“The Dad Outfit” Men’s Fashion

Most of us have one and some of us can spot him in a room. But there are some typical outfits we can deem “dad outfits” that can make it like finding where’s waldo in a room full of a men if the conditions are set right. I may be missing a few styles in the mix but these are the one’s I’ve seen most often and the one’s worn outside of the office or work environment. This is an ode to dad but it’s also a homage to adult men’s fashion in general – I bring you the “dad outfits.”
