Great Dads rule. It’s Father’s Day, a perfect opportunity to raid the VelvetMen style file and pick out some handsome fathers who seem to easily combine fatherhood with fashionable flair. Sartorial greatness and admirable parenting: what a glorious combination.

The nominees are:

1. Serge Gainsbourg: a Gallic music god.

2. Brad Pitt: celebrity dad extradordinaire.

3. Barack Obama: POTUS and a super dad = one busy man.

4. JFK: see above. 

5. John Coltrane: american jazz saxophonist with razor sharp style.

6. Jude Law: father to Rafferty, Iris and Rudy. Possibly the loveliest children’s names ever.

7. Johnny Depp: the coolest Dad on the planet. He’s Captain Jack for goodness sakes!

Hooray for fabulous fathers!

Jane Birkin is the quintessential style icon of the seventies and a Velvet It Girl. Birkin perfectly blended quirky English eccentricity and laid-back Parisian glamor. How could we not love a girl so gorgeous she even made a wicker basket look good?
