The Best Brands You And Your Dad Can Both Wear

Have you seen lookbooks by brands that use older dudes as their models? I know, I’m always surprised at how ill old dudes look in contemporary brands too. Which got us thinking, what are some of the best brands that both you and your dad can wear? Bridging the stylistic gap between father and son isn’t as easy as it sounds. First, you have to weed out all of the batshit crazy stuff that the Internet has convinced you is cool and flattering when it really just makes it look like you shit your pants and have a wicked Asian Fetish. Then you have to ditch out the wack dad brands that sacrifice fit and natural fibers for things like sweat resistance and being cheap as fuck. Despite all that, you're surprisingly left with a pretty amazing list of brands that you and pops could wear without either of you changing up your style all that much. Now that you both dress alike, how about you follow his lead and get a real job and a sense of responsibility?

    The list is great, except my dad will wonder why the fuck some of these cost more than my college text books. If his credit card statement shows a charge from a place called Deluxe for over $100, my mom will go rip shit thinking he went to a strip club.

    “it’s no surprise that almost every American male has probably owned at least one item from Carhartt in his lifetime” – That’s kind of stretching it…
