Father's Day Gift Guide
My dad has always prided himself on what he views as his great fashion sense. Fortunately, he’s had me to explain to him that no, that extremely loud Hawaiian shirt simply will not do, or that those shoes most certainly do not go with those pants, and that perhaps he isn’t quite as fashionable as he thinks he is! I’m sure there are more than a few style-challenged dads out there, but remember, just because your dad can’t match his shoes with his pants, doesn’t mean he’ll be content with the fail-safe socks and undies combo, this Father’s Day. So the FashioNZ team is here to help. We’ve gone on the hunt to find the coolest (and most fashionable) gift ideas for your dad this Father’s Day. We can’t promise you’ll break the bad-dressing habits of a life time, but hey, it’s a start!

Nicholas Jermyn is the perfect destination to pick up something stylish and classic for your dad. Inspired by the famous Jermyn Street in London, Nicholas Jermyn shirts are designed in New Zealand, and only limited quantities of each are made to ensure exclusivity. There's a fantastic range of shirts available, but in particular, we love these Nicolas Jermyn 5cents cufflinks ($69.00), featuring the old five cent design – a great gift idea with a Kiwiana twist!
We love this cool bird-print t-shirt ($80) from Trix and Dandy – the perfect weekend essential for spring for the fashion-conscious dad. Check out the Trix and Dandy website for a list of stockists.
We also love this Mazzoni boxed Tie and Tie Pin set ($39.99), available at Farmers. No more will your dad’s tie be flapping around all over the place – we’re sure he’ll thank you for that!
