There are gift guides aplenty this season, everywhere you turn. But not all of them have the presence (get it? presence?) of rock and pop stars. Rag & Bone, the New York-based brand with jeans, jackets, leathers, boots and hats for guys and girls, has published a holiday gift guide featuring picks from Eddie Vedder and his wife, Jill, models Liu Wen and Christy Turlington, Blonde Salad blogger Chiara Ferragni and Grammy-nominated Macklemore. Ten percent of gift pick proceeds will go to a charity of each personality's choosing — a figure that Rag & Bone has pledged to match.
Macklemore chose the brand's Corina Fringe Dress ($795) for his fiancee, Tricia Davis. "I'm a huge fan of fringe," he writes on the site, "and black and leather and she would look phenomenal in this. Might take her out to a nice Italian meal. Kiss her hand. Throw on some Nat King Cole. Keep it classy." For his manager, he chose a bi-fold wallet in black: "Clean, simple yet cool design elements. Stash his cash and keep on working. Perfect gift." For Ryan Lewis, his partner on the album The Heist (which went platinum), he likes the $95 Henderson Flask. "No question, I'd give this flask to Ryan. He goes through Jameson like black belts go through wooden planks. He's going through his 'I'm an American badass' stage, polluting his body with tattoos and a cigarette velcroed to his bottom lip."
Eddie and Jill Vedder used somewhat different lingo in their choices -- they recommend one of the label's wide-brimmed fedoras in navy ($195, "a little softer than black and it's a cool way to top off your look") and they love the men's $325 Rowan boot in brown -- "it will just get better with age."
