  • A Tribute to the Jeep Grand Wagoneer

    Tribute to the Jeep Grand WagoneerAn absolute legend of a high-end 4x4, a hugely influential and long-lasting progenitor of the modern-day sports-utility vehicle, and a smooth, spacious ride with an imposing grill and unmistakable faux-wood paneling -- the Jeep Grand Wagoneer may have ended production better than two decades ago, but it still boasts legions of loyal fans. Stylish yet rugged, it defined the luxury SUV market before it officially existed -- and hasn't ever been eclipsed for sheer character. Continue reading

  • LPGA on Nantucket?

    This is a guest post from Christina J.

    Gates, Golf Course, Light House and Fog

    With the mild temperatures, beautiful landscapes and historic New England charm that permeates Nantucket, it’s the perfect location for a professional golf tournament. While Nantucket hasn’t managed to secure a major yet, local groups continue their efforts to change that. Efforts to finalize a spot in the 2014 Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) tour fell through, but Miacomet Golf Course is hoping for a mulligan in 2015.

  • Golf is the closest game to the game we call life

    Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots — but you have to play the ball where it lies. - Bobby Jones, greatest amateur golfer and lawyer

    Bobby Jones was known not only for being an amateur golfer who regularly beat professionals but also for his Grand Slam, which was his victory in every major golf championship a single calendar year. To this day, the feat has never been repeated, although Tiger Woods came close when he won four consecutive golf tournaments over two years.

    Bobby went on to retire at the age of 28, and he co-founded the Masters Tournament as well as the Augusta National Golf Club. The Masters Tournament is held every year by the club, and Bobby Jones was one of the primary engines behind its success.

  • Gentlemen, meet your favorite new shorts

    Men's Seersucker Shorts Sale

    Seersucker shorts are a classic staple of the American man’s summer wardrobe. We grew up running (and sailing) around in seersucker and still wear it to this day. It’s breathable, cool, and perfect for warm weather.

    Although we love seersucker, we didn’t love the fit of most of the seersucker shorts available. Typically, they’re too baggy and boxy. Occasionally they’re way too short. We’ve spent the last few years perfecting the fit of our shorts are are proud to offer our Whaler Shorts: great fitting men’s shorts with attention to all the details. Order by 11:59pm EST on Tuesday April 8, 2014 and save $25 with coupon code FAVSHORTS.

    Details • Made in USA. These shorts were made in an American factory to ensure top quality. Plus, you’ll be proud to wear a American-made shorts. • 9” inseam. This length typically keeps the shorts just above your knees - exactly where they belong. • 100% cotton. Seersucker is often made from a poly/cotton blend, but that doesn’t work for us. We’ve made sure this fabric is 100% natural cotton to allow for maximum breathability and the softest feel. • Nylon zipper. More durable and less likely to break than metal zippers. • 2 side pockets.

We’ve chosen a lightweight, solid white 100% cotton lining for these shorts. • Two buttoned back pockets. Keep your wallet in place in the pocket of your choice. • Striped blue and white pattern. This is the most common seersucker pattern, and for good reason. It’s simple but fun, pairs well with any solid shirt, and still carries a bit of summer sophistication.
