We love our dads--we do. And while we may never understand their quirks (wearing shower shoes to family functions; considering barbecue to be a contact sport), it?s undeniable that father knows best.
That said, dads definitely need a little help in the presentation department (see shower shoes). So with Father?s Day approaching, we?re suggesting a few subtle hints in the form of gifts from local retailers:
For the Life of the Party White Wing Label makes fashionable yet thoroughly masculine luggage. Our favorite is the Cooler bag ($205), which is designed to carry up to ten beverages. Soft-sided and 100 percent leakproof, it will make Dad the coolest beer-toting man this side of the Brazos.
For the Businessman Disheveled is a look best worn by male models and Brad Pitt. So Dad will appreciate a wrinkle-free (you never have to iron it!), breathable dress shirt by Mizzen + Main. We like the DeWitt ($105)--a riff on the standard white button-down but with a touch of texture.
For Paul Bunyan Impersonators Jack Black?s coveted Beard Lube ($33 for a 16-ounce bottle) is an all-in-one face primer, shaving cream and moisturizer that?ll have fathers shearing their beards.
