Gift Guide: Father’s Day

Umberto Eco perfectly captured fathers when he said, “I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren’t trying to teach us anything.”
Your father is the person you look up to and aspire to be like. The person whose footsteps you want to walk in. So this Father’s Day, express your love and gratitude towards your father on a stylish note.  Don’t just go down the conventional card and bouquet route. Pick something that your father will appreciate for a long time.

Fabulous Formals

What we wear often casts a lasting impression of us. Help your father dress to impress in the boardroom in a classic, slim-fit white shirt with crisp, black formal trousers. Accessories add tons of chutzpah to a good outfit. Every man deserves a watch that complements his personality well. Hunt for a good-looking and sophisticated watch that is ideal for him. When it comes to shoes, you can’t go wrong with a pair of black or brown leather ones. A matching satchel for his office workload is a fabulous idea. And for a flawless finish, choose from a vast range of classic aviators that combat the fickle weather and look uber cool.

Perfect for a Party

If your father loves to attend social functions and events, then step in as a stylist for him. Invest in a cool, striped black shirt and flattering slim-fit trousers to match. Add a touch of sophistication to this dapper ensemble with cufflinks. A smart leather belt also makes for a great gift; look for one that flatters most outfits and fits well. A good luxury is a gift that never fails to work its charm. And a great occasion calls for a fragrant perfume. Depending on your father’s tastes, choose from a range of fresh and dewy to masculine and musky.

Casually Cool

Assist your dad to go casual with élan! Polo shirts are perfect because they manage that seamless balance between being casual and classy with ease. Available in a plethora of styles and colours, they go fantastically with khakis, chinos and jeans. Complete the look with moccasins or boat shoes; the brighter the better. A sporty, luxury watch makes for a stylish accessory as does a perfume that compliments your father’s tastes.

So whatever you decide, make sure you put in a lot of thought into your gift and pick something dapper for him at Pantaloons. After all, your father deserves the best!
