With another holiday before us, we can always count on the Accessories Council to weigh in on their favorite gifts. So incase you’re still pondering what to get Dad for Father’s Day, we’ll be doing guides all weeks (plus don’t forget to check out the awesome GIVEAWAY we currently have going on).
As for the Accessories Council, their Chairmen, Frank Zambrelli, along with fashion expert, Pamela Pekerman, presents their top gifts for Father’s Day at Gibson Guitar Studio in NYC. Here’s what made the cut:
1. Cellar Angels – The socially conscious win website offers information from the vineyard, food pairing and supports the charity partner of choice including the Ilya Pekerman Vasculitis Fund with every bottle purchase.
2. Auburn Jewelry Customizable Sterling Silver Cufflinks ($125 – $160) – Created by Samantha Levine, Auburn Jewelry handcrafts every piece of jewelry and their cufflinks are available in a variety of patterns — we’re particularly found of the monogram style!
3. Jack + Mulligan Dylan Dopp Kit ($70) – For any man that travels, a good Dopp Kit is a must for keeping your toiletries in one place. This one is crafted from water-repellent 18oz canvas with a waterproof nylon lining to protect the bag from any spills that may occur inside. Chocolate brown leather accents and antique brass hardware give it a dash of elegance.
4. Esquire Slim Fit Dress Shirt & Narrow Tie ($59.50 – $79.50) -The slim-fit shirt features non-iron cotton that will look as fresh at the end of the day as in the beginning & the luxurious silk neckties is everything dad needs for a day at the office or on his big day!
5. J. Fold Stone Collection Folding Card Carrier ($59.50) – The Stone Collection Folding Card Carrier features full grain vegetable tanned Italian leather card carrier features a slim silhouette and 4 card slots. It’s a classic carrier with a unique finish that’s very chic for the rustic-cool dad!
6. Ilori – Oliver Peoples Becket Sunglasses ($365) – The Becket style may be for men, immaculately constructed of beveled acetate, but it’s that size where the women in his life can steel it too (just saying). This sporty, yet chic and sharp design is a smart casual essential.
7. Vince Camuto Homme Eau de Toilette ($57-$70) -Inspired by the allure and relaxed sophistication of European lifestyle: the seduction of the Mediterranean Sea, adventures, clear blue skies and cool crisp breezes. To live, to travel, to explore and to relax under the Riviera sun – it’s a dream. And by dream I had to tell my sister it’s too masculine for her (we both love mens fragrances) and this ones a winner! The combination of pressed citron, juniper berry, iced gin, French lavender, warm musk, cools spruce and atlas cedar feels very fresh.
8. Dr. Scholl’s Jason Oxfords ($120) – You know if it’s Dr.Scholl’s comfort is implied, but who knew they made Oxfords? The Jason shoe feature a Velour suede upper, five eye lace-up front, soft cotton fabric lining, cushioning insole with Memory Fit(R) foam, EVA midsole, & a traction outsole. Comfort and style, two thumbs up.
9. David & Young Men’s Fedora ($24-$40) – The D&Y Spring Men’s Collection embodies an all American style with a twist of old world fashions — at affordable prices. You will find a broad range of prints from camo and anchors to preppy plaids and bold stripes. Lightweight and comfortable this had is made of alinen/cotton blends, and raffia paper!
10. Vasi Moda Silk Pocket Square ($105) – Handcrafted in Como, Italy — which is the ‘it’ place for prints, the “B” Square is composed of 12 different patterns each with the same precise detail, vibrant colors and artistic elements of the signature VASI scarf line. It’s 16 inch square, made with the highest silk quality available with a hand sewn rolled hem. For the more colorful dad, add a pop of color to the pocket of his suit.
11. Soxxy Nighthawk Travel Compression Socks ($35) – Sarah created SoxxyAir while recovering from knee surgery when her doctor encouraged her to wear compression sox to help prevent blood clots, especially when flying. Frustrated with the lack of style, colors and designs available in compression sox, she took matters into her own hands and created Soxxy. The socks increases circulation, reduces jet lag, swelling, muscle soreness and helps decrease the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
