If you are panicking that Father’s Day is now just five days away and you still haven’t found that perfect gift for your dad, or your baby daddy, I have one last gift idea for you. If the man in question is a fan of Quadrophenia, The Small Faces, The Who, Paul Weller or even Bradley Wiggins, he may well be a fan of anything to do with Mod Culture, and that could mean that Ben Sherman has the answer to your gift needs.
Ben Sherman has been a British Mod Style institution since 1963. With it’s range of buttoned up shirts, grandad style t-shirts, slim fitting trousers and polo tops, Ben Sherman epitomises the look beloved of ‘the Modernists’ aka the Mods, a look that has had a revival in recent years and found a completely new audience.
Debenhams has a great range of Ben Sherman polo tops and t-shirts available this year, along with a fabulous competition where you could win £500 to spend on Ben Sherman products. Many of the products are currently available at 20% off discounted prices, so you can find something that is a stylish and affordable bargain.
Here are a few of the products I would chose.
1. Love the idea of the red stripe with deep indigo jeans and desert boots. Would look great with a Harrington Jacket worn over the top too.
2. A grandad style top in Mod fit, this is just such a cool top. Would also look great with indigo jeans, or white shorts for a great holiday look.
3. This is just a classic. Crisp white, buttoned down collar, so smart and perfect for that Paul Weller look – just add a black blazer and pump up the volume on ‘A Town Called Malice.’
What’s your dad’s signature style? What will you be getting him this year?
