Father’s Day Pt 2. – SS Pt. XXIII

June 12, 2017

This is your daily reminder that Father’s Day is coming up quick. This Sunday to be exact. Still trying to find something as cool as the dad in your life is? We have a couple more options for you to browse through to make this Sunday even better.

For the Easy going Dad who is always looking forward to his next weekend relaxation this look might be right up his alley. The Raf Simons X Fred Perry Pique Polo can be whatever he needs it to be. This version of the classic Fred Perry polo has a twist of Raf Simons’ modern vision. The slim cut and simple colours make patterns a good pairing option, like the Bather Birds Swim Trunk. These made in Canada bathing suits don’t have a liner, making their transition to shorts more than possible.


This look is grab and go friendly, thanks to the Adidas Adilette Sandal. A longtime staple of the brand with three stripes, featuring a prime knit upper. The Prowler Duffle bag is an ideal weekender bag keeping a clean look with durability in mind, thanks to the ballistic nylon construction.


For the Dad who isn’t afraid of a pop of colour in an outfit, something from this look might be more his speed. The Universal Works Baker Overshirt is a great summer layering option. It can keep Dad looking classically cool, without adding too much weight on the hotter days. It can be worn with jeans or trousers, like the French Work Pant by orSlow. These have a straight cut, keeping the look feeling loose and easygoing.


To get a little more Summery, Dad can go with a bright tee like the La Panoplie Fleck in pink. You can never have enough nice, slim fitting, cotton t-shirts. This one shouldn’t be overlooked. Up top he can go with the Norse Projects Reversible Poplin Bucket Hat. Pink for flavour on one side, and tonal grey on the other.


For the man who likes keeping it classy, there is a look like this. The Universal Works Suit Jacket uses traditional blazer styling with an unstructured shape and patch pocketing to keep it casual. Underneath, the United SS is a comfortable shirting option that dresses this jacket up a touch. These slim fitting shirts are made in Canada that utilize smaller detailed patterns.


To accessorize, the Filson Original Briefcase is as timeless as one could want. The Seattle based outdoor company has long been producing high quality pieces for the rugged man. This briefcase silhouette was one of the very first luggage options they put into production, and it’s still going strong.

Don’t forget a clean pair of summer kicks. The Adidas by wings + horns Campus is a different take on a shoe that’s also been around for quite a while. Canadian w+h puts their stamp on the Campus by comprising the upper completely out of one piece leather in a beautiful navy blue. Tuck the Norse Projects Bjarki socks in there for a tonal touch.

Dad’s are notorious for being loyal to their wallets. Those things can go years without replacing. If you’ve been hinting at a new look for what goes in Dad’s back pocket, the Tanner Goods Utility Bifold is hard to beat. The brand new Cobalt blue colour also makes sure he knows exactly which one is his when it’s sitting on the table. It’s also available in a card holder, and zip wallet.



Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there!
