We spend an awful lot of time shopping for ourselves and perusing available goods online- something I like to refer to as “market research.” We know exactly when the next Kenzo collection drops down to the date and we can recite each color by name that the Balenciaga Velo is available in. And while most dads are just thankful to be thought of (mom’s the one who always gets all the credit, afterall), remember to choose wisely because he knows exactly how much you spent on those engraved beer steins and he thinks it’s absolutely ridiculous. And no, he doesn’t want another f&^#ing tie.
Not only is Father’s Day a great day to indulge dad in something that he’s been eyeing at Home Depot, it’s also an opportune time to replace his ratty socks, holey undershirts (which I take for myself), and embarrassing choices in footwear. I may very well be purchasing the polar bear trunks from Vilebrequin for Dick, seeing as I have a childhood memory of his Speedo always going missing and my mom not having the slightest clue where it might have gone. Must be like disappearing socks in the dryer. Whether pops is sporty, handy, or a classic Don Draper, now’s the time to show your appreciation for those braces and his breadwinning.
