“Baseball caps are officially mom jeans 2.0. And the item that’s typically associated with little-league games and family vacations is actually becoming a must-have accessory. In place of beanies, snapbacks, and even berets, the “dad” hat is taking center stage among celebrities and fashion folks, alike, meaning one very important thing: You’ll officially never have to worry about having a bad hair day again. Yet another staple being revived thanks to normcore, these typically solid-colored, cotton pieces (and normally embroidered with some type of logo or pop-culture reference) are become a staple in a whole new way. And the best part about that? You probably already own one. So, grab your favorite pair of worn-in mom jeans, a crew-neck sweatshirt, and some white sneakers — and just look to Drake, Kendall Jenner, or even North West for all the styling inspiration you may need.” – Text source:

And, indeed, it seems as though that dream is destined to come to pass — because one day, under sudden and enigmatic circumstances, he finds himself in possession of “great expectations.” –
