This Father's Day, we wanted to give a deserving dad the ultimate Barkers experience. A wardrobe update, a fresh cut and a day to remember.

Hamish nominated his dad Chris, who "is most deserving of an amped up Father's Day, after years of hard grafting, patience and decency to everyone who happens to cross his path (or call a favour at 2am)." We flew him down from Auckland to Christchurch so they could spend the weekend catching up.

Spending a leisurely morning at Barkers The Crossing, Chris and Hamish checked into the Groom Room for The Whiskey Sour. The ultimate cut, shave and facial our barbers have on offer. Once they had relaxed and sharpened up with a fresh cut, we took the opportunity to hook them up with some new threads with a personal styling session.

Just as we were winding down, we asked our good friends to pop in for a surprise. Watch how the day unfolds.
