Shopping for Father’s Day can be a exercise in exasperation, particularly if your dad responds to your probing questions with a vague “I don’t know what I want,” but still ends up dissatisfied with his gift. As absurd as it seems, it can be surprisingly difficult to pinpoint your father’s personal style, especially if you rarely see him out of his regimented work ensemble. To ease your frustrations, HBX has put together a classic summer ensemble that no dad can disapprove of.
These smart casual pieces are likely to be crowd pleasers for all fathers. Starting from the top, the oxford shirt from Parisian label Maison Kitsune is a well-tailored basic versatile across occasions, with the fox logo in Kitsune’s signature tricolor palette lending the garment a quirky touch. The Norse Projects chino pants, crafted from ultra-soft lightweight cotton twill, are also a relaxed addition to dad’s summer wardrobe. To top things off is a navy blazer from Japanese workwear label BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS, constructed from textured wool and cotton blend for that laidback summer look. Of course, no ensemble is complete without accessories. Thom Browne has released some sophisticated standouts this season, including this grosgrain wool twill necktie and matching tie bar in French red, white and blue coloring. As a streetwear retailer, we at HBX feel strongly that outfitting your feet is the most important part of the daily routine. Your dad won’t be at a loss for minimalist but comfortable footwear this summer, not with these sleek low-tops from A.P.C. crafted from optic white calfskin leather. And just like that, your gifting is sorted from head to toe.
