I’m guessing that years from now guys will still be talking about the Seattle Team’s 2019 Sunday shirt. Known as “Toucan Sam,” the shirt is one of roughly a dozen or so sold by a startup apparel company called Waggle Golf.
I quite liked the Toucan. Not everyone else did — and they let me know it.
I didn’t think it was even in the running for worst shirt of the week — the World Team’s gray, “morse code” rag was my easy winner in that category.
But it did get me to thinking: could I have done worse?
And after a little bit of research into what’s out there in the golf shirt world these days, I reached a clear conclusion.
Yes I could have.
There are any of these offerings from Loudmouth (and there were plenty more I could have added here):
Or any of these from Iliac:
Or these from Bad Birdie:
Or these from William Murray:
So the next time a Seattle Team member complains about his Toucan shirt, he’d do well to remember — it could have had feathers on it.
