How to Get Rid of Dads’ Clothes at Home
Posted On July 15, 2021
The most common reasons people buy dads clothes are to save money on the annual travel expenses and to save time, said Chris Behar, a sales and marketing expert for New York-based company Laundry, which sells fathers apparel and accessories.
“But you can also get rid of the clothes and get rid with the family,” Behar said.
For some people, though, it can be hard to get rid or even replace their dads clothes because they don’t have the money or the time to get a new set.
For those who have already gotten rid of their dads wardrobe, there are ways to replace or add some items.
For those who already own a dad suit or coat, Behar suggests looking for one that has a “kids” button on the back, as well as buttons that look like the logo for a local business.
If the business name is the same as the name of the dad suit, you can add an “X” to indicate that the father’s suit should be made in that area.

For kids, the biggest change to dads clothes comes when it comes to the pocket, or “pockets.”
While most dads are comfortable using a pocket in their clothes, Beyer says a pocket can make a difference for moms and dads.
“A mom will want to put something inside their pocket because she doesn’t want her pockets to get in the way,” Beyer said.
“Dads are much more comfortable wearing their pockets on the outside.”
For moms, Beyers suggestion is to make sure that dads suits are made in the area where they live.
If your dad suits are only made in a certain area, you might need to find a new company that makes suits in your region.
For dads with kids, it’s important to take care of their gear.
Behar recommends purchasing a dads suit for every trip they take to work, school, or other events.
“When you’re out of town, you should always take your dads suit off when you leave, and put it back on as soon as you come back,” Behhar said, adding that dads should always have a bag and a pocket protector in their pocket.

You can also use a pocket on the inside of the jacket for a safety pocket or pocket protector if you are using a jacket as a dress shirt.
Behar said dads should be aware of how the pocket is closed, as it can affect the fabric’s strength and flexibility.
“If you have a pocket that has the wrong side up, it will tear, or it will stretch out, and that could cause a problem when you’re walking,” Behart said.
If a pocket is too small, it could create a gap between the jacket and your clothing.

“It’s really important to wash everything you own, especially when it’s a new one,” Beher said.
When it comes down to the clothes themselves, Beharth recommends buying the same clothes you wear when you go shopping.
“If you want a more feminine look, go with a skirt or a blouse,” Behe said.
