Fashion: Ahead of Father’s Day, Jeanne Beker puts together a look for every kind of dad

This month, Jeanne tunes into four different looks for just as many dads — from a father with more classic sensibilities to rock star (or wannabe) pop. Here’s the lowdown on four cool looks just in time for Father’s Day. 

A) Make like Kanye
“If you really feel your dad is a superstar… 1) Givenchy is such a coveted label and this is a great print. 2) We’ve teamed it with a pair of ‘track slacks,’ we can call them — a salute to the whole sporty–chic trend. 3) These high-tops have an absolutely crazy leather handle on the back! 4) And put on a pair of classic Tom Ford sunglasses. Really really cool.”
Look from Holt Renfrew Men, 100 Bloor St. W., Givenchy shirt $1,075, Valentino pants $760, Buscemi sneakers $975, Tom Ford aviators $465

B) A Sting of approval
“This is a very polished look. It’s for a man of any age but there’s a youthful spirit for it. I tell men to dress for their spirit! 1) This blazer is very lightweight — it’s got a bit of stretch and is very season appropriate. 2) I love the way the T-shirt makes the look less serious. 3) These are nice pale grey pants. 4) And a beautiful dark navy shoe. Really smart; you’d get a lot of wear out of these.”
Clothes from Jerome’s Menswear, 2603 Yonge St., blazer $798, trousers $298, t-shirt $150; Shoes from DAVIDS, 66 Bloor St. W., Paul Smith oxfords $635 

C) For the Keith connoisseur
“Can we say, avant-garde?! 1) This is for the edgy dad — the way it’s shredded, the big oversized dome snaps. Rock ’n’ roll. 2) The shirt is so interesting, in that it’s multi-textured and has artwork on the front. 3)  Pair with  these jeans with a great wash.  4  The silver running shoes are fantastic. If he can rock it, bless him!”
Look from TNT Man, 87 Avenue Rd., Comme Des Garçons jacket $2,895, Yohji Yamamoto shirt $1,190, Dsquared2 jeans $595, Adidas x Raf Simons sneakers, $440

D) A dash of Hunter
“It just a simple little summer outfit! I can see Dad hanging around the cottage in this. 1) A modern take on an old Hawaiian shirt — a bit of romance there — and it’s a pullover. Cool styling. 2) These are no-nonsense shorts in a great shade of khaki. 3) And suede sneakers in this beautiful tobacco shade. 4) This funky hat is great for a guy who likes to sit around on a boat.”
Look from Uncle Otis, 26 Bellair St., Hawaiian shirt $155, shorts $220, U.S. Army bucket hat $268, Adidas sneakers $150
