Classy Tailgating Pants: Now They've Thought Of Everything


When I think "tailgating pants," I picture a pair of lose fitting stretch pants with your team's colors circling the pant legs in a tight zebra-like formation. They were already invented and they are called Zubaz (do yourself a favor and click on that link). Well the gentlemen at Pennington & Bailes weren't satisfied with the Zubaz monopoly and wanted to improve on the idea of a tailgating pant, so they came up with the idea of a more classy trouser selection for gameday. They wanted some britches that signify both your affinity for your team as well as your sophistication. Sure you're a a diehard but you also enjoy a nice Brandy Alexander post-game at the Alumni Club. The slacks at Pennington & Bailes get the message across loud and clear. Sure they may be a little on the pricey side ($135 a pop) and yeah they don't represent that many teams at present (about 2 dozen mostly southern schools) but their statement is unmistakeable and their high style is undeniable. If you are an alum of one of these schools and are planning on going to a game, I'm not sure how you can afford not to buy these pants. They make a greater statement about your fandom than any cleverly written sign or license plate acronym. Everyone will know immediately about you and your feelings about your team. Though in the case of the Ole Miss pants, the statement may explain a little too much:

Nice post old boy! My uncle will be rather amused to see that old photo of him in the sporting pair of zubas. He was a rare breed of tailgater. The mullett really finished off the look. "Business in the front, party in the back"

Thanks for noticing our line, be sure to drop me an email and we'll send you some company schwag.
Best,
