Father's Day Gift Guide

Father’s Day is tricky. Lots of dads are either difficult to shop for or don’t really like getting presents at all, and there’s only so many times you can go buy dad some new black dress socks before things get a little boring and predictable. My suggestion? Use the opportunity to update your husband’s or dad’s style game in a way that he may not think to do for himself. Unless, of course, the dude you’re buying for is the type who’s already given you the model number of the power tool he’d like to receive. In that case, this gift guide probably isn’t for you.

If you’re still with us, we’ve got a sampling of accessories that we think would be both well-received by almost any man and fun to give for you as well. After all, you’re the one who has to look at him. From watches to man bags to ties (Yes, there is one tie. My dad always asked for ties before he retired, so I had to include one for the ladies with like-minded pops out there.), we have lots of suggestions for Father’s Day happiness waiting after the jump.

The first thing I learned while researching options for this post is that almost all men’s watches under $1000 are inexcusably hideous, giant-faced things that make me wonder if the wearer is trying to compensate for his shortcomings by wearing the biggest, gaudiest, most crowded-faciest (a technical term) watch possible. That’s why I included two gorgeous, masculine, impeccably-designed watches in this guide, the first of which being the Uniform Wares 250 Series Steele Wrist Watch. With a midcentury modern face and a simple brown leather band, this is what you buy for both your own personal Don Draper and your dad who hates what the kids are wearing these days. $630 via Mr. Porter.

      My dad’s in his 60s too. Wayfarers look good on virtually everyone, they’ve been around for ages. I’ve seen plenty of men in that age range wear them.

      I generally consider Wayfarers and Aviators to be classics in terms of eyewear. My father who is almost 60 still has both of these styles since the 80s and he still looks fab on them.
