13 Cardigans That Won't Make You Look Like Mr. Rogers

Thanks to Mr. Rogers (who inexplicably spent significant airtime getting dressed while singing), cardigans have been synonymous with kindly old grandpas who want to teach you how to share. But honestly—it’s time to take back the cardigan (thanks for the gentle shove in that direction, Drake). Check out 13 of our favorites on Made Man

Cat Coin Purse

Cat obsessives will shriek with joy when you gift them with this Cat Coin Purse ($3, Choies), which they can stuff with their cash and credit cards and look forward to getting endless compliments at either the Cat Cafe they frequent or the pet store they spend too much money at (organic food and extra cat toys ain't cheap).

Get the Look: Barack Obama

After surveying the shitshow of this election season, the overwhelming sentiment towards Barack Obama has been, "Damn, I'm gonna miss that guy." We've spent 8 years having a cool, young, stylish President—one that plays pick-up basketball games and literally drops the mic at state dinners. Even in standard suits, dad jeans and golf shirts, Barry O's swag is undeniable. So in the last few months of his presidency, let's pour one out for one of our most stylish presidents ever. And though you may never be president, you can sure as hell learn something about how to dress (and how to act) from him.  Read it on Made Man

King of Beers Framed Print

As the craft beer revolution takes hold, beer is no longer regarded as the champagne of the blue collar set. And because beer is enjoying the premium cache it hasn't really ever had (despite every beer brand's best marketing efforts), guys like your husband are delighting in the fact that they can go virtually anywhere—including the fancy restaurant you insisted on going to for your anniversary—and get a beer without looking like a low-class dbag.  

So while beer has achieved a higher status, it makes sense that the "ode to brew" decorations in your house get an upgrade as well.  Trash the Bud Light paraphenalia.  Get rid of the neon beer signs that he's held onto since his bachelor pad days.  Swap them out with well-designed beer gear, like this King of Beers Framed Print ($37, Society6).  It looks so good, you won't relegate it to his man cave.

[GIFTED] Vintage Game Set

You'll be on a family vacation and it'll only be a matter of time before someone older starts complaining about how all of the kids in the room are glued to their phones or tablets.  "Back in my day, kids played outside!" they'll say.  Of course, we all know that the phrase "back in my day..." is just code for "I'm old and I'm afraid that the world is leaving me behind."  And although you know the merits of kids staring into a screen all day are dubious at best, you're just happy the devices are keeping those damn kids quiet so you can enjoy your few days of vacation time in peace. 

But after the first few days of vacation, you get really relaxed.  Your phone ends up in the other room and you don't even care.  Your baseline alcohol level is healthy and you're officially ready to interact with the kids.  You instate a "no devices" rule and pull out this Vintage Game Set ($20, Uncommon Goods). Watch as your grandfather delights in teaching the kids how to play "pick up sticks," which is presumably a child's game that came out of extreme poverty (no iPads there, you guys!  We just had STICKS to play with!).  ARE WE HAVING FUN YET?
