Father’s Day Gift Guide: Our Top Picks For Every Kind Of Dad.
Are you ready for fathers day?
Landing on Sunday 20th June, it’s now time to start considering your options. With a market filled with an array of tacky sports merchindise, beer tasting sets and novelty #No.1 Dad mugs, aside from being rather undesirable, they can also show a lack of effort on your part.
To avoid offence and making yourself look bad, The question is, “what kind of Dad is he?”
Is he a taditional old soul or young at heart? Is he a lover of gadgets and tec? Does he like his home coforts? Is he a buisness man transitioning to a new smart casual lifestyle? Does he have a thing for fresh shirts or polos? And to help you discover what is right for your Dad, we selected a series of our favouret gift ideas and seperated our Dads in to three distinct camps.
We hope along with this you will find the perfect gift for the Dads in your life.
The Traditional Dad –
Normally a man that knows what he likes and what has stood by him well over the years.
If he airs on the side of tradition and dosen’t want anything to fussy, look no further Thomas Maine and Stenstroms, offering a fantasic range of fresh white cotton shirts and a beauifully woven merino wool knitwear. This season we see the introduction of textured polo shirts and ones with trim detail on the placket. Regular fitting, both Thomas Maine and Stenstroms are both regular fitting, making selecting a size a little less risky.
+ Buy any 2 Thomas Maine shirts and get 30% off the second. T&C’s apply.
Jeans are had to choose, but if he seems to live in one pair of jeans, perhaps its time to get him a new pair. Our best selling staple as far as jeans are concerned, has to be 7 For All Mankind. Clean washes, ultra soft lux performance fabrics and a good everyman fit, 7’s are hard to beat. If he hasn’t had a pair before we would advise dropping a size as they measure up a little big. (Going down a size will also make him feel great)! There are two styles to choose from, Slimmy which is a straight leg and Ronnie which is slimmer.
Clean and casual, the cotton shirts from Portugeuese Flannel make the perfect summer shirt. Choose from a selection of short and long sleeve, stripe and woven cotton shirts. Team with shorts from MMX or A Fish Named Fred
The Patterned Dad Shirt –
These are for the more adventurous dads who like to be noticed. When teamed with a pair of JacobeCohen jeans, this dad has the confidence to wear bold patterns and statement prints. Check out shirts from A Fish Named Fred, Stenstroms, Universal Works, A.P.C and Wax.
The Label Dad –
Well read in fashion, this Dad knows his A.P.C’s from his RRD’s. Eager to see the latest arrivals and trends from leading brands such as Paul Smith, Jacob Cohen, Grenson and Psycho Bunny.

With the opening up of restictions, men still want to hold on to the feeling of comfort but in a fashionable and considered way.
