Well if you haven't noticed by now, a Male Renaissance has been going full swing for the last few years now. They've become demanding and not complacent to just accept what the women in their lives propose. With a wider array of products & styles offered and more attention being paid to them in stores, men are gradually coming into their own in regards to voicing what he wants. Of course, that doesn't make it any easier to decide what to snag for him this Father's Day, or does it? If there's more to offer then there's more to choose from. This means that instead of the time-honored 'dad' tie or three pack of dress socks, the options for dad this Father's day suddenly have more depth, range and the 'oh-so-overlooked' cool factor.
Who knows this all too well but the Accessories Council. Their top Father's Day picks are walks in updated classics, modern notions and those little accents that men have gravitated towards in order to differentiate their collective roars from the rest of the pride.
