if you look at men’s fashion online you are going to be a little disconcerted or
just plain freaked out so today we are going to get hot tips for Father’s Day
trends. Welcome to Newport Living and Lifestyles and welcome sartorial expert
Marc Streisand from Marc Allen fine Clothier right here on Bellevue. Hey! thanks for
having me here, thanks for coming to my shop.
Welcome! We’re gonna have a lot of fun today I think that we have gifts for
everybody that can possibly want to buy their husbands, fathers,
boyfriend’s, parents something and I think that they’re gonna be very very
happy with what we’ve selected for you. Everything from low range to high range.
Yes alright , well where are you located? Tell us a little bit about yourself. Ok
so my last name is Streisand. Yes I’m related to Barbara, that’s the
first question that everybody asks me. She is my second cousin, but I can’t sing
for anything, so let’s not try that. Not even a smidgen? yeah… nobody nobody
wants to hear that. I mean unless you want your viewership to run. so right here in
Newport we’re at 142 Bellevue Avenue. We also have locations in Providence Rhode
Island and Boston Massachusetts. I’ve had Marc Allen fine clothiers for the past 15
years. We had our 15th anniversary March 5th. Well let’s get to it! What do you
have for us here today? We know how important your relationships are with
your father’s, boyfriends or husbands, so what we did here is we brought in a
few kind of key items here very very less expensive less than $30
these are from Lemon and Line located here in Newport Rhode Island and they’re
obviously a very nautically inspired bracelet as you can see Christon’s
wearing one as well. We have your classic tie and we brought
something again you know bring it to Newport nice and full of color
everything and all the ties are handmade Italy and you know paint is one of my
favorite colors pink purple those are colors of royalty regal Ness and I’m
wealth so don’t be afraid to get that person something that’s going to give a
little bit of pop and Flair here we have a couple of socks
now I’m gonna unroll this one for you so you can actually see what it is this is
what’s called over the calf sock and you might say to yourself oh my god it’s so
big yes it is right and most people do but the great thing about this sock is
that it’s never going to fall down in a guy’s leg so often guys get frustrated
so you know unlike me I’m not wearing any socks today okay
typical New England. right! it’s Newport, it’s the beach and you know we want to
have a little fun and breath a little bit but for the guy that really likes that
colorful action this sock is never gonna fall down on him so it’s gonna go all
the way up to his calf and it’s gonna stay there and it’s gonna look nice and
clean all day long because you know if you look at it the Blues are very
similar and it goes with your outfit. so I think it’d be really really cool
He is the sartorial expert! and again all their socks, they’re made in Italy
Bresciani which is a company right out of Tuscany outside of Tuscany.
Marcoliani which is a little bit more of a southern Italy the other real common
gift for a guy to get now is the pocket square. It adds a little dish of color or a
little finishing touch, to a guys outfit, so you’ll see here that
I have one air in my pocket and you know with this one we actually make here
right here in the store and we hand crocheted the edges just to give it a
little bit more depth to it this is just from our custom shirt this is some
remnant that we have leftover and if I pop it into my breast pocket here you
don’t have to fuss with it, and it just stays in there nice and clean. Now I know
how they put a pocket square in the pocket. right and there’s so many different ways .I mean we
put up on the web right now, a bunch different ways for guys to wear
pocket squares. great tutorial. we made sartorial face masks
so basically much like the pocket square, we took our custom shirt fabrics and we
developed them into a beautifully hand finished, handmade, reusable, washable
facemasks. what we’re doing now is anytime a guy makes a custom shirt we’re making
him a matching pocket square. I love that idea! Next is
cufflinks, this is from a brand called Robin Rotenier out of New York
City. again Nautically inspired for Newport. we have an octopus, we have fish, this
is a barracuda so when a guy wants to go fishing, and says this is his
favorite kind of downtime activity is fishing. next thing is the bathing suit.
well you can’t just go with a schlocky old bathing suit that you maybe
get from a ten dollar store. what is schlocky? Schlocky is
those , you know cut-offs or the bargain-basement ones that maybe
you’re gonna get at the discount store. okay, all right, schlocky.
exactly so vilebrequin is a French brand and they are they have really been known
for the father-son bathing suit and you can see if you look to your right hand side.
you’ll see we have a bunch of different ones. you know have a little bit of fun.
and you know there’s a specific way you have to wear the bathing suit, with your
shirt tucked in the back. yes as you can see over here you know it’s all about
branding, nobody wants to see this in a bathing suit. That’s why they tuck the back in, not the front.
exactly! next thing to me which i think is so so important is the quintessential
t-shirt so this is a t-shirt out of Naples Italy from a company called
Mazzarelli, the cotton is extremely soft and it’s so light I mean it feels like
you’re wearing nothing and I love that. Ettinger is known for their really cool
leather goods. One of the things that I like to have
is the flask. Now you’re saying, well why do I want a flask, well I don’t have a
drinking problem. however, I like my own spirits. I’m sorry, Newport has a drinking
problem. Yes and hence the reason why we have these little flasks, so what’s really
cool about this one is it has its own little glasses. Is something in there for us? You know what? I was afraid.
because it is only twelve O’Clock, if we started now, we won’t finish till
probably two o’clock this morning. We will just keep having fun. exactly, so what I love
about this, is the shape of it, because it’s a little bit different. I
mean here’s your classic flask. It’s really cool but I like the size
of this one and it was just felt really good, it’s a little bit more finished. I
love the fact that it has a little compartment that you can put your
cups in it right away, so when you unscrew it any periodic, boom. If you are on a boat, it has a good grip. yes exactly
and it’s much more classy than carrying a lot of nips around. This is from a
local designer called Kimberly Pucci and Kimberly does beautiful luxury lifestyle
items, beautiful leathers, all made in Tuscany. This is a dopp kit, what I
love about this is you can custom make these and you can have them lined with
all different colors of leather. okay this is my
favorite thing! I use it all the time! BOOM!
wait for it. oh yeah. Do you know what that sound is? Daddy’s little helper.
Right here! This is a wine tote. It carries six
bottles of wine. beautiful. beautifully crafted, very very durable handles, great
pockets. Then the other thing, that Kimberly doesn’t know, that I think this
is really great for, I’m just gonna show you real quickly. You can put your shoes in here. Okay and wine! and wine.
I have been to several parties around town when you get there they have very
large silk rugs and they ask you to take off your shoes off.
This right here is a very good… HAA okay so this was a gag gift and it has become
really popular among the men in our circle and it has a whole set.
yes! so this is from a company called Ballsy.
Let me read you the tagline. “keep the funk off your junk” boom.
I don’t get red often people, but I’m red right now.
Nut rub. It’s a cologne. Is it? I got nothing. It comes with a whole set.
Just a little something for your honey. yeah… yes. And personally, I would
probably have a good laugh if I received this. Exactly, That is really what it is all about.
Harry shave club. Harry shave club is
really great because it provides you… It originally, just started with shaving
cream and a razor and it has really expanded. They’ve gotten a lot more into
the men’s facial facial healthcare, with scrubs, and masks, face wash and
again your razors. The great thing about this is you can just go online and
order it right there and it just comes in the mail, so you don’t have to go buy
razors. Next product. Stay on the boat. Stay on the boat! Don’t worry about it. The next
product is something that every man should have. If he doesn’t
he doesn’t have good friends. The anticipation is killing me.
Boom! This is a nose and ear trimmer. oh please yes! it’s terrible when they have
little things hanging out like that, and then in the ears…
You want to take care of this. Something good, get a good one. Out of my
research, I found Wahl makes the best one. Respect your friends and
trim your hairs. There’s a shop in Newport called Grenon’s and it’s right
on Bellevue, right down the street from us. This is a pen from
Rome from a company called Zanetti. It’s not inexpensive, but it is really really
beautiful, it’s all natural stone that its main add up mother-of-pearl
and you can see here, the color green, it changes. It is Oyster shell-ish
It’s like that oyster shell that you would see, so this pen is $1500 bucks.
A lot of money, but a great investment. This is a keep sake,
something that you can hand down throughout the years, and to me that’s
very very important. I still have my original pen that I got a long time ago
from my parents. She’s always trying to get me to say how old I am.
I’m not telling. Next we have a beautiful watch here also from Grenon’s from
Alexander Shorokoff out of Germany. This is a real statement watch.
I like this watch. This one here is another beautiful watch out of Europe it’s a
diver watch, it’s got a very cool… feel that texture on the top of that band.
I love that they stitched the whole band with the orange to give a little more accent. Gives it a pop.
Very cool, go on your boat, dive right in, you never have to worry about it. Next watch
we have here is a Speake Marin. This watch is a chronograph.
You can see that it has a silicone band, which i think is very very cool.
This one here is my favorite. This watch, if you can get a little close up,
For anyone who’s a horologist, they’re gonna look at this watch
and they’re going to be wowed by it. I’m sorry, a what?
A horologist, that is a person who is into horology, which is fine watches and time pieces.
Well that explains why I didn’t know what it was.
On another subject we have our Newport scenery here.
Newports known for our sailing. We’ve had the American Cup here for years and years and years and years.
We’re trying to always roll it back, but
you can go down to the wharfs or the even the bay you’ll see
hundreds maybe thousands of sailboats so this is a nice gift, it’s not
very very expensive it’s about twenty-five dollars. Get your dad
something that when he writes you a note back one day saying you’re a
great child. Next thing is a little cutesy item. This
is from the museum mansion store. What I like about these
These are coasters but they’re like little flying carpets. Couple items that are a little
bit more random, most men have these things
already, but this is a wallet. This is your classic billfold. This is
made from a brand called Tumi. This is from a company out of
France called Hermes. It’s got a very cute design to it, so when it is
folded it up, it’s very very slim and sleek. You can carry a credit
card here, credit card here, and you can put a bill right
across here, this is the width of a bill and you just put a regular bill in
there and just keeps nice and folded. Very very simple & easy. I don’t like to
carry a big wallet. I like something a little bit more small. Well you have a purse!
This is a little tablet, you can get a pen that can fit in here.
You remember the old composition notepads that
we used to have as kids. You can keep a log, keep notes, one of those little
easy things. This is an item that you are really going to love.
I am going to love this. I feel like he is saying that I am going to love this.
Personally, I get it. yeah now we know what SAXX means. feel this under wear.
it’s got it’s got a great hand to it, it’s a beautiful cotton modal, a little
stretch to it. And wicking. oh yes absolutely wicks. What’s great
about this is it has a little ball sack. A guy out in California about ten
years ago said to me, I’ve got the greatest underwear in the world! I’m like
whatever. he goes it’s a ball sack! I’m like what do you mean it’s a ball sack?
well you ride your bike right ? I saw it Facebook. I’m like yeah
This will help you with your riding. So I said send me a pair and I wear it
ever since. If you don’t want to get your
dad just a little gadget or a bathing suit or something like that, you want
might want to get him something that’s a little sportier, so this is the same
make manufacturers as the t-shirts from a brand called Mazzarelli. What I like
about this, is that it’s kind of shirt collar, the next thing that can go with
this, Thank you Vanna White, I like the way it feels.
This is a brand called PT-01 out of Torino Italy. This is their rendition of
the quintessential techno golf trouser now I use the word golf because it’s got
a couple features in there that make it a little bit more apropos for golf but
still allows you to wear this with a pair of dress shoes and even the polo.
This is from a brand out a Naples Italy called Pescarolo the modern-day
jogger or sweat pant. Now it’s sweat pant
material it’s made out of all cotton, it’s made in Italy, it’s got a drawstring
and everything, but it unbuttons like a regular trouser. Other items over here
very very important. If you’re on your boat cruising around on your scooter
just out lounging around. Gotta be cool. Gotta be cool.
What’s better than your ray-ban sunglasses. I’m actually gonna have you
model these. now not only are these are the classic aviator style but they have the
brow bar. That is the key piece this year is to have the brow bar. she doesn’t
sweat, just so that you know that, beautiful, glistening. It’ll actually, it’ll stop there. This is from somebody that’s near and
dear to our hearts. I don’t know who it could possibly be? Chris Cline Design
Chris Cline Design. All handmade, hand painted shells, locally. You can use these
for almost anything you want. For something that’s near and dear to
everyone’s heart is the homemade gift. Don’t ever forget about the homemade gifts.
it’s not the gift, it’s the whole feeling about doing something special.
What’s says more special than, I love you daddy.
Handmade, gorgeous, love it, free! so for the guy who wants something that’s more
individual he’s gonna maybe want to have a custom-made sport jacket or suit. We
know many that do. How do you make it special?
well we’ve done something that I think is really unique. We have contracted with
a couple of different companies and here is all different
linings that you can put into a jacket. Those are nice. yeah and they’re all made out of bemberg
and silks and you can get such fun ones in here so this is a
client, on a beautiful estate on Ocean Drive and you’ll see,
this is a beautiful mansion on Ocean Drive and you can see
that we have stepped and repeated it, so this whole thing is all made of
silk, and it’s the exact image that we talk so we hired a photographer to come
out and he took a really beautiful sky shot of this thing.
The last thing. The very last thing! Is a lapel pin.
I made from another local designer. Chris Cline Design
This is a beautiful lapel pin star fish.
A lapel pin is another way for a guy to have an accessory so that he can wear something that’s individual.
and Christon has one on too.
now we’re a little twinsy today, which I kind of dig.
Marc, thank you so much for making our Father’s Day a special one.
Everybody can just reach you or go to your website if they have any questions.
