Who says winter has to be drab, or neutrals for that matter. Every winter I look forward to wearing less color in more interesting ways. For me, it’s not only hazardous to everyone’s health to go fully neutral until spring—no one wants to endure Seasonal Affective Disorder—it’s also unnecessary. Winter is a time to wear darker colors but to accent them with lively splashes. This winter find your color inspiration in these American-made clothing and accessory brands. I guarantee they’ll cheer up your wardrobe.

Ex-Pats of The South, the gang at The Old Try show their Southern roots by designing traditional letterpress products with a modern aesthetic. This print called 12th Man immortalizes the legendary 12th Man E. King Gill of Texas A&M who stood on the sideline in January of 1922 in waiting to lead his team to victory against Centre College. Gill was never put in the game, and A&M won anyway, but this print shows that just a little bit of light in the face of darkness can bring happiness and success.
