Toby Bateman knows a thing or two about men's style. As the buying director for global fashion e-tailer MR PORTER, we knew he'd be the perfect guy to dish handy hints on buying for dad, or any other man in your life, ahead of Father's Day this Sunday. From chic leather carry-alls to sporty but relaxed tees, MR PORTER knows how to cater for hard-to-buy-for men in the most stylish way possible. Read up and pass it on...
What would be your top 5 picks for a Father’s Day gift for the quintessential Aussie dad?
A pair of Orlebar Brown swim trunks — tailored, structured with ease, and a flattering short altogether. It will make dad feel like James Bond, or at least a real guy version of Daniel Craig who will be seen sporting the ‘Bulldog’ length in the upcoming Skyfall. A leather holdall for a weekend away, dad deserves both. A white Oxford shirt — Thom Browne's is new classic, a regular staple. Oliver Peoples Sunglasses — a brand to rely on for classic mid century frames in modern colourways. Designed in LA and made in Italy, Oliver Peoples is a perfect combination for the Aussie dad with European sensibilities and beach on the mind. A weekend T-shirt — dads need a bit of play, especially with the kids.
