A Well Dressed Man

Whether you’re shopping for a dapper dad (or whatever brother / father of your kids / grandpa / in-law of your choice) or a guy that could simply use a style infusion, today’s gift ideas are all about stylish options for the men in your life…with plenty o’ time to pick up a pressie or two before Father’s Day! And with that…

Great Gatsby Collection

The Great Gatsby Collection @ Brooks Brothers
One of the most-talked about components of Baz Luhrman’s glittering, fantastical adaptation of The Great Gatsby is the fashion, and for once, it’s not the women’s styles that has tongues-a-wagging. Gatsby is a bit of a showboater when it comes to clothing, and don’t be surprised to see a trickle down effect into the styles guys don for more formal occasions in particular. Brooks Brothers is here to actually lend a helping hand, with their limited edition line-up of dress shirts, trousers, suits, shoes and accessories – including a particularly notable re-imagining of Gatsby’s pink suit. Prices are well, pricy, but if you want to gift a guy something special, this is definitely one way to do it.

Wheelmen & Co Bags

Wheelmen & Co Bags – $85+
As much as guys love to make fun of us ladies for toting around jumbo purses, find me a guy that wouldn’t mind a smart bag to tote his belongings to the office or on a plane – whether it’s notepads and lunch or a laptop and change of clothes for the gym. Wheelmen & Co make some of the nicest, smartest bags around – right in the US of A of course. Their duffles, backpacks, and messenger bags combine rugged manly fabrics and colours with luxe details like leather straps and buttery soft, colourful linings. Plus the price point makes them pretty affordable across the board (they also have some options for electronics cases at a lower price).

FEIT Shoes

FEIT Shoes – $425+
What’s handmade, limited-edition, and stamped accordingly? These beautiful shoes from FEIT, that’s what. If you peruse their collection you’ll see numbers under each style indicating how many they’ll make, and how many are left, to give you an idea of how exclusive these boots, shoes and loafers really are (most pairs have only 59 mates). I like the idea of splurging on a special pair of footwear for guys for say, a wedding or vow renewal ceremony. He’ll not only look sharp on the big day, he’ll have a seriously well-made pair of shoes to last him for years to come.
Sunpocket Folding SunglassesSunpocket Folding Sunglasses – $89+
If your guy is constantly on the go, Sunpocket’s folding sunglasses may be just the ticket to keep relief from the sun close at hand. Available in dozens of unisex styles – from classic tortiseshell to vibrant brights – these nifty glasses are crazy durable yet fold in two places so they’re easily tucked away without major pocket bulge issues. If you don’t trust the man in your life to keep ’em protected, shell out for a leather case to keep them free from scratches and crushing.

Killigrew Fashion

Killigrew Tees – $52+
Behold the humble yet mighty tee-shirt. When put into the right hands, it can not only make your guy look sharp, but actually help him make a personal style statement. That’s why I love Canadian brand Killigrew created by mother & son duo Cleo and Mitchell Darragh. The unique iconography of their crow & crown emblem coupled with their luxe choice of fabrics – supremely soft, pill-resistant, organic Peruvian Pima Cotton anyone? – makes for a line-up of classic polos and tailored graphic tees that will slip nicely into any man’s wardrobe…although as fair warning, they’ll also quickly become his favourites. Available online from Killigrew directly or at some of the nation’s most discerning menswear shops.

Killigrew King Tee

Good news for one lucky guy (or gal who’s in need of a gift). I’ve got a Killigrew ‘King’ tee valued at $68 to give away!
