Tailored gifts for a fashionable father
So Father’s Day is beckoning but have you thought about what to get your old man as a gift to show him how much he means? It’s often a fair bit easier getting a present for your mother than it is your dad, but he deserves his day to be just as special, so we’ve given you a hand in choosing the perfect gift.
If you’ve got a dad who takes (almost) just as much pride in his wardrobe as he does in his children then you’ll want to make sure your gift caters for his fashionable taste. However, with fashion tastes being so subjective it can be rather tricky to find a gift he’ll like. That’s why we’re recommending you let him create his own with our selection of customised clothing and accessories.
All of the gift ideas below can be customised and ordered online making it a hassle-free process.

Customised made to order shirt

Made to order shirts make for a great gift as there are a countless number of occasions your dad could make do with an extra special shirt. He can create it to go with his favourite suit so he can stroll up to the next family event in style, or opt for something suave for those all important business meeting – the choice will ultimately be his. Wearing a tailored shirt which is completely in line with his fashion taste will not only have him looking great but also feeling his very best.
Hemingway’s made to order shirts allow for a range of customisable options which leave you with a truly unique shirt. Start by selecting one of over 60 fabrics and then effortlessly make the adjustments you need, from the fit of the shirt, to the collar style, to having initials sewn into the shirt, all in an easy step-by-step process online.

Customised watch

Watches make for great pieces to complete an outfit, and a customised watch allows your dad to stamp his mark on his time piece. Eoniq grant you the freedom to customise a watch from 3 base styles (1 pilot watch and 2 dress watches). While there may only be 3 base styles to choose from, the customisation options are aplenty.
As you’d expect you can alter the strap along with all the details of the face and the movement within it. The whole process is pretty effortless and in a matter of minutes you can create a unique timepiece.

Customised travel bag

A man with a taste for style has to ensure he also looks the part when he travels. Chapman bags offer just that with a range of bags which vary from messenger styled bags to back packs. Given the fact it’s a bag, there aren’t a whole host of options in terms of customisation but they do allow enough freedom to make sure you can create something fit for your travels while catering to your style.
We took a particular liking to the range of tweed fabrics they had on offer. With the fabric being commonly associated with country clothing, it would certainly make a fitting choice for a lover of the outdoors.

Customised Ray Bans

The summer is right around the corner and there aren’t many ways of your dad feeling young (and somewhat cool) again than throwing on a pair of customised Ray Bans. The popular eyewear brand serve you up the option of customising the lens and frame of the glasses along with providing a small space to have a few letters engraved.
While the British weather might mean that these could well lay around idle for most of the year, if you’re going to purchase them then now is the time, just before the summer sun really sets in.

Final words

Tailored gifts make for a great choice as they add a personal touch which no doubt makes it that bit more meaningful – along with helping to cater for those rather selective fathers. It’s also nice to take time out and go through the process of customising the gift together, spending quality time with your dad on Father’s Day and putting a smile on his face in the process.
