dad’s denim days.


not my dad, but similar to his 70s denim suit that really made a bold statement

happy birthday to my dad, no longer with us, but whose sense of style remains.


“you can tell what was the best style of your father’s life,

because they seem to freeze that clothing style and ride it out.”

  1. We do remember the strangest (well not really – maybe different) things about our dads that maybe no one else does.
    My father was a col in the army and or course looked very spiffy in his uniform. But I remember him best in his work coveralls down in the basement where he did his woodworking projects. I loved making little roads in the sawdust. 🙂

  2. Cheers to our dads’ styles past, Beth. Denim never goes off the racks, I say. Sadly I must report that I somehow followed my father’s cue to a leisure suit jacket when I was young and impressionable. That imprint did not last long in my lineup … nor in the stores!

  3. I didn’t own a pair of jeans until 1990, when I was 38 years old. I bought them to wear when riding a motorcycle in London, to protect my legs if I had an accident. Until then, I had never considered them to be smart enough. I only ever thought of them as ‘workwear’.
    I haven’t owned any since the year 2000, even though I am hardly very smartly dressed these days.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Denim forever! I grew up in blue jeans, was devastated when the school said girls couldn’t wear them anymore. But my dad was a doctor. I don’t recall that he ever wore denim, although I’ve no recollection of what he did wear on days off.
