Garrett Leight is the Best Dad on Earth

Leandra Medine | June 19, 2015

Missed Monday’s closet featuring Veronika Heilbrunner? Catch it here.

We have been holding on to this gem of a Closet for over a month, waiting for the magical weekend that is Father’s Day prep to release sunglass-aficionado Garrett Leight‘s week of divine wears. And how could we not be excited, really, considering the bomb-ass baby he was seen accessorizing with on three of his eight days as a Man Repeller-contracted supermodel? If ever there was a way to say “dad’s rule,” that kid’s smile is it. So I might not know much about men’s fashion, but babies — babies I know.

Per the clothes, you’ve got to give it to the Oliver Peoples veteran for wearing a Laker jersey two days counting in spite of L.A.’s 100-degree heat, no? And check out the slides! Also! Also! Leopard print harem pants? Abie, if you’re listening, I’m sorry but I do believe you’ve been stylistically eclipsed, which reminds me, community members: on a scale from 1 to 10 how important is it that I make Abie do a closet? LMK. Happy Father’s Weekend!

Sunday

Traveling day requires my go to jeans from RTH Shop, basic white Hanes Tee, Unis Varsity Jacket, Turnbull & Asser scarf, and J’s on my feet.

Monday

So happy to be home after being on the road. Wearing a Nom De Guerre Jacket, Chapter pants and Supreme Wallabee’s. Garrett Leight Kinney glasses. Ila’s in vintage jacket, OshKosh overalls, and Nike’s.

Tuesday

Bad mood because Ila threw up on my first two outfits, so I was over it and put on Supreme sweatpants, Hane’s tee, Kings hat, and my J’s.

Wednesday

Uniform day. Wearing RTH Shop Jeans, Vans, a vintage shirt from somewhere in Harajuku and GLCO Brooks Sunglasses.

Thursday

I’m wearing Chapter shorts, a vintage button up, Vans, a Stetson hat and GLCO Brooks Sunglasses.

Friday

Headed to the desert with the boys to watch the Dodgers. Gotta rock the Magic Johnson jersey to rep LA without being exactly like every other Dodgers fan there. Obviously paired with the uniform: RTH jeans, Vans shoes. Baby Ila’s in in pajamas, and my made in USA Boswell glasses with purple mirror lenses.

Saturday

100 degrees in L.A. Jersey and my Japan Only Birkenstocks.

Sunday

Wearing vintage Levi’s from RTH Shop, Acne Studios button up, Mark McNairy shoes, and GLCO Wilson M glasses. Ila is in her PJs and a ridiculously cute hoodie with ears.
