No matter how grown up you may be, your dad will always be there for you. With Father’s Day on June 19, it’s time to start putting some real thought into what you will be getting for him as a show of love.

What we have below are some suggestions for fathers who have a more discerning taste. Whether it is something practical like a watch or bag, or a grooming product that will help him look his best, find something for dad here. He deserves it.

 


Aesop’s latest addition to its range of shaving accessories and formulations is a double-edge razor handmade by English craftsmen. Meticulously made, the handle and chrome-plated blade head are perfectly weighted to facilitate an immaculate shave.

The handle features a brass collar, hand-polished to a mirror finish and triple-plated with copper, nickel and chrome. It even has a blade head crafted from die-cast Zamak, protected by scratch-resistant chrome plating.


The Dior Homme Autumn 2016 collection is said to unveil a whole new level of luxury created by its artistic director, Kris Van Assche. In a colour palette bringing together blue, gold and khaki, the aesthetic speaks of a sporty yet formal look.

Accessories for the season are equally covetable. A shopper bag with a distinctive contrasting band and leather corners? Yes! Derby shoes with rubber soles? A navy blue wallet featuring the season’s iconic print? Double yes!


The Reverso Tribute Calendar is clearly intended for those who can appreciate both horological content and aesthetic. Its different faces are inspired by original models that exist as an integral part of the Jaeger-LeCoultre heritage.

On one side it displays a traditional function – a complete calendar – and on the other, the exclusive Reverso Duo function. The graphic narrative on the front highlights a moon-phase display, which is then echoed on the back with a day/night indicator.


These days, everyone knows that an emoji speaks louder than words. Maybe it’s time that all fathers learn the lingo. Enter Versace’s emoji T-shirts – indeed a great way to introduce dad to modern “speak”.

The luxury brand’s iconic Medusa motif is depicted as a smiley face on these designs. They offer a range of different playful expressions and styles, with suitably muted colours of either black or white.


The Essenze collection of fragrances by Ermenegildo Zegna is both elegant and understated. Each different scent comes packaged in a modern glass bottle, featuring a custom fabric label with a corresponding coloured border.

Italian Bergamot for example, is supported by the warmth of neroli, rosemary and vetiver. While Sicilian Mandarin features notes of mandarin oil, spearmint, petitgrain and moss, Indonesian Oud denotes hints of rare oud wood, rose, amber and patchouli.


You know what most fathers need? Dad glasses. Well, maybe a pair of cool shades would probably do better for the more sporty dads out there. That said, any of these gorgeous designs will definitely be a welcome upgrade.

From funky frames with exquisite patterns to on-trend thick rimmed or round folding ones, each provides quality and comfort. Choose from Giorgio Armani, Dolce&Gabbana, Ray-Ban, Prada, Emporio Armani and more.
