The BroBasket

Women get flowers and smelly stuff as gifts.  What do men get? Ties? Yuck. Now men can get a gift which they would like as much as women like smelly stuff and flower gifts, the BroBasket.  BroBasket you ask?  Yes.  I just got my first one.  It went something like this.

The mystery box above was on my doorstep and had the quote, “a special gift for you.”  I thought to myself, “oh goodie!”

The fun stuff inside the mystery box was a very cool combination of “bro” friendly items like wine, whiskey rocks, golf balls, golf accessories, and a reusable basket to put other bro stuff in.

The wine came at a perfect time.  I cracked it open right away while putting together the inventory of my take in my first BroBasket.

My basket is “The Mini Golfer” basket.  What’s cool about BroBaskets is they can be customized to fit the the bro’s personality. I’m a wine guy. My basket featured a nice California cab, which I’m enjoying right at this moment (it is 7:58PM).  One can configure the spirit portion of the basket by picking from one of five wines, or a selection of brandy, gin, liqueurs, mixed drink packages, rum, scotch, tequila, vodka or whiskey. This cab is great. Cheers.

Other items can be added, pardon me, “configured,” to the basket such as glasses, accessories, and snacks.

Conclusion

BroBasket makes many different themed men’s gifts from the golf one I’ve featured here to others including spirits, corporate themes, holidays, and every other imaginable reason one might wish to give a man a gift.

Stop giving ties or gloves to your man and give him a gift he really wants and will most definitely use, one from BroBasket.


“Skullicious” Tattoo Golf Lucky 13 ProCool Golf Shorts Review

“What are you doing in there?” the lovely bride inquired. “Counting the skulls on my new shorts,” I replied. 

Hats off to Tattoo Golf for shaking up the golf apparel world and making it more fun and less stuffy.  Love the rock-&-roll attitude and of course, based on the HOG logo, I love skulls.

Lucky 13 ProCool Golf Shorts

Speaking of skulls, I’ve been sporting Tattoo Golf’s “skullicious” Lucky 13 ProCool Golf Shorts.  I counted them up, and there are about 100 skulls on the outside these shorts, right up my alley.  If you count the inner waistband, there are closer to 200 skulls.

Specs, Style, Performance

Tattoo Golf could rest on its laurels and be satisfied with making the golf shorts with the most skulls on them, but that’s not how they roll.  TG isn’t just a gimmick brand.  These are real “pro” level shorts.  The 100% polyester ProCool fabric is super-light and comfortable and provides moisture wicking to help keep the wearer cool and dry, whether on the golf course or at at Mastodon concert.  The style is 100% Tattoo Golf.  100% cool.

The shorts perform brilliantly for me on the golf course, adapting and stretching with every granny over the top dual chicken wing part of my seizure-like unfolding lawn chair golf swing. And trust me, that’s not easy to do.

Caring for these shorts is as easy Freddie Couples’ golf swing.  The polyester doesn’t shrink and doesn’t wrinkle.  Wear them right out of the dryer, which you can use freely.

Final Thoughts

As Tattoo Golf says, these shorts are lightweight and heavy in style.  I like my style and my rock and roll heavy.

aahSoles Green Coral Flip Flops

Finally the temperatures are rising to the point where after a round of golf I have no desire to replace my golf shoes with shoes and socks. Flip flop season is upon us, with the occasional northern Utah decoy spring snow storm. I’ve been happily wearing my Green Coral flip flops by aahSoles, shown below.

Funny name, yes. Funny look, yes. Fun marketing for sure and that’s all I thought aahSoles was about until I wore them. The footbed of these flip flops is tremendous. The material pattern/texture gives my feet an amazing massage with every footstep. I’m trying to figure out how to wear these to work.


The texture, along with perfectly designed straps, making the act of walking easier than any flip flop or sandal I’ve ever worn. No slippage and no irritation of the toes.

Conclusion

I had some Vans flip flops which were my gamers, but now they’re in the backup bag.  The gamers are now ahhSoles.  Sounds dorky, but I can’t wait to wear them again.  This could be the best $30 investment ever.

Father’s Day is coming up. These would make a great golf or non-golf related Father’s Day gift idea and very reasonably priced too.

I’m going to be sporting some proper threads for my apparel scripting today (if you don’t know what apparel scripting is, use the search function here). The latest in my golf apparel review queue is the Devereux Cameron Golf Polo.

The photo doesn’t really do it justice. The colors and look are much better in person. Maybe I’ll post a selfie later today. That’s what the young kids do these days.

I’ll be putting this golf polo to the test and posting a full review soon, so stay tuned.

Summer Flip Flop Scripting: aahSoles

I dislike wearing shoes and socks when it’s hot here in the desert. My shoe-less, sock-less après golf footwear scripting looks to be solid for this summer, thanks to ahhSoles. “aahSoles?” I see what you did there, LOL.

It’s a little too cold at the moment to think about flip flops. The big snow we got over the weekend has melted though, and I hope to be golfing later this week. Soon here in northern Utah it will be hot, and I normally like to air out the feet after walking 18 holes.

Stay tuned for my aahSoles review soon.
