Well, it’s that time of year again when you have to find the perfect gift for that special someone, and you’re all out of ideas. If that somebody is special enough, you’ll want to go the extra mile to get them something that they will be proud to own and use for a good long time. We paid a long overdue visit to our friends Foster and Charlotte at Trove General in Paoli, Pennsylvania, and they pointed us toward a few of their favorite pieces in the shop. There’s a little something for everyone, from an American copper flask for the guy who has everything, to gorgeous candles for your gracious host. Trove General is open Monday through Saturday from 10-6, and Sundays from 12-5 only a few blocks from the Paoli stop off Septa’s Paoli/Thorndale line. In fact, I’m sure some of you even drive by on your way home from work and have no idea it’s nestled in an unassuming little strip mall. Pay them a visit and be sure to tell them The American Classic sent you. Click here to see the ultimate gift guide created with Trove General.

Masterson – The Prisoner ($225)

“…I have an acquaintance that happened by approx 10 gallons of Holy water from a temple here in LA. The shirts were soaked in this water. Then hang dried under the moon and the morning sun. To top it all off, a friend placed on small pebble of rose quarts, again, blessed under moonlight. Then the extra added Hand pounded wishbone. End user needs to decide placement, Makes a grand necklace as well. Then a final blessing from a sun alchemist. BOOM.”

“I+W is forever a favorite because not only is the product incredible, but they people behind it are equally as cool and kind. They operate like a down to earth family, and with so much integrity, its inspiring really. They continually stand out in the denim/fashion world in general because they’re the real deal, there are some things you just cant fake.” -Charlotte

“…for both the I+W and levis pieces, its pretty awesome to see really well made denim being offered for women! Esp. the I+Ws, because they’re flattering on just about every body type. The attention to tailoring to a women’s body, as opposed to just making a men’s style in women’s sizes, totally sets them apart.” -Charlotte
