Editor’s Gift Guide: Father’s Day

New Dads deserve cool gear.

Jessica and I were on the train back to Brooklyn from an event last week, and we were discussing how unsentimental buying gifts for our guys can be. Girls get personal things like our favorite flowers or jewelry, and guys, well, they get very manly things like sneakers and money clips. As tempted as we are to adorn them in sweetness, after our years spent as menswear editors, we realize that men simply want a good product. And we don’t blame them. I personally developed a love for kicks and bikes that I had only flirted with before editing a men’s mag, and we both learned to fully appreciate how difficult it can be for menswear designers to make a basic shirt and pants look special. Which is why we had an especially fun time putting together this Father’s Day gift guide. And also because our guys — like yours — are awesome dads (and dads-to-be).
