Father’s Day is this Sunday the 18th of June and if a busy schedule has had you scrambling for last minute gift ideas for your father, Augustman has you covered with some epic (but affordable) gift ideas spanning accessories, fashion, technology, watchmaking and grooming categories curated to meet the desires of the most discerning man in your life.
Father’s Day Gift for the Survivalist: Dyson Zone Absolute+, $1,399
Delivering high fidelity, immersive audio with ultra-low distortion and an impressive frequency range, these Dyson Zone headphones are result of six years of research by Dyson, engineered to produce exceptional sound quality while purifying the surrounding air, combating city noise and pollution. With up to 50 hours of playback, advanced noise cancellation, and faithful audio reproduction, every note and word can be heard with exceptional clarity. Furthermore, remember the time when your father was the one who left the safety of home to make food runs during that nasty Covid pandemic that killed 6 million worldwide? Dyson Zone’s innovative filtration system and air delivery mechanism actively purify the air as you wear them. The compressors in each ear-cup draw air through dual-layer filters, capturing 99% of particle pollution as small as 0.1 microns. A potassium-enriched carbon filter specifically targets acidic gases associated with city pollution, such as construction fumes and stale air in public transportation systems. Furthermore, its advanced Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) system with eight built-in microphones, can reduce the sound of the city by up to 38 dB, meaning your father can “rest his eyes” in front of the television in greater comfort and piece.

Pair His Sand Havana Suit with Tod’s Slip-On, $1050
Created for the summer season as a leisure shoe par excellence, the Tod’s Spring-Summer 2023 menswear slip-on is characterised by a soft silhouette and minimal clean design. The sole in rubber and raffia is covered with distinctive rubber pebbles which are also on the heel, making these slip-on suitable for a casual look, while the upper recalls that of a classic style loafer or slip-on thus retaining a more traditional appearance. The functional lightweight loafer that combines a rubber sole with refined materials, down to the expertise of Tod’s craftsmen who have innovatively applied the manufacturing techniques traditionally used in glove-making. Their process of production requires a high level of skill, and the sewing of the pieces are done by hand.
