OVER at Rustan’s, Father’s Day did not end yesterday as it has a slew of events celebrating Dad all the way to July.
On all the weekends until July 8, gentlemen shoppers can get free grooming by Philips, shoe shining by Crept Protect, enjoy a mini golf game by Jack Nicklaus, indulge in a quick massage, or enjoy sample artisan hot and cold drinks at the Coffee and Beer bars. These are open to all shoppers, with no minimum purchase required. What more, for those who bought new dress shirts and/or handkerchiefs and other items, Rustan’s is offering free personalization or monogramming for new purchases.
These will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. in the following Rustan’s branches: June 23-24 for Rustan’s Shangri-La; June 30-July 1 for Rustan’s Alabang; and July 7-8 for Rustan’s Gateway.
Need a last-minute gift? Rustan’s suggests a linen scarf from AD&C 1956, a fedora hat from Dorfman Pacific, and swim shorts from Bluemint for the traveler, as well as New Balance or Hacket for the perfect pair of sneakers. Travelers need shades and one can get 10% off on select sunglasses from Rayban until June 30.
For the man with a soft spot for cheesy humor, choose novelty items that are also practical: a Buxton wallet with multiple pockets for cards and whatnots, a Discovery Shop jewelry box for prized possessions, a Steve Madden antique money clip, and a Tateossian dice cufflinks.
The drinking man will like a flask from Espacio Handmade, shot glasses with leather cases from Kikkerland, and a Super Dad mug (with its own cape!) from Thumbs Up.
Snazzy dressers will appreciate shirts from Ascot Chang, Pedro del Hiero, or Ricardo Preto, with a few accessories such as pockets square from Tie Bar a belt from Pedro del Hiero, or even shoes from Allen Edmonds thrown in. The laid back dad will appreciate shirts from Faconnable, a crossbody bag from Adolfo Dominguez, a distressed leather bracelet from Thompson London, or a supple pair of suede oxfords from Kurt Geiger.
