Fathers day is just around the corner and this year instead of getting your special guy something for the grill or the latest gadget — give him a gift with style. Whether he is a gentleman who needs a push in the dapper direction or a guy who has his wardrobe on lockdown, these gifts will have you covered!
1. REPLACE THOSE TATTERED CARGOS
We know, men LOVE a good cargo short, so we aren’t saying they should stop wearing them altogether, we are simply suggesting that the oversized, worn-out cargo be replaced with a more modern and tailored short instead. Something that hits above the knee and has more shape through the thigh. And as you can see, the occasional cargo pocket still makes the cut!

2. A SUMMER WEIGHT RAINCOAT — A PNW MUST
It’s a fact, it rains here. Frequently. Even our Summer’s aren’t immune to it. So help dad out by giving him a rain option that is considerably lighter than his winter alternative! Bonus: it folds up nicely and out of the way when the afternoon sun hits.
3. THE SUMMER OF SHORT SLEEVES
This is NOT your grandfathers short sleeve shirt — this summer it’s all about the modern take on a classic look. Keys to help him pull off the look: fit, color and print. Fit should be slim, not tight. Color should be complimentary to his skin tone (hint: navy and chambray look good on almost everyone!). Choose a pattern based on where the shirt will be worn. Bold patterns are great for that weekend BBQ where as smaller, detailed patterns are better suited for the office or dinner out.

4. SOCKS ARE SOCKS… BUT GOOD SOCKS ARE LIFECHANGING
Gone are the days of cheap argyle socks. More and more men are thinking about the details of their ensemble and bringing their entire look together. They are focusing on pattern over brightness and opting for a better quality sock. Luxury socks not only look better, they feel better and last longer — it’s the gift he didn’t even know he wanted!
