5 Styles Your Old Man Rocked That Are Still Awesome Today
Dad's style choices get a bad rap. Sure, some choices were way off base, but occasionally the old man would hit the style nail on the head.
The old man also stayed loyal to brands -- especially those that stayed true after years of wear and tear. Plenty of the dad's favorite brands are pumping out new styles today, updated for the modern man with a family of his own.
Here are some of dad's favorite brands bringing the old school to a new generation of men.
Converse celebrates a quarter century of quality eyewear by releasing a collection of limited edition Converse Anniversary Frames designed with a retro spin. The classic square optical frames and sunglasses are available in six color combinations these shades tell the story of the brand’s rebellious roots with a modern spin.
The "dad jacket" is still around but with updates even the old man would applaud. This awesome combo bomber jacket is sturdy and ready for anything you throw at it. The heavy nylon body and polyurethane sleeves make the jacket an effective windbreaker, and its sleeve pockets will definitely come in handy. Dad wishes he had as many pockets for his stuff.
Lee has come a long way since being your old man's weekend uniform. These regular fit, boot cut jeans has the same classic fit and authentic five pocket styling as dad's regular faves but with an 18" bootcut leg opening. Dad jeans -- without all the pointless butt room.
The shoes your old man wore for comfort -- and just in case he ever owned a boat. Named after the messenger of the sea, this Triton Three-Eye communicates true nautical style. Available in premium full grain leather, the leather quarter lining and fabric vamp lining provide sockless comfort. Dad loved going sockless.
You can still see those gold toes, up on the coffee table after a long day doing whatever it was the old man did to collect a paycheck. Goldtoe still makes durable socks, but in new styles for the modern dude.
