Father's Day is the time when we all think about how much our dads mean to us. The CINCH rodeo athletes are no different. We reached out to many of them to get their favorite Father's Day memories.
World Champion tie-down roper Shane Hanchey’s favorite Father’s Day memory was how accepting his father was. Hanchey explained that his father “never forced me to do anything. He wanted me to be happy whatever I did and work hard at it, whether it was playing baseball or rodeoing. I’m thankful for him driving me around to rodeos for years.”
Zeke Thurston, World Champion saddle bronc rider, has a favorite Father’s Day memory from when he was just a small child. “Probably my favorite memory would be when I was little the whole family would be at the Innisfail Daines Ranch Rodeo for Father’s Day because my Dad would be working the rodeo and he’d put me and my brothers in the sheep riding,” Thurston said. “Then after, we’d all have a big feast and enjoy the day.”
“Dad and I have a lot of great memories together as we are very close,” Kaleb Driggers said. The six-time NFR qualifier in team roping credits his father for helping him learn the ins and outs of roping.
“He knows my roping better than I do, I believe. Some of our best memories are out in the roping pen just roping together,” Driggers said. He remembers times when he was a child and he would accompany his father to Oklahoma City for the USTRC finals. Since they were from Georgia, a trip to the finals “was a big time of the year for us to go and rope on a stage that big. We always seemed to pay for our trip somehow at the small ropings around the city.” But one year, he said, the duo won $50,000. “That was a special time for us. I won’t ever forget getting to rope with him all those nights just him and me. We don’t get to as much as we used to with me being gone all the time but I still do when I have the chance. It’s fun to just relax and enjoy family time at the arena with my family as that’s where it all began for me.”
Cort Scheer is a five-time NFR qualifier as a saddle bronc rider, but once upon a time, he had to learn everything about the sport—including how to get on a bronc. Like everything else in his life, his father was there for him. It’s no surprise then that Scheer’s favorite Father’s Day memory is just that—when his father taught him one of the essential building blocks needed for Scheer to excel at his sport.
As a dedicated CINCH wearer, you used our recent blog post, Refresh Your Western Wardrobe with New Denim Lineup, to stock up on the latest denim styles, right? Now, just in time for Father’s Day, we’re rounding out the rest of your favorite guy's wardrobe with shirts, cologne and accessories.
An ideal gift for your husband is an essential piece of his wardrobe—his boxer briefs. Bring some personality to his underwear drawer with this pair of CINCH green cactus-print boxer briefs. The tag-free design has been “cowboy tested” in and out of the saddle for the ultimate in comfort and performance. Boasting no-ride leg seams, each pair features an anti-microbial treatment and is made of lightweight, four-way stretch, moisture wicking fabric.
CINCH has plenty of shirts tailor-made for a Father’s Day celebration dinner, such as the men’s white and blue striped oxford western button-down shirt. Featuring a fuller body that allows a full range of motion, this traditional oxford weave is a stylish addition to any man’s wardrobe. For a short-sleeve version, you can’t go wrong with the CINCH turquoise, navy and white small-scale plaid shirt. The plaid weave features a timeless color scheme plus a fuller cut that allows a full range of motion. With both shirts, the design, which includes longer tails and sleeves, allows the shirt to stay tucked in.
For a more casual look that Dad can show off on the golf course, choose a CINCH polo shirt. An ArenaFlex shirt will keep him dry and comfortable, all the way to the eighteenth hole. The gray polo shirt features a subtle embossed print in a poly-spandex blend. The heathered light blue polo shirt is an option if you prefer a lighter-colored shirt.
Pair any of the above shirts with a classic, slim-fitting jean like the Silver Label in dark stonewash. The classic style will take Dad from the arena to the ball field to a night on the town. Touches such as whiskers and tacking elevate the traditional jean to a modern favorite.
If you’re looking for a gift that doesn’t involve colors or sizes, look no further than CINCH’s line of cologne. For the adventurous man, choose CINCH Dually Cologne’s distinctive blend of basil, sandalwood and oakmoss. The warm, masculine scent of CINCH Classic Cologne with notes of musk, sandalwood, leather and sage is ideal for traditional men, while fashion-forward men will love CINCH Sport Cologne’s fresh and modern blend of grapefruit, ginger and nutmeg.
