Father's Day Edit 2: The Dapper Dad

Father's Day Edit 2: The Dapper Dad

When your Dad spends longer in the bathroom than anyone else in the house, it’s fair to say he’s a man who takes his appearance seriously. The Dapper Dad oozes style, smells expensive and loves a mirror. Sound familiar? Then we have the gift guide for you - our top picks for Dads who like to look their best.

Solid State Cologne

Yes that’s right, Solid State is a solid cologne - with a waxy texture similar to a lip balm, you simply use your finger to apply the scent. Solid State have seriously stepped up their scent game with their new Flora collection, and Dads will love the new “Bloom” fragrance. A unisex scent, it’s a delicious blend of iris and juniper berry with a smoky cedar wood base that will ensure Dad gets extra hugs this Fathers Day and for the year ahead. 

Superdry Poolside Polo

A classic SuperDry polo is always a popular gift for Dad, and the new season styles will have him looking more dapper than ever. With a striped detail on the cuff and collar, this polo is made of 100% organic cotton, so it’s a gift you can feel good about. Be sure to buy Dad a size up as these are an extra slim fit! 

Triumph & Disaster Toilet Bag

When Dad has more than his share of manscaping products, he needs a stylish toiletry bag to hold them all. Enter the “Frank the Dopp” toiletry bag from the clever folks at Triumph & Disaster, an edgy leather number that’s masculine as well as refined. With a 100% leather outer and synthetic water-resistant interior, it’s a gift that Dads will use for years to come - for an extra generous gift, throw in a tube of the cult Old Fashioned Shave Cream. 

Izipizi Sun Collection

Is that Magnum PI? Nope, it’s just your Dad rocking these super cool aviator style shades from Izipizi. These lightweight sunglasses feature flexible hinges and category 3 sun protection lenses for 100% UV protection. Available in three colours, they come in a handy felt pouch and ooze laidback cool - perfect for your trendy old man! 

Superdry Swim Shorts


Father’s Day always signifies the end of winter in NZ, and what better way to celebrate than with a new pair of boardies for the boat days and BBQs that are just a few short months away. This slim, short style from Superdry is bang on trend and features a fun but not too loud palm tree print that’s perfect for making an understated statement. 

Bruno Shirt from Cutler & Co

A good quality shirt is the ultimate present for a Dapper Dad, and this 100% cotton number from Cutler & Co ticks all the boxes. Lightweight and well cut, it’s a classic white shirt with a twist, featuring bold buttons of different colours for a pop of style. With no pockets, it’s a modern and unique look that your stylish Dad will love - and look effortlessly handsome in too, of course.
