Dads. They have everything, do everything, and know everything. Which makes zeroing in on the perfect Father’s Day gift a bit like finding a needle in a haystack. Enter Best Made Co., an emporium of how-did-I-live-without-that gadgets on White
Street. Think gorgeously made leather goods, blissfully simpleclothing basics, and artisanal tools (it all started with an axe, really) that would make any Dad feel blessed to unwrap. Does he always fantasize about having a workshop? He’ll go bananas for the luxe leather toolbox. Is he a class-A camper? There’s a hobo knife/fork/spoon setup that would wow around the campfire. There’s also some classic enamelware, smart first aid kits, and seriously styling duffels.
About that axe: even if you’ve never seen your dad as a woodsy type, if he’s got a house in the country or even just a fenced-in brownstone backyard, it’s pretty much guaranteed that he’ll love this gorgeous piece of craftsmanship, which is hand-made and embellished with such a gorgeous paintjob that it’s actually been on display at the Saatchi Gallery in London. So if he’s not at all woodsy but appreciates good art, it’s also a slam-dunk. Best Made, 36 White Street, New York, (646) 478-7092
