Who am I?

I’m Nick, a middle-aged Norwegian blogger into classic menswear, tweed, workwear and cool things. I specialise in waistcoats, brogues, denim and outerwear. I care about the ethical production of garments, where and how they are made. I am a staunch supporter of the small and individual makers and brands.

The blog was started in February 2013.

Contact me on WellDressedDad(at)gmail.com, phone meetings by arrangement.

Testimonials:

“WDD’s unrelenting search small batch clothing brands and interest in utilitarian apparel always make his blog an interesting read. He has followed the development of my own store very closely. Customers have come to me on his recommendation. He knows how to match the right customer with the right store” (Danny Hodgson, Rivet & Hide, London, UK)

“Over the past year we’ve had the opportunity to have our product reviewed by Nick at “Well Dressed Dad” on two occasions.  The experience has been great as Nick provides his readers with insightful and critical evaluations of the products he’s reviewing.  I believe his readers value this, which has led to his surge in popularity in a relatively short period.  He’s been great following up with us and very timely in his reviews.  The reviews have definitely provided us with a broader and more informed “audience”.” (Chad, Thoroughstitch, New York, USA)

“Nick has been an absolute pleasure to work with, attentive and innovative. With a wonderful way with words he has helped further our business and boosted our reputation among valuable and attractive demographics. In our experience Nick has provided great value for money and we will definitely be looking to work with him in the future.” (Richard Smith, Shoe Healer, Doncaster, UK)

“Working with Nick is an absolute pleasure. He has been supportive of our brand for many years, and he combines a rigour and natural enthusiasm for menswear, with a refreshingly honest and outspoken way of talking about it.” (Paul Vincent, SHE Kelly, London, UK)

“Not only is Nick extremely well dressed, he has a broad knowledge of the history of menswear that underpins his writing, and actively promotes local industry. As a British manufacturer swimming against the tide of imported goods, we need more bloggers like Nick in the world to remind people why quality matters” (Alec Farmer, Trakke, Glasgow, Scotland)

“I’ve followed Nick from the start, I was drawn to his fresh approach in focusing on fashion aimed at the mature reader with a good eye for quality. That’s why I sought out Nick to see if he would be interested in reviewing our product. I’ve found him easy to work with and supportive of good quality creative projects. It’s no wonder his blog is going from strength to strength and we look forward to opportunities to collaborate in the future.” (Robert Kay, Robert Owen Co, London, UK)

“Nick has a clear and genuine passion for well made, quality menswear and products and being a relatively young brand we really appreciate the continued support he has shown.” (Angela McBride, Common People, Edinburgh, Scotland)

“Whillas & Gunn has had the pleasure of working with Well Dressed Dad for a number of years now. Not only does he have a good eye for detail he is an absolute gentleman. “ (Richard Willas, Whillas & Gunn, Australia)

    Hi,

    I was checking your Instagram pictures and found the one about the battle shirt repro.

    You could try http://whitefeathermfg.com/
    fardinse-on Instagram

    They are specialized in well made reproductions and maybe it’s interesting for them. I would get one too as I like the idea 🙂

    P.s. Thanks for following my me on Instagram I like your stuff too!

    Best

    Hi,
    Nice site. I am a long term Harris Tweed nut (I visited the islands on a youth trip in 1979 – a very long time ago). Stayed with me ever since. Those Swedish army trousers in wool. If you ever run across a pair in W36 L32/33 let me know…!

      Hi Richard, thanks for the feedback. If you’re keen on the wool army trousers, try these guys in Sweden. I’m not sure of their sizing, but they have a good few pairs in stock! http://www.beredskapsboden.se/en/trousers/

    Hi Nick,
    I am new to your blog. Great site!
    I note that you wear size 52 Nigel Cabourn Mallory waist coats.
    what size are you please as I am thinking about my chest size usually 44inch circumstance.
    Second question is what size Mallory tweed coat do you wear if the vest is 52 size.
    Any advice will be most appreciated.
    Best wishes,
    Oliver

      Hi Oliver, thanks for your kind feedback. I do indeed wear 52 in the Mallory waistcoat, but I only wear 50 in the Mallory jacket. You’ll most likely want a size larger in each, as I’m a 42″ chest. I do’t wear my jacket over the waistcoat. Kind regards, Nick
