Father’s Day Presents: Clothing for Him…And You!

There’s something charmingly androgynous about a girl borrowing a man’s clothing–whether you sleep in his Hanes t-shirt, wear your boyfriend’s perfectly distressed jeans, or borrow Dad’s leather jacket. Here’s a collection of Father’s Day gifts that are wearable and shareable!

Old School

A vintage t-shirt of his favorite band or a sweatshirt with his favorite sports team is a hip, inexpensive gift that will look great on you, too, like this Nirvana tee $19.99, pictured above. What are you saying with such a gift? You’re telling him that you understand him, which is what every man ultimately wants.

Classic

A men’s cardigan sweater is another guy gift you can both wear. If it fits him perfectly, it will be perfectly oversized for you! Check out this cozy Façonnable beauty above, in handsome navy from Nordstrom.

Or stick with a sporty yet luxurious cashmere hoodie, above, by Marc Jacobs, also from Nordstrom.

Cool

A fine leather jacket–be it couture or casual–will make Dad look like a million bucks, and you can wear it too! I’m absolutely obsessed with the Balmain calf-hair biker jacket above left, $5,655 at Bergdorf Goodman, as well as the Ferrari motorcycle jacket, above right, $1,870, also at Bergdorf Goodman. Hot. But you need not spend a fortune on a leather jacket. You can get a smokin’ deal on eBay, like the one below. It’s a Michael Kors bomber jacket, new with tags, which retails for $600 but is selling on eBay for $375. Not bad.

Be sure to read the item description very carefully with regard to size, style and materials. Make sure you check the seller’s return policy. A great idea is to have Dad try on a leather jacket in the stores before ordering a similar brand or style online. Also remember to review the seller’s ratings so you have a good idea as to their reputation on eBay. This is very important. If you know how to shop, you can save big bucks on eBay, where someone’s loss is Dad’s gain.
