Alright, Dads. It’s time to step up our fashion game. Since Father’s Day is just around the corner you know there’s plenty of photo ops, let’s run through a few wardrobe staples you need right now.
The Backyard Shirt
This short-sleeved shirt in Ventura Blue Hash Point from OuterKnown is a breath of fresh air and pairs with pants or shorts to suit whatever your day brings.
Indestructible Flannel shirts
Iconic, breathable, and makes you look like you could handle any adventure. A good quality flannel shirt over a soft t-shirt will keep you insulated against the elements, the commute, coffee run, or sudden bear attack! Whether buttoned up for more formal occasions or undone as a windbreaker, a flannel layer goes with everything.
Sustainable, Comfy, and Stretchy Jeans
Weekend-ready or pair with your favourite shirt and you’re good-to-go. A comfortable pair of jeans will last for years if you care for them and are even more comfy over a pair of BN3TH. Wash on cold, hang to dry, keep going. This relaxed cut from DUER are always a go-to.
A Chore Coat
A Work Coat or Chore Jacket has been a staple since your Great-Gramps was building things with his bare hands and is another hard-wearing staple. They usually sit like a bomber jacket and sit at the belt line.
A Comfy Hoodie
We’re loving this Peru Embroidered Llama Hoodie from Tentree. The design is inspired by the llamas that helped the Canadian clothing brand plant 50,000 trees outside a small village in Peru. Buying this sustainably-made hoodie will help them plant more.
Men’s Leather Boots that Last Forever
Always stylish and just like you, they only get better with age. Good quality brown leather boots work for all but the hottest weather and make you look seriously cool. Invest in your footwear, your knees will thank you.
The Jack - in Natural Linen shirt
Timeless and looks great under a sweater, with shorts or jeans, this classic cut is flattering and will only get softer as you wear it. Roll up the sleeves to cool down or keep them cuffed for business time. “This new edition of The Jack offers the same rugged construction and handy features of its predecessors in a handsome, lightweight linen finish for peerless comfort all season long.” - TaylorStitch.com
Ready for Anything – Travel Shorts
These Layover Stretch Travel Shorts from Roark are your go-anywhere, do anything, reliable pair that are good-to-go all day, every day.
A Straw Hat
Keep the sun off your face and look damn cool doing it, with a Puerto Lopez from Goorin Bros. It’s a medium depth center dent crown fedora built on made from 100% toquilla straw.
The New Dad-Sneaker
Fresh Summer whites are iconic when paired with jeans and work well with shorts too, but the second they get dirty the whole outfit looks sloppy. Keep them clean and your socks dry by grabbing a pair of Men’s Weekend shoes from Vessi. They’re waterproof, comfortable, and they slip on so you can be up and out the door in seconds.
Of course, the key to starting each and every day in the best way possible is with a truly great pair of underwear.
