Father’s Day Fashion Finds

Father’s Day is this Sunday, and for many, gifting dear ‘ol dad is a top priority in addition to sharing a fun-filled day to fête the big guy. With summer ahead, there’s a host of great gifts available around Newport that he’ll love and get great use out of whether on land or sea. The above picture is a smattering of fashionable finds from J. McLaughlin including their classic carry-all sail cloth duffle tote ($225), a distressed cotton belt with a skull and crossbones print ($45), a silk jacquard fabric belt ($55), and a pair of silk jacquard dopp kits (perfect for traveling dads, $68).

Think Alex and Ani owner and designer Carolyn Rafaelian only creates for women? Think again. The Miracle Necklace, a Father’s Day exclusive, features a medal of St. Christopher for protection paired with the Italian Horn that the company calls “a powerful amulet representing luck.” The original price is $98 but it’s on sale for $78 (online only, so if you need to ship a gift, done and done).

I also think the Newport Shipyard custom Thomas Bates 1-1/2″ reversible nylon strap belt from Newport Shipyard Outfitters ($24) is a fun find, and uniquely Newport–kind of apropos as Father’s Day is wedged in between the J Class Regatta this week and Bacardi Newport Sailing Week coming next week. And if dad is a denim dude, Laura Jean is offering 10% off purchases for pop now through June 19.
