As most dads age, their wardrobes tend to devolve into heaps of “comfortable” crap you’d never borrow. But we can’t blame ’em. They’ve probably been out of the game for a while and don’t know quite know they’re doing. Thankfully, these gifts can help.
Function Pants (Konus, $140): Dads don’t get out as much as they once did. But just because he’s kicking it at home doesn’t mean he shouldn’t look good doing it. These track pants are equal parts comfortable and cool.
Bishop Tan Driftwood Sneaker (Bedstu, $220): Remember that the key is to make him look and feel young again. These distressed leather sneakers are the perfect marriage of the classic oxford and a rubber-soled casual sneaker, so he won’t look like he’s trying too hard.
London Vinyl Print Swimshort (Ben Sherman, $44): Most dads like old stuff, like vinyl collections. If your dad is one of them, he’ll probably dig these swim trunks, too.
Active Watch (Philip Stein, $600): Because he probably never spends money on himself, treat dad to this timepiece from Philip Stein, which features Natural Frequency Technology proven to reduce stress, aid sleep and increase overall wellness.
Adrecia Sandals (Call It Spring, $35): For the fathers who want to hit the beach this summer, Call It Spring’s lightweight sandals will cushion their feet during all the back and forth carrying chairs and coolers from the car—probably without help.
Calfskin Eyeglass Case (John Varvatos, $488): This calfskin case with genuine crocodile skin accents is both a sophisticated and practical gift for dads with glasses or sunglasses they always scratch up.
Newport Sunglasses (Steven Alan, $165): Maybe Dad needs a new pair of shades to keep in his new case. These dark tortoise frames with antique gold mix influences from New York and Tokyo, two huge style capitals. And the rectangular frames are retro-inspired to bring him back to his heyday.
Fan Pack Cord Tacos (This is Ground, $40): There’s nothing more fitting to get the man, the myth, the legend than cord tacos that celebrate his own legends, from Bill (Murray) to (David) Bowie.
