The breakdown—starring Emily Ratajkowski, Panama hats, feuding Greek shipping magnates, grilling everything, summer cocktails, sexy convertibles and… did we mention Emily Ratajkowski?—now.
It’s become a time-honored tradition for a son to give his father a token of appreciation on the third Sunday of June.
That’s this Sunday, mind you.

Whether your old man is a fisher, a gamer or just likes a good pocket square, we’ve got you covered. (Luckily, you’ve still got two-day shipping on your side.)

Today GQ announced their nominees for this year’s Best New Menswear Designer—a coveted honor they’ve been bestowing upon the young Billy Reids and Thom Brownes of the menswear world for nearly a decade now.
But just take a look at this paneled photo of this year’s nominees. It could very well be a menswearified “one of these things is not like the others” puzzle from a Highlights magazine. (Hint: it’s the guy in the suit.)
