My Dad's Better Than Your Dad....

Just kidding, but I think all dad's were cool in the 60s. The lounge jackets available at the time were colorful, unique and made of new fabrics or fabrics that would never have been thought for clothing. ie: upholstery like fabric or drapery like fabric

Remember the old 'car seat cover' joke? Well, you would have to be my age to remember it, but it goes something like this:
"There's a car out there somewhere without it's car seat covers, oh no, it's your jacket."

Sometimes the look was a little over-the-top, but you cannot beat the refreshing change from a grey, black or navy blue dinner jacket.

Mom & Dad, c. 1960s
