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.

Gabe Anderson

Gabe Anderson can often be found adventuring around Austin with his spirited daughter, Courtland, and his wife, Charli. He paired his Katie Kime tie with another Austin-based brand we love, Zilker Belts. We love what he said about his favorite part of being Courtland’s dad— “Everything is exciting with her, even if it’s just a trip to the grocery store or Starbucks.”

Q&A

What are some of your favorite things to do with you daughter? 

Reading books at night and our regular daddy/daughter dates.

 

What has been the most rewarding or surprising part of fatherhood? 

The most surprising thing about being a girl dad is how quickly I adapted to the colors pink and purple.

What’s your favorite quote about fatherhood? 

“The greatest gift you can give your children is your time.”

 

What are you hoping your Father’s Day plans entail? 

I’m hoping that I get to watch golf with my daughter for more than five minutes before I have to change the channel to Sofia the First. That’s not going to happen though, and I’m ok with it.
