Dad's Day

Finds perfect for the cool dad in your life

Father's Day arrives this weekend and we've spotted a handful of cool local finds that will cover any dad on your list - from the avid hunter to the reader and a quirky option of the unexpected.

For the dad that loves the thrill of the hunt, try a pair of duck decked boxers by Southern Marsh at Brother's on the Boulevard. While you're there they have quite the selection of t-shirts and collared ones as well by the beloved brand.

For a gift that's masculine (but so beautifully done you won't mind hanging it on the wall) check out the stunning oars from Gentries Supply Co. These puppies are so lovely even a dad that doesn't fare that well in the water could appreciate them.

At kiki there are some great dad-friendly options from cool masculine leather bags to a collection of books for every father from food lovers devoted to boudin to history buffs that can appreciate the beautiful photos in John Slaughter's Grand Coteau book. While you're there check out the selection of fragrances as well. We're crushing most seriously on Creed's Green Irish Tweed at the moment.

Over at Maven Menswear there are the ever fun Happy Socks for the quirky dads and for any dad you'd like to get a bit more hip try one of their solewood wallets - the perfect marriage of function and style.
