Rad dad plaid

When you and your dad show up wearing plaid…


It’s pretty rad.


Both are men’s shirts. His, for obvious reasons. Mine, for comfy cozy reasons.

“Yeah, but is yours Columbia?” he asks me.


No siree. It’s vintage.


Which means this plaid once belonged to someone else’s rad dad.

    Quelle – I actually laughed out loud to your posts

    Kelsey – I LOVE plaid!!! I have the most rad “lumberjack jacket” from Roots that I adore. I got it before everyone and their dog was wearing plaid so I got some interesting looks :) I wore it to visit my friends in Kansas City, Missouri and they started calling me LumberJess. It must be our lumberjack Canadian roots that inspire us to wear plaid
