Father’s Day is Sunday, June 16, 2019. Your potential buyers are likely looking for a gift for the dads who consistently go above and beyond. We know this is not an easy task. Luckily, we did the majority of the legwork on your behalf. In this list, we compiled what we think are the 5 best-known archetypes of dads in relation to fashion accessories. Which category does your dad fall into?
The dad whose only item of jewelry is his wedding band: Tiger’s Eye Ring – TK378
Face it, part of becoming a dad is looking like a dad but it doesn’t have to be that way! There’s at least one guaranteed piece of jewelry most dad’s will wear every day and that’s his wedding band. Why stick to the same boring band day in and day out? The average man wants to look presentable but also does not want to be flashy, so the traditional sparkly stones aren’t going to be suitable for the standard dad. That’s why our pick for the most dad-friendly ring is the tiger’s eye. The polished stainless steel band is sleek yet understated and the polished brown sheen of the tiger’s eye stone matches brilliantly with a pair of brown leather dress shoes. It even goes well with a pair of nicely fitted of jeans and a casual blazer for a more laid back look. If he is going to be wearing a ring anyway, why not choose one that will make him feel just a little bit less ordinary.
The old t-shirt and jeans dad: Stainless Steel “Ivory” Necklace – TK2004
Maybe he’s lazy or maybe he’s bohemian. In either case, this type of dad wears the same few 80s metal band t-shirts most days and the holes in his jeans weren’t there when he bought them. It’s no question that many men like this embrace a more natural and more simple way of dressing. But just because you’re bohemian, doesn’t mean you can’t still look like a gentleman. The key difference between looking slick and looking like a slob is accessories. When you pair a ratty t-shirt and torn jeans with a well put together accessories, you signify to the world that you meant for those holes to be in that shirt. Try to pair this more casual look with our stainless steel “ivory” and faux leather necklace. This stainless steel pendant is inspired by the natural look of ivory or shark tooth without any of the harm. Worn with a faux leather necklace and even the laziest outfit can look put together.
The cool dad: Serpent’s Trace Bracelet – TK575
The coolness of a dad is dependent on the age of the beholder. There’s no one cooler than your dad when you’re under 12 years old and there’s no one lamer than your dad when you’re a teenager. Even though this is an absolute law of nature when dealing with your own dad, when we look at another person’s dad, we know a “cool” dad when we see one. For those motorcycle riding, adventure sports loving “cool” dad, nothing fits better than this serpent’s trace bracelet. The ridged pattern of this bracelet is inspired by deadly snakes and other dangerous creatures. Wearing this bracelet lets the cool dad stay adventurous even when he’s just in the garage working on his Harley.
The dapper dad: Cufflinks – TK3290
Not all dads are slobs and if they are now, there’s a good chance they weren’t a slob before they became a dad. To the current and former dapper dads, there’s no better way to elevate a formal look than with cufflinks. Just wearing cufflinks shows that you care about how you look since the shirts themselves can be hard to find. To take your French style cuff to the next level, we recommend our gunmetal semi-precious cufflinks. The subtle glimmer of stones pairs elegantly with a white or off-white dress shirt.
The breadwinner: Money Clip – TK2091
You’ve seen it before, some dad’s just only want to talk about money. Whether it’s too much money or not enough, it’s safe to say that this type of dad already has a favorite accessory: cold hard cash. Then what’s better than getting an accessory for his favorite accessory! The interwoven pattern on this money clip is inlaid with a handsome black enamel. The design evokes playfulness as well as seriousness and is perfect for the guy that wants to show off the greenbacks every once in a while. It doesn’t hurt that it’s less bulky and easier to carry around than that old trifold wallet he’s carrying.
We wouldn’t dare claim that these 5 archetypes of dads cover all styles of dads but we would like to think that we got close. With these 5 styles of accessories, we are sure that even if your dad doesn’t fit into any of these categories, he will still feel loved this Father’s Day.
