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.
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)
For our 3rd round of employee wishlists, we’ve got Erika, one of the most cheerful faces around the office! Read on for all her picks.
Job at Karmaloop? I’m an Assistant Buyer at Karmaloop! However, unlike the other buyers here, I do not handle apparel brands. In exchange, I am responsible for the headphones, housewares, and some accessories such as media cases for the site.
Describe your style: Far East Side meets the Dirty South!!!
Favorite part of the holiday season? It used to be Santa Claus until some kid at school burst my bubble. I was on a mission to capture the dude for years. Now, I simply enjoy the time I get to spend with my family and loved ones.

Yes, Boston has its own Fashion Week — with a tent and everything! Later this month *Vintage Boutique will be walking a BFW runway, so it’s only fitting we would give you a teaser of what’s to come. Vintage buyer Carolina Tirado has been flexing her styling prowess to organize a 10-look, super wearable show featuring new previously loved threads (ha there’s a good oxymoron for ya!). Plus, to mark the event, Carolina put together a mini-lookbook to make us giddy over this season’s upcoming drops. These shots display never-before-seen pieces, and we highly recommend you stay tuned for the fresh merchandise that will be stepping down the catwalk. The show will be held at Cyclorama at 539 Tremont Street, Boston MA on September 24, 10pm. If you are in the Boston area and would like to purchase tickets for the presentation, visit The Emerging Trends.
