The dapper dad’s got it all: the right suit, polished shoes and a classic watch that shames guys 20 years his junior. He’s the man who pays attention to his appearance — even after having children — and understands that timelessness trumps trends.
So how do you shop for a guy who’s got all his bases covered? You take a risk and surprise him with the unexpected. Remember: big risks have bigger rewards. Here are the style gifts to take his game from “nice” to “wow.”
