We’ve got a mushy holiday on the horizon, and while some of you might spend it anti-celebrating it with Ben & Jerry your best friends, others have a hot date with their hubby. Whether your man friend is a platonic pal you’ve been batting eyelashes at or a longtime boyfriend, any of these sweet treats will give ‘em the warm fuzzies on February 14. We checked in with a couple familiar faces around ‘the Loop, Dennis Todisco (Lifestyle Marketing Director) and Isaiah Bond (Men’s Shoe Buyer), to see what these good lookin’ fellas are hoping to receive for V-Day.

Isaiah’s got all bases covered for a romantic evening: on the naughty side, he wants his girl to pick up lingerie for herself (like the Zebra Print Babydoll from *Intimates Boutique) plus he thinks the La Sardina El Capitan Camera would be dope for a fun filled photoshoot (wink wink, you’ll be the model tonight); for nice gifts, Isaiah would adore some new shoes like the 1460 8-Tie Boot in Cherry Red (he is a footwear buyer afterall) and a home cooked Asian meal…a good excuse to use the Good Fortune Chopsticks by FRED.


While Isaiah took his naughty/nice list literally, Dennis went conceptual… highlighting colorful product as nice and dark camo prints as naughty.

  • The Reversible Souvenir Jacket in Black by BLVCK SCVLE: This jacket from the homies at Blvck Scvle is tuff…waxed cotton on one side, poplin camo on the other. And the illest thing about reversible jackets is when you travel, it’s like packing two jackets for the space of one.
  • The High Post Cargo Pants in Grey Camo by 10 Deep: (As you may have figured out) I’m mildly obsessed with camo & I love 10 Deep’s refreshing spin on the classic WWII frog skin camo, plus plenty of pockets & a clean cut. Can’t go wrong with these.
  • The 21 Boot in Wine by Gourmet: If you love your man you’ll get him the 21 Boot in Wine by Gourmet. The juxtaposition of the traditional duck boot with the modern air bubble support makes this the choice boot for the winter. And nothing says love like rich burgundy leather.
  • The 42-20 Chrono Watch in All Gold by Nixon: The 42-40 Chrono is flawless and one of my favorite watches from Nixon. 6 hand japanese quartz, second sub dial, chrono and date, hardened mineral crystal external rotating bezel with countdown timer. ¬†One of the nicest watches on Karmaloop, hands down. (No pun intended)
