Why Dads Are Legends At The Gents Place

Father’s Day is a holiday that is really important to us at The Gents Place. Often we can get lost in going through the motions of daily schedules and routines. We buy ties, cuff links, or cologne, send a card, have a meal, and yes, say “thank you.” And sure, that’s appreciated. But before those gifts, meals, and words of thanks, we should take a moment to reflect on the “why.” Why are we thankful for our Dads?

“Standing on the Shoulders of Giants”

Our co-owner, Emmitt Smith, recently sat down and shared that his father missed out on an opportunity to go to college and play football because he chose to stay home and take care of his ailing mom. “My Daddy is a Legend,” Emmitt shares.

When we think about our fathers and what they have sacrificed for us, it’s important to remember that while there is one specific day that we recognize these important men in our lives, we should never limit our mindfulness or thankfulness to only one day.
