For most of us, it's our inevitable destination. It's what we grew up with, what we rebelled from, but what we are probably going to come back to, as if pulled by gravity. Yes, I'm talking about dad style, or as your dad calls it, "my clothes." So you flirted with "fashion" for a bit, but one day you looked out on the street and saw everyone wearing the same thing, like lemmings to the cliff. No more, you say. Though you may have no children, it's time for dad style, and Remington 1816 is the brand to help you make that transition without stealing all your dad's clothes.
Remington itself needs no introduction. It's the oldest company in America that still makes its original product — guns and ammo, of course — as well as the oldest continuously operating manufacturer on the continent. But recently, they've taken that know-how and applied it towards apparel and gear. Combining their wild west heritage with a modern touch, the Remington 1816 line emerges as a perfect blend of utilitarianism, understated style, and history. Dad or no dad, there's good stuff for everyone here.
Aberdeen Vest - $125 The vest is the quintessential standard issue dad style garment, and the Aberdeen keeps it unique. Quilted with polyfill insulation, this hunting vest stands out from the bunch with buttons and orange trim.
1816 Ilion Jacket - $395 Named for the birthplace of Remington Arms, this is Remington's take on the waxed-cotton fieldcoat. Besides the ability to take a beating from the elements, this jacket looks stylish enough to wear in settings that don't involve guns and mud.
Italian Woven Linen Belt - $90 Made of Italian linen but assembled in New Orleans, this woven number is Remington's answer to the casual belt. But if that's too boring for you, you can go with the Shotgun Shell Belt ($75) at the top of the page.
Travel Humidor - $350 A man doesn't need that many accessories, but this gorgeous leather travel humidor is certainly one of them. Because a dry cigar is a horrifying thought.
1816 Leather Duffle - $550 Made of soft glove-leather, this bag will last forever, acquiring a unique patina as it goes through the years. Fully lined, the duffle also has a couple of zip pockets to complement the main compartment that can handle a week's worth of clothes.
Goatskin Shooting Glove - $45 Remington knows shooting, so it's not surprising that they've made an awesome glove designed for the task. Breathable and soft, this glove is one of the most reasonably priced pieces in Remington's catalog.
Earl's Cardigan - $350 With cardigans being completely ubiquitous today, you're going to need something like Earl's Cardigan to stand out. Styled more like a jacket with vertical pockets and buttons that go all the way up, this three-season charcoal sweater is made of a wool-cotton blend and (obviously) has suede elbow pads.
1816 Barn Jacket - $235 With a slightly western look stemming from its pleated pocket over the heart, Remington aces the classic barn jacket, perhaps the most iconic essential in the pantheon of dad style. Functional for outdoor work and stylish enough for going out in, this jacket is as versatile as it is comfortable.
