Tough Dads, Caterpillars, and Butterflies

Hey, so I know it’s a long ways away, but Father’s Day is coming up on June 16 and it’s never too early to get ready to celebrate the male role models in our lives.

“With great power comes great responsibility…”
- Uncle Ben
¬†PETER WHY DIDN’T YOU LISTEN

 

Here’s one gift suggestion that’s pretty tough, cute, and family-oriented all at once… ready?

 

Matching CAT Apparel shirts.

One for dad, one for mum, and one or more for the kid(s). It shows that you’re all hardworking, tough, and united as individuals and as a whole family.

 

What I like about CAT Apparel shirts is their branding (when I see that logo, I think of the honest hard worker, the backbone of our industrial infrastructure)… and their tagless shirts (but seriously, why do any brands still put tags on their clothing?!).

 

Admiral Adama is pretty much his entire crew’s dad. He’s tough, loyal, and lovable.

 

PROTIP: If you’re ever looking for CAT Apparel products and you don’t want to wade through a bunch of sites that sell clothing for cats and kittens, just type “Caterpillar Apparel.” :3

 

Don’t forget to save the date! June 16, 2013.

You can find these shirts and other great Father’s Day gifts at BareBonesWorkWear.com.

It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere

The sun has officially set. You wipe off the sweat trickling down your forehead as you let out a big sigh. (Sigh) It’s the end of the day, and you are finally off the clock.

Driving home had never felt so good. You turn your blinker on right before you pull up your driveway, and as you park–you eye your rugged recliner out on the porch. Ahhhh–

IT’S FIVE O’CLOCK SOMEWHERE.

You give out a sly smile as you think of that ice cold six-pack of beer in your fridge waiting for you.

You walk in the house, “Honey, I’m home.”

“How was your day?”

“Long. I’m tired.”

“You wanna get out of those clothes and relax?”

“Nah, I’m actually comfortable, but lemme crack open a beer.”

THUD THUD THUD.

You walk outside with your ice cold beverage and crack it open– you lift up your very muddy Timberland PRO PowerWelt Waterproof Steel Toe right on the porch rail. Ahh, crickets are singing. The breeze is blowing. “Seems like it’s gonna be a chilly evening,” you say to yourself.

You roll down the sleeves of the new Carhartt Force Cotton Shirt your wife got you last week. As dirty as your day was, the softness of the cotton shirt is comforting. You down the whole can of beer. You loosen up the buttons of your Berne Duck Bib Overalls as you let out yet another sigh.

(Sigh)

“WHAT A DAY, EH?”

“Daddy! Daddy!”

Your youngest one is asking you to come in for dinner. “Well… Here’s job number two,” you say to yourself as you get up, pick up your little girl, and carry her into the house.

No matter where you are, no matter what it’s for, don’t matter how big a crack is, Barebones Workwear has got you covered… even your job as a dad.
