Honour Thy Father: Top Picks For This Dad’s Day

Men’s style icons today are not hotshots like Justin Bieber or Kanye West. Rather, style-savvy young men are taking fashion cues from good ol’ dad and even grandpa.

They call it “geezer style” – which really means they are discovering those tried-and-true old-school classics – fedoras, bow ties, tweedy blazers, pocket squares, monkstrap shoes and Hawaiian prints and are adopting them with great relish.

This ode-to-old fashion trend has been flourishing and increasingly growing for a few years now with the advent of popular television shows like Mad Men, which helped put young men in three-piece suits and bow ties.

Hopefully, this homage to the dapper look of mature men is a counterculture revolt to an increasingly casual society where jeans and T-shirts are acceptable everywhere from the office to the opera.

So if the youngsters show up on Father’s Day looking, well, like you, they have finally learned; clothes do make the man.
