Jun 17, 2010 - by Fashion Indie
Last night, Robert Verdi hosted John Bartlett, Jonathan Adler and John Allen at the fabulous Luxe Lab for a rundown of his perfectly polished picks for papa. Check out Verdi's must-gives after the jump...
For Dad's Best Friend: John Bartlett Tiny Tim Tee - www.johnbartlett.com
Perfect for the dad with dog, this tee features John Bartlett's rescue pup Tiny Tim. Proceeds of each shirt benefit the ASPCA.
For The Home Decor Obsessed Dad: Jonathan Adler Scented Candles - www.jonathanadler.com
In unusual scents like Tomato and Grapefruit, these are the perfect gift for the daddy obsessed with keeping his castle smelling great. Adler suggests that each home should have a signature scent, I suggest each room...
For The Dad Who's Into Smelling Good: Kenneth Cole Vintage Black - www.kennethcole.com
A deeper, sharper scent with top notes of fresh green lime with a dry oakwood to create an icy tequila shot of appealing odor.
For The Dad Into Grooming: John Allans Grooming Services - www.johnallans.com
Kind of like the beauty salon for men, operated by a born and true Jersey boy, it's the type of place you imagine Frank Sinatra would frequent, when he wasn't busy attending orgies with President Kennedy...
For The Dad Who Wants to Feel Soft to Touch: Vaseline Men Care System - www.vaseline.com
I actually bought a kit for my dad a few weeks ago cause of his diabetes. It's no frills, doesn't smell floral and it cools his skin on application. Definitely a great buy if you want something for a papa who forgets to take care of himself.
For The Dad On The Go: Coach Dop Kit - www.coach.com
A black sleek dop kit is ideal for a dad that travels often. Fill it with airport security approved shave gels and cleansers (John Allan's Salon actually carries a kit) and you've got a thoughtful gift and a dad who will think of you when he's away.
For The Dad Who Needs Get Polished: Rowenta Travel Iron - www.rowenta.com
I already steamed all my clothes with this thing. It's addicting, so make sure you don't use it before it goes to daddy...
For The Dad Who Worships The Sun: Hugo Boss Aviator Sunglasses - www.hugoboss.com
Same as above, too stylish to give away.
For The Suave Dad on A Budget: JCPenney Joseph Abboud Suit - www.jcpenney.com
Becks and I just took a trip to JCPenney and fell in love with the crazy amount of perfectly priced items for women. I fell in love with the Joe by Joseph Abboud collection, which reminded me of my years working at the Woodbury Commons at the brands outlet. Still have suits from them and I can tell you, they are perfectly fitting for the American sized dad.
For The Rock n Roll Dad: Jan Leslie Cufflinks - www.janleslie.com
If you've got a bit of a Rock N Roll dad, then you need to get him these cufflinks. They are just way too bad ass to pass up.
For The Dad Who Needs to Be On A Schedule: Skagen Watch - www.skagen.com
Wearing this right now, I just don't think I can part with it. DAMN YOU VERDI!!! You're just too good at selecting gifts that I want, my dad's totally getting a pair of tube socks for Daddy's day.
For The Dad Who Keeps His Money Close: Cole Haan Seton Tuxedo Wallet - www.colehaan.com
Might need to have a dad who wears tuxedo's to make this work, but still a great looking, very stylish looking wallet.
For The Clean Freak Dad: Stoner Solutions Invisible Glass - www.StonerSolutions.com
If you're dad is an auto hound, Stoner Solutions offers the most advanced windshield cleaning solution on the market. My dad already uses this stuff, but considering the amount of sut New York apartment windows collect, it's really necessary for this urban life of ours.
For The Dad Who Likes A Bloody Good Cocktail: McClure's Pickles Bloody Mary Mix - www.mcclurespickles.com
I discovered this at Whole Foods a few weeks ago, since I've gone through six bottles. Got to give it to Verdi for giving me the tools to support my destructive habits. It's happy hour somewhere, drink up!!!
For The Dad Who Likes A Good Chick: Kluckr Chicken Wing Finding iPhone Application - www.kluckr.com
Looking for Chicken Wings? There's an app for that...
For The Dad Who's a Total Tool: Leatherman Skeletool - www.leatherman.com
Every dad needs one of these. It's like a necessity. Like football sunday, or classic car shows, LeatherMan = Dad.
For the Clear Headed Dad - Headblade Shaving Kit - www.headblade.com
If you're daddy's got a Homer Simpson dome, it's a good time to get him some protective gear. A shaving kit and shaver made specifically for baldies. Daddy will be proud, and hopefully, it's not hereditary...
