OUTFIT ESSENTIALS - WHAT YOU'LL NEED...
What could possibly be more endearing than a father and son wearing matching clothes? Not much, is the answer. And since there are only a set number of years in any child’s life where Dad is the ultimate hero-come-style-icon-come-climbing frame, why not make the most of it? Read on for the matching pieces you’re both bound to love.
Time for Tartan
If there's one long-lived trend that we never want to end, it's the classic red tartan shirt. Not only is it one of the most stylish additions that any man can make to his wardrobe, it's also one of the most wearable. Whether you throw it on for tearing around the park or for a chilled Saturday night pizza, you can be safe in the knowledge that it will always be on point.
One of the most versatile pieces a man of any age can have in his wardrobe is the classic crew neck sweater. Pair it with just about anything in your (and his) wardrobe and it will instantly elevate every outfit. The added bonus of dressing your little one in dark colours? It hides a magnitude of accidental spillages.
The desert boot has been worn by stylish men for decades, and that's not about to change anytime soon. Perfect for smarter occasions where you don't feel like dressing up too much, these boots will continuously be a helping hand in both of your everyday outfits.
Pull on the Parka
If you've yet to try the parka, this season is the time. Favoured by some of the world's best-dressed men (here's looking at you, Gallagher brothers) and perfect for trips into the great outdoors when the temperature plummets, make this your standout piece for winter. Getting your little one into a piece as warm as this is the perfect way to keep him outside - and burning off his energy - for longer.
Tried and True Trousers
We will forever wax lyrical about the classic chino, a piece that has served men and boys for years. Picking it in black is a timeless choice that's guaranteed to raise your style game, as well as work wonders with every piece in your wardrobe, no matter what the occasion is. When picking these out for the day, be sure to add a pop of colour or pattern elsewhere in both of your outfits so that the whole thing isn't overly muted.
