This week for the These Dads Are Doing It Right Series I am talking about dads who are leaving their mark in the fashion world. You might not see these dads walking the runway during fashion week, but these styles are legit. Not only do these guys make some fantastic merchandise, but they empower dads to embrace fatherhood! Support these guys by picking up some of their gear and show off your dad pride! Let’s take a look at these fashionable dads.
Living That PopLyfe – Sean Singleton
I have met Sean online and interviewed him for one of my podcasts. Later, I got to meet him in person at the Dad 2.0 Summit. He is a great guy and wonderful dad. He was kind enough to send me a shirt. When I would rock that shirt with a pair if Air Jordans I would get compliments on it all the time. His designs are fantastic. For Sean the PopLyfe looks to help responsible and proud fathers represent their Family Life and their Story of Fatherhood. The PopLyfe shop was created to recognize dads and their commitment to being proud, involved fathers. It is designed for dads who want to show their pride on what matters most. His aim is to share the message that being a father is important and encourage dads to show the world that they don’t take the responsibility lightly. Check out his clothing line at poplyfe.com.

Beleaf In Your Style – Glen Henry
Glen has a passion for fatherhood. He really cares about sharing his fatherhood journey. He created a clothing line that supports great dads everywhere. On one of his shirts he says, “Family is both the root where we begin and the seed we plant for the future. Family is tremendously powerful.Whether we know it or not, when we start families, we create the foundation for someone else’s entire existence. This is why it is so significant to have awareness of the value of family, because what we do as parents plays into who our children become. This means we’ve got to learn how to love deeper and more unconditionally, and when we fail, apologize more genuinely because our children learn from us.” That is very powerful.
