Raj and Izzy. Upper East Side of New York City. April 2014.

Raj is a finance guru, not sure how he does it, but he makes people money.  He does a lot of research and uses his Ivy League education well..Raj grew up in Southern California, but has spent most of his life on the East Coast.  I’ve never seen Raj look unkempt – even when the dude jogs he looks like he belongs in a J.Crew catalog.

Raj used to cruise around in a vintage, apple red Vespa–which he sold to my brother, but he looked pretty cool riding around NYC  -now he’s a dad sporting a baby carrier, and carries it well, almost like a page out of Details Magazine.

Fashion Notes: Jeans: Adriano Goldschmied, Loafers: Camper, Shirt: custom (of course), Baby Carrier: Britax

I would take some tips from Raj Fellas – custom made shirts are so worth the price, a fitted button down looks amazing and well made – quality over quantity!

Waldorf Dad

San Rafael, California. September 2013.

Fashion Notes: Shoes: Simple, Button down: Faconnable, Jeans: Levi’s, Zip up cardigan: Paul & Shark (hand me down from his stylish dad)

This dad is lucky, because he looks great in clothing.  He has such a clean cut look and in my “expert” opinion can get away with wearing any style, no matter how trendy.  His preppy look reminds me of a beautiful Fall day in New England.. elegant, simple and rustic. Additionally, he drives a VW Van, which makes for an even better fashion editorial (next time I will include the Haute vehicle).

In addition to his day job, this father is a talented photographer.
