Dad's are synonymous with a few things. Embarrassing you in public, being late to pick you up, and wearing dad jeans. While we can't really help with the first two, we can certainly help with the third. Father's Day is your opportunity to help ensure your dad's style is more elevated than the garden-variety dad. We've identified some ways you can help upgrade his look, whether at work, the cottage, or anywhere in between.
A Sleek Belt: Whether your father is the type to wear a suit Monday through Friday or only at weddings and funerals, the handsome belts from Anderson's are hard to argue against. Made in Italy from a stretch Nylon (or Leather), each individual belt is hand finished and polished by expert craftsmen.
Well Fitting Jeans: "Dad" jeans have become just as synonymous with the likelihood of him embarrassing you in public. That won't change. Instead of not wearing jeans, upgrade them! Outclass makes an 11oz jean using a soft, Italian denim. The cut is tapered, but not so much that he'll feel silly wearing them.
An Oxford Shirt: An Oxford shirt is a must for every man, regardless of age or fatherly status. Pair it (untucked) with jeans for a classic relaxed look or with chinos for a more refined vibe. Regardless, these woven Oxfords from Bon Vivant will do just fine.
Grooming Essentials: Even the grisliest of dads need to shave from time to time. He may think using just some water with his shaving blade is fine but he needs to experience the unbridled joy of shaving with Crown Shaving Co. There's an array of products that will ensure his face is kept smooth, nourished and refreshed including two types of after shaves, a pre-shave glide formula and a hair and body wash. If he does keep a beard, then the Crown Beard Balm will keep his beard soft, making it easier to have it looking the way he wants. It also helps nourish and lock in moisture not only in his whiskers, but also the skin beneath.
Smelling Good: No Drakkar Noir or Joop for the old man - get him the good stuff from Laboratory Perfumes, scientifically formulated to react to the wearer and evolve over the day. Inspired by the natural flowers, herbs and aromatic botanicals of Britain and beyond, the range of scents are made from natural oils, selected with care and blended with precision.
Socks (are OK): Do you get your dad socks every year? If so, shame on you! However, you can still keep getting him socks (and still feel like an adult) by getting him superior quality and distinctive socks from Anonymous Ism. Known for bright colours and beautifully crafted patterns, each pair is passionately woven by the company’s team of master artists in Japan.
Sweat Shorts: With the rise of the fitted sweat pants, comfortable bottoms have become acceptable to wear during workouts and around town alike. But the sweat short is an even better seasonal-spin on the jogger pant. The sweat short is the perfect combination of comfort and casual style. Simple design elements like a drawstring waist & a raw hem keep the Todd Snyder x Champoin shorts looking composed. Toss on a tee, hoodie or sweatshirt and park-hop through the city with your dog.
