Happy Labor Day with Dad Threads..

Hope you all enjoying your Labor Day weekend. Yes, it's a day off work but we here at SD would like to give the spotlight of the week to a fellow Dad, Jamison Wheeler better known as Dad Threads. We had the pleasure of asking James a few questions about "Fatherhood" and his Style.

What was your inspiration  to start DadThreads ? DT- When you become a dad, it's easy to give up on how you present yourself. Dressing up becomes really low priority if you're not careful. But then I realized, your kids don't want to look back at pictures of their old man dressed like a slob that dedicated his mid-life years to them. No, as noble as that is, instead they want you to look like the coolest man that walked the earth. We all know how it feels to look back at our dads from the 70's...... I think that imagery is important to children. So with that, I started curating images of fashion that I as a dad found appealing, to help keep it top of mind....and there you go, it worked and @dadthreads was born.. Where do you getting your fashion swag from? DT- I'd have to say from my parents, both of whom always dressed well. Also from my wonderful wife that has always been ahead of the trend and just has that eye for what looks good.

What the biggest piece of advice you would give to other fathers out there?  DT- The same advice most fathers would have for any new dads. While you give your everything to be the best provider you can be, don't forget to stay connected, change the diapers, read the stories. My kids are still pretty young but I can already feel it, these times are the most precious and will pass by the quick. Treasure them. What’s your favorite part of being a Dad? DT- Hearing my name "daddy" called for any reason, for an inquiry, help, to challenge me, and lately even to help me out. I just adore being their dad.

Whats your favorite thing to do with your kid/kids? DT- Getting involved in their sports playtime. Baseball, basketball, tennis. Right now they are really interested in the science of hot wheels cars and tracks, so I get involved with the construction of new tracks on a daily basis. I think it's extremely healthy play as they create their imagined designs, troubleshoot problems etc..Having them help me with @dadthreads. They give me their ideas and suggestions on styling

Ok, Every Swaggerdad has their favorite sunglasses, what's yours? and why? DT- Other than the Tom Ford ones that I lost recently, I'm happy to default to my Ray Bans or Kent Wangs. SD-Great Choices!!
