Bonobos x Dads Father’s Day Gift Guide

30th May 2014

We owe a lot to our dads, including our style. Ok, maybe not the mustache and short-shorts, but everything else we picked up from pops. Here are a few modern looks inspired by our own dads—and we have a hunch yours will dig them too.

1. PICNIC PAPA

image

He may have mangled the French name on the wine label, but man, did he nail the potato salad.

2. WHO’S YOUR CADDIE?

image

True, the only hole he could ace was the 19th. But he’d give up the game before he’d let you pick up the tab.

3. DATE NIGHT DAD

image

Yep, the old man had some moves back in the day. How do you think he won over your mom?

DRESS SHIRTS: A TALE OF TWO FABRICS
Fit and collar are important, but when it comes to dress shirts, the fabric is what makes for a truly great garment. Which is why we’ve put so much time into getting the very best cloth around for our dress shirts. Essentially, you have two choices: Wrinkle-Free or Italian cotton. And both are spectacular. Here’s the skinny to help you choose the best shirt for your needs: [[MORE]]  The Wrinkle-Free Daily Grind Forget what you’ve heard about wrinkle-free shirts before, this fabric is different. With a soft, luxurious hand-feel, it’s nothing like those stiff non-iron shirts from the old days. In fact, the only way you’ll be able to tell its wrinkle-free is from the fact that you won’t have to iron it. Designed for the office, you can put these beauties on right off the hanger and be ready for business before the coffee’s done percolating.  The Italian Cotton Americano When it comes to fabric, this is as good as it gets. We’ve sourced cloth from some of Italy’s finest mills to create a premium dress shirt worthy of the title. Just feel it between your fingers, and the difference is obvious: this is Old World craftsmanship. The Americano dress shirts are designed for connoisseurs, but you don’t have to be a sartorial expert to appreciate the luxury.     Hopefully, this helps get you one step closer to finding your Dress Code. It’s simple: Fabric + Collar + Fit. Just click here to learn more, and if you’d like to try a shirt on in person, you’re always welcome to swing by the Guideshop.

TIE ONE ON RIGHT: A QUICK GUIDE TO NECKTIE PAIRING
You slept straight through the first alarm. You hit “SLEEP” through the next ten. And now you have only seconds to pick out the perfect necktie and shirt combo for that big nine o’clock presentation.   A nightmare scenario? No, not necessarily. True, you probably didn’t need that fourth pint, or the fifth for that matter, but no use crying over spilled stout. The most important thing is nailing that neck wear in a timely fashion.   So here are some tips to make it easy: [[MORE]]  Light Shirt + Dark Tie =  Never Fails. This rule is crucial and simple to remember. If you’re ever in doubt, ever puzzled by the vast array of fabrics and options, just go with a white or light blue shirt and pair it with a darker grey or navy tie. Keep it simple and crisp with dark on light, and you have nothing to worry about.  Vary the scale. This one pertains to patterns. Specifically, what NOT to do. And that’s pair bold with bold. If your shirt has a big or lively pattern, your tie should be more subdued. On the other hand, if your shirt is solid-colored or has a more subtle pattern, feel free to get a little creative with the tie.  There’s a time and a place for novelty ties. This probably isn’t it. If you own your own island and answer to no one, then you can get away with that hula girl memento from Hawaii. But for most of us, the humorous neckties are best left for more casual, social occasions. For your family holiday party, the blinking Rudolph bow tie is a real hoot. For the boardroom, a more conservative silk or cotton tie in a classic half-Windsor will probably serve you better. Good luck! On the presentation, that is. We know you have the tie part covered.
