Like father like son

Far from advocating carbon-copy mini-me’s, father/son dressing is all about finding an age-appropriate style and letting it shine through outfits that bridge that generation gap.

They may be cut from the same cloth, but as any dad will tell you, sons (no matter their age), have a sartorial will of their own! Still, there’s no reason why boys shouldn’t look to their dads to teach them how to dress to impress and get them ahead in the style stakes.

Far from advocating carbon-copy mini-me’s, father/son dressing is all about finding an age-appropriate style and letting it shine through outfits that bridge that generation gap.

So whether the pair are off-duty at the park or learning how to smarten up for a special event, here are three looks for grown-ups and little ones, side by side to melt hearts all around.

1. Daddy’s day-off

Everyone knows that men, young and old, adore their day-off comfy clothes. But the boys need to learn that sweatpants don’t have to equal sloppy – instead, they can be stylish, comfy and are perfect for kids on the move.

We melt for this easy Sunday look of matching stylish sweats paired with zip-up parkas perfect for drizzly afternoons in the park. Plimsoles big and small and stripy tees finish both looks-stripes on the sleeves for the kids and a pocket detail, while dad’s is striped all over.

2. Smarty pants

Whether they’re off to visit the grandparents or stopping by a special event, dad and son can get it just right with this collection.

It’s all about being smart without being stuffy, which is why we love this modern take on the classic conservative khaki-polo combo renovated with stone-colored denim.

With father and son both slipped into matching baby blue polos, this perfect preppy-cool ensemble is finished off with grown-up leather deck shoes for daddy, and a printed denim version for junior.

3. Stylish hang-time

Back in the old days, dads focused on teaching their lads how to knot a Windsor and lace up a brogue, prepping them for the uniform of their day. But in 2015, however, the uniform de jour is way less formal.

Introduce the little ones to jeans and trainers with a cool take on dad/lad double denim. We love these coordinating distressed jeans worn with printed indigo graphic tees and hoodies.

Dad keeps his age appropriate with a solid navy zip-up and classic plimsoles while junior gets to have more fun with his hoodie with its grey-to-blue colour and two-tone shoes.
