Father’s Day gift buying’s a breeze with these locally made finds

1. Mixologist
Brooks Reitz was so inspired by his great-grandfather that he named his Jack Rudy Cocktail Co. Small Batch Tonic after him. Dad’ll appreciate the sentiment—and the elevated sip. $16 for 17 oz. at

2. Prepster
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

3. Outdoorsman
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

4. Grill Master
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

5. Hipster
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
