Y'all know what the 'Merican dream is? It's like the American dream, but it's got a Southern accent. Best friends Joe Curtis and Tyler Stampler have nearly achieved it. A joke over Skype about starting a Southern-style clothing line turned into the real deal. And now the guys are slinging their Straight Southern line on the web.
To explain the concept behind the clothing company, Curtis used Billy Joel's "New York State of Mind," "New Yorkers are (in)famously known for their pride in their roots, regardless if those roots are grounded by location, family affiliation, or just the feeling of belonging. Straight Southern wants to produce exciting, quality products while keeping operations laid back, familiar, customer service oriented, and essentially make Southern hospitality tangible through our brand."More »
