Johnnie O

With Father’s Day just around the corner, most of us find ourselves scrambling to find the perfect gift. The one that for once, won’t end up in the closet with all of the techie gadgets he couldn’t quite master, power tools there were nary a use for and cardigans that were better suited for Mr. Rogers than your unabashedly chic dad (or husband). That’s why this year, we are grateful to have stumbled upon California-based Johnnie-O, and all of its “west coast preppy” charm. The brainchild of one of People Magazine’s Most Eligible Bachelors and brother to big screen superstar Chris, Johnnie O’Donnell creates timeless, wearable and modern duds under his moniker, and we can’t get enough of them. Ranging from polos, to tees, to belts, hats, golf skins and even boxers, Johnnie-O delivers bold colors blended with classic looks that your man will actually enjoy wearing (no arguing that his faded frat tee is so much more comfortable). With a “preppy golfer meets laid-back surfer” vibe, Johnnie-O is slick enough for the links and the club, while remaining comfortable enough for a casual Sunday with the kids. There are even mini-me versions for your little PGA pro in training, and too-cute-for-words looks for women. At $21-$56 a pop, you can afford to outfit your entire brood…in every color.
