Ok, so I may be biased, but, if you are going to shop for dad this weekend, head to the newly launched Claiborne by John Bartlett shop. It’s only slightly uptown to the west village to 143 Seventh Avenue @ Charles Street (take the 2/3 to 14th street, and walk south a couple of blocks).
The collection is “authentic American style for the authentic American man”. It’s grown-up, easy and well-priced: from polos at $39.50, plaid shorts at $55 and long-sleeved button down mini-gingham shirts at $69.50, they are all great gifts for dad! Also, if you purchase $75 or more you get some fun gifts with your purchase! The store is open 11-7 daily from Thursday 6/18 – Monday 6/22, so hurry up and bring dad shopping. And definitely don’t get him another tie.
