Nautical home decor has been around since the beginning of the seafaring world. However, as with all things, it has changed and evolved over the years from being found exclusively in homes of sea captains and in coastal homes to be found in any city around the world. But with each trend and change, the true nautical style remains timeless.
For our next post in our 'Meet the Maker' series we asked Bill Reitz a few questions to get to know the man behind our newest tie offering, Twisted Fin Ties. Twisted Fin uses only the finest materials to create premium quality printed twill silk ties with a double wool blend liner. All their designs are created by Bill himself, from the drawing of the golfer to the sailboat to the signature Twisted Fin dolphin. You may be surprised that this tie-wearing guy also loves his toes in the sand...but who doesn't?

It's hard to believe that June is nearly upon us. Of course, that means Father's Day is just around the corner, falling on Sunday June 15 this year. This is a special Father's Day for me, since it's the first since my son was born. I am certainly proud of my little guy and happy to be "honored", but the past 9 months have really given me a new appreciation for my own dad.
Although I've just gotten started, I already know it's not an easy job. One of the biggest challenges I've found is is managing time effectively. Similar to me, my dad ran his own business, which provided some flexibility but also meant he was never done with work. Yet he still somehow always found time to run his construction business, take our family on vacation, ski in New Hampshire nearly every other winter weekend, play catch with us in the driveway, coach soccer and baseball teams, run the youth soccer program, Nantucket Little League, and Babe Ruth League, put together new toys and inevitably fix those same toys, play tennis and take us to the beach on summer weekends, and so much more. When I think about all my dad did - and still does - for me, it makes me think he must have been crazy to take so much on. However, it also inspires me to want to do everything I can for my own son.
Hopefully, there's a father in your life that's does everything he can to be a great dad. It may be your own father, your grandfather, or husband. We've put together a Father Day Gift Guide with some ideas of what to get him to show your appreciation. Whatever you choose, be sure to spend some time together, call him, or write a note.

The Best Seersucker Shorts?
Our seersucker shorts are consistently among our most popular items and we believe we make the best seersucker shorts around. This is testament both to the timeless, classic style of seersucker as a summer style, as well as the quality of our product.
We take everything into account when making our shorts, starting with 100% cotton seersucker fabric. Many seersucker fabrics are a cotton/poly blend, which makes them less breathable - one of seersucker's best qualities. No matter the color or print, we always make sure to use 100% cotton seersucker in our shorts.
