You guys asked for Thursday Night Mowing League shirts to show your pride in the community that we’ve built around here. You wanted the shirt to reflect the concept of TNML. You wanted the shirt to speak to the movement that’s built on regular guys being regular guys out there navigating the land with your Toros and Cub Cadets.
As the commissioner, I ruled that the shirt had to reflect a common theme that had developed over the last three weeks and that was the images of dad mowing shoes being left on top of mowers like baseball bats in racks. Like hockey sticks lining a wall. Like basketballs on a shootaround rack. Like BBQ utensils resting on plates after going to war with slabs of ribs.
The designer came back with a pair of Chuck’s high-tops on the mower. It was an instant ‘no.’ Either we put dad shoes on top of that mower, or the shirt isn’t being sold. Today the designer came back with dad cleats. We have a shirt that’s going to reflect the movement from coast to coast.
It’s a tri-blend shirt, soon-to-be the most comfortable shirt in your dresser. Keep in mind these will fit you a little more snug than a 100% cotton shirt. If you’re an XL, don’t be afraid to go to a double if you’re used to full breathing room. If you’re looking to show off the dad pipes, you might want to drop down to a medium.
Let’s wear them with pride. Let’s buy an extra one for our fathers who taught us this passion we all share.
