Give your dad the gift of a new style and a dose of nostalgia for Father’s Day with the latest trend for men — Jerry Seinfeld fashion. Jeanne Beker pairs button downs with baggy jeans and ’90s-approved sneakers to give Dad the whole look.
A. SUCKER FOR SEERSUCKER
“Lavender is a colour that came on strong last year and is bigger than ever now. I really like the seersucker texture of this shirt. Obviously it’s great with denim.” Outclass, $220, 343 Roncesvalles Ave.
B. STRIPED STATEMENT
“This is a very classic shirt. You could certainly wear it with a pair of jeans or bring it up a notch with a classic grey suit. Stripes are very groovy these days.” 18 Waits, $230, 990 Queen St. W.
C. RED-Y TO GO
“Everyone’s talking about a pop of colour, and this is one that your dad probably doesn’t have. It would look fantastic with a pair of black jeans.” Klaxon Howl, $198, 1473 Queen St. W.
D. BACK TO BLACK
“It’s always great to have a pair of black jeans. These ones have that relaxed fit. I think they’re very hip, and Dad might appreciate the comfort level of them.” Blue Button Shop, $509, 1499 Dundas St. W.
E. SKATER MAN
“Everyone loves a classic Levi’s pair, and they have a current feel to them because they’re baggy despite the Seinfeld inspiration. They look perfectly faded, perfect for summer.” Levi’s, $118, 1 Bass Pro Mills Dr.
F. DON’T DITCH THE DARK WASH
“These look like a no-nonsense jean, so classic. They’re the kind of jean that you could wear forever, and it’s great to have a dark wash jean in rotation.” TNT, $335, 2901 Bayview Ave.
