CUTTER & BUCK
There is one Father’s Day that stands out in the painful memories book. I’d saved up almost all my after-school grocery store shelf stocking pay to buy my Dad a golf shirt. When he opened it up, he said: “Ah, you shouldn’t have.” Taking it to be his usual humble and ‘I don’t deserve this’ approach to life, I said: “No I wanted to. You’re the best.” It was sometime later, the golf season having been long buried under feet of snow, that I asked my mother about the shirt and if he had ever worn it. “That black and orange thing?” she asked, rhetorically. “Gosh no! He hated it, gave it to a friend.” So, that’s what he meant by: “You shouldn’t have.” This Father’s Day, if you want to dodge that type of response, check out the line from Cutter & Buck. You can’t go wrong as C&B have color combos, fabrics, and designs for every style of Dad. At first glance you’ll see that he’ll look great on and off the course. C&B’S designs and fabrics more than meet the demands of today’s golfers. For instance, the $50 Advantage Polo has Drytec moisture wicking and has 35 UPF sun protection. The three per cent Spandex makes it comfortable. The $47 Genre Polo also has Drytec with side panels and vents, nice collar and three buttons, and comes in 28 colors! The $61 Trevor Stripe Polo collar matches the stripes, and the 100 % polyester is designed for comfort. Check out all the choices for Dad at www.cutterbuck.com. Too bad C&B wasn’t around back in the day.
