  • 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

    • 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. Angled just right to give your arm a natural position when using, but not angled enough to allow items to fall out easily.

  • Joe Dimaggio: My first interview

    English: New York Yankees slugger during the a...

    This is a guest post from writer Martin Z.

    “Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio?
    A nation turns its lonely eyes to you (Woo, woo, woo)
    What's that you say, Mrs. Robinson
    Joltin' Joe has left and gone away
    (Hey, hey, hey...hey, hey, hey)”

    Simon & Garfunkel
    1968 song “Mrs. Robinson”

    Singer-songwriter Paul Simon wrote the stanza in "Mrs. Robinson" as a tribute to Joe DiMaggio’s quiet heroism and unpretentious nature. Simon admired DiMaggio. So did I.

    Like Simon, I was raised in the New York City area. In the 1970s, when I was a kid, DiMaggio was simultaneously a ubiquitous presence and the mysterious icon who was worshipped by baseball fans.
