Clothes
There's nothing wrong with giving your father clothes, just try to avoid ties. Or, actually, no. Get your dad a tie if you want, just make sure it's a cool tie. But where should you go to find this tie or other smart dad clothing choices? Well, you should go to Goose Barnacle in Brooklyn Heights. Owner David Alperin, a third-generation Brooklyn native, has curated a beautiful selection of men's clothing and accessories (as well as a rotating art collection) that makes it impossible to go wrong in selecting something for your father. There's everything from the perfect summer dad shoe (the Sebago Docksider) to a Nordic raincoat that will make your father feel like George Clooney in that most manly of movies, The Perfect Storm. And even though no one wants to live out the ending of that movie in real life, that final shot of Mark Wahlberg in the ocean is pretty goddamn stunning.

Goose Barnacle; 91 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn Heights
