Accessories Council Father's Day Gift Picks 2014


Father's Day is just a few days away, so if you're still searching for gift ideas, check out these Accessories Council top picks! The Accessories Council recently unveiled their Father's Day favorites at Gibson Guitar Studios, hosted by Accessories Council Chairmen, Frank Zambrelli, along with lifestyle expert, Pamela Pekerman.

You'll find an assortment of dress shirts in checks and stripes, and ties in plaids, polka dots and stripes, curated by Esquire exclusively at Men's Wearhouse. The shirt & tie collection allows you to mix up colors and patterns and build on your personal style. SoxxyAir Compression Socks are great for travel and available for men and women, like this Nighthawk ($35) pair. They help increase blood flow, reduce jetlag and muscle soreness. The Jason oxfords ($119.99) from Dr. Scholl's Original Collection in velour suede are super comfortable, with a Memory Fit(R) foam cushioning insole.

David and Young Linen Stripe Fedora ($35) is perfect for summer, and an accessory I would totally wear myself! If you're looking for pocket squares, check out Vasi Moda "B" Squares ($105), made of 100% Italian silk twill, with vibrant, distinctive designs. The "B" Squares can also be worn as wrist ties, purses, neck scarves and hair ties. I love how men's accessories have become so versatile and multi-functional, appealing to both men and women! You can find luxury eyewear like Oliver Peoples at ILORI & Optical Shop at Aspen. Sunglasses is always a must-have accessory and you can never have too many pairs! Auburn Jewelry creates custom cufflinks from skull & crossbones  ($140) to monogrammed ones ($145) in a variety of colors. 

One of my favorite accessories that I previewed is the Jack + Mulligan Dylan Dopp Kit ($70) for storing your at-home or travel toiletries. It's crafted from water-repellent 18oz canvas with a waterproof nylon lining to protect the bag from any spills inside. The color blocking, leather accents and antique brass hardware give it a dash of modern elegance. 

I love the scent of leather, especially in the form of the J Fold Folding Carrier ($58) in Stone. This slimfold is made of 100% vegetable-tanned leather from Italy and has a super-slim construction and long-lasting durability. The wooden tray it is packaged in is also a great place for keeping your wallet/keys at home. 

To round out these featured top ten Accessories Council gifts is Vince Camuto Homme Eau de Toilette for men (1.7 oz - $57, 3.4 oz - $75). This seductive fragrance is part woodsy with notes of cedar and pine with touches of comforting lavender and just-sweet-enough juniper.
