Father's day awaits – are you ready? You will find most people driving either to a sporting shop or to the bottle shop scouting for the best father’s day gift. But believe us, you can make better choices. This year, don’t go with clichés - your dad deserves better. If you’re looking to give your dad a gift he will appreciate and one that upgrades his style, here are our suggestions:

For the working Dad: Cary Bag By Stuart And Lau
A lightweight, waterproof construction that combines comfort with convenience is one of the best father’s day gifts! The utility driven design makes the bag ideal for meetings and for commuting too. The inside is organized with multiple pockets to store anything from business cards to earphones. And if that’s not enough, it’s even got an umbrella slot!

For the fun-on-weekends Dad: Herschel Novel Weekender Bag
Speaking of bags and comfort, here is another father’s day gift for those days off. These bags have full leather straps and the base has a separate compartment for shoe storage! With a two-way water zipper and removable padded webbing shoulder strap, this bag is great for those who love to travel!

For the Collector Dad: Cufflinks
Let your dad secure the sleeves of his best dress shirts with cufflinks! You can choose from many designs and materials too, such as glass, stone, precious metals. If you have the budget, you can even get cufflinks monogrammed to showcase your dad’s unique taste and style – and his initials.

For the 9-to-5 Dad: Subscription Box
For the dad who has everything - if you aren't sure what to get, then a style box subscription it the way to go! It’s a gift that keeps giving - direct to your dad, every month! A subscription box makes a pretty cool (and generous!) gift.

For the Gadget-Loving Dad: Fitbit Charge 2 Fitness Tracker
Give a gift that works has hard as dad. Never mind if your dad is a fitness freak or a couch potato, either way, if you dad its into gadgets, he’s bound to love this new toy. The Fitbit Chargw 2 is an upgrade from the prvious design taking style and fitness to a new level. It allows users to track their activity, sleeping patterns and heartrate, and reminds them to move.

For the comfort-loving Dad: Flat Front Chino
Chinos are must-haves for any stylish dad! He can wear them on Fridays for work or pair them with a polo or tee for the weekends. Popular colours are khaki, beige and navy. For those who don’t fit into the off-the-rack sizes, you can get your chinos custom made!

For the practical Dad: Custom Dress Shirt
Dress shirts are always appealing and you dad can never have too many. However, use discretion because the fit is so important. If your dad isn’t a standard size, it’s definitely worth getting one made especially for him. You can choose the fabric, the cut, the collar, cuffs and even the colour of the stitching! For that extra personal touch, you can it monogrammed!

For the Cool and Casual Dad: Chambray Shirt
Think of chambray as an upgrade from the rugged henley. A chambray shirt has that four-season versatility which can be worn casual or dressy, sharp or rugged, making it an ideal gift your dad is bound to get much use out of.

For the Adventurer-at-Work Dad: Commuter Pants
Does your dad bike to work? Or maybe he takes the tram and legs it uphill from Flinders Street. For all the physical activity to and from work, your dad needs dress pants that are durable. We recommend staying away from extremely fitted pants and anything over a super 120’s wool. For more advice on suitable fabrics and fit, come meet our fashion consultants at The Suit Concierge!

For the Polished Dad: A Personalised Leather Valet
This one will make mum happy too – a leather valet to keep all his bits and bobs in! It’s a simple item but a very handy one. Order a personalised one with his initial or a quote or message from you to make it a little more…well, personal!

If buying off the rack is not an option, a tailor-made solution may be the deal for you. Bring your dad over to The Suit Concierge for fitting and a style consult – we will be happy to help, and we will help you make it a Happy Father’s Day!
