We asked Brooklyn DJ, blogger, and design aficionado Myles Tipley, to clue us in: What do (cool or wannabe cool) dads really want? He immediately supplied us with his own wish list for Father's Day. Above: Myles with his wife (and fellow DJ)  Lindsey  Tipley and their three-year-old, Henry, in Williamsburg. Myles blogs about "vibes and stuff" at Myles Henry . Photograph by Christelle de Castro .  Above: "The design books I've been wanting are Commune: Designed in California  ($37.66),  Modern Originals: At Home with Midcentury European Designers , $35.71, by Leslie Williamson, and photographer Paul Barbera's Where They Create  ($34)." Above: "Can't go wrong with this: Lagavulin 16-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch "; $106.99 from BevMo. Photograph via Tomorrow Started . Above: "And as the perfect companion, I'm into these smoky Hand-Blown Whiskey Glasses ." Made by a small glass studio in Seattle, they're $32 each and $118 for a set of four from Food52. Above: "To add a mellow vibe to my work setup, I have my eye on a  Japanese Ceramic Incense Holder  ($32 each from General Store ). And, to go with it, Stussy's Kuumba International Incense Pack  ($15)." Above: "I really don't wear cologne, but I like this one—sort of a natural scent, and not too overpowering." Bravado 3 by Baxter of California is $85 from Saturdays Surf. Above: "One of the best parts of being married: There's always fancy soap in my house. This is one of my favorites." Kiehl's  Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap  with oat bran and pumice is $15 a bar from Kiehl's. Above: "It's the perfect time of year for a new pair of sunglasses. I've been eyeing  Oliver People's MP-2 Matte Black  ($450) from Gentry." Above: "I'm a hat guy, so there are always about five new ones that I want. I love this  Ball Cap collaboration between Maiden Noir and Sneeze Magazine. A play on an Oakland A's hat, it's just so good"; $45 from Maiden Noir. "And here's another I have my eye on: the Navy Ball Cap  ($95) with a suede rim from Gentry. I usually cheap out on myself and would never spend that much for a cap, but my wife would splurge on it." Above: "I've been into this instant film camera lately. We actually already own one and have started using it to take photos of friends we have over for dinner; our guest shots all go up on a board." The  Fujifilm Instax 210 Camera  is $92 from Opening Ceremony. Above: "My wife and I have been trying to buy original pieces of art for each other. I love these 1990s photos by Lisa Leone." Go to  HVW8  gallery to see more and inquire about pricing. For more ideas from Myles, take a look at his  DJ-Approved Home Stereo Equipment  and DIY: $65 Laundry Closet. Gardenista suggests you consider a DIY Hanging Orchid for Father's Day .   More Stories from Remodelista Will Taylor, Bright Bazaar Founder and Remodelista Judge Editors' Picks: Best of the ABC Carpet & Home Summer Sale Glass Act: Nate Cotterman in LA
