The Father’s Day Fashion Checklist for your Dad
Father’s Day is an exclusive opportunity for you to make your dad feel truly special by spending time with him and gifting him something thoughtful. Giving his wardrobe a makeover is a great way to do both. Before you both head to the stores, we’ve made you a style checklist – so that your shopping spree covers every aspect of men’s grooming.
Start off your makeover session by gifting your dad a watch that spells elegance and style. While there are plenty of brands to choose from, we recommend something Swiss-made and finely crafted. It would also bode you well to pick an analogue dial, to lend that timeless look, perfect for all occasions – casual and formal.
A classic blazer
While a suit maybe a bit of a long haul, a sharply tailored blazer is a great way to spruce up his boardroom look. If your dad has been playing it safe all these years by sticking to blacks, browns and greys, it might be a good time to infuse some colour into his formal dressing, with a classic blue jacket.

A trendy pair of Chinos
Now that you’ve got the basics stocked, introduce your dad to the most comfortable invention of this century – chinos. They’re ideal for this season and complete every casual look, without the heaviness of denim. While there are plenty of hues and fabrics to choose from, we suggest you start him off with a liveable cotton pair in a neutral shade, like khaki.

Here is something that won’t take too much convincing for your dad to don – the classic check shirt. It’s a look that has stood the test of time, but you can always give your dad an edge over the others by picking unique styles and colours. What’s more – they’d go brilliantly with the chinos he’ll be now more eager to try out.
Self-care is an essential part of being stylish. While gifting your dad a bottle of cologne is traditional, go the extra mile by putting together a complete grooming kit. You can add in a fancy razor, some premium shaving cream and a can of aftershave lotion. Adding moustache wax if he maintains a ‘stache would be thoughtful too.

Finally, we’re rounding off the checklist with something fun – colourful, funky socks. If your dad is averse to some colour in his wardrobe, socks would be a great place to get him started on his journey towards a more vibrant style. They might seem insignificant, but the pop of colour on the ankles really makes for an eye-catching fashion statement.
