Dad`s duds - Retna Wooller
HEN it comes to dressing Dad, it takes time, patience and
a local hero to bend him towards the latest trends. Perth
Glory defender Ante Kovacevic took time out between
training sessions to help us show you how to dress your dad this
coming spring. With the season having started at Members Equity
Stadium on Friday, Ante is in fine form for a slick suit or crisp
denims. Whether Dad decides on wearing a colour-treated blazer
over a printed shirt or a pair of boating slacks with a grandpa knit,
he will be ready for whatever next Sunday has in store – barbecue,
picnic or a kick in the park.

Buff up your dad with these 10
metrosexual must-haves for Father’s Day.

$19.95, from The Body Shop. Soap-free, this
menthol-based face wash helps

rash. It also helps to remove excess
oils and impurities.

from clogging, it controls excessive
sebum (oil) production leaving skin less
prone to blemishes.
3. Dermalogica Skin Kit For Men,
$55, from The House Of Ernest, city and
Mt Lawley; Belen, Garden City; TAFE

bathroom cabinet. Five minutes is
all you need to cleanse with the
gel, tone using the Multi Active
Toner and buff with the Skin Prep
Scrub. On oily days the Active
Moist balm is the go. A great
investment for the dad with very
little morning time.
