Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Christys' London Crocheted Raffia Fedora at HartfordYork.comThere’s still time with express shipping to get a great gift for dad from Hartford York this Father’s Day. I’ve been asked for my top Father’s Day gift ideas, and hope you find something you think he’ll love from these items that pull double duty — being useful and stylish:

Sun Readers

Sunglasses that serve as reading glasses let dad look great when he’s kicking back on the beach. A pair of sun readers also keep him from having to juggle a couple pairs of glasses (except those he’s drinking from, of course…)

Hot Hats and Caps

A cool cap or summer hat will protect dad from too much of a good thing, and below you’ll find a few colorful examples of what’s hot for him in hats this Father’s Day:

  • The Fantasy Band by Borsalino. It may seem a small thing, but the dark edging on the light ribbon trim on this Panama fedora really changes its overall appearance, and is a complete departure from the perceived “norm” of a bleached white straw with black ribbon.
  • The Superstitious by Carlos Santana is satin-lined ivy cap that is brilliant in color, and it’s proving already to be extremely popular. We’re generally seeing more plaids and contrast panels in caps, even in the tans and grays, greatly increasing choice.
  • The Patchwork Ravi is a cotton hat by Robert Graham. Usually everyone immediately goes to “bucket hat” when picturing a cotton hat, but this stingy brim plaid trilby is both boldly stylish and eminently wearable.

Hope your Father’s Day is a real celebration!

Father’s Day Approacheth: Try A Hat This Year

Panama Straw Hats from Hartford York Hats - Brent Black - Montecristi Panama - The $10K MontecristiThe third Sunday of June is Father’s Day (June 17 to be exact this year), and for those of you scrambling for a gift idea that’s slightly more exciting than another Snoopy tie (and you know how much I love Peanuts!), why not get the man a hat?

You don’t have to break the bank, of course, with something uber extravagant like The $10K Montecristi Panama (although I’m guessing it’s likely pay-back time for all the grey hairs you gave the old man). No, you can choose one of the more affordable Montecristi Panama hats–it’s the same hat, the difference being in the fineness of the weave (and the number of years it’ll take you to pay it off).

If you just need some more time to save your pennies before getting Dad a little something, might I suggest taking up residency in Estonia or Finland, perhaps? Father’s Day in those countries isn’t till November, you see.

Bon voyage!
