For the man that gives so much, Father’s Day, Sunday 16th June, is the perfect opportunity to give something back, in gesture at least, with a gift from Huntsman.
The relationship we have with fathers is one so special, Huntsman feels privileged to have a role of confidante in the relationship between fathers and their daughters and sons, dressing dynasties since Henry Huntsman and Sons opened doors in 1849.
Huntsman offers an extensive selection of accessories and to help you pick something special for dad, we asked some of the fathers and sons at Huntsman to give us their favourite picks; gift ideas they’d love to give and receive!
What men wear is not limited to their clothes, but extend to scents. Because smelling good is in equal measure as important as looking good, Huntsman has developed four unique scents with Jo Malone. These fragrances are designed to compliment your wardrobe, whatever the occasion. For Summer, we particularly favour the light, citrus notes of our Assam and Grapefruit cologne. This fresh, contemporary palette pairs beautifully with lightweight cotton and linens, ideal for a dad planning a summer getaway.
Senior Client Manager David Goggins suggests making sure he has a fragrance for every occasion and treating your dad to our luxury Jo Malone gift set coffret, which includes all four fragrances in a bespoke hardwood display case, lined with Huntsman tweed.
“The great thing about these scents is that they’re designed to pair with whatever you have in your wardrobe; regardless of season or occasion! The coffret doesn’t only look great on a dressing table, it’s also an elegant way to prevent little hands from getting hold of your cologne!”
Rolex enthusiast dads get our attention with a bespoke Huntsman bangle. Huntsman has teamed up with Speedometer to design a unique bracelet inspired by the ring featured on the iconic watches and featuring the signature Huntsman claret. These bracelets are made from top quality marine steel 316L, are nickel free, hypoallergenic, water, scratch and temperature proof and are available in steel and black steel.
This black, Pebble Grain, leather billfold wallet is RFID protected to ensure your credit card stay safe from fraud; with 9 credit card Grosgrain pockets and coin pouch, it also features a removable credit card holder. Masculine, strong yet soft to the touch, and ageing gracefully. Inspired by our secret service connections, we hid behind their classic style a RF anti-hacking device to protect your credit cards.
From those who tend to potter in the garden to the ones traversing mountainsides, see that dad is properly attired with one of our signature flat caps, made in a series of exclusive Huntsman tweeds. These caps come in a series of complimenting iconic house checks and are available to shop online, or for a truly bespoke experience, bring your father to visit us and choose your own tweed to have a cap made especially for him.
Ralph Fitzgerald, our Cutter in Residence at W57th St New York thinks our flat caps are perfect for a dad who’s passionate about his tweeds.
“The rich colours and checks of our caps are great for tweed enthusiasts, either teemed with a favourite tweed blazer, or with an overcoat when the weather gets colder- perfect for these freezing New York winters!”
Or for the dad who prefers to be seen out and about in town, a sophisticated Kishorn cashmere scarf if a beautiful accessory. Made from 100% cashmere, this scarf offers warmth, whilst being wonderfully light, making it great for all seasons, slipped inside a covert coat, or with a blazer for cooler evenings. Available in green, calico, grey, navy and black. We think the natural tones of calico work particularly well for summer.
Co-Head Cutter Dario Carnera picks the bespoke Huntsman slippers, which are handcrafted in the UK. Sumptuous enough to slip on for a dinner party, or a comfortable night in next to the fire, with satin cushioned quilted lining, these slippers are the ultimate private luxury.
“The slippers are a perfect present for those dads who like to throw a cocktail party at home! Especially ideal for those who like to style a smoking jacket for eveningwear.”
Our bespoke slippers are made to order, so bring your dad to visit us at 11 Savile Row and let him choose for himself the perfect cashmere tweed and fitting embroidery. The greatest surprise to dad will be the level of thought and care that goes into making something totally bespoke for him.
Whether it’s picking out that perfect gift, or finding a special garment for dads to cherish for years to come, come and surprise us at the shop and let Huntsman help you celebrate your Father on June 16th.
