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.

ON WHITE SHIRTS
Guest written by Sean Hotchkiss
A rather nomadic photographer friend of mine once told me he’d always carry a clean, white, dress shirt in his backpack because he never knew who might invite him to dinner. Lovely advice, but not why I prefer white shirts. Jon Hamm as Don Draper taught us that a crisp white dress shirt could hide nearly every sin imaginable. A benefit, surely, but again not my reasoning.
I favor white dress shirts because they’re the very essence of what a shirt should be: a pristine canvas waiting to be interpreted by a colorful tie or a tweedy sports jacket. You see, a white shirt takes the guesswork out of clothing oneself each day — an attribute to strive for as one gets older and schedules become more complex. As a young intern I’d often get dressed in the dark, as not to wake my roommate, and a white shirt was the only base that ensured my suit would always work. White shirts are as simple as can be. They remove human error. I take mine in the Milanese fashion, with a high spread collar and trim proportions, and I buy them in pairs so I’m never without one. They jive with every single other piece of clothing I own. Nestled under a denim jacket, a white shirt is a sliver of refinement in an otherwise rugged look; paired with a black bowtie a white spread collar dress shirt is formal ready (without the need for studs). Did you know the very first “modern” Edwardian dress shirts were white? Now you do.
Whenever I wear a white dress shirt, someone stops me to say: “you look tan, were you just on vacation?” or “Are you doing SoulCycle?” No. I’ve figured out what works for me — plain vanilla. (And proud.) ON WHITE SHIRTS

WHAT’S IN A COLLAR? MORE THAN YOU MIGHT THINK.
We’ve discussed the three distinct fits we offer in dress shirts, but now it’s time to talk turkey. And by “turkey,” we mean “collars.” Yes, that strip of under-appreciated fabric that rests right below our chins. Because even though we might not give it much thought, it does actually say something about us. Here are the three collar options available at Bonobos, and a little bit of background on each. [[MORE]]  Point Collar: This is as classic as it gets. It works in every scenario, it’s accepted just about everywhere in the world, and everyone is going to be cool with it. If you want to play it safe and look like a true professional, this is the way to go. Think office attire or dinner with the in-laws.  Semi-Spread Collar: Ok, this one is a little bit edgier. A tad more fashion-forward, perhaps, with it’s wider spacing between the collar points. But it’s still a safe bet, and a nice balance between conservative style and modern panache. Think dinner date or downtown gallery show.  Spread Collar: With its continental origins and connotations of haute couture, this collar option is for those with some savoir faire. It can accommodate wider tie knots (if that’s your thing), and has the confident attitude to match. Think Fashion Week party or international espionage.    If you’d like to check out our collar selection for yourself, feel free to click here and pay the Bonobos dress shirt page a visit. And if you’re interested in trying one on, you’re always welcome to swing by a Guideshop.

BONOBOS DENIM: WASH AND LEARN
For an American, jeans are the most basic staple there is. And you’d be hard-pressed to find a guy out there who doesn’t have at least a few pairs of favored indigo beauties on hand for when he needs them. Which is precisely why we go all out on our denim to make sure it lives up to that ideal of versatility, comfort, and the American spirit. We source our denim fabric from a mill in North Carolina called Cone® that’s been making heritage denim on traditional looms for more than a hundred years. But we don’t stop there. The secret to an authentic-feeling pair of jeans is also in the wash—the treatment given to the denim to create different levels of wear on the fabric. Here are a few of our most popular washes, and tips on how to wear them. [[MORE]]  Dark Rinse: This is the closest you’ll generally get to raw indigo denim when it comes to finishes. And as a result, the darkness of the fabric means you can dress it up a little, especially when you go out at night. We like to pair our Flatiron Rinse Premium Denim with a blazer and Grenson dress shoes when we hit the town—it’s a really smart and simple look.  Medium Wash: These types of washes let the denim’s true character come out, creating the feel of jeans that have been broken-in over time. For that reason, they go especially well with richer, more textured pieces. Heavier twill shirts and woolen tweed pair well in the cold, and lightweight linen shirts and herringbones are right for the heat. Our Broken-in Medium Wash Blue Jean and Premium Denim do the job nicely.  Full Bleach Wash: Let’s just put it out there: these jeans make a statement, and a stylish one at that. But they’re not hard to pull off. These are perfect summertime jeans, and they match well with darker solids and stripes. And if you’re ever in doubt, you can’t go wrong with a navy shirt or sweater.

For an American, jeans are the most basic staple there is. And you’d be hard-pressed to find a guy out there who doesn’t have at least a few pairs of favored indigo beauties on hand for when he needs them. Which is precisely why we go all out on our denim to make sure it lives up to that ideal of versatility, comfort, and the American spirit. We source our denim fabric from a mill in North Carolina called Cone® that’s been making heritage denim on traditional looms for more than a hundred years. But we don’t stop there. The secret to an authentic-feeling pair of jeans is also in the wash—the treatment given to the denim to create different levels of wear on the fabric. Here are a few of our most popular washes, and tips on how to wear them. [[MORE]]  Dark Rinse: This is the closest you’ll generally get to raw indigo denim when it comes to finishes.

For that reason, they go especially well with richer, more textured pieces. Heavier twill shirts and woolen tweed pair well in the cold, and lightweight linen shirts and herringbones are right for the heat.
