Father’s Day Inspiration

Your dad is one very special guy in your life. He has been there for you for everything, both good and bad! Everything from you first time you rode a bike, to your first heart break, and of course he will be there to walk you down the aisle and hand you off to the man of your dreams. You know what they say – your dad is the first man you have ever loved!
Being the guy that your dad is, he will let you have all the spotlight on your special day. Which is why it is important to give your dad the spotlight that he deserves this Father’s Day! All of us at Calluna put a few ideas together you can do with you good ol’ dad!
Visit a Brewery 
If your Dad is a beer guy or even if he isn’t – take him to visit a brewery. It is the perfect activity for any afternoon and Colorado , especially the Boulder and Denver area, is the hub for some of the best breweries around! You can go and get a flight of beer to try and if you are lucky grab a tasty treat from the food truck parked outside!
Some of the top ones to put on your list to check out:

Go and do something with your dad that he is passionate about! All Dad’s have at least one thing that they love to do – be it fly fishing, hiking, biking, rock climbing, you name it. The activities are endless and Colorado happens to be the perfect backyard for all of these activities! You could even chance it and take your daddio on an adventure he has never even done before – like go do a high ropes course and put your abilities to the test!
Get Your Sport On
There is also the opportunity to get some tickets to a sporting event! Now that the weather has jumped back into summer temperatures and The Rockies are in full swing perhaps take your Dad to watch a ballgame and while you are there grab one of the famous Mile High hot dogs! Yum!
Or you could even go the extra mile – with football season just around the corner, and the first NFL game for the Broncos kicking off here in Colorado perhaps surprise your Dad with some too good to be true tickets!
Good Things Come in Small Packages 
Perhaps your dad is need of some new clothing! Check out Nod & Rose, Cedar & Hyde, and Bespoke Edge to get your dad all geared up in something both trendy and that he will absolutely love!

Or you could go the more sentimental route and get your dad a personalized phonebook or calendar from our favorite, Artifact Uprising!
Whatever it is you choose to do with your dad this Sunday be sure to remind him how much your dad means to you and how lucky you are to have such a strong and steady man in your life! We hope you and your dad have a fabulous weekend! xx, Calluna

Vendor Spotlight :: The Bespoke Edge

We are jumping back into the vendor spotlights that we love oh so much by welcoming The Bespoke Edge onto our beloved blog. If you are in need of an ahhhhmazingg set up for your groom-to-be (and who doesn’t?!) then you have stumbled upon exactly that! We had the honor of sitting down and chatting with Ryan Wagner, one of the partners in this fabulous family run business. Read on to catch up on our interview.


Describe what you do.

At The Bespoke Edge, we offer the custom clothing experience to men. We sell suits and tuxedos and shirts and pants and so on, but what we really do is provide sartorial guidance. We help you to find exactly what you’re looking for. That may mean helping you to decide between a three or two piece suit, choosing a jacket lining that matches your bride’s flowers, or helping you to build a one-of-a-kind date night dress shirt. We really take pride in showing guys how they can boost their style.

We don’t have a physical store, but we operate by appointment. What that means is that my father, Ron Wagner, will visit a client in his home or office to learn more about the client’s needs and what sort of style he wants. Ron has been in the menswear business for almost 40 years now he will guide you through choosing a fabric (we have 100’s of fabric samples available to look at) and of course, to take your measurements. About 5 weeks later, Ron will deliver the finished product and personally ensure that everything came out exactly as expected.


What is your dream project?

It would be so much fun to dress not only the groom in a custom fitted BE suit, but his groomsmen as well. That would be one sharply dressed wedding party!

Why should grooms choose you?

Simply put, grooms are amazed at the level of detail that they have control over when building a suit. For instance, one of the most requested custom details we offer is to monogram the wedding date inside the jacket lining. SO that whenever the client is wearing his suit or tux in the future, he will find a thoughtful reminder of his wedding day inside his jacket. We can also accent a jacket with detail like contrast stitching or even colorful buttons. And the finished product is truly something that cannot be bought in a store; that is what makes buying a bespoke suit so special.


What makes you excited to go to work in the morning?

Knowing that we have a growing community of men (and women) who look to us for their sartorial advice. For instance, we put a considerable amount of time and energy into our blog to ensure that it features both practical and inspiring style advice. A lot of the answers to questions that guys want to ask, like when they should wear a peaked versus notched lapel on their jacket, or how to fold a pocket square, aren’t readily available. Plus, as guys, we often feel that we should know the answers to these questions already!


What’s your favorite trend you are seeing in your industry?

We have worked with a lot of grooms to date and what we are learning is that many guys are doing away with the concept of renting a tuxedo and instead, opting to buy a nicely fitted suit that they can then wear after the wedding. Be it at the office or for a fancy night out on the town. In short, a lot of guys are looking at their weddings as a great time to get that suit that they have always wanted. It’s awesome to see guys dressing up more these days!



These suits truly are a showcase of tried and true craftsmanship and they certainly get the stamp of approval from all of us at Calluna. We hope we have inspired you and your sweetie to look into getting one of these special suits for your big day! Without a doubt your hubby-to-be will look very dapper. xx, Calluna
