Check out our Father’s Day 2022 gift guide:
Kicking off our Father’s Day 2022 gift guide is Tumi’s coveted selections. Functional yet stylish, Tumi has everything you need in an everyday bag. For dads who appreciate an organised companion, consider the Alpha Bravo Navigation (RM2,650) and Harrison William (RM2,710) for their designated laptop and phone compartments. In addition, the Harrison William backpack includes a built-in USB port to charge their cell phones on the go. If you’ve got a travel-loving dad, complete his journey with a sleek yet spacious Alpha Bravo Mason Duffel (RM3,140). It’s lightweight, comfortable and great for storage. We love how it features an expandable shoe compartment with a water-resistant lining.
Tiffany & Co
If your dad appreciates cufflinks, surprise him with the perfect pair by Tiffany & Co. The Bean cufflinks by Elsa Peretti are a unique way to incorporate the classy and functional accessory as a finishing touch. Ideal for any formal occasion, the sculptural bean is a definite conversation starter. Choose between yellow gold and sterling silver. Fun fact: Designed in the early ’70s and known for her distinctive sculptural shapes, Elsa Peretti’s iconic Bean design is a symbol of life’s origins.
It’s time to treat your dad to some TLC. Lush’s Father’s day collection is quirky, adorable, yet rejuvenating. On our list is the Superdad eye pad that includes soothing ingredients such as yerba mate, carrot juice, saffron and aloe vera to pamper their tired eyes after a long day. The best part? It looks like a superhero mask too. Another highlight includes the Big Moustache (RM 45) soap inspired by Salvador Dali’s famous ‘stache. Fresh, floral, and woody, the charcoal soap is suitable for the face and body while leaving that fresh aftershave scent.

Famed for its quintessential silhouettes, Sandro is a favourite among many for its comfortable everyday clothing. Dedicated to dads who love a cosy sweater, consider adding Sandro’s knitted pullovers to the closet. Our favourites include the knitted cardigan with minimal white-camel stripe edging and the wool cardigan with S embroidery. Style it with a simple white tee or a button-down shirt, and he’s good to go. If he’s into stripes, a collared button-down shirt will do the trick, especially when it’s in a navy hue to easily match his everyday palette.

For those who crave a comfortable and lace-less option, consider adding the VLogo Chain Loafers to the collection. Thanks to the antique brass chain ornament, the loafers add a classy finish to your fit. Plus, it’s perfect for dinner dates and gala events all year long.
Kelvin Morales on Dia Guild
So your dad has nailed his daily workwear style. But when it’s time to let loose on the holiday, he’s just cruising around in his stay-at-home shirts — which is no good for the family pics. Get him this casual shirt designed by experimental Filipino fashion designer Kelvin Morales. The Phalaenopsis (it’s an orchid) barong is a modernised version of the traditional Filipino barong. Made from silk cocoons, with hand-embroidered patchwork by the local artisans in the Philippines, this versatile shirt will be his favourite piece to pack for future holidays.
