Refined taste

From elegant leather goods to exquisite timepieces, The Royal Exchange is home to an inspiring selection of Father's Day gifts

06 June, 2019

Treat Dad to something special this Father’s Day with a range of jewellery, watches, accessories and grooming products from The Royal Exchange’s exceptional collection of boutiques.

Cufflinks are a Father’s Day classic and he is sure to appreciate these stylish yet smart Essential Sartorial Cufflinks from Montblanc. The understated square steel design will go with any colour and look just as sharp when paired with a business suit as with formal eveningwear.

Speaking of business, if Dad’s old laptop case needs a sleek upgrade, the Small Mount Street Laptop Bag from Aspinal of London is just the ticket. Constructed from navy Saffiano leather, it is soft and tactile yet durable and its modern simple lines and nifty internal pockets make it both practical and stylish.

If his career is behind him and he is enjoying the freedom of retirement, what better way to record his travels than in a Bremont Adventurer’s Journal. From the British watch company that knows a thing or two about adventure, the luxury leather-bound book will lend gravitas to Dad’s musings, and will last for generations. So when it is picked up decades from now, his descendants may learn a thing or two from his wisdom.

You may not picture your dad as someone who requires pampering, but it’s
a well-kept secret that every man enjoys receiving high-quality grooming products. George Bamford knows this, and the English willow, oat and vetiver body wash from his Bamford Grooming Department is crafted with the finest natural ingredients and packaged in minimal, masculine designs that keep a low profile in a manly bathroom backdrop.

For something extra special, the IWC Pilot’s watch Le Petit Prince special edition gives a subtle nod to the cherished childhood tale by Antoine de St Exupéry, with an engraved prince on the case back. So it’s all business up front and the fun, magic and wonder of youth concealed underneath. Sound familiar?

All these wonderful gifts and more are available at The Royal Exchange.
