Growing up in Hong Kong, I didn't get to see my Dad often because he'd be away on one of his many business trips. But during the rare chance that I did, I would vividly remember how put together he was in his pristine, beige polos and perfectly-pleated slacks. That fine balance between being casual and professional was enchanting. I wish I had a photo of my Dad in a similar outfit just to show a side-by-side comparison, but I am too lazy to power up my old scanner! So this will have to do for now: An ode to my Dad as a sartorial inspiration.
