Fino Leatherware: For the Mr. Executive
Local leather goods brand, Fino Leatherware, fills in the gap for stylish and functional pieces for the big boss a.k.a Dad that’s between designer and department store prices. By using only the finest cowhide leathers coupled with excellent workmanship, their goods stand the test of time and trends, making it the perfect companion to a hardworking dad who is just as timeless and precious. Choose from basic neutral shades to more daring caramel, orange and even yellow as base for the bags and accessories ranging from wallets, passport holders, key chains and belts. Whatever corporate personality your big man is, Fino’s got him covered!
Beyond the Box: For the Tech Whiz
It’s no secret that boys will always be into techy goods and never really outgrow the love way into adulthood. So it’s only fitting that we don’t deny the Dad who’s into the latest gadgets and sound system, especially on his special day. Beyond The Box is the answer to all his gadget dreams: from the latest desk and laptops, cellphones, speakers, watches and even phone cases—a range of products in different price points for every budget. Up the cool factor even more by opting for more adventurous colors that add that fashion element to an everyday companion. The red iPhone which benefits HIV research is one, and matched with a sleek, wireless headphone (to cancel out rambunctious kiddos at the end of the day) is definitely an upgrade. Make dad’s day with a trip to the Box to make him feel like the hipster he secretly is.
Univers: For the Stylish Sartorialist
If your dad is the type who’s in tune with the latest in fashion, (and we mean the non-mainstream kind) a shopping spree at Univers in One Rockwell is the perfect present this Father’s Day. A trip to the trendy, industrial themed-space is like entering a very stylish closet: chockfull of under the radar collaboration (Gosha Rubchinskiy x Adidas) sneaks, quirky printed polo shirts, hard-to-find books and accessories with a few (grown-up) toys thrown in for good measure. Univers has brands exclusive to the boutique curated from Japan (Visvim shoes and garments), Europe (Heeley perfumes) and the U.S. for the incredibly discerning shopper, both men and women alike. What makes this particular purchase memorable is that he won’t bump into anyone with the same old pair of Stan Smiths while taking pride and holding on to a lasting gift he can use for years to come.
The Athlete’s Foot: For the Sports Fanatic
Sporty dads are now a dime a dozen and as more and more older men get into triathlons and all kinds of physical activities, sporting goods shops are having a heyday. The Athlete’s Foot has been catering to sports enthusiasts since the 1970s when it first opened in Pennsylvania, USA and continues the legacy with shops all over the world. It’s basically a one-stop shop housing multi-brand sneakers for sports and play, accessories like socks, t-shirts, even shoe cleaning kits for the OC. Their no-nonsense approach to merchandising is ideal for the male psyche who’s usually the grab-and-go-type of shopper and covers the big brand names like Nike, Adidas, and New Balance. What better way to make dad’s day than a new pair of kicks to use in his next race or special holiday with the family. Go get runnin’!
