I won’t make you wait any longer lest you explode. Here’s the Father’s Day outfit the Cool Bros picked out for me at JCPenney!


As you can see, they combined several approaches to ‘cool’ in this ensemble. Starting from the ground up:

  • The sandals keep my toes cool, freeing them from the heat-trapping confines of closed-toe shoes.
  • The khaki shorts provide a populist cool in that everyone’s wearing them.
  • The Star Wars shirt plays on the new paradigm that geek culture is cool. (And of course, is there any cooler spacecraft than the one that made the Kessel Run in less than TWELVE parsecs?)
  • The newsboy hat tops it off with some old school cool. I’ve long looked for a personal hat style. Can this work?

So now you can enjoy your Father’s Day in peace and harmony. And don’t forget to enter to win a $50 JCP gift card for yourself!

Thanks again to JCPenney for the fun project and new duds!

This unforgettable moment in internet history is brought to you by JCPenney!

With Father’s Day coming up, I wondered what the Cool Bros had in store for me. Given their limited budget (Cool Newbie celebrates his current horde of pennies in an old yogurt carton), I was expecting some beautiful handcrafted goods.

However, JCPenney reached out to us with a fun Father’s Day project, so in addition to some thoughtful crayon artwork, I’m getting me a fancy new outfit! And the Cool Bros are going to choose it! This should be interesting!

There was so much to choose from, we stayed past closing time so the Bros could make their perfect pick. Thanks to the fine folks at the Hendersonville, NC store for working with us!

Here’s part one of our Father’s Day shopping trip at JCP: The Hunt. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see the various combos my two budding stylists put together!
