It is “Time” to be the Cool Dad with today’s watch giveaway.
Yesterday I was reading a news article on Independent.com when I saw another post they had written about how Dad-fashion was one of the top trending looks of the year.
Dad Fashion is Trending
“It’s not entirely clear how “dad” fashion became so trendy, though it’s a look that has been increasing in popularity in recent years, with Vogue dubbing it “
They go on to say… “In June, the New York Times said “dads are now at the center of the style universe”, while the Wall Street Journal concurred, praising “dad style” for its retro appeal that prioritizes comfort by way of orthopedic-looking shoes and cozy knitwear.
Its stratospheric ascent from a heavily mocked aesthetic to a bona fide trend could also have something to do with the rise in Nineties fashion, given that the two are somewhat similar.”
So what does “Dad Fashion” look like?
Well, for this dad of four, it looks like comfort, whatever that means. Running around to baseball games, lacrosse games, dance and more leaves little room for much “fashion” so I go for comfort.
However, according to the media, DadFashion is…
- Vacation Shirts (Hawaiian shirts)
- Tucked in T-shirts
- Stonewashed jeans
- White Tennis Shoes
- Dad Caps (baseball hats that are looser)
- Half-Zipped fleece
- A technical jacket (waterproof & a little oversized)
So… to my wife… just a note that I’m actually more stylish than you previously thought. 🤣
Not to worry – I did add some actual fashion & function to the mix- I just ordered myself this Dover Koa & Black Jord Watch.
It’s a mix of natural & re-claimed materials, so it definitely puts me on the sophisticated side… don’t you agree? (If you don’t… no need to tell my wife!)
PS- Thanks to Jord, they are going to be giving away a $100 gift certificate towards any watch for to one winner You can enter here: http://www.jordwatches.com/g/yourmoderndad
