Why dad needs it
: He's either into #menswear, or he's the type of dude who's willing to suit up to get his family fed without letting a soul-crushing job extinguish his sense of humor. Getting him a light-hearted tie will give a constant reminder of what he's putting in work for, and let him stunt on drab dudes in his office.
