    Cut is such an important part of fit, that I'd say color of denim translates more to "dad-wear" than cut.

    But that being said, if you're a dad, well then I'd say you've earned the right to go with dad-wear when necessary.

      I mean the other way. Fit more than color is what attributes dad jeans. Yes dads traditionally wear lighter wash but to me when I think dad jeans I think poor fitting, baggy, maybe carpenter or even extra pocket type jeans.

        ...but what if they're a carpenter?

        and baggy fellas need baggy jeans. i guess it's part of the whole package.

        i think we can all agree that anyone wearing crocs (especially with socks) needs to be dragged out back and worked over with a rubber hose.

            I sometimes wear Ralph Lauren stuff with <gasp> logos!
            I occasionally wear after shave.
            I regularly wear flip-flops in the summer.
            I kind of like hoodies and occasionally wear one.
            I HATE white sneakers, especially with dark jeans or pants.

            I regret nothing.

              Wait! What?! I should feel guilty about how much I love to wear vests??? I own half a dozen of them, get lots of pleasure from each, and never knew that was something to fess up to.

                Well my confession is that I am considering buying crocs... in camo

                  Technically I think the business or finance bro look is strictly limited to the Patagonia better sweater vest or other similar poly fleece vests. I have a couple of quilted/puffer vests with wind proof outer shells and they give off a much different vibe. Not that there's anything wrong with the better sweater type ones. I have the North Face better sweater equivalent hoodie and that thing is cozy AF in the winter. I spend a lot of time in it.

I guess that makes me a sartorial dilettante...
                    I am super guilty of this too. Avoid dad wear though.

                      OH man. When I'm at home it's comfy clothes all the way. Current attire (as I sit at the desktop computer at 930 at night) sweat pants, t-shirt, hoodie, and slippers. Then again, I did go out for a mountain bike ride after work, so I feel kind of justified in just taking it easy.

                        I have a couple pair of shrink-to-fit 501s that I bought at JCPenney in rigid about when my first daughter was born. She’s 14 now. I don’t play the “no wash” game with them - I just wear them til they’re dirty, then wash and dry. I mostly only wear them on weekends, so they’re just now starting to disintegrate - and yes, they're super pale blue, almost white in the thin spots. In my book, they are hardcore earned-it Dad Jeans.

                            I'm a dad as well. While I love being a dad, I avoid dad wear. Not dad jokes though. Those are required. Extra points when your kids roll their eyes instead of laugh at them.

                              Are you a dad whose old enough to remember the (potentially) greatest travesty ever perpetrated on jeans? Which was, sometime in the vicinity of the late 1980s-mid 1990s there were actually people buying pleated acid washed jeans. Yes, pleated jeans were a thing. I have Dappered sins to confess but thankfully my sins do not include wearing pleated jeans.

                                I'm not a dad but I remember those jeans very well, since I was in my late teens and early 20's while they were fashionable. You may think it would have been a style sin but, then, you might look back some day and say, "Remember when guys were wearing slacks that didn't even cover their ankles?"
