Fathers who are men of many talents - they are clever, articulate, have a distinct style and still enjoy a touch of the vintage make up the classic dad. This type of dad will appreciate well-made things; get him well-made shoes, a tailored shirt or a classic accessory. Here’s our gift guide to make sure dad feels special on this day.
A Classic Shirt
Go white, or not, but remember to pick a cut and colour that will never go out of style. The well-tailored shirts from Raymond, in solid shades like cream and blue are a perfect pick.
You don’t need us to convince you that this is a great idea. Father will always find formal shoes useful. Styles from home-grown brands like Ruosh, which hand-finishes its shoes, are a great option. And you can’t go wrong with a pair in tan. Or black.
A Belt to Match
Like formal leather shoes, a leather belt is a good gift option. Again, tan and black are safe options as they go well with, well, everything.
A Watch For His Collection
A classic man will love a classic timepiece. Father will like an analog watch to keep the time – find one with additional complications and sub-dials so he can track the date, seconds and more.
A Vintage Player
We suggest checking out this vintage digital player. Designed to look like a vintage radio, this Saregama Carvaan digital audio player comes pre-loaded with 5,000 songs that cover the musical spectrum – from evergreen Hindi film music to ghazals and Carnatic to devotional music, the library caters to every taste and mood.(L-R, clockwise from top): Saregama Caravan; watch, Fossil; shirts, Raymond; shoes, Ruosh.
