Making Dallas Even Better

Shop for a Father’s Day Gift in Dallas

We know that not all dads are created equal. Some are sporty, others like the great outdoors. Whatever kind of dad you have, we have the perfect spot to find the perfect gift. Read on!

The Sporty Dad: RunOn!
With nine locations, RunOn! provides customers with a variety of sporting goods and, most importantly, the customer service that will give you the confidence to know that you’ve got the best gift for dad. RunOn! uses an individualized biomechanics fitting process to make sure each customer finds the right fit, so bring dad along for the choosing. You can also pick up everything from sunglasses to the shiniest new heart rate monitor to show him how much you appreciate all that he does.

The Outdoorsman: Whole Earth Provision Company
Although the company started in Austin, Whole Earth Provision Company does have locations in both Dallas and Southlake. They sell all kinds of goods and products that will ensure outdoor safety and fun for the whole family, with an emphasis on conservation and restoration. Their various locations organize volunteer efforts to clean up rivers and other outdoor spaces and teach classes in the same subjects to children and teens in their local communities. So, whether your dad needs new hiking boots or a hammock to lounge in, you’ll be able to find something that he’ll enjoy for years to come and that will positively impact his environment in more ways than one.

The Trendsetter: The Gents Place
This “men’s grooming and lifestyle club” has two locations and provides the kinds of grooming services like haircuts and hot lather neck shaves, which will keep a stylish dad looking snazzy, without you having to do recon in his closet to find out his neck size. Buy your dad a one off service gift card so he can make an appointment to see if he likes what The Gents Place has to offer or, perhaps, provide him with membership to keep him looking smart for a month or a year at a time to show him how much you care.

The Foodie: Premier Grilling
The self-proclaimed outdoor kitchen experts have two locations where you can pick up everything from the grilling tools to grilling classes (which might benefit you, too, when he needs guinea pigs to test out his new skills!)

The Entertainment Junkie: Alamo Drafthouse
Opened and run by self-styled “devoted movie fans,” the Alamo Draft House serves excellent food and locally brewed beer at each of their four locations. They also have a strict policy when it comes to texting and talking during their showings, which almost guarantees that any movie you choose to treat your dad to on Father’s Day will be excellent. The cinema has special screenings which often feature classic films that any self-respecting entertainment junkie dad would know. In fact, the Richardson location is planning screenings of The Shining AND Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade on Father’s Day, as well as the big name new releases like Jurassic World.

European Retailer Suitsupply Debuts in Dallas

European menswear boutique Suitsupply is expanding beyond its Stanley Korshak digs with a 6,700-square-foot shop in West Village. The new store will carry suits in a variety of fabrics, cuts and colors that add flair and character to the everyday ensemble. With a large selection of European styles, each customer can create a unique, personalized look, and on-site tailors can make alterations in the store the same day.

The retailer currently has over 60 locations worldwide, including 14 in the United States and Canada. The 1,000-square-foot Stanley Korshak shop-in-shop opened last summer, and its success inspired the new location.

When you stop by, make sure to take note of the exterior: the walls are covered in ceramic tiles designed and crafted in Switzerland—a look that is unlike any other Suitsupply store in the world.

Suitsupply opens June 18 at 3700 McKinney Avenue. See you there.
