Daddy-os: Where the coolest get their coolness

Posted by Dee-Ann On October - 14 - 20105,277 views

Daddy-O’s was established in 1996 by a husband and wife who were frustrated with the lack of affordable,  good quailty vintage clothing. After discovering that a few companies were making “new” old style retro clothing, their vision came clear. They knew that there had to be others sharing their frustration and decided that a presence on the web would be a perfect solution.
I am talking to Bob Berry of Daddy-O’s clothing.

Do you have a passion for the vintage fashion style, or also for rock and roll music and other vintage related things?
We have always had a passion for all things vintage and have always been big fans of the stylings of the 40’s and 50’s when it comes to cars, furniture, music and especially clothing.

Are there celebrities buying at your shop?
Yes, we have provided clothing for a great deal of celebrities.  A few have been Brian Setzer, Guy Fieri, Gilles Marini, Joe Mantegna, Kristin Chenoweth, Sarah Silverman, Margaret Cho, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Kelly Osbourne and many others.  We have provided clothing for movies and TV shows like “My One And Only”, “Smallville”, “The Middle”, “The View” and many others.

Did the show Two and a Half men, with Charlie Sheen, contribute to your sales of bowling shirts/ Did the bowling shirts become more popular because of that show? 
Yes, the “bowling shirt” style has definitely become more popular with the “regular guy” since Charlie Sheen started wearing the style on the show.  Sheen currently has his own line of shirts being produced by Da Vinci Clothing and they are definitely some of our most popular shirts. 

What’s your favorite brand, and why? 
We carry many differnet brands and we can’t really pick a favorite.

Do you think vintage fashion is passive? I mean… does it stay the same generally, with here and there some small change of details? Or do you think it’s an evolving thing, that it will adjust itself to the current time?
In the almost 15 years that we have been in business we have not seen a great deal of change in the items that we carry.  It seems like the customers change though.  You will always have new people getting turned onto the vintage style.  Sometimes it just takes a Charlie Sheen or another celebrity to be seen wearing something and now it is all popular and fresh again.
