us, your Christmas list is endless (or at least it seems like it), so we’ve decided to help you cross everyone off your list, regardless of whether they’ve been naughty or nice. In that spirit, every day for the entire month of December, the Acrimony team will be recommending their personal favorites, from big showy gifts to simple stocking stuffers. ...
