Wives, kids, domestic partners: Curious what gifts and activities your Man of the Moment might enjoy this Father’s Day? (It’s June 15, by the way.) In order to discern the complex goings-on that occur behind a dad’s stoic visage, we went straight to the source, asking several real-life family men here at Nordstrom HQ to offer notes on their personal style and parenting style.
Keep reading for some wise words from our Associate Digital Creative Director Jeremy Prasatik—a man who appreciates barbecue, basketball, and sleeping in (just a little).

1) High-End Workwear. I’m a huge Billy Reid fan and a total sucker every time I see him using his signature brass hardware. It’s perfect for dressing up or down. I already have his dark-wash denim jacket; now I need the light wash. [Shop: Billy Reid Denim Jacket | All Billy Reid]
2) A Hands-Free Device. I wear a backpack daily on my commute to the office. This is the ultimate, functionally chic, utility backpack from WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie. [Shop: WANT Les Essentiels Backpack | All Bags & Wallets]
3) A Detroit Original. Normally, I’m a simple Timex sort of guy, but this Shinola is a throwback, classically styled timepiece that would complete any look. I love the Shinola brand story and made-in-the-USA roots. [Shop: Shinola ‘Runwell Chrono’ Watch | All Watches]
