Shop for your dad based on his celebrity double (‘cause he’s totally like Kanye, right?)
Needless to say, in spite of their often ultra-simple wish lists (read: beer and socks), dads are the best and deserve just as much parental-day lovin’ as their other halves. So we thought we’d pay homage to our daddies dearest by channeling some of our favorite celebrity dads and their hypothetical Father’s Day must-haves. Keeping in mind, of course, that your dad probably has no idea who any of the following are—except the occasional offhand reference to “Cane West, yo yo yo.”*
*Granted, this may just be our dads.
Alright, so your dad would probably never be caught dead in a crystal-covered balaclava. And the closest thing he owns to leather jogging pants is a circa-1973 Mick Jagger Halloween costume (long banned by Mom). But there’s something about the way North melted Kanye’s I-go-hard façade into a diaper-bag wielding daddy that we see in a lot of dudes-turned-dads (who knew, underneath the Versace-clad exterior is a total softy?). The Kanye Dad can still enjoy the finer things in life without sacrificing his super-dad status, so opt for aged-to-perfection liquor in a bottle that’ll look great in his at-home bar, a pair of headphones he won’t misplace on a biweekly basis, or some statement man-jewelry to compliment his killer wardrobe (we repeat: not a balaclava).
