If you have a father who wants to be fashionable, but never paid more than $50 for a pair of jeans, that’s okay, you don’t have to spend a lot to look great. What matters the most is that the style is appropriate for the body type and it is well fitted.
The question of age appropriate jeans for older men often comes up. My answer to that would be, why can’t a 65 year old man rock a pair of Acne or Ksubi jeans if he wants to? The europeans do it with such ease. If you’ve got the right body type and attitude then why the hell not? Youth is in the mind, body and soul of a person and if you feel good, you’ll look good, granted, you wear the right fitting jeans and keep it simple.
Here is a list of great jeans that daddy can break in without breaking your bank account. Pair any one of these jeans with a crisp gingham button down, a neutral colored sports jacket and shoes for a winning Father’s Day look!
