Dotsuit: The future is a bodysuit with dots on


Since the advent of the industrial revolution way back around 1760 to 1830, the garment industry has been pretty much business as usual. Some may argue that there has been immense innovation, but if you look at it with a realistic eye, it’s spinning, weaving, cutting and sewing that fills the days. Yes, fast fashion and offshoring might count as…

An unfashionable Kickstarter from Sweden


We’re pretty much all in agreement that fast fashion has to be taken out and put in the trashcan. The one for recycling, naturally. We all know that the current pattern of consumption is ludicrous and damaging to the environment and not sustainable at all, on any level. Producing clothes that are so cheap that you don’t even care if…

Tønsberg, doing my bit for my hometown


This Saturday I was invited by the chamber of commerce in my hometown Tønsberg to add a little #dadstyle to their Autumn event. Not something I’d usually feel very comfortable with, but there isn’t much competition locally in the category “Middleaged male bloggers into traditional men’s style”, so it was down to me to represent the men of the town.…

Anniversary- Well Dressed Dad is 5 years old!


Dear readers and fellow garment gazers, we have reached an anniversary: a full five years of the Well Dressed Dad blog. No mean feat really, in a world where the only certain thing is that anything that seems utterly spot on and relevant today will be replaced by something entirely new within a surprisingly short time. When I started the…

The “Country style” theme week summarised


Two weeks ago I announced my intention to do a week-long theme week on Instagram, with “Country style” as the topic. The idea was to narrow the focus a little, so instead of lying awake all night trying to decide on what outfit to wear next day (I tell a lie, I sleep quite soundly, though sadly not soundlessly), I’d…

My first theme week on Instagram!


This week I’m going to try something new on my Instagram feed, a whole week dedicated to a single theme. Yes, I know my more or less randomly selected images are hugely popular around the world, but this week I’ve set myself a challenge. The intention is both fun and to give my ideas a little focus. My chosen theme…

Introducing “The Garmsman Dozen”, a new weekly feature


Over the past almost five years, and over 500 posts, it’s pretty much been me and my whims that have provided the topics I’ve written about, which might be considered eclectic or wide-ranging, at least within the quite narrow scope of being more or less related to menswear. And that’s good, as it’s only my motivation that drives it, it’s…

Pitti Uomo, my report from not going there ever


I have a terrible unawareness when it comes to the menswear tradeshows. I never seem to know when they are, I’ve never applied for a press pass and hence, I never get to go. I tell a small lie, I did in fact manage to apply once, to Bread & Butter in Berlin, and did get the press pass, but…

Help me out: What should my next project be?


Having finished up the “Foreman” jacket I find myself at a lose end now. Getting back into sewing has been kind of fun and I want to keep up the momentum. Plus, it’s been truly gratifying to receive so much feedback and support, so I’d like to ride the wave of approval and crack on with another piece of home-made…
