If you’re from Dixieland, just the name “Southern Fried Cotton” can conjure up imagery for you. You might harken back to the heart of summer, when the endless cotton fields turn white with blossoms. On the other hand, you might be a city slicker Southerner who knows as much about cotton production as you do the New York Yankees. Regardless of your breed of Southerner, you are bound to fall in love with this brand’s casual dignity and fine construction. Proudly proclaiming an interest in such activities as “Life, Liberty and Living South of the Line,” Southern Fried Cotton’s clothing is 100% cotton and 300% prep.
Since their North Carolinian beginnings in 2012, this brand’s tees have been their pride and joy. Kids will look adorable in their Pocket Tees, which feature imagery like mason jars of sweet tea and interested bumblebees circling nearby. Ladies will look lovely and feel comfortable in their tees, in colors like Violet and Lagoon Blue, with images like silhouettes of huntin’ dawgs. We knew fish were preppy, we knew purebred puppies were preppy, and we even knew elephants were preppy. However, we never imagined just how preppy livestock could be. Some of Southern Fried Cotton’s tees prove the preppiness of pigs, once and for all. That doesn’t mean this brand’s t-shirts miss out on the shotgun shells and tractors that are so integral to the Southern prep’s existence.
Lovingly nicknamed “SoFriCo,” this brand’s appeal doesn’t stop at cotton long-sleeved and short-sleeved tees. You can find their designs on koozies, stickers, sunglass straps, and even tumblrs to further showcase your Southern pride. Southern Fried Cotton is a sunny mix of laidback and bourgeois. And that’s why we love them so much.
