Another Man's Fantasy Advent Calendar: Marlon Brando

We look under Marlon Brando's Christmas Tree, via the Another Man Instagram account...

Every day this December, Another Man's Instagram account is bringing us a new episode in their annual fantasy advent calendar – a four-week celebration of four of the greatest icons known to mankind, captured by photographer Gareth Powell. The inaugural chapter for 2015 explores what one would put under Marlon Brando's Christmas tree: a brilliant question for all of us to ponder. A man whose appearance was so synonymous with defiance that Schott Perfectos were actually banned from American high schools in his honour, the selection of presents that the Another Man team chose to encapsulate his spirit are similarly rebellious – and surely those he would want to open come Christmas Day. From the perfect pair of A.P.C jeans (Brando used to wear his to film premieres) to a vintage hipflask, Danny Lyon's phenomenal book on motorbikes (a testament to Brando's role in The Wild One) to a biker-appropriate Belstaff leather jacket, it is an enviable selection that would surely transform even the most staid of receivers into an unruly heartthrob.
