For the Man in Your Life
To make sure your gentleman father receives something a trifle stylish this Father’s Day, here’s a few ideas…
His jokes make you laugh and cringe in equal measure, his dancing leaves a lot to be desired (in fact, you’re pretty sure he coined the term ‘Dad Dancing’), and his fashion sense could do with a rather sharp haul into the 21st century. But despite all that, your dad is your hero, and Father’s Day is the perfect day to treat him. To make sure your dad doesn’t wake up empty handed on the 18th June, we’ve compiled the essential gift guide for every dad and every budget.
For the modern gentleman who is always dapper, brushes from the Oxford Brush Company will keep his facial hair in check whilst looking smart on the bathroom shelf. A bottle of delicious gin is a failsafe – Foxdenton Estate Gin produce theirs by hand in seven delicious flavours, but you can’t go far wrong with the classic Sloe or brand new Golden Apricot. If you’re not so sure of your dad’s favourite tipple, a weighty glass or set of travel cups will be at home within his liquor cabinet for years to come.
Now we don’t like to assume, however it has been said that fathers can be a little forgetful. Atlas & I’s Key Labelling Tags are the perfect way to keep track of those countless keys we all have knocking around, and they can be personalised with a vintage map location as well as your own text. They also come in a gift box to sidestep the gift-wrapping headache. A glasses case and hip flask is a great present for that hard-to-buy-for dad and these can also be personalised to any location in the world to make a memorable gift.
If you’re keen to update his accessory collection, do so with a silk tie and fun canvas belt from Wingfield Digby. A set of 100 per cent cotton handkerchiefs from Beaufort & Blake will freshen up his pocket and cufflinks by County Equestrian Jewellers are a great choice for the dad who loves to spend his free time out in the field. There are so many styles of shirt by the Oxford Shirt Company to choose from, but you can’t go wrong with a classic blue stripe. For the slightly more adventurous, a Liberty print is a sharp and unusual choice.
If your dad’s somewhat of a jetsetter, you’ll know that he can never have enough luggage. A duffel bag from Oliver Brown will see him travel in style and Beaufort & Blake’s smart swimshorts, available in a variety of different styles, are sure to get him in the pool once he’s reached his destination. For the explorer, stylish Trilbys from Farlows add a stylish edge to an outfit, and Fairfax & Favor’s smart yet casual footwear is the perfect accompaniment to his holiday style.
