Dapper Dad

Too frustrated to sort clothes today.. and a little melancholy.  Naturally, Big Life Things tend to put pants in their place.  So, I’d rather just ramble on about my dad’s style instead. it’s worth noting.

I rarely recall seeing my father looking anything but meticulously arranged.  Always cleanly shaved and neatly pressed, on most every occasion, including beach holidays (srsly).  The man likes to groom.  Not obsessively, but he takes pride.  Ushering a Mad Men quality of flair into modern decades, when tucked shirts are considered dressin up!  pristine habits, to say the least.

Wasn’t until we were grown would he consider wearing sneakers. and I still remember the first pair of ‘short pants’ we sold him on. He eventually conceded to the softer polo for casual afternoons (still gotta COLLAR!;) But even in retirement, he never loses the polish.  His dedication to clean living comes across in the smallest details. a nice belt, neat manicure, a fresh cut. it’s all there.

He’s a man’s man. quiet and gentle.  a dad who makes certain his three girls know exactly how awesome they are. heh.

and he does it all with zing;)
