Whether he's super stylish or doesn't like to think about what he's wearing at all, these featured products are timeless, modern, comfortable, and suitable for or not!

HOLIDAY ROUNDUP II December 10 2013

We had a little photo fun this morning and came up with some more great Holiday gifts from the Service stocklist. Hope you enjoy. 

Above, Barbour wool messenger bag ($270) & Barbour waxed canvas backpack ($215).

Good looking Nixon watches in multiple styles ($175-$200).

Barbour striped wool travel bag ($400) might have to fight the Service crew for this one, we've all got our eyes on it.

And the outtakes...what a weirdo.


Matthew, who's been at Service for a year and a half, moved to Austin from FLA when we was only one year old! When he's not working, Matthew plays soccer (It's been said he has a great soccer ass), and designs men's bags. He's been named the store's songbird; his specialties being Kate Bush and Mariah Carey. 

Where else do you shop besides Service? What? I don't have anything left over after all my purchases at Service!

Are you feeling Christmas-y? No, the weather has been too hot. The cold the last few days has helped though.

What are your favorite holiday movies? Home Alone, the Rudolph one, and Misery.

Where's your favorite place in Austin to hang out? Most days you can find me playing cribbage at Centennial Park with my friend Vance Bondurant III. (Matthew is also the store's resident comedian!).


Matthew is wearing:

Penguin, window plaid blazer

Gitman Vintage, long sleeve over-dye dobby

Hartford, green corduroy pants

Florsheim, wingtip boot

Nixon, mellor cream watch
