With Father’s Day fast approaching, we’d be lying if we said we didn’t have dudes on our minds. But these awesometown items aren’t just for dads, they’re for dudes of all persuasions.
Felted slippers ECO Primitive by Baymut. $60. Any size, sole covered in natural latex to prevent slipping, made of felted Australian Merino and Gotland wool. What else is there to say? Oh, these gorgeous slippers will keep a dude’s feet warm and look good while doing it. Which is more than we can say about his pair that the dog chewed on. Sorry, honey, but when we can see more of your toes than not, they do not “still function.”
Walter from The Big Lebowski Mug by DailyGrinder. $14. Let’s face it, if your dude is stuck in a desk job, he’s probably got more Walter moments during his work day than he’d care to contemplate. And with this mug he can calmly sip his coffee, imagine himself at the lanes, and wonder to himself “WWWD?” (What Would Walter Do?) while his boss yells about deadlines, missed memos, and the budget. He, unlike Walter, will abide.
Beer-Words of Wisdom Framed Photo by marcimolina. $20. Little known fact: Dudes generally like beer. I know, it shocked us too, but apparently it’s been going on for quite some time…after all Benjamin Franklin seemed to know all about it. What better way to give beer drinking that historical gravitas that it so often lacks than with this great framed photo with these ultimate words of wisdom? I mean, it’s Benjamin Franklin, people. He was one of the founding fathers of our country or whatever. You can’t argue with that* (*Sarah Palin excepted.)
1936 Ford V8 Hubcap Clock by StarlingInk. $55.99. Gear head or geek, this clock just screams “freaking cool!!!!” Made of a vintage hubcap (and if Ford’s not your thing, check StalingInk’s shop for way more makes and models), this would rock out in a man den, bachelor pad, or hey, even in our kitchen. Go ahead, boys, we don’t mind. With old school style like that, how could we?
Wheelie Bike screen printed glassware by vital. $20. Dude, talk about a sweet ride! Banana seat, ape hangers…come on! Summers were spent on these babies, seeing who could pop the best wheelie in the driveway. The classic image is screen printed onto this set of two pint glasses, ready for an ice cold drink, no matter if you’re thinking along the lines of old Benny F. (he asked us to call him that), or if milk’s more your speed. Guaranteed to make you the envy of all the neighborhood kids, young and old alike.
