As seen on Shark Tank when Mark Cuban said, “Wow, you guys really make the perfect polo shirts…” We too choose BOABAB for their black polo shirt this Father’s Day. This is the perfect gift for the dad who understands that fit is the most important thing when it comes to attire.
Does the pop on your list sport a cap with his favorite team’s logo? If so, well maybe it’s time for an upgrade. Tenth Street Hats has the greatest selection of hats for men (and women). Considering the season, this Father’s Day, we selected their Cod Father. This hand-woven Panama safari hat will keep the man cool during all outdoor activities. We gave it extra points because it is made in the U.S.A.
Is dad fascinated by the transportation of NYC? If so, we recommend a trip to the New York Transit Museum. As businesses and historic places reopen this summer, here is the perfect opportunity to give dad an extraordinary gift. The brick and mortar locations are temporarily closed but you can learn a lot online through their virtual programs — you can also shop in their gift shop. We like their NYC Subway Token Sterling Silver Cufflinks and their framed wall art depicting transportation scenes through the eyes of local artists.
Is pop a sleepy head? Does he cherish a daily nap? We have a unique idea for the tired man — silk pillowcases by Celestial Silk. We chose their Galaxy print for dad to get the best rest and dream under the stars and in a place where no man has ever gone before. Truth is, the silk will help keep him cool in the summer and warm in the winter and catch some well-deserved Zzzzzz.
House of Dad is a small business owned by two fathers, Greg and Rich. They created a t-shirt company with some ridiculous, witty and funny logos. “It’s also the funny, ridiculous stuff that we put ourselves through as parents because we “love our children so much.” It’s the stuff we like to do when if we’re away from the kids, when we’re with our wives, and when we’re with the fellas.”
In the same spirit, we chose House of Dad for one reason: Their wit, their wisdom, and their entrepreneurship. Your dad will too.
For the mystery solver on your Father’s Day list who thinks he is Sherlock Holmes or an armchair private investigator, Even If It Kills Me is a dark and brooding virtual tour of murder and suspense set in various scenarios. If Dad is/was a Goth, he just might enjoy the online offbeat game with up to 10-other participants. Two of the mysteries include the titles Bingo Butcher and O Holy Fright. This is not exactly for ‘Father Knows Best’ kind of dad.
We all know that dads come in all shapes and sizes. While big and burley seems to get all the attention due to advertising, we would like to inform you of the creative and necessary apparel by Ash & Erie. This clothing line offers amazing attire for men 5’8” and under. They offer chinos, jeans, shirts, coats, etc. in their casual, smart casual and formal collections. If you don’t find the right color or item, we recommend their gift card option.
“I’ve written a letter to Daddy, his address is on Fifth Avenue.”
This holiday we chose the amazing collection from Briony Raymond New York. This collection offers amazing pieces with a Zodiac collection. If your father appreciates fine gold and diamonds, then this is the place to dig deep and save for the future. They offer medallions, rings and bracelets in the best elements found on this planet.
Using her training as an art historian and a fine jewelry expert, Briony Raymond’s (and her concierge-level collections) represent the very best of vintage fine jewelry from some of the most popular houses including Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier and JAR.
Briony Raymond is available to design a specific piece to grant your father’s wishes.
Dad needs a new pair of sneakers. We suggest that you look no further than LOCI. This is the latest fashion in stark white with their signature design. You can pick your father’s favorite color: We appreciate and admire the design above.
For his bathroom, we selected Mixture Man. Most men are not fond of certain colognes, perfumes and air fresheners. Always keep in mind that men can taste very well, but smell’s scent belongs predominantly to women. This being said, give Dad the gift of Mixture Man. This is a small jar with coal and a scented oil that conjures up the great outdoors. Just a few drops on the Lava Rock Diffuser will make the entire bath smell fresh and inviting and much better than Mount Vesuvius.
Happy Father’s Day to all men who helped populate mother earth.
