Get ahead, get a hat

Baseball caps have long been the style of choice for certain men, but originality in the look is decidedly lacking. Keep cool this summer with the Toquilla Panama hat (above; HK$4,295) from Dunhill. It protects the skin from the sun's rays while still looking mucho suave. Roll the hat up and toss it in your bag, car or desk for the days when you need it. Available from Dunhill, Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 2537 1009.

It's a wind-up

Don't know what to get the man who has everything? You can surprise watch collectors with the luxurious Winder Watch box (right; HK$79,000) by Agresti for Father's Day. Handmade by Florentine artisans, this case isn't just for storage - it comes with a new technology that keeps automatic watches wound and on time. He'll never have an excuse to be late again.
