Show your groomsmen just how much they mean to you with a little thank-you gift in true Miami style. From local leather goods to designer shades and swimwear, here's a few ideas to help you find the perfect pick around town for each of the guys.
Junior & Hatter
While the ladies are primping at the spa, get the guys in pre-wedding shape in the most manly way possible at Junior & Hatter's barbershop area, dubbed the "Man Cave" — complete with a foosball table! Tucked between Wynwood's art galleries and craft beer bars, the locally run salon can take care of everything from a cut to a hot shave or beard trim in a setting just as hip as you'd expect from the street art-lined neighborhood.
Menswear in Miami is simple — it's all based around the perfect pair of denim. Start at the source crafting bespoke jeans for your groomsmen for a gift they can wear on your wedding weekend, as well as when they get back home. Bring the guys to the Wynwood atelier for made-to-order jeans styled just as they'd like, and tailored right on the spot at the onsite factory that brings the neighborhood's reputation as Miami's Fashion District back to life.
The Miami-based duo behind the luxury sunglass line has worked with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld and Michael Kors, launching their own brand over 30 years ago. A favorite among everyone from Lenny Kravitz to the late Andy Warhol, the chic eyewear captures Miami Beach vibes with vintage throwbacks reminiscent of the 80s and 90s. Sold on Lincoln Road at the exclusive Artsee Eyewear gallery, these sunnies may not come cheap but they're definitely a stylish way to say thanks to your groomsmen for all their hard work.
After opening concept stores in far-flung spots from Fiji to Santorini, Miami transplant Andria Mitsakos recently launched her first shop inside Mid-Beach's Hotel Croydon: Wanderlista. A designer herself, Andria brings her wanderlust lifestyle and design savvy eye to the table curating a collection of brands from up-and-coming designers around the globe for menswear that is quintessential Miami Beach — think pastel swim trunks and printed tees — and stands out from other spots in town.
Designing and producing all of her products in Miami, local leather crafter Tiffany Zadi works entirely with ethically sourced material, whether it's buffalo leather from a Colorado ranch or recycled leather from a coat or couch, for products that look both rustic and slightly retro. From foldover salvaged leather cardholders to wallets and key rings, these quality goods are great from grooms looking for something different — and with pricepoints under $50, they're also a budget-friendly option.
