Help Dad Look Great From Head to Toe

Today we are addressing the whole dad, top to toe. Women are most often the subject of makeover talk, but I find that men are super fun makeover projects too. What better way to show your love than to steer the Dad in your life to a better haircut (finally!), or the right pair of shoes? It is the little things that make the difference sometimes. And sometimes the dad in your life needs a complete overhaul! We’ve provided you with tips for all of the essentials this Father’s Day. Happy shopping!


A Haircut from Grooming Lounge


Grooming Lounge Haircut Gift Card, $66

A haircut at Grooming Lounge is not just a haircut. He will be treated to hot towels for his face and a scalp massage. This place is basically like a trip to the salon for men afraid of the salon.



Men Can Accessorize Too


Floral Lapel Pin in Sky Blue Geo Scope, $8.00

Does Dad already love to accessorize? If he is ready to move beyond the pocket square, introduce him to the Floral Lapel Pin from Tie Bar. Throw in a few new, fresh cotton pocket squares for summer while you are there.



A Custom Shirt from J. Hilburn


J. Hilburn White/Blue Gingham Custom Shirt, $119

Every man looks better in a custom shirt. Just saying. J. Hilburn, voted Best Custom Shirt by Esquire in 2013, is offering limited edition Father’s Day monograms right now. Contact my local rep if you are interested in moving beyond the standard tie gift for Father’s Day and she will come to your home or office to take measurements.



A Watch from Huckberry


Daniel Wellington Classic St. Mawes Watch, $228.98

If you’re completely stumped on what to get for Father’s Day, your first stop should be Huckberry. They describe themselves as “your favorite store, your grandpa’s favorite store, and your favorite magazine all rolled into one.” Mr. Real Life Style got a watch from Huckberry for our Anniversary and is now pretty obsessed with the entire site. Another great perk is the range of price points on the site. You have to be logged in to browse (it is so worth it!). Sign up through this link and you’ll receive a $10 credit to your account.



Summer Weight Pants from Bonobos


Bonobos Summer Weight Chinos, $98

Bonobos pants are loved by men of all shapes and sizes. They come in 3 different fits, 4 different lengths, and a ton of different colors. If he’s not sure of his size, he can get fitted at a guideshop in a matter of minutes without ever having to dig through stock to find his size. Their D.C. area guideshops are located in Montgomery Mall, Bethesda Row, and Georgetown and their N.Y.C guideshops are in Flatiron and Soho. P.S. They make all men’s behinds look awesome!



Dress Socks from Corgi


Corgi Lightweight Pattern Socks in Navy Big Wheeler, $28

Socks are the new tie, did you know? J.Crew stocks the most amazing patterned socks by Corgi. Mermaids, monkeys, and emojis galore! Have fun with this one. We LOVE patterned socks in my house.



A New Pair of Shoes from Cole Haan


Cole Haan Preston Wholecut Oxford, $328

Even the well-dressed man can falter when it comes to shoes. Cole Haan makes it easy; the shoes are comfy and good-looking. A pair of polished tan shoes will make his boring navy suit pop and add a spring in his step. Happy Father’s Day!
