Summer Picks For Your Guy

It always seems like besides the holidays, this is the time of year for gift giving. Between weddings, birthdays, mother’s day, father’s day, etc. there’s always something to be buying for someone. My husband’s birthday was last weekend and while he has his own style (that I love!), I still like to think that I have a little input into it :) I definitely help the final decision process. He didn’t ask or want anything, but of course I wasn’t going to let his birthday slide by without any gifts (I LOVE gift giving!) He’s the type of shopper that doesn’t buy often, but when he does, it has to be something he really loves and will get a lot of use out of. So I’d thought I’d share a few of his favorite items that would make perfect gifts for your guy or even an upcoming father’s day gift!

Two of his favorite jeans are the J Brand ‘Kane’ Slim Fit and APC ‘New Standard‘. From what I’ve heard, they’re comfortable, don’t fade and last a really, really long time! My husband works in tech, so the dress code is pretty casual- he lives in his chambray button-up or striped tee most days. They’re versatile, classic pieces that I think everyone should have in their closet. For shoes, he wears a similar version of these Nike sneakers, but mixes it up with his favorite pair of Rivieras, especially on the weekends. A few of his can’t-live-without details are: Jack Rogers products, a cool bow tie and backpack.

A big thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post.

My boyfriend, Sean, LOVES those Nikes … He has the gray pair that are shown here and just got a red/royal blue pair last weekend. They’re so easy to transition between business casual and just going out to lunch on the weekend. Loving this list!

Most of my husbands clothing looks like this – maybe with a smaller price point but still – love the style. He’s really into denim like button downs I think we’ve purchased him about 4 so far for this season (each with different prints on them).

Love all of this! It’s amazing how quickly a man can look pulled together just putting on a button down shirt. Effortless and dapper.

Love this post! Great ideas!! The rivieras link takes me to kids shoes, do you have a link for the adult ones, or does he just buy very large kids shoes? haha … Also the Jack Rogers goes to Jack Black products, are they the same?
Brilliant blog!! Thanks for all your fab information! :D

I got my husband a pair of the Kane J brand jeans. I love them! They are a perfect fit and wash. Great for a not so casual, but not super formal date night! :)

I bought my boyfriend the Nixon watch you (with the dark face and brown strap) for his birthday last November and he absolutely loves it. My boyfriend also works in tech and would definitely like the pieces you have included. Great post!
