Just in time for Father’s Day, June’s Merrick Style features the breezy island styles of Tommy Bahama. Drawing its inspiration from the tropical Caribbean, Tommy Bahama’s affordable designs are all about light fabrics, island colors, and sportswear that is both functional and elegant. They also carry accessories that range from sunglasses and watches to shoes and hats.
Our models for this Father’s Day collection are the father and son team of Rodney and Bradley Barreto. Rodney is a longtime political consultant who has chaired the Super Bowl Host Committee three times – including the present iteration for the 2020 Super Bowl – and serves on numerous boards, including as Chairman of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, member of the Florida Council of 100, member of the Miami-Dade County School’s Business Advisory Council and member of the Baptist Hospital Foundation.
Bradley, meanwhile, is a principal – along with his father – of Coral Gables Title + Escrow, LLC, which streamlines the closing process for real estate buyers and sellers. He is also a site supervisor and project manager for Coastland Construction and an assistant construction manager for The Related Group.
We thought this noteworthy father and son team, who enjoy a close personal relationship, were perfect icons for Father’s Day and all that it signifies.
