Fab finds for Father’s Day.
Give Dad the gift of a perfectly tailored, custom fit: Linda Miller, local style consultant for J. Hilburn Men’s Clothier, will visit his home or office for a personal consultation. She will measure each client and get to know his style preferences (is he a cutaway collar, French round cuff, no pocket kind of guy?), resulting in a hand-constructed piece of luxury clothing crafted from fine Italian fabrics. Give a gift certificate for a custom shirt or jacket (like this NAVY DRILLINO SPORTCOAT, $425, and RED/NAVY LARGE CHECK SHIRT, $119), or choose from their vast assortment of ready-to-wear pieces (NAVY SILK DOT POCKET SQUARE, $49).

Detroit — the new watchmaking capital of America. This is the goal of Shinola, a new brand inspired by Detroit’s manufacturing legacy. Based in Midtown Detroit, inside the former Argonaut building (now within the College for Creative Studies, with whom the brand has a partnership), Shinola’s watch factory (and bicycle workshop) creates genuine made-in-Detroit products that not only gleam with pride of industry, but also gorgeous craftsmanship (like the SHINOLA RUNWELL). Watches range from $475-$995. Shinola.com.
The legendary BILL COSBY, father of the iconic TV family, stand-up comic extraordinaire, author, winner of five Grammys (for his comedy albums), TV star and ‘80s fashion icon, was also a forerunner of modern race relations — and the first African-American to co-star in a dramatic series (in I Spy), all no small feat for a kid from the Philadelphia projects. Send Dad to see him at 7 p.m. or 10 p.m. Saturday, June 29, at Orchestra Hall. $35-$85. Orchestra Hall at the Max M. Fisher Music Center, Detroit (313-576-5111; dso.org).
