Impending Fatherhood - Sartorial Emergency Kit - Page 3

post #31 of 42
In my experience for the first 6-12 months you'll be so shattered through sleepless nights and having to bow to your little Emperor's every whim that you won't notice if you have your shoes on the wrong feet.

Wet wipes, hand sanitiser and just not caring quite so much are probably your best options.

Try and wear tops the same colour as re-gurgitated milk is a good bet for the first 6 months or so.

Best of luck with it, fatherhood is the hardest, most rewarding and most enjoyable thing you'll ever do.

Your clothes, if this was a literal what.

Any sage advice from Prof. Vox?

Good God, man! Where is the butler?! Where are the charwomen?! And the wet nurses! Where are the nannies?! What happened to... the help?

Well his crappy clothing involved a Cucinelli sweater, so I wouldn't expect much different than he normally wears...

Come on, the first six months after joining Style Forvm aren't quite that bad.

For those of us that rock the bespoke, you're quite right.

For those of us that don't, it's a rougher road.

As indicated by a raft of gratuitous daddy pics on the site, some of you have gone through this already. Since both my wife and I work, it will be up to me, typically, to deal with the daycare/school issues (both will be near my office). So here's the question: What do I stock in my office to deal with the inevitable baby-related clothing mishap?
Here's my current list:
1) White shirt.
2) Appropriate undershirt.
3) A couple of generic ties. Possibly knit.
4) Pair of grey slacks.
5) Tide stick (or something)
Any other suggestions? or is this pretty complete?

You forgot the towel and don't wear black or navy while burping after their feeding.
