We've all seen the ‘quiet please’ signs go up at the side of the green when a pro putts. They always seem to happen to me just when I’m about to sneeze or cough.
So this may be the ideal shirt to wear when watching golf.
Unfortunately the ‘real’ meaning of the graphic is concerned about apparel sponsorship deals for professional athletes.
The definition of ‘hush’ is to make someone be quite or stop talking.
In this situation it is to prevent professional golfers from talking about the horrendous conditions and pay of young female textile workers and the devastating water pollution caused by manufacturing their brightly coloured sports apparel.
They cannot talk about it, but they are all tainted by wearing exploitative toxic fashion.
You could say apparel sponsorship deals amount to being paid ‘hush’ money.
