“Everyone needs a good summer straw hat, and few are better than Eric Javits. They’re timeless but with a modern edge and can be worn casually or with a light suit to fit into any occasion.”

“My father is a classical-music enthusiast, so I grew up listening to Bach and Mozart at home. Interestingly, he prefers to enjoy his favorite composers in the comfort of his house rather than sitting through performances in concert halls. These sleek Devialet speakers are the perfect gift for him. The magnificent sound quality eliminates distortion and background noise to deliver exquisite richness and clarity in tone.”

“My father has been a fan of the Stan Smith for as long as I can remember, so these new Sole Series Adidas are the perfect new addition for his growing collection.”

“This fun collaboration between Hotsox and Art Production Fund features the exclusive designs of artists Derrick Adams, Barbara Kruger, Deborah Kass, and Rob Pruitt. The artsy socks make the perfect gift for the dapper dad who is a collector at heart. Plus, a portion of the proceeds goes to Art Production Fund’s dedication to commissioning and producing public art projects.”

“The Carmina shoe is a good option. It is a classic and made with fine leather. Any dad will appreciate having this dressy shoe option for the proper occasion.”

“Ricardo, my husband, would love some stylish sneakers to update his wardrobe, as he pretty much wears trainers every day whether for work, exercise, or going out. I think I’ll go with the pair from New Balance.”

“On Father’s Day this year, I’ll be in Nantucket with my dad. I’ll gift him these Mr. Leight sunglasses to wear as he enjoys his favorite pastime: sitting on the deck doing a crossword puzzle with a glass of white wine.”

“My father is one of the most intelligent people I know—he can divulge the history of every country in the world and can learn a language just by reading through its dictionary. Growing up, we spent Saturdays together poring through an atlas, as he’d share with me tidbits of his global wisdom. For Father’s Day, I would love to gift him this Il Bisonte tote bag so he can travel the world he knows so well in style.”

“I’m going to give my dad this Isaia shirt, but it’s really a gift for my mom, who is always complaining that he has no nice, perfect-fit shirts to wear out to dinner in Maine. This guarantees that he’ll be looking sharp, which will make my mother very happy.”
