STYLE ADVICE

STAFF STYLE: DADS VS US

By Sam Higgins, 18 June 2017

You may not have thought it growing up, but it turns out your old man’s taste in clothing was probably surprisingly on-trend – maybe he was even rocking some of the looks we've been recently repping ourselves. So, to give our dads some deserved attention on Father’s Day, we’ve taken a look at how some of the best-dressed at ASOS HQ fare against their stylish parents at a similar age.

Describe your dad's style: I basically rock this exact outfit sometimes. It's sort of 70s folk-rock hipster meets rustic English novelist-core.

Describe your dad's style: Evidently we have the same taste in colours and, like me, Paul opts for comfort with a casual edge over everything else.

Describe your dad's style: He was a mod back in the day and still loves a Fred Perry polo shirt, but generally, he keeps it classic.
