Holiday Gift Guide: The Outdoorsman

—Urban Beardsman

If you’ve been reading our Holiday Gift Guides from your log cabin in the woods and wondered when we were going to get to your style, then wait no more. The Woodsy Outdoorsman is a rugged inspiration to many of us at Urban Beardsman. Rustic style, workwear, and heritage brands are bigger than ever this season. Whether you work outside or just look like you do, this gift guide is perfect for your neck of the woods.


The best way to warm your soul in the outdoors? Scalding hot coffee of course. The 32 oz. Howler from Best Made Company has a lightweight stainless steel body that is double-walled and vacuum insulated. It will keep beverages hot for 12 hours. The swing-top bale closure is a classic worthy of rugged service. If you’re an authentic outdoorsman check out their axe shop as well. $42


Holiday time usually means receiving a sweater, but this is one you’ll actually want. The J. Crew Shetland Wool Cable Sweater by Wallace & Barnes is a winter essential for all of those Holiday parties you’ll be dressing your beard up for. It’s a classic fisherman’s sweater woven in traditional Irish pattern and looks as good on the sidewalks of the city as it does on the deck of a ship. Pairs great with a navy peacoat as well. $118

Not a sweater guy? Flannel then. The Glenfield Flannel Shirt (shown here in Barnwood Plaid) from Buffalo Jackson will keep you warm this December. Choose from eleven woodsy patterns. I’ve got two of these and they are my favorite weekend flannels by far. Two front pockets with button flaps and stout buttons are great for working man’s hands. $85

Whether wandering through backcountry brush or cruising around town, you need a solid pair of khaki’s. Check out the Cramerton Army Cloth Chino from Tellason. Available in straight leg or tapered, these chinos feature a Corozo button fly, all cut and sewn in San Francisco. Cramerton twill was originally made in South Carolina in the late 1930’s for U.S. Army uniforms and is still made there today. Tough enough for army uniforms is tough enough for you. $198.00

You know we couldn’t leave out a pair of heritage boots to complete your wish list. The Iron Rangers (shown in #8111 Amber Harness) from Red Wing are the original iconic work boot. They’ve become fashionable in the last few years, but these bad boys are made for hard work. Triple stitched with waxed thread on thick harness leather, they take a while to break in but it’s totally worth it. Like growing a beard, patience will be rewarded. $320

Do you enjoy spending time in the pines, splitting wood and wearing flannel? Then it’s time to get some Tree Ranger mustache wax, beard oil, and beard wash & softener in your life. With a strong fresh mix of cedar, eucalyptus, and pine, this lightweight blend is one of Beardbrand’s most popular. Guaranteed to make you smell like you’ve been in the woods all day chopping down trees and being a man. $25


When you’re out adventuring you can always use the setting sun to tell you when it’s time to head home, but if you’re on a schedule you need a watch. The Sully Series wood watches from Jord are an homage to the flora and fauna of the forest. This one features dark sandalwood and maple wood with bubbled bezel, exaggerated numbers and a wide band. Sounds like the perfect stocking stuffer to us. $139
