Dear Jenna von Oÿ,

I loved your work on Blossom, where you played the plucky sidekick to Mayim Bialik’s beloved character. She grew up to be kind of a weirdo, right? Oh well. Anyway, I’m doing this series where I take outfits I found in my father’s closet and show the world how they can buy new versions of them using nothing but their brains, the internet, and, like, tons of money. Below is an outfit I plopped together to go with a madras shirt with which I am in love. Madras is just classic. I feel like every year all different brands are like “we’re bringing back madras!” And everyone is all “you just did that, like, last year.” But to quote a wise band of musicians, “I don’t care, I love it.”

Now that I’ve forced you to look at me waddling all over the beach in my dad’s clothing, I’d like to tell you how you can get the look yourself. You’re welcome.

    Showing off all your handsomeness……

  2. yeah…why are you so cute??

  3. You could make a potato sack look cute, you’re so handsome! You have convinced me to get some madras for my husband.

  4. Look at you being all buff!
    My question is, where does Madras start and eccentric Easter golf plaid begin? Is it a fabric thing or a color thing? I sorta wonder. Either way, it’s all kinds of awesome. Go you. Go your dad.
