I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Shopping for dudes – especially ones who don’t consider a Best Buy gift certificate a viable gift – is no cake-walk. Especially during the holiday season, I have my eyes peeled for any and all new sources to tap for manly gift options. Enter IZOLA. Around since 2007, the company acted primarily as a shower-curtain supplier for big-name stores. Two years later, a partnership with design consultancy and showroom Aesthetic Movement (brainchild of Jesse James and Gus Anagnopoulus) substantially broadened the assortment. Now you’ll find oldtime-y barware, antique-looking desk accessories and of course, bath products – a nod to the vinyl shower-curtains that started it all.
