There's really something about celebrating Dads in the South -- perhaps it's the backyard cookout with lemonade and cold beer; or a calm, cool and collected family walk in the park; or a family meal on the patio with shareable plates and pie. Southerners seem to relish in those moments and gatherings, and I especially find this to be the case on Father's Day.
Father's Day falls on June 18; in case you got nervous about timing, you have plenty of time to plan and celebrate Dad the proper way.
I recently met the founder of Southern Creed, a now Memphis-based small business inspired by life in the South. Hand-designed and sewn fabrics--from cotton and catfish to okra--currently apply to traditional bow ties, neck ties, pocket squares, and dog leashes.
I fell in love with the bacon print, especially, which poses as automatic inspiration for Father's Day brunch. While the print will not work for my rabbi father, who keeps kosher, I figured I would give one away in hopes that it lands in the hands of a well-deserving, hard-working Dad!!
