There’s a rumor going around that you’re involved with a new line of preppy clothes.
Let’s face it—I like to look good. The first step to looking good is dressing well. I think clothes make a statement about the wearer. This past summer, three of my friends from high school and I decided to start a new clothing line based on southern culture. After all, Vineyard Vines is northern, Polo screams British, and Lacoste is based in France. Delta Days will be all about the south. Every shirt will have a name—like Delta Dawn, which will be orange, boll weevil (green) and blue suede—and each will be packaged with its own story card. Tradition, honor, and strong values are the pillars of the Southern culture, and thus the central themes of the clothing line. We’ve considered many logo possibilities, but have yet to decide on one that truly represents our ideas.
