Father’s Day Celebration

We are delighted to be celebrating Father’s Day at Harvie & Hudson. We are proud to say that we have a lovely group of Fathers on our Shop Floor and Head Office. Here is an insight from the Fathers’ at Harvie & Hudson. Read what they had to say about fashion, gift ideas and happy moments as a Father. 

You can find the the perfect gift with us. Explore our Father's Day Gift Ideas Page. 

Has your fashion style changed as a Father? 
Yes, it has. I think it’s because styles have diversified so much, and people have generally gone into business more casual. I have become more colourful over the years and really enjoy wearing smart clothing with casual shoes. You cannot beat quality individual pieces with great fabrics and that are cut well.

What would be your ideal gift for Father’s Day? 
I am already lucky to have access to all my clothing needs! After that I still love a great expensive aftershave, which I get to choose myself because it’s so personal. 

My favourite gift of all is an experience such as a motorcycle track day, balloon flight, or even a nice country pub lunch. 

What is your favourite memory as a Father?
There are so many but perhaps the birth of both of my children were amazing. I’ve also enjoyed travelling to far flung lands with them and watching their faces.  It was cool to watch my son model on a catwalk in Milan live on social media. Most of all watching their characters evolve - I learn more about myself and them every day!


What would be your ideal gift for Father’s Day? 
For Father’s Day I would like a specific bike for road racing. It’s called Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL6 Di2 Road Bike.
What is your favourite thing to do with your kids?
When the end of the week is approaching, I know it's time for the whole family to get together for a meal. I really cherish those moments as a family. 

How would you describe your fashion style in 3 words?
Modern, stylish and trendy. 

What has been your proudest moment as a Father? 
I’ve got three children, so I will share my proudest moment with each of them. I was proud when Lola and George got into Grammar Schools and when I took William on his first roller coaster ride. 

What would be your ideal gift for Father’s Day? 
My gift is kind of expensive, but I would really like to have a piano or a keyboard. 

How would you describe your fashion style?
I am quite traditional without being old fashioned. I’ve never thought of myself as being a trendy person. 

What would be your ideal gift for Father’s Day? 
A day out somewhere special. 

Favourite moment as a Father? 
My favourite moment as a Father was when I saw my daughter being born. It was very special. 

What piece should all men have in their wardrobe? (SS19 collection)
I think all men should have a White Linen Shirt, but my favourite piece is the White and Blue Spot Cotton Shirt.

What is it like working with your Son? 
It’s nice to work with my son because we get on very well. We’re like brothers really. 

What has been your favourite moment with your son, Paul? 
Playing golf at the weekend because he won the golf tournament.  I cried my eyes out. 

What is your favourite gift you’ve received on Father’s Day? 
I collect miniature guitars. Two years ago, I got a miniature version of my friends’ bass, which is the best present I’ve had for Father’s Day in a long time. 

How many children do you have? 
I have one son and he is 28 years old. 

What would be your ideal gift for Father’s Day? 
My ideal gift for Father’s Day would be going out for a nice meal with my family. 

How do you celebrate the special day? 
I usually spend the day with my family.
