In honor of Father’s Day, this month we wanted to dedicate our box to all those Dads out there. We put together some classic prints and patterns that you remember your old man wearing growing up, and added a little modern twist to them. It’s the perfect Father’s Day (or belated Father’s Day) Gift 🙂
Let’s talk plaid. Not just any plaid but Black Lapel’s custom blue and yellow silk plaid tie that they designed just for you. Ideal for any occasion. Pair it up with a bright white shirt and gray or navy jacket. This is a staple pattern and color combo that will never go out of style. If you’re looking to buy a new suit, Black Lapel has a great and affordable collection of direct-to-consumer tailored clothing.
We decided to shake things up with Ainsley & Troupe to create a fun, mini paisley pocket square in the perfect Summer color. We kept it a bit subtle since paisley can tend to get loud with the larger, more colorful prints. Not here. We kept it classy and made sure it matched your tie nicely.
This unique wooden tie clip was manufactured locally in Minnesota just for you. Each cut of wood is unique so no one else will have the exact same piece or color as you. Although Dad probably never rocked a wooden tie clip back in his day, we thought this would be a great way to introduce him to something a bit more modern. The boys at Woodchuck USA are making a difference by planting a tree with every purchase made. If you want to help out, be sure to check out their site!
To complement the tie, here’s a super comfy pair of our SPREZZA triple stripe socks (seriously… they’re soft af). Dressed up or down, these bad boys will be a great addition to your rotation and can be worn all year round. We’re dropping a new line of funky socks real soon, so get ready.
Dappered Man, a New York City fashion agency, gave us this lovely yellow lapel flower to not only round out the tie and pocket square, but to add that extra pop to your ensemble. If you’re ever looking for that little something to add a little character to that Summer work event you’re going to, just pin it right on.
Staying fresh in the Summer is key. It will be a hot one this year and hopefully you have some fun travel plans or a beach house. Keep this Fulton & Roark travel-sized bar of soap in your Dopp kit so you can stay squeaky clean and fresh. It may be one of the better soaps we’ve tried and it smells fantastic (in a manly way of course).
