Grandpa, You Look Maw-va-lous!!
Posted on April 8, 2012
In my last post I mentioned that Grandpa Bob, on most days, opted to wear his utilitarian, multi-purpose, I-can-plant-a-tree-and-fix-a-car-at-the-same-time work outfits. I remember his prefered colors being navy blue, dark brown, and tan. And, as you can see in the pictures above, he prefered to go monochromatic. His closet consisted of multiple pairs of the same shirts and pants. Grandpa wanted to keep things simple, and his clothes were no exception.
The following pictures are just a sample of the special moments when Grandpa Bob showed his more formal side when it came to fashion. His inner Frank Sinatra did not surface often, but when it did, it left an indelible mark in everyone’s memory:
Is it a coincidence that the majority of Grandpa’s most fashionable moments were when he was alongside his wife of 45 years? Probably not.
The love of your life has the ability to always bring out the best in you, but not in the “You HAVE to wear this tux, honey” kind of way.
When you feel loved by your partner, you have no choice but to radiate positivity, and that leads to looks in your direction…whether or not you are wearing the most expensive suit in your closet.
So, we can say that the pictures above (and many others that I plan to add to this post soon) do not only show Grandpa at his most dapper, but they also show Grandpa feeling loved. The snazzy clothes are just the icing on the well-deserved cake. 🙂
