FATHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE 2016
10 SPECIAL ITEMS THAT MAKE A PERFECT GIFT - BECAUSE DADS DESERVE A TREAT
It is time for you to get your thinking caps on for Father's Day! It is always tricky coming up with a slightly more original idea that will trump the usual patterned socks or DVD. So here at Menswear Style we have come up with a list of 10 special items that we believe make a perfect gift. All Dads deserve a treat on June 19th so why not dig a little deeper this year and buy something they will be really pleased with.
Mr Porter Travel Grooming Set
We absolutely love this travel grooming set from Mr Porter. It literally has everything a man needs for a quick business trip or a weekend away. What is extremely useful is that each product is 100ml or under which means they can be taken in hand luggage without a worry. This set contains some of the industry’s best grooming products including Clinique's Broad Spectrum moisturiser, D R Harris toothpaste and Malin and Goetz face cleanser. A really useful gift.
Johnnie Walker Gold Label
A bottle of tipple that is guaranteed to go down a treat is this blended scotch single malt whiskey from Johnnie Walker available at Alexander & James. This 70cl bottle comes in a beautiful set accompanied by two hexagonal glasses with tasteful gold detailing that match this smooth golden spirit. These combined are an essential gift for a serious drinker and will make any drinks cabinet look smart.
Canterbury Fitness Shirt
For the fitness focused Dad, trying to keep healthy in 2016, why not take a peek at this great piece of sportswear from Canterbury. Canterbury have created some really smart pieces for their SS16 training collection and this running top is certainly one of our favourites. Neon orange and black are a winning combination and with Thermoreg technology this will keep you cool and comfortable during fitness. It is perfect to wear whilst running on a cool day or just as a eye-catching piece of sportswear to wear to and from the gym.
Giles Deacon Whiskey Stones
What better to go with a bottle of whiskey than a set of limited edition whiskey stones. These may seem a bit of a designer luxury for a weekend drink but they will certainly make your whiskey more enjoyable. All you have to do is click on the link and enter the 'competition' to be sent a free set of stones. Fashion designer Giles Deacon collaborated with Heathrow Airport and the recent whiskey festival to produce these snazzy stones. If you don't already know, the idea of them is to prevent your whiskey losing flavour and weakening in strength, which normally happens when using regular ice. These will look really great in a nice crystal tumbler!
Tricker’s Regent Black Oxford Shoes
Do you know your Dad's shoe size by any chance?? If so, then these really are a treat. Perhaps you are a father yourself and would just like to drop a hint or two as a personal gift? These beautifully handcrafted Oxford shoes are a classic shoe which will never date. They may be simple in design but they are literally the perfect smart shoe which can be worn with any suit for either work or an important occasion. Being leather lined they will be extremely durable and comfortable. Yes, they come at a price but they are worth every penny.
G-Shock Limited Edition Watch
Is your Dad an art admirer? G-Shock have collaborated with legendary 1970s New York graffiti artist Futura. For their third collaboration together, Futura has used his monochrome atomic print to update a classic timepiece; the GD-X6900FTR-1. It has all the usual features of shock and water resistance, world time, LED backlight and a 10 year battery. If you or your father are a G Shock collector then this is definitely a watch you won't want to miss out on. Be sure to purchase one as soon as possible as these limited edition watches fly off the shelves!
Paul Smith Men's Straw Trilby
With Summer supposedly on its way, this hat by Paul Smith is absolutely perfect for providing a little shade in the garden on a sunny day, or will finish off a classic shorts and t-shirt outfit strolling down the beach on a relaxing holiday. Paul Smith is renowned for his prints and the Palm printed band just adds an extra something to this classic straw hat. This is perfect for Dads of all ages!
Albam Yarn Dye Sweatshirt
Is your Dad someone who likes to keep it simple and classic when it comes to clothing? How about this sweatshirt from one of our favourites, Albam. It comes in a variety of colours but if you feel like your Dad needs a bit of a re-fresh when it comes to styling, we recommend you go for the Regatta Blue. It is ideal to be worn with a pair of denim shorts at the end of a hot Summer's day and with its vintage look it is bound to become an instant wardrobe favourite.
Comme Des Garcons Embossed Wallet
Are you perhaps looking for a small gift for a fashion savvy father in-law? You can't really go wrong with a classic Comme Des Garcons leather wallet. This is the perfect size to keep the spare change in that is usually hanging around at the bottom of your suit pocket. Easily portable, minimal in design and a classic piece from a brand at the top of the avant-garde fashion league.
London Sock Company ‘One For Me, One For My Dad’ Set
The perfect gift for a Father and child to share this Father’s Day. The ‘For Me & My Dad’ gift set from London Sock Company is available in a 2 pair of 4 pair set, including matching father and child socks. Finely knitted using luxury Scottish Lisle Cotton, these limited edition socks are as comfortable and stylish for little feet (ages 2-12) as they are for big feet.
