Man of the Hour

Fashion News

This Father’s Day, we’re looking beyond the usual go-to gifts with this well-edited list of ideas for real dads—not the Hallmark variety. Since no holiday would be complete without an Instagram photo opp, we’d like to suggest a tropical twist on the father/son look with matching trunks from Vilebrequin. Besides being an adorable moment to capture, we’re pretty sure you’ll be setting your son’s sartorial compass in the right direction with this look.


Where would a cool dad be without his trusty shades? Morgenthal Frederics has the always-in-fashion aviators from their Air Corps Collection. We’re especially keen on these Star and Fury frames, which will look great on a dad like yours.


Ok, so sometimes a button-down shirt is required. And when it is, we suggest wearing one of Thomas Pink’s new Athletic Fit shirts, which subtly recognizes dad’s Crossfit efforts with its tapered cut. Keep up the great work!


On the flip side, when it’s time to cut loose, Gucci has just the look for you. The Bengal-print polo is a statement-maker indeed. Think of it as the new and improved Hawaiian shirt—one you will be proud to be seen next to!


If you’ve visited the John Varvatos boutique, we don’t need to tell you how it instantly ups your cool quotient. Though we are big fans of the rad leather jackets and rock and roll chic vibe of the collections, it’s the artwork that often steals our attention. Treat dad to a touch of nostalgia with one of these photo prints by Robert M. Knight.


Cocktail hour is a very important part of the day. So give yours the respect it deserves with this handsome bar cart from Nest Casa. The Arca Horn Trolley is as gentlemanly as they come, and will be the hit of any room you place it in.


If dad hasn’t already replaced his briefcase for a backpack, here are two reasons he should. Dolce & Gabbana’s Coat of Arms and Volcano-print backpacks are just the carry-all one needs. Maybe not boardroom appropriate (yet), but certainly a smart looking way to haul gym gear or for a quick carry-on.
