Weekend Bag: Best Made Co.

Speakers: Marshall Stanmore

Vintage look, with modern amenities. The Stanmore is a compact active stereo speaker that yields clean and precise sound even at high levels, and what’s more, Stanmore’s classic design is a throwback to the golden days of rock ’n roll, and its analogue interaction knobs give Dad custom control of his tunes. He can hook it up wirelessly via the latest version of Bluetooth®, featuring aptX technology®, use the RCA input to plug in a record player, or simply connect the coil cord (included) to his phone.

Record Player: U-Turn Audio Orbit Special Turntable

If your Pops is a true-blue music aficionado, then this is the go-to gift for him: the Orbit Special Turntable offers expressive and uncompromised playback from its beautiful hardwood base (in your choice of flat-cut maple or rift walnut). This model features the award-winning Ortofon 2M Red cartridge, which delivers open and dynamic sound without coloring Dad’s music (that’s because the gimbal tonearm is balanced for accurate tracking and low distortion, and the turntable features internal anti-skate and adjustable counterweight).

Shaving Kit: D R Harris Arlington Shaving Kit

Here’s something swell for the well-groomed gentleman. D R Harris’ Arlington Kit is imbued with a unique fragrance that is a clean combination of refreshing citrus and mossy fern tones. There’s scented Arlington Soap comes in a mahogany bowl, luxurious Aftershave Milk, a razor which fits Mach 3 blades, and a badger hair brush which makes this the ultimate shaving gift set. Made in the U.K., this kit comes in a designer-stamped presentation box that’s sure to please even the most discerning of dads.

Toolbox: Best Made Co.

Available in classic red, drab olive, and matte black, this toolbox not only looks great it’s designed with busy dads in mind. Working closely with a legendary American metal fabricator, Best Made designed a toolbox with a front-loading door so the user can access all tools inside without having to grapple with the top tray. The powder-coated toolbox is handmade, and hand-spot-welded in the USA.

Camp Knife: Gear Patrol Store Horse Brand Camping Knife

Inspired by traditional Scandinavian knives of the past, a narrow Scandi Grind runs the length of the cutting edge for ease of sharpening in the field. At just under seven inches, this compact Coney Island Camping Knife may be small, but it will stand up to a series of tasks thanks to its subtle drop-point design and a sturdy full-tang construction. Each knife is offered with an optional leather sheath – which are just as durable and beautiful as the blade – hand-made in Brooklyn by Commoner & Co.
