This year’s Highsnobiety Gift Guide is all about the presents that’ll make a difference in these new and strange times. From gifts that encourage connection with loved ones, to self-love suggestions you entirely deserve at the end of 2020.
If recent seasons have shown us anything, it's that dads have had their style game on lock for decades and we're only just realizing it. Sorry pops. From chunky dad sneakers through to technical hiking gear and knitwear that, previously, we wouldn't have looked twice at, our wardrobes are evolving to become one and the same with our literal forefathers.
While you may have reservations about this, one thing's for sure: it makes buying holiday gifts for dad a whole lot easier. In 2020 you can realistically cop something that you would like to unwrap and that passes as a viable holiday gift for dad. If he doesn't like it, you, the heir, are next in line for that Arc'teryx. With gifts for dad on the agenda, we hit streetwear and luxury retailer Slam Jam to get shopping.
Shop the best gifts for dad (or you) below.
Polo Ralph Lauren Cap
A dad classic, the Ralphy cap is one that's likely to sit atop his head for the rest of time. As such, it's the worthiest of worthy gifts.
Get him to burn that terrible wolf graphic fleece he wears every single holiday season and tell him to put this fleece jacket on by Stüssy instead. For the sake of all of the family.
The North Face Brown Label Mitten
Though he might not like to admit it, your pops has a soft side. Just like these mittens from The North Face's Brown Label line.
Carhartt WIP Michigan Coat
If your dad is the wood-chopping type, then a good accompaniment to the look is a classic cord Michigan coat from Carhartt.
AWAKE NY Flannel Shirt
Heavyweight Barbed Wire Flannel Shirt
Consider it like this. You may be looking at your future hand-me-downs with this list, so I'd recommend you pick wisely. A timeless flannel shirt by AWAKE NY is picking wisely.
What does a carabiner actually do exactly, you ask? Dad will know.
adidas' outdoor line has birthed some of its best sneakers of recent years, in my opinion. Case in point: the chunky SahaleX. Available here in a safe bet, blacked-out version.
Levi's 501 Denim Pants
Do we even need to explain why the iconic Levis's 501 jean is a dad's favorite? Yes, he's probably got a pair or three already, but you can really never have enough.
and Wander Tool Bag
A waterproof, reflective, polycarbonate-coated tool bag is the stuff of dad's dreams. And probably yours, too. You know what to do.
Stone Island Longsleeve Knit
Invest in a piece of fashion subculture history as old and storied as he is. Just don't tell dad that's the reason you bought it when he's opening it.
