We used to tease our dads about their practicality when they would point to their faded blue jeans and say, "I've been wearing these since college," while they beamed with pride. It seemed the longer something lasted, the more satisfaction they felt. Now that we're older and wiser, we've realized that we could learn a thing or two from Dad's ways. On top of teaching us how to not throw like girls and how to hang shelves that don't threaten the lives of passerby, they've taught us how to do what we love most: shop! When buying gifts for the special men in our lives, we now look for items that are not only stylish but also functional and durable. We love checking out Jack Spade, a store that offers men's items with honest, thoughtful design and practical purpose, for guaranteed-to-be-loved gifts. Jack Spade began making bags using waxed-cotton fabrics and heavy canvas textiles that have proved utilitarian enough for hardware stores, and have continued to make functional and stylish apparel with a simple aesthetic using materials that improve with age and gain character with each use. Just in time for Father's Day, Jack Spade is teaming up with Refinery29 to give one lucky reader a $1,500 shopping spree. While you can't go wrong with anything you buy here, Jack Spade has compiled a man-approved Father's Day shopping roundup that includes stylish iPad covers, duffel bags, and handmade ties that will show your dad how much you care, and that you've been listening all these years.
