Father’s Day gift buying’s a breeze with these locally made finds
For the Scouting Report section of Charleston’s June issue, we rounded up a stylish selection of Father’s Day gifts, with a focus on items made right here in the Lowcountry. If you’ve already picked up one of these handsome finds, way to go! But if you haven’t? The big event is this Sunday, so peruse the ideas below—organized according to what sort of dad they’ll suit—and grab a present that will show him how much you care.
Is your father a fly guy? Give him the “Popper Fly Kit”—fitted with seven bass and bream poppers—along with the promise of a relaxing day on the water. $22 at Charleston Angler
Dress padre for some luxurious leisure time in a pair of Vintage 1946 shorts made exclusively for M. Dumas & Sons by Berle, a 66-year-old Charleston-based manufacturer. $89.50 madras & $95 seersucker at M. Dumas & Sons
If he’s truly tops—with the hat-wearing flair to prove it—treat him to the “Wilson” Panama from Charleston’s resident milliner. $450 at Magar Hatworks
The Charleston Shrimp Zipper (for deveining and shelling), Charleston Hooker (for turning meat), and Charleston Butt Grabber (for Boston butts) make a great trio for the man whose sense of humor’s as good as his grilling. $25, $30, & $40 at Wonder Works
