If you’re reading this, chances are you either:

A) Are a dad,

B) Have a dad, or

C) Know someone who is a dad.

And you know that, traditionally, dads have gotten a bad rap about their apparel. Frankly, we bear that cross because of a few bad apples–apples dressed in cut-off jorts, undersized, grease-stained shirts, and calf-length dress socks. So we offer you a mission this Father’s Day. We challenge you to clothe the fathers in your life with respectable apparel–apparel they can be proud of.

Now, if your pops enjoys shirtless guys and the overpowering smell of body spray, we’d suggest your local Hollister or Abercombie & Fitch. If he still respects the value of a comfortable T-shirt and prefers the smell of gasoline or tire fumes, we’d urge you to shop Summit Gifts, Clothing, and Memorabilia.

Yeah, you made the right choice.

Your search for cool dad’s day duds starts here, with the latest hot rod-themed apparel from GHH. We’ve highlighted a few of our favorite shirts and hats to get you going in the right direction.

Our love for cars goes back millions of years. It’s proven science–because this shirt says so.

Pinstripe Mechanic’s Shirt


A more formal alternative to a simple T-shirt. Yep, we’d call this formal wear.

Help your father embrace his wealth of experience with an Old Guys Rule tee.

This one’s got a cute mechanic girl riding a spark plug. The shirt doesn’t even need to be comfortable–but that’s just an added bonus.

Time to ditch that old snap-back hat for something a little cooler.

Retro is cool. That means your dad is cool–especially when paired with this retro T-shirt.
