Dropping Hints for Fathers Day

Disgruntled Dads unite! It’s time to stand up for your fatherly rights and start getting the presents you truly want on Father’s Day.

You all know the familiar routine; you tear open the wrapping on Father’s Day and find that ugly t-shirt that is several sizes too small or that ghastly pair of bright pink socks you wouldn’t be caught dead wearing. Then comes the Oscar worthy performance; The forced smile, the struggle to pretend looking pleased with your gifts. We know they mean well, but if you want to receive the gifts you actually WANT on Father’s Day, you will have to start being more cunning.

As luck would have it, a huge amount of new spring stock has just landed at Ron Bennett Big Men’s Clothing, so this is a great opportunity to start dropping some subtle hints and if all goes well, you may just get the gifts you have always desired for Father’s Day.

Here are some tips on how to successfully drop hints:

Verbal hints

A few harmless complaints over the breakfast table about how your clothes don’t seem to fit anymore is a good start. Mention how you saw some great looking new Polo’s in stock at Ron Bennett Big Men’s.


Casually tell your kids how envious you are of your mate’s wardrobe. Talk about how he always seems to wear great looking casual wear and you never seem to have enough clothes for yourself!


Get in early. Be cunning and put the idea into their heads several months beforehand and then never mention it again. If you’ve left it too late this year, make sure you get in early next year. The beauty of this method is that they will think the snazzy jacket or pair of shorts they bought for you was actually their idea.


Don’t be ashamed to get competitive. If you really want something special, why not casually tell your kids how your work mate’s children bought him a great looking present for Father’s Day last year. Give them a little push to get them upping the stakes. It’s a cheeky method, but it may just get results!

Product Placement

Get covert and leave a Ron Bennett Big Men’s catalogue open in the kitchen or on the coffee table with the items you like circled in a bright red marker. If this doesn’t get through to them, nothing will!

Dads of the world have no more excuses. Use these hint dropping techniques and you will be finally getting the Father’s Day gifts you want. If you have left it too late this year, start preparing for next year.

Good Luck!

Michael Phelps: Tall Man with Style

He is now officially the most decorated Olympian of all time and while we are used to seeing this incredible American swimmer collecting gold at the Olympics, Michael Phelps faces the challenge of many men when it comes to dressing outside the pool. At 6 foot 4 inches, he needs to find clothes that cater to his huge athletic frame and build.

We know that it can be challenging for any big and tall man to find clothing that suits him, but it shouldn’t mean you can’t show your own definitive style. Here’s Michael Phelps looking cool in a simple white T Shirt.

It’s all about coordinating your clothes to find your own specific style and look. A decent fitting pair of jeans can set the tone for any street-smart ensemble. Throw on a casual shirt and you’ve got yourself a great edgy look.

For a more refined occasion, it is as simple as matching a stylish suit with a smart, comfortable shirt.

Being a big and tall man doesn’t mean you have to cut back on suave style. Just look at how Michael Phelps wears this classic black suit and tie combination.
