It’s that time of year again: Father’s Day, graduation, BBQs, beach trips, gold outings all summer, the works. Here are some practical ideas for making you or the other men in your life – whether dad, grads, avid golfers, summer sportsmen or birthday celebrants – feel truly gifted.

Fila Golf Bermuda Shorts, shirts, and other quality sporting apparel will add some style to your swing as you dazzle in the sun. Created to meld fashion, comfort, and durability in sports apparel in 1911, Fila is loved by pro athletes and regular folks alike for its friendly prices and cool sporting styles for hot weather. Visit ShopFilaGolf.com to peruse the lineup, and prepare for a victorious match.

You can’t go wrong with the look of a crisp, clean dress shirt in summer, as it’s something that’s useful for both casual and formal events (plus, you can never have too many). Faconnable’s classic shirts are well constructed with high quality materials and are available in an array of elegant patterns and colors. You can also find crisp polo shirts, stylish swimwear and denim jeans at http://www.us-faconnable-store.com.

This is the source for all things rugged, western, and related to riding horses – whether in the English or Western style. Ariat’s summer clothing lineup includes well-crafted, light clothing such as short-sleeved shirts, and durable jeans that will stand up to daylong wrangling. Check out this site, which offers a multitude of equally impressive offerings.

It’s time to get an Ice Watch from Belgium, if you haven’t already. Suitable for men or women, and in available in an eye-popping numbers of colors and styles (Army, F**k Me, I’m Famous, Ice-World flag graphics, Color Solid, Ice Chocolate, Ice Chrono and a dozen others), the Ice Watch is waterproof and worn by a slew of celebs, including tennis ace Antonio Veic and former Belgium Prime Minister Yves Leterme.
