You will always hear that every advice your parents give you is worth listening to. And that truth becomes even more apparent the older you get.
You walk into your father's bedroom or bathroom and you will know that there were secrets—secrets of grooming, of hygiene, of preparation. Go into the bathroom and you will see how he made it his by virtue of what he put in it—lotion, spray, astringent, soap, cleanser, shampoo, deodorant, perfume. His collection of fine-tooth combs, his array of toiletries.
And then you see the way he dresses. Somehow, growing up and seeing your father's outfits basically became random sartorial lessons for you—whether it was done consciously or now.
When it comes to dressing up, there is very little substitute for experience. The idea that dads can't dress is quickly becoming a thing of the past.
