Below we have lined up five gift options for your old man, including accessories and shoes in relation to the current trends for up-to-date looks.

We even help with what to pair these gift ideas with too!

Sunglasses


Summer’s here! For the best Father’s day gift, shade his eyes with a pair of these fancy sunglasses. For an updated retro look, pair a denim jacket with these Ray Ban black and gold metal-rimmed sunglasses.

With so many versatile, modern sunglasses available, you want to make sure he sticks with the trends. These stylish slim gold frames offer a fresh turn from the usual big-framed sunglasses and are incredibly lightweight.

Constructed with high shine black acetate and accompanying high shine gold metal arms, these Ray Bans have the green classic G15 sun shape lenses which offer 100% UV protection and absorb 85% of visible light.

Round, circular lenses are currently a celebrity-favourite. This trend reflects back to the seventies frames and nineties hip hop fashion. These are ideal for those with a narrow, squared face. Check out our guidance on which sunglasses best suit your face.

Adopt the Weeknd’s style, who paired his Levi denim jacket with Thom Browne’s gold-framed sunglasses and black lenses. Alternatively, if you think your father would appreciate some wider lenses, check out our complete guide to aviator sunglasses here.
