Allen Edmonds Randolph Penny Loafer

If your dad is the fashionable type, chances are he already has a pair of penny loafers that are older than you. With their custom cork insoles that form to the feet, these Randolph Penny Loafers are likely more comfortable than those ancient ones in your father's closet. Either way, they will be a great addition to his collection. They also come in extended widths and lengths for the sasquatch dad.

American Optical Saratoga sunglases in demi-amber color
AO Eyewear

American Optical Saratoga

The quintessential father figure during the 20th century would more than likely go to John F. Kennedy. Handsome, stylish, well spoken, oh, and the president of the United States. JFK set the bar high in terms of father standards and his choice of style set that bar even higher. From his perfectly tailored suits to his riviera yacht, boating style casual looks, JFK donned some iconic looks — none more so than his American Optical sunglasses.

With a history dating back to 1833, AO has had some famous people sport its sunglasses, but maybe none so quite like when JFK did on his days on the water in his more casual looks. Just recently, in 2020, AO decided to go back into its archives to re-release the style that JFK loved to rock, the Saratoga model shades in a demi-amber color. Gift Dad these sunglasses and help him elevate his style to a President Kennedy level worthy look.

Salsa Horsethief Carbon SLX Mountain Bike

Like its namesake, this mountain bike is spicy! This lightweight, carbon-fiber bike from salsa has too many bells and whistles to name.

Barmen 1873 Bourbon

Barmen 1873 Bourbon is a premium, small-batch bourbon that honors the historic whiskey-making tradition of Barmen dating back to 1873.

Hand-bottled in vintage-inspired bottles, Barmen 1873 Bourbon embodies rich history, artisanal craftsmanship, and exceptional taste, making it a choice spirit for connoisseurs.
