My Father's Style

Sunday, June 16, 2013


Craig Satterlee, Father, Dad, style, collage, never fully dressed, without a style,

Images all from Craig Satterlee's Pinterest boards; original sources can be found there.  Images (clockwise, starting at top right): Superman comic | Tintin | The Lone Ranger | Retro Mickey Mouse | Art Nouveau exhibit poster | Norman Rockwell print | Newspaper story about the World Series | Beatles' Sgt. Pepper album cover | Lion Statue from Chatworth | Fox Terrier | 1910s photograph 


In honor of Father's day, I thought I'd talked about my dad and style. I've often mentioned that my dad has been a style inspiration to me. Not so much in the dress-how-he-dresses aspect. Whether it is from years behind a camera or just an inate asthetic, he has always steered me towards a classic, gamine style with women's fashion. But his influence on my sense of style extends far beyond that. From an appreciation of art (and photography as fine art), of history, and how the two connect, to a love of baseball and fox terriers, he's influenced me. It is thanks to him I love comics, and adventure stories as well as I like Jane Austen and Emily Dickenson. His love of classic movies sparked my own deep interests and- well, his interests are wide and varied, but really, why don't you go see for yourself? Follow him on Pinterest! Or check out his photography portfolio and maybe buy a coffee tablebook of some of his images?

Has your father influenced your sense of style too?

    1. Well, I'm biased, but certainly think so!

  3. Oh my! I think your dad's style is... my style??? We certainly like a lot of the same movies! This is a really great moodboard. I've always loved that little image of Tintin running in the search light.

    My dad's a photographer too, and he always encouraged me towards photography. He likes furniture with a dark varnish and Arthur Rackham paintings - two things he passed on to me! :-)

    1. Haha- now that you mention it, I can see a lot of similarities in both of your wide and varying tastes.

      That is neat that your dad is a photographer too!

  4. Your dad seems to have excellent style. My stepdad has wonderful style when he wants to and he taught me about picking quality over quantity.

    1. Quality over a Quantity is an important lesson (one I'm still trying to remember!)

  5. This is quite sweet. That looks like a Jack Russell Terrier pictured (looks like my Jack in fact!), though I do know that they were cross-bred specifically to produce what we know is the Jack Russell of today. Terriers are definitely my favorite....My father didn't directly influence my sense of style, however I do love the style from the period of his youth, the 70's. =) -Jessica L

    1. It is actually the WIre-Haired Fox Terrier who won the big AKC competitions last year. We breed Fox Terriers. And yes, terriers are the best! <3! What is your Jack Russell named?
