HERE’S TO YOU, DAD
finding the perfect gift

Have you selected the perfect gift for Dad? Sure it’s a tough decision, but with only five days remaining until Father’s Day, you best get a move on! Our friends at Barneys thought that it helpful to classify three “types” to help you hone in on the ideal present. These selections and many more are just a click away at www.barneys.com. Given the date, be sure to request an overnight delivery.

THE ZADDY DAD

Above top: SAINT LAURENT Leather-Trimmed Virgin Wool Bomber Jacket $2,550, MASTERMIND JAPAN Logo-Bandana-Print Silk Bowling Shirt $1,910, KIRK ORIGINALS Harris Sunglasses $550, RIZZOLI The American Bar: The ARTistry of Mixing Drinks $30, SISLEY-PARIS Sisleÿum for men1.7 oz. $275.

Attractive and always fashionable, this man ages like a fine wine and gets away with dressing far younger than his salt-and-pepper hair would indicate. That begs the question: What sort of youth potion did he take, and is it genetic? Gosh, I hope so.

THE STRAIGHT-LACED DAD

Above top: BOTTEGA VENETA Intrecciato Billfold $460, DEAKIN & FRANCIS Enamel & Silver Golf Ball Cufflinks $525, RAY-BAN The Colonel Sunglasses $180, FIORONI Contrast-Tipped Cotton-Cashmere Polo Shirt $695. Bottom: ALEX MILL Workers’ Cotton Jacket $125, BARNEYS NEW YORK New Era XO Cotton Baseball Cap $65, REEBOK Men’s Club C85 Leather Low-Top Sneakers $70, FIORONI Contrast-Tipped Cotton-Cashmere Polo Shirt $695, BRIC’S Life Holdall 22” Duffel $495.

He’s a man of simple pleasures – golf, light beer, his financial planning career, to name them all. He might not “get down” with pop culture or know the latest trends, but he’s wise and most likely to teach you the valuable lessons of life, like saving for your “golden years.” 

THE HYPE DAD

Above top: GIVENCHY Icarus-Logo Cotton French Terry Hoodie $1,065, A-COLD WALL Logo Cotton Mid-Calf Socks $65. Middle: STONE ISLAND Cotton Twill Bucket Hat $170, VALENTINO Camouflage-Jacquard Denim Cargo Pants $1,250, BALENCIAGA Everyday Leather Belt Bag $1,250, BALENCIAGA Everyday Key Chain $275, BOY SMELLS KUSH Candle $32. Bottom: GESTALTEN The Incomplete Highsnobiety Guide to Street Fashion and Culture $60, ADDIDAS X RAF SIMONS Men’s Ozweego Sneakers $400.

This man considers camping out for the next sneaker drop as family bonding time. He knows what he wants and, no matter the level of difficulty, will go to great lengths to get it. Sure he doesn’t fit the “conventional” dad mold, but when the grails are this good, who cares?
