This Sunday is Father’s Day, and plenty of Atlanta makers and shop owners offer slick duds for just about any Dad. Just think—shopping local might even be faster than Amazon Prime.

Clockwise from top left:

Floral button-down shirt, $145, Sid Mashburn, Westside Provisions District. If your dad’s wardrobe is filled with plaid shirts, why not update his look with a sport shirt in this fun Liberty print?

Old Fourth Distillery gin, $29.99, H&F Bottle Shop, Peachtree Battle Shopping Center. If he’s always ordering G&T’s, make his liquor shelf a little more local with gin from Old Fourth Distillery .

Cutting board, $28, Dear Keaton. For the dad that cooks, this cutting board adds a little jazz to his grill game.

Dad’s Playbook, $12.95, The Merchant, Krog Street Market.  Filled with fatherly advice from famous coaches, this book might come in handy for the new dad in your life.

Alligator belt, $500, Blair’s Belts. Classic and versatile, it can go from the office to the golf course.

Card by Lindsay Ryden, $5, Citizen Supply, Ponce City Market. Instead of getting him a Hallmark card, go for something clever by local illustrator Lindsay Ryden.

Flordeliza bi-fold wallet, $80, Citizen Supply, Ponce City Market. Carl Caballes makes all of his leather products locally in his East Atlanta shop—and these wallets are made to last.

Suede drivers, $195, Cobbler Union, 312 North Highland Avenue. A pair of locally made navy drivers is perfect for the dad that travels—or just likes to feel luxurious at home.

Atlanta-based Red’s Outfitters launches its “Land Yacht”


On Thursday, Atlanta-based Red’s Outfitters will launch its new mobile showroom—a 1966 Airstream dubbed the “Land Yacht Collective”—making its first stop at Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall before a summer-long road trip to Montauk. Red’s was founded in 2011 by Brian Francis, Cason Milner, and Will Cowan as a sunglasses company inspired by American heritage and Italian craftsmanship. Their frames are made of ecofriendly plant-based cellulose acetate and are sold in boutiques and department stores across the country. Now, Red’s is using the Land Yacht to showcase their new line of shirts, a collection of updated oxfords that are made in America. But the the Land Yacht will also be picking up other brands along the way, selling not only their sunglasses and shirts but also pieces from brands such as Ferragamo, Del Toro, and Solid and Striped. After Atlanta, the Land Yacht Collective will stop in Charleston, D.C., and New York before landing in Montauk for the summer. Fortunately for those of us stuck on the mainland, an online store will open on May 26. The Land Yacht will be docked at Ladybird on May 19 from 4 p.m. until 11 p.m.

Red’s Sunglasses are currently sold in Atlanta at Onward Reserve, Miller Brothers, and Orvis. Follow them on Instagram: @reds_usa.
