Father's Day Gift Guide
Remember those choose your own adventure books from when you were a kid? You'd read a few pages, be asked a question and then get to decide where the story goes next. Dads are kind of like those books. No two are the same and each takes his kids on a different, exciting adventure. When it comes to buying dad a Father's Day tie, select one that fits his own unique personality and adventure. Is he a sports fanatic, a big kid, a thrill seeker? Choose your type of dad below and you'll find a tie that's just right for him.
Choose your dad:
The Sports Fan
Your dad is the ultimate sports fan. Football, baseball, basketball, hockey, college ball. He never misses a game and his team is like a member of the family. If this is your dad, get him a striped tie in his team colors, plus matching game day socks. (This may mean purchasing two pairs of socks so he can mix and match and represent both colors.)
If a suit and tie is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of dad, he's probably a business dad. He has vast collection of neckties already, but looks forward to new additions every Christmas, birthday and Father's Day. Keep him dapper with our exclusive line of Regent Morris Neckwear®. These handsome ties are made from blended materials like silk, wool, cotton and linen.
From his phone to his tablet to his watch to his glasses, this dad has all the latest gadgets. His job is probably in a related field, too. That may, however, mean a more laid back work environment. Keep him looking as trendy as his job with a denim necktie. Even if a tie isn't required for work, it's a great add on to an everyday, casual look.
The Young At Heart
This dad is hip and cool, even if he's the only one who thinks so. He's just one of the kids and knows more about pop culture, the latest lingo and social media than his children do. A dad this hip stays on top of the latest fashion trends, too. Shop skinny ties in a 2- or 2.5-inch width for your cool dad. It's what all the young trendsetters like him are wearing these days.
Have a dad who's always willing to try something new? Pastimes may include whitewater rafting, skydiving or spelunking. Thrill seeking dads need a surprise, and that's not a necktie. But oh, what a surprise a bow tie would be! Look for self-tie styles so he can cross "learning to tie a bow tie" off his high-speed bucket list.
The Sentimental Soul
This is the dad that wears his heart on his sleeve. He has family photos in his wallet and a stick figure family on his car. Make this dad a one-of-a-kind creation with a solid white necktie decorated by the kids. Our solid polyester ties are the perfect material for fabric crayons, markers or paint (available from your local craft store). See our how-to tutorial on decorating dad a tie.
Growing up with this dad, the "as long as your live under my roof" threat doesn't work because there's rarely a roof over your head. Camping, fishing, hunting; the outdoors is where you and dad really live. If this is your dad, get him a camo necktie this Father's Day. When he finally does have to head inside and go to work, at least he'll be able to bring a bit of the outdoors in.
If it's broken, this handy dad can fix it. Pastimes with Mr. Fix It include repairing a leaky sink, changing the oil on the car and going to the hardware store. Handy dads might not wear neckties often (occupational hazard), so it's best to get him a smart timeless pattern that will look great on the rare occasions he does, even if it's only a couple times a year.
Not only does this dad know all the best spots in town to grab a bite to eat, but he's an awesome cook, too. He's a master of the grill and no one can top his secret homemade pasta sauce. If your dad is a foodie, we recommend keeping things simple with a solid black necktie. It's our best color to hide those inevitable salsa and barbecue sauce stains.
