My Dad Still Wears Denim Shirts

1 Dec

On Thanksgiving, per usual, my dad went to my mom’s house to eat lunch. And, per usual, he was wearing something hideous.

Over the years, I have lived through many a horrendous outfit worn by my father. The high-water jeans, the lack of socks, the ties that I’m certain he found in a dumpster – I could go on and on. One time, when I was in high school, I drove up with a group of friends to find my dad wearing a shirt that read, “Cheerleaders are Athletes.” Being MY t-shirt, you can imagine how tight it was on a grown man.

So, it’s usually expected that my dad will have on something embarrassing. (In cases where it truly matters, like weddings and the like, I hand pick an outfit and threaten his life if he changes the plan.) But, when that man walked up wearing two different shades of denim, I almost busted out laughing. Denim shirts really weren’t acceptable when they were “acceptable” with a pair of khaki pants back in the 90’s. Yet, there he was: Denim on top, denim on bottom. Yowza.

Just when you think you’re immune to his bad style, he shows you that it can always get worse. Bless his heart.

    There is nothing wrong with not wearing socks.

    Oh Mandi, when are you going to learn? You know you can't do nothing with Jack! Personally, I thought Jack was "rockin" that denim shirt far better than we did back in the late 90's! 🙂

    Ben,Nothing wrong with it with whilst wearing tennis shoes and high-water jeans?CAC-You are right, I should've learned by now. That man will rock his gold coin necklace and star diamond ring (you know, the one with the blue diamonds at the points that HAD to have been owned by Elvis Presley at some point) forever.Anon-True. But I really wouldn't be surprised if he does one day.
