Father’s Day Gift Guide: Myles Tipley’s 10 Picks for the Design-Conscious Dad

June 10, 2024

Every year as Father’s Day nears, the Remodelista core team convenes to share our hopes, plans, and pipe dreams. And then we end up saying, “Hmmm, what do you think is on Myles’s list?” Long-time contributor Myles Tipley (@myles.henry.tipley), you see, is the coolest dad we know—and one of the busiest (which is why you haven’t heard from him here in a while).

Myles and his partner, Lindsey Tipley (@djlindsey ), are both DJs. They have a young son and daughter, and relocated from Brooklyn to Atlanta several years ago. Myles is former design blogger and full-time aesthete who ferrets out the fresh and exciting from so many worlds and price points.

And so, when we come calling at the last minute—as we have now annually—Myles always delights us with an off-the-top-of-his head wish list. Here, the latest in his words. For the perusing pleasure alone, we should all send Myles a present!

i missed these the first time around but thankfully the guys at adsum just re r 17
Above: I missed these the first time around but thankfully the guys at ADSUM just re-released the Debut CONNEX DCB41 Speakers, $649, that they created with German audio brand ELAC. Incredible sound quality for the money and such an aesthetically pleasing pair.
such a good looking stainless steel sconce by alvaro ucha rodriguez for lichen; 18
Above: Such a good-looking stainless steel Sconce by Alvaro Ucha Rodriguez for Lichen; $149. The best part is it won’t be a job for dad: no wiring, just hang that thing on the wall and you’re set. As the years click by, I prefer more and more indirect lighting if you know what I mean.

Above: These prints are great for the sports dad. I’m a huge basketball fan, but I find it really tough to have any sports-related art or collectibles out in the house without it looking kind of man cave-ish. But these digital prints by Bradley Robert Ward fill the bill. I’d opt for “God’s Son” of Anthony Mason, one of my childhood favorites. It’s currently marked down to $15 from $60, and there are tons of other great options.
perfect simple weekend shorts made of italian cotton linen , \$3\10, from a.p.c 20
Above: Perfect simple Weekend Shorts made of Italian cotton-linen , $310, from A.P.C. and Montreal design studio JJJJound. JJJJound’s “heritage-inspired staples” are expensive but really top-notch: their T-shirts, sweats, Oxford shirts, etc. are all great, timeless, well-built pieces.
encourage dad to do his very best george costanza impression and eat a snickers 21
Above: Encourage dad to do his very best George Costanza impression and eat a Snickers with a very fancy fork and knife designed by Natalia Criado. Handmade in Italy, her silver-plated brass Artefacto Cutlery Set is pricey—€482—but absolutely beautiful.
i absolutely love my sunday mornings. i play some music in the house, sort of t 22
Above: I absolutely love my Sunday mornings. I play some music in the house, sort of tend to my plants, and flip through a new magazine—such as Popeye, the men’s monthly from Tokyo. An annual subscription runs $163 from importer Magazine Café. But you can score a single issue, including the Popeye June 2024 car issue, for $15.25 on eBay.
on sundays, i also take the time to make myself a proper cup of coffee. i&# 23
Above: On Sundays, I also take the time to make myself a proper cup of coffee. I’d like any beans from coffee roasters Homecoming of Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Currently available: House Jam, $18, the café’s mainstay Ethiopian/Mexican blend.
i really love a hairy suede. these limited edition navy boat shoes, \$350, by m 24
Above: I really love a hairy suede. These limited-edition navy Boat Shoes, $350, by Morjas in collaboration with everyone’s favorite podcast How Long Gone are so damn good. Nice alternative to a loafer and they feel much more elevated than a Sperry-type boat shoe.
nepenthes is one of my favorite clothing shops in nyc (it also has an outpost i 25
Above: Nepenthes is one of my favorite clothing shops in NYC (it also has an outpost in London and six in Japan). I love this large NNY Canvas Tote Bag, $70, of recycled. unbleached canvas with double strap options. Perfect for days at the beach or getting on the boat.
let dad let loose a little. i love a gin martini with a twist in the summer. i  26
Above: Let dad let loose a little. I love a gin martini with a twist in the summer. I have had this Georgia-made gin, Murrell’s Row Gingin, $30, a few times at No. 246 and Kimball House, two of my favorite Atlanta restaurants.
