Stab Recommends: Father's Day Edition

There's a lot going on right now: 12-year-old girls are landing air reverses, Trump may have colluded with China, and Tik Tok just revealed their algorithm. 

None of these are reasonable excuses for not getting your dad a Father's Day present, but we'll skip the guilt trip and get right to some last-minute options for you. Thank goodness for overnight shipping!

Mollusk has quietly become every understated Rad Dad's favorite shop. The San Francisco institution (with well-loved Southern California retail arms) effortlessly synthesizes their folk art and Counter Culture vibes into classic California style. These rust-orange scallop trunks are, well, succulent. 

Buy a Theragun. Use it. Thank us later.

Find out the waist on your man's favorite trunks, sit down with Birdwell's custom trunk program, and design him a pair of signature boardies he'll probably want to be buried in. Guaranteed for life, and they only get better with age.

As you get older, it seems you become less interested in quantity and more in quality. For the dad that would revel in rocking the same pair of trunks day in, day out, the Roark Boatmans come purpose-built and packing a lifetime guarantee.

It's painful to watch old men wriggle to free themselves from modern front-entry and zipperless wetsuits. Tearing their poor rotator cuffs to shreds trying to escape from a fucking 3/2. However, few suit companies offer premium rubber in back-zip options. Feral's Yamamoto numbers are the warmest, most uncompromising back-zip suit we've found, and it's handsome as all hell.

Debuting in 2005 and inspired by our good friend Mick Fanning, these flops have stayed more than relevant for the past 15 years. For those who drink beer out of bottles, these are much more than a gimmick and prove awfully useful for scorching summer beach days where relief comes in the form of cold suds aplenty. These leather options are a slightly updated look and great for any dad, young or old.

A sworn-by essential in the Stab office, these are a no brainer. Pulverizing anything at the push of a button feels strangely empowering, and there's a reason these used liberally by bullet coffee drinkers (of which we recommend adding Laird’s superfood creamer). Great for pushing Pops towards lower blood pressure or a selfish excuse to buy a “gift” that you know you’ll use more than him, these are just plain great to have around.

For the Dad who enjoys spending his time under the sun, one should consider the JJF12 from Electric. With detachable sides that add an extra layer of protection from pesky UV rays, these look great and are trusted by Mr. Florence on all of his seafaring expeditions.
