This week we created an exclusive, hand-picked list of a few of our top items that could make the perfect Christmas gift. Trust us, you won’t be disappointed.
Champion Crew Sweatshirt (Navy) & Champion Sweatpants (Navy)
Christmas morning attire sorted the Number Six way. Champion make everything you’ve ever needed and can have you ready for any daily routine. The sweatpants feature an elasticated waistband with a hidden drawstring and elasticated ankles that means you can do Christmas day just right. The classic ‘C’ logo is that unmistakable mark of quality, at the left sleeve, left chest, and left hip it’s the devil in the detail. Matching it with a sweatshirt is just the icing on the cake: a foolproof idea for a Christmas gift you can’t go wrong with.

The Number Six top Carhartt pick is the super well-made Jonesville Bomber Jacket. It’s the all-singing, all-dancing design that features ribbed cuffs and hem, a full-length front zip closure and side hand warmer pockets. Protecting against the cold and keeping the look together. What more could you want for the festive season?

Laboratory Perfumes Tonka Eau de Toilette
Another Number Six favourite is the Laboratory Perfumes Eau de Toilette range. Each fragrance smells insane, lasts for ages, and evolves throughout the day. Founded by scent specialist Christopher Perry, the brand represents all things British. The range is based on British landscapes and is always blended with fine precision. Our current go-to is Tonka: one of the most detailed fragrances out there. Tonka is the 4th Laboratory Perfume, and one for the muskier man. Vanilla and tobacco notes give a masculine scent that settles in nicely. A sure-fire winner for the winter ahead, all wrapped together into one distinctive fragrance.

Universal Works Bakers Chore Jacket (Blanket Stripe)
Universal Works, a British contemporary menswear label, take inspiration from mid-century Cuban rebels and Havana locals alike. They’ve made a name for themselves with some key silhouettes across the years. The Bakers Jacket is a long-term Number Six favourite, with a traditional workwear heritage behind it. The Bakers Chore Jacket is an updated twist on the classic thanks to its blanket striped self fabric. Constructed from a wool blend, it’s another cold weather winner.

Techne Instruments Merlin 246 GB Watch (Orange)
It’s no secret that at Number Six we’re all about quality. Techné Instruments have been making military inspired watches since 2009. Creative director Francis Jacquerye takes a hands-on approach to the construction and design of his watches. He knows what he’s doing, and it shows.

The Merlin watch features corrosion-resistant stainless steel casing, quartz movement and a 5 bar water resistance. Not only are Techné watches built to last, but they’re styled as part of a classic military design that can be worn both casually and dressed up.
