This month, we celebrate Dads. They are strong, fearless, and often times, let’s face it, the “fun one.” In honor of Father’s Day, we had the Dads we admire try on our custom made Katie Kime ties* and talk about what they love most about fatherhood. Our Dads share what their dream Father’s Day plans entail, and of course, their Dad style.
