Shug Jordan in a Houndstooth Hat

A bunch of Auburn fans (understandably) got their dander up this week upon news that Brooks Brothers’ recently released Auburn collection (seemingly) included a houndstooth Auburn tie.

Shug Jordan probably wouldn’t have had a problem with it.

From the 1971 Glomerata:

Now, like the Brooks Brothers tie, this might not be houndstooth. Who can say? No one seems to know what houndstooth actually looks like, not even Bear Bryant. Point is, Shug never gave evil exclusive rights on what the Lord intended for good. Or at least he didn’t in this case. And as someone with a daughter whose favorite color is (temporarily) red, I feel that.

UPDATED: Shug’s daughter confirms father’s affinity for houndstooth.
