The Barneys Team Picks Their Favorite Father’s Day Gifts

Pop quiz: what are you getting Dad for Father’s Day? If your answer is one of the following…

A. No clue
B. When is that again?
C. Umm… a card?

…then you need to take a cue from the Barneys team. Below, their top picks for Father’s Day (aka this Sunday).

It’s time to introduce Dad to the summer scarf. Older dudes hate draughts and excessive air-conditioning. Et voila! The summer scarf is the new David Niven ascot!

*     *     *

My husband will get something from Salvatore Piccolo. The henley dress shirts are the best for the summer. And for my father, a pair of Tod’s drivers in a bright color.

No dad would be disappointed by Oliver Peoples’ Braverman 55 sunglasses, Balenciaga’s arena squash duffle or the Lord Snowdon/Acne Studios book, Snowdon Blue, with David Bowie on the cover…such a classic.

*     *     *

My kids will be away for Father’s Day so David and I will have a very romantic day together, probably consisting of a late lunch with a bottle (or two) of rosé and going to some galleries. We will be pre-ordering him these amazing XO swim trunks by Orlebar Brown that have a photographic surf print on them—they’ll to go perfectly with a new surfboard!

*     *     *

I plan to spend Fathers Day with my “son” Jake at the beach in Long Island. I will be tossing him some new treats and he will be wearing his Mungo & Maud rope dog collar.

*     *     *

My dad is always trekking around Tokyo by bus, subway and bicycle. He can do it in style and comfort with this lightweight Rag & Bone backpack.

*     *     *

Although my brother is a father of three amazing boys, he has a soft spot for their new chocolate lab, Baron. Man’s best friend is important to Dad on Father’s Day; this year he’ll receive a pretzel chew toy, exclusively ours.
