Father’s Day is this weekend, which might be a surprise to you because shopping sites don’t remind you of it nearly as much as they do Mother’s Day, unless you’re a frequenter of the Home Depot site. I’m not, mostly because I have nowhere to store a ride-on lawn tractor (and I don’t have a lawn), but somehow, I’ve managed not only to remember, but come up with the perfect dad bag gift: the Coach Bleecker Bar Stripe Day Tote. Hear me out on this.

To me, the perfect dad gift has to strike a balance. You have to get him something that has a practical use, but also something that he might not necessarily think to buy for himself. A fashionable-but-functional bag sits firmly in that category, and although leather stripes might be a little out there for traditionalists, this bag has a lot of promising Cool Dad characteristics.

First, it’s big enough to be regarded as luggage of sorts, which might make bag-resistant dads feel a little better about carrying it. Second, it’s got two handle options – totally practical. Third, the blue/brown/tan colorway is absolutely dad-approved, even in conservative households. The styling might be a little bit modern, but someone’s gotta usher pops into the 21st century. If he’s already conquered the iPhone, here’s his next opportunity.

Buy through Coach for $698.
