30 Dads Whose Fashion Sense Inspires Us Every Single Day

Dads are pretty amazing for a lot of reasons, but they aren’t really known for being fashionistas. In fact, most dads have a reputation for being a bit behind the curve when it comes to keeping up with current trends.

Fathers and their questionable fashion choices take center stage on the hilarious Fashion Dads Instagram page. In honor of their killer style choices, we combed through to find the very best in dad fashion, including fanny packs, mix-matched patterns, sandals with socks, and those awesome white New Balance sneakers they all seem to love. Seriously, we’ve never seen this much plaid in one place, and it’s glorious.

1. Is it hot in here, or is it just this dad?!
