Father's Day Gifts Idea 1 - SOCK IT TO 'EM
When it comes to novelty ties, there’s a fine line between a strong style statement and a David Brent-style novelty dud. Happy Socks’ collection of Beatles printed designs falls firmly into the former, making them the perfect gift for any Dads that are fans of the ‘Fab Four’. The vinyl-sized gift box with hinge lid houses six pairs of different designs, each of which will perk up any outfit.
For a one-off that’s, literally, a cut above, it’s hard to beat a made-to-measure shirt, which can be designed to the wearer’s exact tastes and measurements. Be warned, though – treat your old man to the unrivalled comfort of a custom-made shirt and he’ll find it tricky, if not downright impossible, to go back to standard, off-the-peg designs.
Proving that the best things often come in small packages, inside the Louis Copeland made-to-measure shirt gift box the recipient will find an invitation card explaining the made-to-measure process, a tape measure and a few samples of the type of fabrics and buttons they will find in-store.
Whether for business or pleasure, Eton makes some of the finest shirts in the business. Not for shrinking violets, this 100% cotton, machine-washable design combines a vintage floral print with a contemporary fit, making it the perfect choice for the fashion-forward father looking to spruce up his wardrobe.
A significant upgrade on the average summer footwear, Swims’ Stride feature non-marking rubber outsoles, traction grips and an advanced ventilation and drainage system, making them the ideal warm weather accompaniment. Definitely not your common-or-garden summer shoe, then!
It’s a truth universally acknowledged – shopping for new jeans is one of life’s less enjoyable activities. Leaving the comfort zone and shedding worn-out old favourites can be a wrench, and negotiating a minefield of different cuts, washes and styles makes for a laborious, overwhelming experience.
With their regular fit and dark wash, these Jacob Cohen jeans — with their distinctive yellow badge — are suitable for style-savvy Dads, but they’re certainly not ‘Dad jeans’. Available in waist sizes from 32-40, they’re the perfect addition to any man’s wardrobe and boast a craftsmanship that will ensure they endure.
A quality leather wallet is a man’s best friend, equally at home in the boardroom or the bar. And that’s why every Dad will relish receiving a sleek design if his existing one is in need of an upgrade.
Whether it’s for an overnight stay or a trip to the gym, your father deserves more than a downtrodden holdall. The Eduard Dressler travel bag is a handsome bit of kit that combines form and function. Boasting a solid construction with sleek leather trim, it has a detachable shoulder strap and includes a removable wash bag.
Today’s men don’t have too many outlets for decorative flourishes about their person. A tie, a pocket square, perhaps some subversive socks and, of course, a pair of classy cufflinks. Crafted from stainless steel, Tateossian’s spinnable roulette cufflinks are a fun talking point that will jazz up any shirt.
Summer always calls for a box-fresh polo T-shirt, and Gant’s are some of the best on the market. A high-quality cotton construction will keep the wearer feeling (and looking) cool when the temperatures soar.
If you’re still stumped on what to choose, or if you’re buying for a father that’s hard to please, there’s always the beauty of a voucher. While it might not score highly on the imagination front, it’s the perfect way of letting your father pick what suits him best.
Our Gift Vouchers come gift-wrapped in our signature Louis Copeland & Sons presentation box and, rather handily, have no expiry date – so the old man can take his time deciding how he’ll spend it.
