Father’s Day Gift Guide

In the past, we’ve explored the gift ideas that appeal to all kinds of dads, ones who dress up, enjoy fine wine or scotch, travel, and splurge on grooming products. This year, we’re giving our ideas for the other 2/3s of dads out there – the guys who prefer to be in the yard, get the guys over and BBQ. Don’t be confused, these are still Style Dads but these guys are more comfortable in the yard than they are at a martini bar.

Here are clips from our recent press tour, below are details on where you can find these great items for your dad.

CURATE launches in YYC

Be The Style Guys, we not only focus on fashion and style, but also home decor. Aly, being a designer (Alykhan Velji Designs) is launching an exciting new venture called CURATE here in Calgary. The concept is basically a store within a store. CURATE has taken over a part of KIYA Home, that has recently opened in Deerfoot Meadows. He has handpicked some of his favourite artists and designers to be showcased in his first ever collection called Made in Canada. Each piece is hand made, designed, or developed in Canada. His goal was to bring high quality, beautifully designed pieces so that everyone has access to them, not just designers.

Aly has also collaborated with a local concrete artist, Mtharu in designing 3 gorgeous pieces for the home including a set of coasters, candle holders and votive holders. (These you will just have to go to KIYA Home and check it out!)

Here are a few of the great pieces that you will see:
