A World Of Shoes
If your old man's shoe collection is looking a little too old for comfort, it may be time to revamp his shoe rack and break his footwear hoarding habit. Bring him to SuperKicks the newest sneaker store in Mumbai with some of the hottest sneakers on the block. It doesn’t hurt that there is a café too inside. Let him choose from some cult sneaker brands like Nike, Adidas, Asics, Puma, Reebok, New Balance, Vans, Converse and Fila. Then there are blockbusters like Nike Air Jordan, Adidas Ultraboost, Nike Vapormax and others along with bestsellers like Nike Cortez, Adidas Stan Smith, Asics Gel Lyte, Converse Chuck-Taylors, Puma Lows, New Balance 574, Reebok Classic, Vans, etc. But what we are most thrilled about is Ylati the Italian Mafia of kicks. This most avant-garde Italian sneaker brand has won a fan base that includes Craig David, Jay Sean and Rudimental.

An Extraordinary Whisky For An Extraordinary Man
And if you don't know his sizes or his favourite styles, you can always splurge on a bottle of sophisticated whisky. A personalized bottle of the exceptionally blended Johnnie Walker Black, created using only whiskies aged for a minimum of 12 years from the four corners of Scotland, is the best bet for the occasion. It has an unmistakably smooth, deep, complex character and is an unrivalled masterpiece.
The key to taking a suit to the next level is a good pair of cuff links. These monogrammed cuff links will make him feel like a million bucks, but without having to cost you an arm and a leg. He will love the craftsmanship and finesse of this hand-crafted cufflink made from sterling silver. All you have to do is simply select any two letters and the Bro Code will personally hand craft them on to the cufflinks and package them in a beautiful black box. Wouldn’t that be the perfect gift for your special man?
Two things all dads love: biographies and the Beatles. So what better gift to give your own non fiction-lovin’ papa than this biography of Allen Klein, the Fab Four’s controversial manager (who also managed the Rolling Stones, the Who, the Kinks, Sam Cooke, and Donovan), written by a former Rolling Stone editor? Nothing is better, that’s what.
Availability: Allen Klen – The man who bailed out The Beatles, made The Stones and transformed Rock & Roll is available on: www.amazon.com
