STYLE ADVICE

STAFF STYLE: DADS VS US

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.
