Talking Shop: Father's Day

Dad’s day doesn’t have to mean a new tie and a barbecue. Or have anything to do with golf. If your man lies under that stodgy old radar, and doesn’t even like football, you can still shop for him. And actually have fun doing it. Here’s a few last-minute ideas of where to look, located both in and out of your general time zone.

Can’t afford to buy your green eco-mate the whole Vespa? You can still get the dude his own Vespa beanie in red or blue, or a rakish Vespa logo bandana at Erico Motorsports, 2855 Walnut Street; call 303-308-1811. Or happen into the egalitarian boy-girl Fancy Tiger Boutique, 14 S. Broadway, which carries awesome and spacious manbags by Lug, including a well-pocketed camp messenger bag or a compact, body-hugging moped day bag. Seeking something smaller? Get him a wallet, but not just any wallet: Maybe a FluffyCo wallet imprinted with nature-inspired silhouettes. Fancy Tiger also carries anti-macho tee-shirts to match; call 303-282-6590 for info.
