As June approaches, I'm faced with a perpetual problem...the fathers in my life have EVERYTHING they need. Since I've already breezed through the basics, my favorite gifts to give add a little pizazz to my special guy's (guys') life.
Haspel Seersucker Blazer--Head to toe seersucker with a bowtie can be hard to pull off but a blazer pairs with dark jeans and a punchy belt, dark khakis or brightly colored chinos. Yes, there are imitators, but Haspel is the originator. Always classic. Always summery. Available at finer department stores.

Eat the meat! Olympic Provisions Salami of the Month Club $135
