November 24, 2017 I’m writing this brief note on Thanksgiving. I want to start-off this special issue by offering my sincerest gratitude to the amazing team of people that took this project on. It was a big undertaking; and wouldn’t be possible without Artists by Timothy Priano along with James T. Murray, Yuco Lacovara and company. I want to express my thanks and deep admiration to Marcel Floruss, Igee Okafor, Leo Chan, Steven Onoja, Ian Michael Crumm and Chris Burt-Allan for teaming up on this project with MAN of METROPOLIS. We are thrilled to have these fine gentlemen join us this year for the 2017 Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide. Each menswear expert shared their top picks of the season with us and we worked diligently to curate their selections into this special catalogue style issue. Inside this issue we also include some beautiful gifts for the home and added in a new women’s gift section that will offer up beautiful ideas for the lady in your life. Also, I do have some favorites this season; like Hiro Clark’s t-shirts, sweaters by Coach and Ralph Lauren and back-packs by Ted Baker and Michael Kors. Finally, look out for an iconic dinner jacket, a luxurious shearling coat, and so much more. We hope you enjoy our 2017 ULTIMATE HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE!

Warmest Wishes, Seth Travis CEO, FOUNDER & EDITOR-IN-CHIEF
