Roger Would Wear It

My dad, Roger Friedell, has an affinity for high-quality, low-priced (read “free”) clothing. One of Ben’s favorite stories was when my dad told him he was “trying to be more metrosexual,” immediately prior to brandishing a floor-length, pea-green trench-coat and safari hat. On our trip, we’ve often found ourselves calling out outfits Roger would wear. Tomorrow we are meeting my parents in Myanmar and I couldn’t be more excited, so we decided to share some of the outfits in honor of their arrival. It should be noted that my mom has impeccable taste in fashion so she was spared.

For those of you unfortunate souls who have never met Roger, I went through my phone to find a picture of him and came up with these:

  1. This is seriously the best. and Roger is quite possibly my favorite human. And I’m sure Kyra would point out that I’ve started a sentence (2 sentences now) with and.
