A dad is tougher than leather. He has to be, between teaching us how to build fires and sitting through hours of tea parties with equal patience. A dad can seem like a fearless superhero one moment, and the goofiest playmate you ever had the next.
The wisest man who ever lived once said, “Children’s children are the crown of old men, and the glory of children is their father”. If you’re a dad, go be glorious to them. If you’re old, it’s not too late. If you’re young, it’s just the right time. You don’t have to take them to the Serengeti.
Just pick up the phone or take them on a walk to the park and go be the glory of your children that they deserve. And be sure to take your bag along... for legacy purposes, of course. And remember, daughters usually end up marrying and sons end up being someone just like their fathers.
For Dave’s kids, Sela and Cross, the perks of being home-schooled include field trips to the Serengeti. They love learning about animals, but the real lessons of what to value in life are caught, not taught. Watch the first short film in our Not At Home-Schooling series as the kids learn the awe of Animal Sciences, first hand.
The most treasured items we leave behind are the ones that reflect our lives. A father’s daily watch, a grandfather’s barber razor, are not valuable because they are old or gold, but because they tell a story.
Likewise, Saddleback’s leather takes on the marks and scars of your life the more you use it. It’s a sponge of character. And it’ll be around for generations to come.
A good wallet is a thing to respect, and this one lasts a lifetime. Show Dad he taught you how to make a good investment with the best $33 you’ll ever spend.
Some dads are like old bulls: they’re tough, and they never quit. Made with sturdy vegetable tanned leather, our Old Bull Belt can be relied upon with absolute confidence and pride, just like the man himself.
A leather briefcase is the classic legacy item. Whether Dad is a career man or just needs a simple bag for day trips, this iconic thin briefcase will stay strong, adaptable and stylish for years to come.
