Fathers Day Gift Guide 2019

Whether he’s a collector or adventurer, get inspired with our selection of carefully curated gifts for Fathers Day 2019 from our globally sourced independent labels.

Crafty Dad

For the Dad who favours craftsmanship, The Superior Labor is the creation of Makoto Kawai who found the brand in 2007 after he started to tan leathers, opening his own laboratory in Okayama Japan, a city famous for their quality denim and garment production. In a period of mass production and low-cost workforce, The Superior Labor goes against the tide and focuses on craftsmanship and in-house production with their expertly made wallets, key chains and coin pouches. Conversely, opt for a Toyo Steel tool box, an award-winning design suitable for storing tools, pencils or even lunch if you're in the mood. Each tool box has been made from hard wearing steel free from welds and seams in Toyo's original Osaka factory for a high-quality finish.

Collector Dad

For the collector, Japanese toy brand Medicom are renowned for their playful and comical figurines. The Be@arbricks derive from their predecessor of Medicom's Kubrick’s and was first released in Tokyo in May ’01 originally made from plastic but are now designed from materials such as felt, wood and even glow-in-the-dark plastic. 

Stylish Dad

Of course, stylish Dad’s will be drawn to our selection of pieces from the likes of YMC, Drop Out Sports, Norse Projects, Chinatown Market and Gaijin Made which will easily make for an effortless father's day gift. Or, if you prefer to stick to the traditional gift of socks this Father’s Day – with a considered playfulness rarely seen in your everday sock, Japanese label ROSTERSOX's expertly made pieces often feature light hearted visuals and phrases to not only compliment and co-ordinate an outfit but also to put a smile on your face. Taking inspiration from vintage Americana collegiate style and baseball culture, ROSTERSOX's detailed approach to design is enough to convince you to re-assess this underappreciated styling item.
