The Coach’s Shirt by Pennington & Bailes

On November 13, 2010, in Classics, Mens, Shirts, by Ryan & Ben

At Bows & Boats, Saturdays in the Fall mean it is time for college football. While jeans and tee shirts are fine gameday apparel for a number of folks across the country, here on the East Coast we tend to do things a little different.  Gamedays are a time to put on your Saturday best, mix a few drinks, cook a few burgers, and enjoy an afternoon with friends cheering on your Alma Mater.  At an East Coast football game, khakis, polos, button downs, ties, and even the occasional blazer are never out of place.  One of our favorite gameday choices is the Coach’s Shirt by Pennington & Bailes.

Pennington & Bailes was founded by two friends, Mel Pennington and Tygh Bailes, who saw a need for “tried and true preppy” clothes with a collegiate focus.  With products featuring the logos of over 40 schools, and ranging from embroidered pants to team inspired polos Pennington & Bailes has seen great growth since they made their first sale in 2006.  In our opinion, the most versatile piece in their collection is the Coach’s Shirt ($85).  Featuring a simple gingham print, and colors inspired by 10 different schools, the Coach’s Shirt is a great way to show your school spirit in classic preppy style.
