7 Shops for Pops & Other Dudes

Weekend Shopping Guide

It's too late to order anything for Father's Day but, let's face it, we shop for men all year long. And, contrary to popular belief, men like to shop too. With that in mind, we've rounded up seven of our favorite shops for the masculine set. 1. BDDW (shown above) is known for broodingly handsome furniture that made with heirloom quality. The company's founder, Tyler Hays, is a painter, a sculptor and the head designer.

2. Old Faithful Shop sets out to be a modern version of the general store by concentrating on quality goods for simple, everyday living. Shop online or visit their brick and mortar shop in Vancouver.

3. London-based online retailer Folklore (above) stocks quirky, industrial items. From furniture – like the Dip Chair – to lighting – like the Trash Me Lamp made out of paper pulp – Folklore's offerings are inventive yet classic.

4. There's nothing more handsome than an organized space. The Museum of Useful Things celebrates the beauty of function by offering industrial style organizing tools. From laundry baskets to label holders, they're like the Container Store with a shot of testosterone.

5. The Future Perfect has a knack for discovering fresh new talent. Since their aesthetic leans toward rustic industrial many of the products have a masculinity to them. They're the first to offer the Facecord Dresser that got our attention at ICFF.

6. Owen & Fred (above) is the only store on our list that expressly calls itself a shop for men. It's a great go-to for creature comforts for guys. Where else will you find kitschy shower curtains next to cigar box speakers?

7. OHIO Design may be based in San Francisco, but their furniture has a rugged Midwestern charm. Their adjustable height Adler Table gives a nod to the machinist tables built at the turn of the century.
