Believe it or not, just because your dad might have an antiqued sense of style doesn’t mean you can’t help the old man get back into the swing of things this Father’s Day – especially if foundational style elements are already present. Thus, the Dapper Dad look could be one to follow through with this year. Thankfully we have you covered with a handful of essential picks to choose from.

Our suggestion? Pair a modern yet classic dress shirt with a reliable timepiece, or a Stetson hat with a large carryall bag from an American legacy brand. Any way you slice it, there’s a solid gift idea here for stylish dads out there of all preferences. And depending on his personal aesthetic – be it a pocket knife-wielding gentleman or artsy notetaker in need of a sleek and reliable pen – we’re convinced the old man would consider any one of these style-forward picks a welcomed gift this year.

Ledbury Edmunton Shirt

Let’s start with the basics. This dress shirt from Ledbury is constructed of a lightweight and breathable linen-cotton blend that’s both casual enough for the weekend barbecue yet formal enough for the workweek. Each Ledbury Edmunton Dress Shirt also features their Spread collar for a unique look along with single barrel cuffs and reinforced buttons for durability.

Fulton & Roark Shampoo + Body Wash

From the same dependable brand that brought you their solid cologne comes another subtle yet masculine addition to the lineup. This time Fulton & Roark pulled out all the stops to formulate this 2-in-1 shampoo + body wash with Rosemary, B5, and caffeine. A shower essential without a doubt.
