Anything with a Todd Snyder label on it is absolutely 100% Hip Daddy Style Approved. We love the apparel and is perfect for every Hip Daddy #plainandsimple. And even better, we had the pleasure of speaking with Todd about fatherhood, raising girls, and most importantly, being nice! Please enjoy…
Tell us about your kids. What’s it like being a Dad?
Being a Dad is great. My two girls are 12 and 14 and everyday keeps getting better. I really enjoy watching them grow up. They are getting into fashion, so it’s fun to see what trends they respond to.
Talk to us about your parenting style.
I am the fun dad. Their mother, Ana, has the toughest job. She’s much more disciplined with them than I am. I’m very lucky.
What’s the one thing you cannot live without as a Dad?
Vacations with them. They grow so fast. It’s the only way to spend quality time with them and the only time they actually talk to me.
We are huge fans of your clothing line. What’s next for Todd Snyder NYC? Any interesting cool collabs on the horizon?
I have an Eames chair coming out in Japan for next fall. It’s the Padded Management chair and it’s very stealth looking…black powder coated with a gray flannel cushion.
Any particular items/brands you love for your children? Todd Snyder for Kids sounds nice…
Shoes are critcal for my girls. Right now they both want Stan Smiths.
What’s your typical weekend attire?
Weekends are casual cool. I usually wear a desert boot and jeans.
We love a Hip Daddy with some Midwestern roots and values. Tell us more.
My father always said, “Work hard, innovate and most of all, be nice.” That’s the same message I try to convey to my girls.
