OUR BRAND STORY
The South Side of Chicago is a tough place, but not necessarily a bad place. Those who grew up here know that we do things the blue-collar way. We work long hours, overtime and side jobs to provide for our families. We hang out in city parks and corner bars. Our neighborhoods are sacred to us. People try to describe our way of life: some call it a mentality; some call it a lifestyle; we call it, GRIT.

We create simple, classic clothing, representative of where we grew up. Our unique designs are inspired by South Side values, like: Family, Neighborhood Pride, Hard Work and Nostalgia.
We believe in never forgetting where you came from. That’s why we donate a portion of all proceeds back to our community. We choose different local charities based on customer feedback, so please send us your requests.
