The Sartorialist Teams up with Kiehl’s for Father’s Day

PageDaily caught up with The Sartorialist, Scott Schuman, at Kiehl’s flagship store in New York City where he was celebrating the launch of The Sartorialist for Kiehl’s Limited Edition Dopp Kit for Men.

The kit makes a perfect Father’s Day gift and is available at Kiehl’s stores worldwide, where you can also see Scott’s photos of New York Dads. 

Scott got started taking pictures of the world’s best dressed people on the street by simply riding his bike around for 4-5 hours a day, 3-4 days a week.  He has photographed countless people in New York and other cities around the world.

“I wanted to create something for a man on the go,” Scott explained. The Dopp Kit is great for anything from a business trip to a weekend getaway, or for everyday use.

Chris Salgardo, President of Kiehl’s USA, was also there to celebrate the launch of this product and campaign.

The Dopp Kit contains Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash, Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment, Facial Fuel No-Shine Lip Balm, Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream White Eagle, and the “Ultimate Man” Scrub Soap.

2. For the “Well-Groomed” Dad: ARCONA Men Starter Kit
Is your dad interested in keeping his skin looking good, in the most natural way possible? ARCONA MEN is an all natural luxury skincare line created just for men.  These fresh-smelling products contain live, active ingredients which make them unique. Celebrities such as Adrien Brody and Steve Carell have been using them for years.  My husband was the tester and is now a big fan too. I like the sleek packaging and the products have clever “manly” names such as efficiency, productivity, consistency, proficiency and restore.  Kit includes a daily cleansing bar, moisturizer, exfoliating facial scrub, skin toner pads (perfect quick fix to relieve razor burn) and wrinkle-repair formula.

3. For the “Athletic” Dad: Under Armour’s Men’s UA Charged Cotton™ T-Shirt
Whether Dad goes to the gym every morning, likes to go for a run, or plays a game of pick-up basketball every now and then, Under Armour has an array of apparel fit for him. Under Armour’s new line, Charged Cotton™ combines the company’s original wicking technology that allows for breathability with the softness and durability of cotton. In fact, this is the first performance cotton t-shirt that actually dries much faster than regular cotton. Worried about sweat stains or poor quality? Under Armour Charged Cotton™ will keep Dad cool and dry, allowing him to perform as usual, while still looking great. I love the variety of bright colors available.
