Dare: I Let Dad Pick My Clothes

For Father's Day, one staffer spent some quality time with her dad and her wardrobe. Hilarity ensued

The dad in charge

This is Kurt, my (Tracy’s) 57-year-old dad. As you can see, he’s pretty fashionable. He’s very into accessories — he’s always wearing a hat, glasses, sport coat or leather jacket — and I figured we’d see eye to eye on most outfits.

When I first told my dad, he burst out laughing, “You want me to do what?!” He wasn’t gung ho at first, but after telling him how we’d spend a nice day together and that I would fix him up a gourmet-ish lunch he obliged. Honestly I don’t think he was too excited about the task before him (despite getting a free lunch). But he was a good sport and manned up for the challenge.
