When it comes to finding the perfect gift for Father’s Day, it can be a difficult search. Finding the gift of fashion can be easier if you take your dad’s interests into account. Here are a few suggestions on Father’s Day gifts for the sporty dad.
For Spring/Summer 2014, Americana is hot in the fashion world. For a great fitting top, take a look at the Esquire 20 Nike Jersey that comes in a bold red, white, and blue striping with the Nike insignia and the US soccer decal. The fabric is lightweight, the theme is patriotic, and the colors will compliment any summer outfit. You can shop for this and shirts like this at www.macys.com and www.nike.com.
Next, what father doesn’t love a great watch? This is a Michael Kors Dylan sports watch with a navy face, bright white number markers, chronograph styling, and a durable silicone rubber band. It is the kind of watch that can take dad from coaching at the Little League field to the beach. This particular style can be found at www.michaelkors.com and www.nordstroms.com.
If your dad is the kind of guy who likes simple, pull-on style shorts for his athletic activities or leisure time, then check out the Under Armour Mirage 8 Men’s Sport Shorts that have a reinforced waistband, a mid-thigh length, stretchy fabric for comfort, and comes in a host of basic and bright colors. These shorts can be found for dad at Lord & Taylor and also at www.underarmour.com.
For the gift of a summer sneaker for your dad, Puma has the Cabana Mesh Sport Retro Sneaker that brings back a little of the vintage sneaker look in its styling. The leather and mesh will keep them breathable and the colors will mix well in any wardrobe. You can find these at www.dsw.com.
Lastly, if dad has a favorite sports team, why not get him a baseball cap for Father’s Day that will keep his head protected on a hot summer day? At www.lids.com, they have a huge selection of team hats that dad would be proud to wear and you would be happy to give to him.
Dads. Some of us are lucky to have one, some of us might have been better off without one around. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, there are all kinds of dads and a lot of them probably expect a decent gift this year for contributing to your creation. Here’s a quick guide to buying the quintessential nice Father’s Day gift, the watch, with some advice for selecting according to the type of father:
The Sporty Dad: The used Rolex Submariner, the most classic (and most popular) Rolex on the market, is always a crowd pleaser. This watch can be worn everyday and paired with any ensemble. Often said to be a “safe investment” the Submariner is known to hold its value more than any other Rolex model, which may have something to do with the fact that when properly cared for, the Submariner can last a lifetime.
The Need for Speed Dad: Made famous for race car drivers, the used Rolex Daytona is a watch that will make you stop in your tracks! With it’s oversized face, and chronograph technology, this is a piece for a major watch fan. Seen mostly on celebrities, the Daytona is the kind of watch that provides just the right amount of flash with the perfect balance of style. If the Dad in your life loves historically rich and well-crafted watches- then this would be the watch for him.
The Traveling Dad: Also known as the “pilot watch” the used Rolex GMT Master II is perfect from the dad who can never seem to get his time zone straight. The GMT Master II has evolved into a major hit for Rolex, now offered with different bezel inserts and various metals to surely make your Dad’s day!
The “Collector” Dad: The used Rolex Milguass has very special elements to it’s crafting that make it one of the most sought after luxury watches in the world. The famous lightning second hand harkens to the original purpose of the Milguass and its anti-magnetic qualities. If your dad loves the unusual and the rare then the Milguass is the Rolex for him!
