Father's Day is approaching (it's 15th June - for those not watching the calendar intently).

If your household is anything like ours, then you'll appreciate that this isn't generally an event that is planned months in advance. It's also notoriously difficult to buy for.

What do you buy your husband from the children? or what do you buy your father himself?

I appreciate that we're talking our own book, but a silk tie really is a great present for a man, especially a Reef Knots handmade tie. As you're probably aware, all our silk ties are delivered beautifully gift boxed, you don't need to worry about sizing, and they're probably the best tie he'll ever own. Stitched by hand, screen-printed by hand and a different proposition from the everyday striped or plain tie.

He may not wear a tie everyday like he used to, but when he does, he wants it to be a good one. Men always prefer quality over quantity. So this Father's day, why not treat him to some of our sailor-made style.
