About & contact

Who am I?

I’m Nick, a middle-aged Norwegian blogger into heritage menswear, tweed, workwear, good shoes and interesting things. I specialise in waistcoats, brogues, denim and outerwear. I care strongly about the ethical and environmentally sound production of garments, in addition to where and how they are made. I am a staunch supporter of small and individual makers and brands.

By trade, I am a civil engineer and software developer.

The blog was started in February 2013. The Instagram @welldresseddad a while later. In 2020 I also started the Garmology podcast. There is also Garmology on Youtube.

Contact me on WellDressedDad(at)gmail.com, phone or Skype meetings only by prior arrangement.


Do you accept guest posts or paid post? No, please stop asking. I am happy to discuss collaborations, reviews and similar though.

Would you like to visit us and write about us? Yes, possibly, but please realise I don’t blog for profit and will require my expenses covered at the very least.

    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!

    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,

    • nick 18/12/2016 at 07:36

      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

    Any chance of an article on silk handkerchiefs?

    • nick 31/07/2019 at 11:38

      I have to confess that silk handkerchiefs are something I don’t own and have no real experience of. What would you like such an article to contain?

      • Phil James 31/07/2019 at 20:34

        Reason for having a pocket handkerchief – adding a bit of sartorial elegance without the need for a tie.
        Not having matching handkerchief and tie.
        Ways to fold a pocket handkerchief.
        Materials that these handkerchiefs can be constructed from.
        Silk heritage – e.g. Macclesfield silk museum.
        Buying vintage – which brands to look out for e.g. Turnbull and Asser.

    Hei Nick
    Might I direct your attention to the movie News of the World, where Tom Hanks wears a fabulous coat. Oh the lust!

    Hello there I was intrigued by your grandfathers Hector Powe suit. In a sideways google I found out that famous comedian Tony Hancock worked for Hector Powe for an impressive four hours around 1940, his first job, on Richmond Hill in Bournemouth where I grew up. His first comedy performance not long after was in the church hall of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church, where my parents were married. Small world

      I’m constantly surprised at how small the world can seem. Mostly based on random occurences, mind you, but human connections range widely.
