Cuffy's of Cape Cod (508-393-9517) is a large, bright, stylish retail shop that sells only Cape Cod T-shirts, sweatshirts, polo shirts, and lounge wear. It isn't your typical T-shirt shop selling red plastic squeaking lobsters and puca shells. It has the atmosphere of an Abercrombie & Fitch: bright, open, trendy, and cool. And it sells only Cape Cod resort wear--nothing else.
There is a wide selection of high quality fleece, windbreakers, sweatpants, and shorts. The fabrics are 100% cotton for all shirts and sweats. The colors are enchanting, not your typical array: periwinkle, soft yellow, dusty rose, fuchsia, mint, sage, mulberry, and, of course, navy, green, gray, and red. The prices are reasonable, with great "buy two get one free" deals on mix and match sweatshirts and T-shirts. There's also a clearance section where stonewashed men's 100% cotton sweatshirts were marked down to $14.99. The store has very large sections for children, teens, men, and women. Sizes go to at least XXXL for a roomy fit. Women's occupies an entire room and includes larger sizes as well. You'll find zip-up, pullover, hooded, long sleeve, short sleeve, tanks and more--all embroidered or printed with CAPE COD across the front. And it's all tastefully done, no cropped tops, tacky, or distasteful messages on the seats of pants or revealing styles. You won't end up fighting with your teenage daughter over the appropriateness of a shirt.
There are fitting rooms and a bathroom for shoppers' convenience, plus plenty of parking. It was a comfortable, enjoyable atmosphere to find the perfect, wearable souvenir. There is also a Cuffy's in Chatham.
