Father's day is right around the corner and we’re feeling like putting in that extra effort to bring some added joy and appreciation to the not-so-jolly year that 2020 has been thus far. We believe in the importance of personal and considerate gifting. While many men often self-identify as “simple creatures”, pinpointing the perfect can be unexpectedly difficult. To ease the challenge of pleasing an eternally grateful and appreciative father/husband/partner, we’ve carefully curated a Father’s Day gift guide on this week’s Editorial, helping you avoid the perennially redundant pitfalls of a boring necktie and or funky sock gag gift. Impress the man in your life with something they will truly want, love and wear - maybe it’s something they never knew they needed.

Given the current climate, many of us are living in our go-to sweat pants and favorite lounge pieces. It seems apropos to give the gift of fluffy fleece. You truly can't go wrong with some classic lounge staples. Show dad how to cozy up in style with Mitchell Evan's Sherpa Drop Shoulder Hoodie in Black. Mitchell Evan has taken what every man loves in a basic hoodie and elevated it by cutting it in a buttery-soft cotton/micro modal sherpa fabrication. It's so comfy, we guarantee he won't want to take it off. For the expert relaxer who is daring enough for an injection of print, we love the Campus Jogger in Camo by Alternative Apparel. This eco and budget-friendly classic sweatpant is cut in the brand's ultra drapey burnout french terry featuring ribbed ankle detail, natural/adjustable drawstring closure, and a stylized back yoke pocket. Round out his “at home” outfit, with a fan favorite from Italian shoe brand, Golden Goose. For that extra special man who deserves to be spoiled to the nines, the Slide in Black Crack with White Star is the perfect grab and go high top. These city slicking sneakers encompass “cool” easy access side zippers and overt destruction and distress. This high top sneaker is elevated with tonal accents and pops of yellow. We love the combination of crackled leather paired with the suede tongue and signature side swoosh.
With the progressive lifting of the “Stay Home” orders across the country, many of us are preparing for summer vacations and getaways that seemed like a distant dream a few months ago.

This minimalistic style is cut in a 4-way stretch and quick dry fabrication, making it the ultimate “swim and gym” short, perfect for the sporty guy. If he's already covered in the swimsuit department but is still in need of a new summer short, we think that the Clifton Short in Dark Night by CLOSED is perfect. These sophisticated shorts are made from a premium yarn-dyed Italian cotton fabric with a woven check pattern, giving the tonal appearance of dimension. Hook him up with an entire outfit with Handvaerk's HW Pocket Tee in Steel Grey. This simple yet elevated pocket tee is constructed from a heavy-weight jersey fabrication created from combed Peruvian cotton. The impeccable craftsmanship, quality, and clean minimalist aesthetic make this piece a dependable wardrobe staple. Show him how to layer stylishly by gifting him the Cotton Fine Knit Sweater in Fading Indigo also from German label, CLOSED. This ultra-fine 16 gauge knit pullover is made from the softest of premium cotton. He'll be thanking you for stepping up his wardrobe game. For the ultimate "cool-dad", Rag and Bone's Definitive Jean Jacket in Throop is a shop favorite that you cannot go wrong with. This upgraded denim jacket features an easy medium blue indigo wash, angular accent stitching at the placket, and Rag and Bone signature donut shanks - he'll be reaching for this wardrobe staple every day. If you're looking for a slightly sartorial piece of outerwear, he'll love the Italian Fabric Jacket in Dark Night by CLOSED. Featured in a rich navy coloration, this bomber style jacket is made from an Italian cotton mix with a very fine twill structure and water-repellant finish, perfect to take from day to night. Lined with premium chambray fabric, this piece is elevated with a standing color with asymmetrical button detailing and classic rib trim finishings.
