Father’s Day is on Sunday, June 18, 2023. Summertime is a great time to get creative with your plans and your Father’s Day gifts! This celebratory day happens every year and sometimes it creeps up before you’ve even had a chance to think of something clever. Fashion in Detroit has made way for big names like Gucci, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, and Bottega Veneta are making an entrance and getting comfortable.
Detroit menswear and the Detroit fashion industry has evolved into more than just Carhartt though! Several families opt for the funny card with an even funnier t-shirt and/or BBQ apron route for Father’s Day gift ideas. However, diverse Detroit fashion is increasingly making a signature name for itself in the city as we were reminded in our last fashion “IT List”. Who says pink can’t be for men too? K. Walker Collective on this list is bringing something unique to the world of men’s fashion along with other fashion designers offering more color and texture to men’s fashion.
