When choosing gifts for the guys lucky enough to be on your list who have a more advanced appreciation of style, the problem is to get past the products that are merely masquerading as elegant and find those that are truly designed to improve both life and looks. 

Here are 10 of the best at various price points:

Any style-obsessed sort is likely obsessed with Off-White, creative guru Virgil Abloh's cult label. This scarf reverses to a bold leopard print when your recipient is feeling a bit wild.

Camouflage is no longer novel at this point, but the design gurus at Stubbs & Wooten just upped the game by rendering it in needlepoint.

Buck Mason Vintage Shawl Cardigan, $225

This merino wool and cashmere cardigan is the kind of item a man of style could easily wear all winter, and probably will. Not east because it's fit is a little more tailored than the usual.

Bang & Olufsen Beoplay True Wireless Earphones, $300
