Gentlemen, the count-down to Father’s Day 2015 continues. Time to drop hints to anyone that’s listening or at least pretending. In our first installment we featured gifts ideas for dads born in the mid 1980s through the early 2000s; for our friends, the Millennials. I appreciate all of the feedback we received to that post and we’re glad you enjoyed the choices.
Today, we look at the generation just before the Millennials–Generation X. This group of men born between the mid 1960s and the early 1980s, are young enough to enjoy a good time, career-focused, often executive-types and can usually afford the more pricier items. Generation Xers have some similar fashion likes to the Millennials, but they start looking for classic pieces as well as those items that uniquely suggests their image and/or style preferences.
We celebrate the Generation X-Men by featuring 10 of our favorite recommended gift items! Each of the featured items can be located by visiting East Dane by clicking here or the button to the right. Feel free to share this post with friends and family members struggling with purchase decisions. Follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr to keep up with the latest style ideas from Styled by Mark.
