Say it with a Smythson Father’s Day Gift

By Chris Boyle

For the true gentleman, a partnership of peerless quality and unparalleled style is presented in ‘The Manual for a Stylish Life, Volume 2’.

Written by the team at Mr Porter and edited by style connoisseur Jeremy Langmead, this tongue-in-cheek gentlemen’s guide is hand-bound in Smythson’s iconic cross-grain leather, and bears 245 gilded pages of invaluable advice.

Limited to 500 copies around the world, this exquisite collectable aims to inform, inspire and entertain, with an array of iconic interviews and inside tips on everything from ‘how to buy a Rolex’ to ‘nailing a tie dimple’. Witty, charismatic and undeniably charming, this delightful selection of memorandums makes the perfect gift for the father who has everything.


For the luxe traveller, a range of leather travel accessories is presented; including the red calf leather Panama double zip travel wallet. Sporting the same cross-grain leather as Smythson’s original Panama diary from 1908, its grab handle and numerous card sleeves are perfect for the impeccably organised.

The pocket sized ‘King Of Dads’ wafer notebook is offered in cross-grain lambskin, enfolding Smythson’s iconic hand-gilded Featherweight paper that withstands the test of fountain pen ink beautifully. Ever the individualist, notebooks and accessories can be personalised with initials for the perfect finishing touch.

For the businessman and technology obsessed, the Mara folding iPad Air case wears its luminous crocodile print on its calfskin exterior handsomely. Offered in classic tones of brown and black, it speaks boldly to the surrounding world, paying homage to Smythson’s ongoing history of British craftsmanship.MrPorterPaperback_3

For a gift of true luxury, the Grosvenor rotary watch box is also presented. Encased in black calf leather, a bespoke panel drops down to reveal two watch compartments with a battery operated rotary mechanism, perfectly enclosed in their nubuck housing.

Smythson continues to lead the way in luxury leather goods, crafting the perfect gifts for Father’s Day 2014.
