Dads Who Do Vintage

Happy Father’s Day! Today is a special day to celebrate the men in our lives and thank them for everything they do for us. Whether you’re a dad, stepdad, father-in-law, grandpa, godfather or anyone else who is a male role model, we hope you’ve had a brilliant day with your loved ones. We thought it would be fitting to pay homage to some of our dad customers who love wearing vintage clothing and find out a little bit about their sense of style. Say hello to our ‘dads who do vintage’ - Alan, Errol and David!

Vintage Dad Errol

Errol

Why do you like vintage clothing?
I like vintage fashion because - It makes me feel put together, smarter, and I enjoy embracing old-school life! It's a great feeling wearing something timeless and classy.

What is your favourite era?
I admire the 1940s era. The hardships and adversities faced helped to develop that nostalgic iconic community spirit, great music, and the 'make-do-and-mend' movement, and appreciate the little joys in life. I like to incorporate those moments in my modern-day life now.

Who is your vintage fashion icon?
No singular person is my icon, per se. I enjoy the many vintage events across the country all year, so I take inspiration from marvelling at everyone else's style. I love my wife's style too. She's the one who inspired my style upgrade!

Do you attend nostalgia events? If so, which one is your favourite?
I do, as many as I can juggle! Great Central Railway was my first event last year and has been my favourite so far. The steam trains; the bygone era; and buzzing atmosphere. It was a pivotal moment for me to join this great community.

Favourite product from Revival?
I really like the shirts. They fit very well and feel like they're tailored to me. I've got nine so far! The cotton is of high quality too. I like the different collar designs; they're my 'everyday' shirt now!

Give us your best fashion tip.
I tend to plan my outfits around my chosen tie of the day. They're a great conversation starter too. Choose items that you feel comfortable in, dress to impress, and enjoy what you wear!
