The Breakfast Club

Does your dad fancy himself as a bit of an eco-warrior? He’ll totally dig Boss’s limited-edition new trainers made from Piñatex, a textile derived from pineapple leaves. They’re 100% vegan and even come in a biodegradable box. Sustainable never looked so chic.

Food for thought
Take dad for a slap-up Father’s Day feast at Sticks ‘n’ Sushi and if he orders from the meat-heavy ‘man food’ menu he’ll receive a large Saporro beer on the house. Cheers!
