Father's Day: Fashion, grooming and gifts for him
Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there! We’ve got inspirational gifts galore, stylish sneakers, on-trend T-shirts and taming products for those who’ve garnered impressive lockdown beards
A stiff office dress code demanding a sharp three-piece suit and high-shine brogues is a thing of the past. Most modern businesses and start-ups favour more relaxed apparel, like these stylish sneakers. The brainchild of cousins Charly and Lockie Cunningham – who dreamt up the brand during a five-month backpacking expedition around South America – SANS MATIN sneakers are designed in London and handmade in Medellin, Colombia.
Created for men and women in search of luxurious yet comfortable and affordable sneakers, they’re versatile options, ideal for the office, bar or restaurant. Even better, SANS MATIN has considered its carbon footprint: all leathers, fabrics, footbeds, laces and packaging is sourced within two hours of the Medellin factory; sustainable shoe boxes and care cards are made from 100 per cent recycled cardboard and shoe bags are produced from recycled cotton and recycled PET.

If you’ve been busy cultivating a mighty lockdown/isolation beard, it might be time to tame that beast. Haoma Organic Soothing Beard Oil is a wonder product; a nourishing blend of organic essential oils, including sweet almond, myrrh, lemon and rosemary, it is invigorating, promotes healthy beard growth, and leaves a luxurious shine. Should you decide to dust off the razor and go clean-cut, it’s also a calming face treatment post-shave, soothing skin cuts and burning, as well as restoring balance to skin.
