Now this is an amazing story of a father and his son, amazing enough to actually define the pure and immaterial relation between a father and his child. Nils Pickert’s 5-year-old son likes to wear dresses and skirts. So in a show of solidarity with the dressing sense of his child Pickert also started wearing them!

Back when he lived in West Berlin, the dressing style was definitely a conversation starter, but not much more than that. Now however, Pickert and his son live in a very traditional South German village.
While talking to a magazine Pickert said: "I didn't want to talk my son into not wearing dresses and skirts." He added, "He [my son] didn't make friends in doing that in Berlin already and after a lot of contemplation I had only one option left: To broaden my shoulders for my little buddy and dress in a skirt myself."
At first, Pickert’s son was reluctant to wear such dresses in public, fearing that he would become a laughing stock at his school. But all that changed one day when on a ‘skirt and dress day’ he and his dad made a resident of the town stare so hard she slammed into the street light.
You want definition of a cool dad? Nils Pickert and his fatherly love say it all.
