Make him look manly at Flying Point Poor Dad. Finding a great-fitting swimsuit isn?t as easy for him as it is for us. Thankfully, NYC-based Saltbox USA has an amazing line of board shorts ($76) that strike the balance between a slim fit and a manly silhouette (not an easy task).

Make him smell like Hugh Jackman Australian brand Aesop?s newly opened shop in East Hampton is filled with items that are heavenly smelling and smartly packaged.
