Father's Day Gift Guide

When's the last time you gave Dad something really special for Father's Day? Something other than, say, a new tie or a can of nuts?

This year we invite you to come to Greenjeans and select something really nice for Dad. Something he'll have for a long time and, whenever he uses it, will think fondly of you.

At a loss for ideas? Here are some suggestions:
