Ideal Wallet For Dad

The Family Man

He held your hand when you first learnt to walk. He heard you utter your first word. He accompanied you on your first day of school. And of course, he attended your graduation ceremony.

For the nurturing Family Man, get him a wallet that can hold a nice family photo. This should put a smile on his face every time he opens his wallet.

If you’re prepared to splurge, you may want to consider a billfold wallet by Lanvin. It has a generous clear photo window that should make any family photo look great.

The $280 price tag may be daunting but you’re really paying a premium for superb French craftsmanship. And the Lanvin label, of course.

The Over-Indulgent Dad

He’s largely responsible for the spoilt brat you’ve become. In his eyes, you can do nothing wrong even if you burn down the house. He spends all his energies ensuring that you’re provided for, making sure that you’re protected from the harsh realities of the outside world.

Father’s Day should be a good time for you to pay your dues and spoil your Over-Indulgent Dad. Pamper him with a luxurious lambskin wallet by Montblanc. This wallet is held in such high regard that Montblanc calls it Cashmere in Leather.

Your daddy will probably feel really guilty that you got him such an expensive present and buy you a brand new convertible to make it up to you.

The Giant

He’s feared and respected by many, including you. Most people envy you for having a father who’s somewhat larger than life. But the pressure of living up to his expectations or filling his shoes can sometimes be overwhelming. Not everyone is born an alpha male.

For the Giant, get him a credit card wallet from Cartier’s prestigious Pasha de Cartier line. Made in France using top grade cowhide, it looks sleek and stylish, oozing confidence and charisma just like its soon-to-be owner.

Handbags Style

Personally, I require a daily handbag large enough to fit a book (because you never know where you’re going to surprisingly end up stuck with nothing to do). However, I also like to have a handbag that I can wear on my shoulder to a formal event, not a bag that looks like an everyday handbag–but something with a little class and elegance. I have even bought handbags in sizes in between, because they were nice-looking or more professional looking (and still large enough to squeeze a small paperback into).

The most famous designer handbags are always the impressive and most expensive handbags, however they are virtually always the highest quality handbags as well. If you need a high quality handbag, and you have the means, designs handbags are well made, high quality and therefore long lasting. On the other hand, also many imitation designer handbags, these handbags look great and can last as long as the designer handbags of which they are knockoffs. Thus, when you choose an imitation designer handbag, you will save money and loose nothing but that tiny, designer brand-name label.

If you want many types of handbags for different, occasions, as I do, you may want to look out for regular handbags that are also well made, cheaper, and made in a plethora of different, attractive designs. It has been said that a woman’s handbag should always match her shoes. But with more generic or inexpensive handbags, because there are many more designs to choose from than even designer handbag companies can offer, you can even purchase handbags that will match your entire outfit perfectly–not just your shoes–this gives you a very impressive overall look.

A great way to purchase handbags is online. You can view everything from designs handbags to discount handbags right from the convenience of your own home. Do not go looking around from store to store when you can see a much larger selection online anyway. This way you can pick the handbag that best suits your needs as well as your personal taste much more quickly and efficiently.

Layering Fashion

Tanks and Camis Rock in Layers

If you want to layer your tank underneath a layer, choose a thin-gauge tank. Guys and gals can wear a thin tank well under most anything, especially button-downs and polos. Girls, keep an eye on the girls while wearing a super thin tank (monitor your buttons occasionally to avoid unwanted overexposure.) And you may want to choose a heavier-weight over layer. If you are particularly trendy, gals you can layer your tank or cami over a t-shirt (long or short sleeved.)

Start at the Bottom (for gals only please)
Let’s forget about layering our tops for just a moment. You want to be the coolest of cool and you already are queen at layering technique? So let’s start with the bottoms then. Choose some slick little leggings to wear underneath belted shorts or an itty-bitty miniskirt. Sounds perfect for that trip to the amusement park or out for pizza. Don’t forget your vintage t-shirt and comfy ballets!

For Ultimate Appeal Layer a Sweater Vest

There’s something about geeky gals and guys! The geeks have it when it comes to the sweater vest. Summer-weight sweater vests can be a cool layering item for the season. Layer your sweater vest over a dressy shirt or cool t-shirt for a crisp, classy and casual look. Triple layer with a t-shirt, shirt and vest on cooler days. Avoid looking overly particular and preppy by keeping your cuffs unbuttoned or maybe rolled-up, and unbutton any buttons at your collar.

Play with your Polos

Layer under your polo or layer over your polo? Which do you prefer? Over the sportier, bolder polo a sport coat, jacket or blazer with a minimalist print or fabric pattern is best. Over a classic polo, you can get a bit more exotic with the design in your topper. Under your polo, the sky’s the limit. We like to see color peeking out at the color, and not necessarily perfectly matching color. Keep the under t-shirt sleek and thin. Go for long or short sleeves. You are the stuff!

Kick it up a Notch: Shrugs, Cardigans and Sweaters

Dress things up a bit with layers under your shrug, cardigan or sweater for more formal occasions. Class, family events, dates, job hunting might be ideal for this layering style. Pick your pleasure and layer under it a more classic and tailored undershirt. Here it is usually best to keep your collar and cuffs under control and in place for a clean-cut, classic appearance. Gals, sound a bit to stuffy for your taste? Try layering a shrug, or pseudo-cardigan over-top a cool t-shirt or sexy camisole. Guys, pick a funny t-shirt (or an intellectual one) here at OldCrappyTee.com and place it under a sweet cardigan and be the receiver of many compliments.

Gray Hair

The evolutionary imperative selected dark hair without a single gray strand in it because gray hair subliminally signalled “old age.”

However, within an urban environment, gray hair could also translate as “money” and thus could appeal to the nurturing instincts of young females of child-bearing age.

Looking at the matter from Edward Wilson’s “Sociobiology” perspective, gray hair put the young females in a bind by broadcasting two conflicting signals simultaneously — “damaged genes” and “wealthy protector.”

These days, in this age of international terrorism, nuclear proliferation, outsourcing, downsizing, bird-flu and global warming, perhaps the “nurturing” aspect of gray hair is winning the subliminal argument.

Here is Taylor Hicks, the winner of the fifth round of American Idol contest, and his prematurely gray hair.

Did you know that a total of 60 million viewers voted for him? That also means 60 million votes for gray hair, hurray! It’s in for sure.

And then there’s Anderson Cooper of CNN, a very energetic and serious young (38yrs) professional with a “nurturing” signal.

There are a lot of brainy creative women who for quite some time showed up in public with prominent gray hair as well. Writer Susan Sontag, for example. Or the singer Emmylou Harris, 59. It did not hurt their career one tiny bit.
