A Very Vintage Father's Day

My IT guy Vince showed up at a recent appointment armed not only with mad computer skills but also with a tote bag full of vintage vests. He had been digging through his family's attic when he came across a boatload of impeccably cared for vests that his father bought in the late 70's. His dad is an auditor for the NYC MTA.  According to Vince, "modesty is probably the best quality he's shown me."Below is a picture of my most treasured possession from my dad. This old school beauty dates back to his fraternity days in the late 50's and early 60's. It takes softness to another level. Sadly, in a moment of unclear high school thinking, I cut off too much from the bottom. The crop top thing is a little much -- even for this child of the 80's. So it rarely makes an appearance out of doors. The best quality my dad taught me was the importance of hard work and perseverance in overcoming adversity.So on this Father's Day, thank you for the vintage attic finds, for the hand-me-downs, and most of all, for being dad.
