He's not fussy, he prefers quality over quantity and he's confident there's nothing a little American ingenuity can't fix. He's your classic, old fashioned Dad. With him in mind, I've rounded up 6 modern products that might appeal to the Classic Dad.
1. Back in the day, Dad loved to smoke a cigar. He's given those up for good health - but he can indulge any nostalgia with these Cigar Box Speakers from Owen and Fred.
2. Daddio may have embraced modern technology, but he's still talking about the good old days of clacking away at the old Smith Corona. Give him an updated version with the USB Typewriter Computer Keyboard.
3. Pop still reads the daily newspaper with his morning coffee, but now he's getting it on his iPad. This classic nautical Needlepoint iPad Case from Lands End will keep Pop's iPad clean and classy.
4. Quality used to matter, Father's always muttering. Each Modern Record Console from Symbol Audio is individually crafted as a piece of furniture, like the hi-fis systems of yesteryear.
5. Like Papa says, back in his day people used every last piece of everything! The Fern Box No. 1 is constructed of the scrapwood and cut-offs from the lumber used in larger work.
6. For all his strenths, Papa would lose his head if it wasn't attached. Curtis Micklish's stylish Butler stores everything neatly right by the front door. Phone, wallet, glasses and keys, all in one handsome wooden box.
