Why is it that fathers always get the short end of the stick with it comes to receiving gifts during fathers day? They always seem to get stuck with some silly gift that they’ll never use. So, to save our feelings they burry it in their sock drawer, occasionally bringing it out for various “family” function.

Let’s face it, todays fathers aren’t the boring dreary characters we see on tv. Instead they are more tech savvy, stylish and “generally” cooler…and if for some reason your dad is still caught in a time warp we proclaim that as his child it’s your solemn responsibility to guide him through his style evolution. So with that in mind, we’ve put together the ultimate father’s day gift guide so that we can help you, help him, look and feel his best!

Without Prejudice comes to us from the eclectic and creative corner of North West London where two brothers with a passion for fashion and a long family history in fashion marketing wanted to create something unique. WP is among one of the greats brands we carry that offers a wide range of styles fit for any occasion. We’ve got a variety of daytime sportcoats all the way up to a classic black tuxedo.

We recognize that there is a growing trend among men to look for “transitional” items, ones that can take you from one occasion to the next. But, let’s not abuse that privilege. The real sign of a gentlemen lies is in his ability to diversify his wardrobe to match the occasion at hand.  With the vast array of styles and fashion now available for men, there is no reason why you should be wearing your office suit jacket as a sportcoat for a night out. Here are some great examples of how you can work WP in to your wardrobe to achieve distinct looks based on your function.

Summer, summer, summertime. Time to sit back and unwind, party, tan and go on dates. Everyone knows that summer is the time when people come out of hibernation and look to get out, reconnect with old friends and more importantly make new ones. With Spring being break-up season, its only fitting that summer is matting season, make-up season, dating season…you get the idea. Summer offers some great options on what you can do when planning a date, from afternoon picnics, late night dinner, to casual walks by the water. Unlike winter where you are confined to being indoors, summer definitely opens the doors to possibilities, which can only work in your favour.

Once you’ve got the girl and activity nailed down, pardon the innuendo, the next step is to figure out what you’re going to wear. Your outfit is key in ensuring that you put your best foot forward, because there is no doubt that she will be paying attention. To help you in that department we reached out to our stylists to put together some of their best “Summer Date” outfits.

Neal: My inspiration for my Summer Date outfit was a nice day in the park or on the beach. I wanted a look that would be nice and fashionable yet light and airy. To start with I picked these great shorts by Parke and Ronen, they offer a great fit and are made of a nice light weight cotton making them very breathable and comfortable for long walks. I paired that with a Parke and Ronen mesh cardigan which I layered with a fun stripped tank by Benson. Mesh cardigans are on trend right now and offer a nice twist to classic sartorial style.

No picnic or beach date is complete without the appropriate accessories. For this outfit I included a large tote bag from benson for all your sunscreen, towels, hats and flask incase you get “thirsty”.  I also added a light John Varvatos scarf so you’re prepared incase it gets a little cooler in the evening.

Daria: My Summer Date outfit revolves around going on a nice dinner where you want to dress up but not look overly stuffy. It’s all about keeping it summery and light, yet sophisticated. I started with a classic navy Oscar shirt. This shirt is a no-brainer as it goes with everything and require very little finessing.  Same is true of the sport jacket, the great check pattern allows the wearer to pretty much pair it with any colour or style. You can dress it up, as we’ve done here with a pair of Hiltil trousers or down with a nice pair of jeans for a casual afternoon brunch.

One of my favourite items in this look are the light grey brogues from John Varvatos. These shoes are simply great, the light shade offers a nice twist to a smart summer shoe, while still being versatile enough that you can wear them with trousers or jeans. It’s a perfect example of  what we like to call “sophisticated casual”.

Anderson’s Textile Woven Belt: $135
Oscar Solid Slim Fit Shirt: $198
Hiltl Piacenza Check Pant: $228
Sand Wool/Linen Blazer w/ Suede Elblow Patches: $698
Base London Catch Suede Shoe: $175
A Christensen Pocketsquare: $45

Nicole: My inspiration is based on a man that is very well put together, he has a good full time job and someone who takes a lot of pride in the way he dresses. For that man there was no other option than our stunning double breasted jacket. This isn’t your fathers old double breasted jacket, it’s modern, stylish and sure to make you stand out from the crowd. What makes this blazer great is that its 1/4 lined making it light weight and ideal for warm summer dates on the boardwalk.

But let’s not forget that any well dressed man knows the importance of details, which is why I added this great WOOD watch which goes perfectly with our monk strap shoes. And for the cherry on top, I threw in one our floral print linen pocket squares…just cause!

 Joel: I think the best dates are spontaneous and you never know where they are going to lead you, so I picked an outfit that would be very versatile and literally take you anywhere. You could go to a fancy dinner or a walk in the park, there are no limitations to where you can go in this outfit.

Wearing colour is on trend right now, which is why I chose these cotton trousers as they are very easy to wear. I paired it with a lot of neutral so that it wasn’t overwhelming in colour. The other main feature of this outfit is the cotton blazer because it adds that bit of formal edge while keeping the look very light weight and easy going. I also love the shoes because even though they seem a little trendy they are a classic and can be worn in the future.

 Lindsay: Mid-Summer night picnic in the park was my inspiration behind my Summer date outfit. With the great summer weather, dates in the park are always a sure bet at being romantic. Keeping that in mind I started with this sport jacket just incase it gets a little chilly as the evening progresses. We added some pop of colour under jacket with with a cool pink shirt (real men wear pink) and green scarf. No picnic is complete without some “beverages” which is why I included our great flask set, incase you guys get a little thirsty.

To round it off I paired this outfit with a nice WOOD watch, AG denim, and classic canvas brogue shoes.

Take a moment and ask yourself, what do your shoes say about you? As we all know,  shoes are an extension of ones style and much like anything else we adorn it speaks volumes about our character before we’ve even had the opportunity to uttered a word. So, are you the hipster, the maverick, or the Bay St tycoon? No matter how you identify yourself, you’re a multifaceted individual and your style should reflect that.

Just like you wouldn’t necessarily wear a 3-piece suit to the grocery store, why would you wear the same pair of shoes to every occasion? Mixing and matching is a great way to breath new life into your daily style, not to mention having options automatically increases the lifespans of the shoes you own. It’s time for some spring cleaning and while you consider replacing or adding to your collection, we recommend you check out these great new arrivals from John Varvatos, Ted Baker, Matteo Massimo, Wolverine, Luca Vero, and Tiger of Sweden.
