Give dad some gifts we'll know he'll love...
SAXX Underwear Pro Elite- The Pro Elite is a quick-drying spandex that's a perfect base layer for any sport. The ideal underwear for any Summer activity.
Converse 1970s Chuck Taylor Sneaker-The Converse 1970s Chuck Taylor range has proven to be quite a success so far, selling out quickly around the world. A heavier canvas and additional rubber sole support give these classic sneakers a modern feel. A great casual Summer shoe that's totally worth it.
Saturday Surf NYC Beach Towel- I bought this towel a few months ago for a vacation and I swear by it. Besides the nice design and high quality cotton, this towel is enormous, making it perfect for those long days at the beach with friends.
Bulleit Bourbon- This is our go-to thanks to its reasonable cost, handsome bottle, and high rye content which gives it the rich complexity of something a bit more pricey. Your dad will love it.
Nike Fuel Band-Through a sports-tested accelerometer, Nike+ FuelBand tracks your daily steps and calorie burn. We want one and your dad will too.
Things Come Apart by Todd McClellan- The perfect coffee table book. Quite literally a series of images of classic daily "things" completely taken apart. A visual spectacle for those that tinker.
Eleven Rings by Phil Jackson- Whether you're a basketball fan or not, we can all appreciate that Phil Jackson coached both Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant to greatness. Through his own words get the full story behind Phil Jackson's eleven NBA championship rings. Just released.
Herschel Supply Company | Novel Canvas Duffle- The durable heavy-weight cotton canvas makes the Novel Duffle feel nice in hand, and durable on the road. Includes shoe pocket and full grain leather details. All black is a nice touch too.
Here's what we're suggesting you tackle this Summer in-between those days at the office...
1. Go on a Hiking Trip.
We're not talking about driving an RV a few miles outside the city and setting up shop for the weekend. We mean a full blown boots, bag, rationed food, get out there and sweat your ass off hiking expedition. Whether you're a city man or a straight up farm boy, there's something to be said about hacking it in the woods for a few days. Call it what you want, but it's good for the soul.
2. Build Something Out of Wood.
Seriously. Get in your car, go to the lumber yard and buy some wood. I spent last fall labouring over a kitchen table and found out there are few things in life that are more rewarding than using something everyday you built from your bare hands. Whether it's a bookshelf, a bird house or a fence, completing a carpentry project is on this Summer's checklist.
Do you ever have those days when you realize you haven't finished (or read) a book in a while? Us too. This summer we're going to up our reading game by picking the right books, starting with Eleven Rings by Phil Jackson. Our Top Summer Reads blog post is coming soon. Stay tuned.
4. Join a Team Sport.
Skip the gym and catch some rays this summer by joining a team sport. Whether it's your office beer league baseball roster or a beach volleyball squad, it's time to be in the sun and get active outdoors. Get comfortable in your SAXX Pro Elite to keep you supported and cool on those hot days.
5. Road Trip With The Guys.
We've all imagined packing up and driving off into the horizon, leaving whatever life we've carved out for ourselves (see Foster Huntington)... But then we realize how ridiculous that all sounds and carry on with whatever it is we do. We like to think a road trip presents itself as the next best option to totally abandoning any sense of responsibility, especially when joined by a friend of two. Time to hit the road, with friends, Jack Kerouac style.
