The Elder Statesman
Fact: Dad's won't spend a lot of money needlessly on themselves.
If you want (need) to go upscale and spend a little (a lot) more, then check out The Elder Statesman. This is an LA-based brand founded in 2007 by Greg Chait, and the name honors a legendary British orator from the 1800's whose fame was based upon skill and authenticity, rather than a title. Nonetheless, these apparel items are expensive but are finely crafted from the best cashmere. The socks are ultra comfy and perfect to fill the (big) shoes of your Dad!
