With Father's Day on the horizon (June 15) we have been drawing together some of our favourite menswear items which we think would make perfect gifts for discerning dads of all ages. We've found ourselves a little bit spoiled for choice, it's been tricky to narrow down our great range of menswear and accessories, but here's a few things to get you started...
This year's biggest menswear trend story sees heritage, country styles making themselves at home in the modern city. Evoking imagery of a cricket tea, famous detective novels and upper class safari holidays, many of our ranges embrace classic tailoring, natural colours, fine craftsmanship and dandy detailing.
Fashion conscious Fathers will love our beautiful footwear from heritage rich, British bootmaker, Sowerby. Their stunningly crafted, stitch-welted leather Dealer Boots have retained the same high standards of craftsmanship and superb fit throughout their 87 year history. Equally at home in a country pub, at the office or in the city these boots are sure to be a much loved wardrobe essential for years to come.

Always a favourite, top brand Barbour is a go-to for stylish menswear. Kit Dad out in their smart-casual FourfoldLongsleeve Rugby Shirt, a stylish, versatile jersey shirt that will see him comfortably through long summer days and winter chill. Alternatively, Barbour's Gingham Laundered Shirt is an on-trend distressed look option for Dad's who like to make a statement!

Much loved countrywear brand Joules continue the heritage theme. Amongst their bright collection of inspired and original clothing you will find beautiful knitwear in crèmes and soft pastels. One of our favourites is the Harrington Jumper; with its undeniable cricketing style it is right on this year's key trend. Sporty Dad's will appreciate the Just Joules Men's Polo, available in Navy, or Pink if you think Dad's bold enough!
We also stock a fun and quirky range of Joules accessories which are ideal for smaller gifts. Their cheeky but charming Crown Joules range is a colourful collection of boxer shorts featuring bold, country inspired prints. Alternatively, the 'OldTrout' Leather Gift Set includes a wallet and iPhone case with an aged effect trout embellishment.

For dads on-the-go our range of travel bags, garment bags and briefcases would make a stylish and practical gift. Our collection of leather Barbour bags boast high quality and durability with subtle and thoughtful detailing. Busy Dads will love their dark brown leather Briefcase with understated logo and buckle detail and the Garment Bag is perfect for overnight business trips.
Ideal for adding finishing touches, Tootal Scarves are a striking accessory with which to make a statement or add flair to a simple outfit. In bold designs and colours these celebrity favourites will ensure Dad's great sense of style never goes unnoticed!
Our shooting stockings and classic hats will find favour with more traditional Dad's. Let him unleash his patriotic side with Coxmoore's Union Jack Shooting Stockings in Cardinal Red. Alternatively, he can dress to impress in Olney's Newbury Felt Hat, in a rich Sable shade.

Further finishing touches can be added with our range of country Ties, Hankies and Cufflinks. Our printed silk ties will add country style to an outfit and our handkerchiefs are another perfect accessory for creating a heritage look – Barbour's paisleyHandkerchiefs would create a bold, dapper look peeking out of a breast pocket.
