The Proper Father’s Day Gift Guide

Father’s Day Gift Guide

Every Father’s Day it’s the same old story, another mediocre tie, another lackluster shirt, a new electric razor, as if after 60 years of putting on a tie for work and shaving stubble each morning, your dad should be thrilled at such tangible replicas of monotony.

 So why not break the vicious cycle this Father’s Day?

Give him something he will actually use, something that’s new, different, but still rooted in a timeless style. And if it’s as true as they say, that the trick is to give gifts that you would enjoy, too, then the choice is clear in Proper Threads.

But which proper thread for which dad? We’ll make it simple for you:

The Golfer

For the dad that just can’t stay off the links, our Prescott pant is a no-brainer. Touted as Golf Threads Blog favorite spring pant, the Prescott gives your golfer free range of movement while its tapered-leg will keep him looking up to par, even if his golf game isn’t.

Pair the Prescott with either our Lindley polo, a quintessential piece for the golf wardrobe; or switch it up with the Delphine polo from our current Spring and Summer 2015 collection for a sophisticated break from tradition.


The Traveler

For the dad that prefers to spend his leisure time lounging poolside or indulging in foreign cultures, we recommend both the Brunner and the EOS. The Brunner polo is a personal favorite of Devereux’s and a staple for any wardrobe, which makes it so perfect for traveling. It’s versatile, it’s classic and it holds its own no matter the climate or the society.

The EOS polo is another good option for the globetrotting father. Inspired by the sea, this polo was meant for the resort. It’s laid-back feel oozes vacation, while its pima cotton threads embody it. This is the resort polo.

The Gentleman

For the dad that is truly a man of the world, a perennial gent both inside and out, allow us to suggest the Argo. The Argo is our most elegant polo from the Christina O Collection. This is a polo adds an extra air of class during the day and can still keep up with the Jones’ at night. It’s a perfect companion for a day out, followed by a five-course dinner.

Another Devereux piece that personifies class is our Arthur sweater. Made from fine baby alpaca and Peruvian pima, is a prime choice for the gentlemen dad living in cooler climates. This light sweater warms chilly breezes, while still staying cool in the sunshine. It’s a smart choice for the debonair dad.


The Creative

For the dad that isn’t like the rest, both our Aristotle and Luna polos offer a style that even the non-conformist can get behind. By far, the Aristotle polo is our most unique offering with its waved cut-and-sew piece across the chest, as it capsizes the idea of the conventional polo.

Nevertheless, our Luna polo is notable in its own right, defying the traditional pattern and slashing it down the middle with bold contrast in color. No matter which you choose, dad is sure to be pleased with these one-of-kind pieces.
