This place just gets in you somehow…it’s special like that.
If you’ve spent any time here you’ll know what i mean.
Whether it’s where you planted your roots, vacationed or had a tour of duty it’ll always be a part of you.
Know who you are…
85 South Apparel & Design came out of a desire to capture and represent the spirit of this place we all love. And the connections we have to it.
We’re a beaches & backwoods lifestyle brand inspired by the communities stitched together by a little stretch of road in the panhandle of Florida.
Hwy 85 connects North & South county – but more than that – it connects its people to this treasured coastline.
We’re a mix of country and coastal, groomed and gritty, and hey y’all with a little HELL YEAH!
A hint of honky tonk, a helping of hip-hop and a smidge of rock-n-roll.
A dash of days-gone-by with the taste of today.
A spoon full of sun soaked days and dirt road nights.
And when the tailgates and the sun go down…
Mix in a little extra somp’n – somp’n…
Print that mofo on some fine comfy cotton and now you’ve got a taste of that 85 South life.
Know what you do…
With each product we offer we try to bring out a purpose and a story that ties back to a memory or experience we’ve had living in the south.
From enjoying summers on the beach or playing barefoot in the tall grass eating watermelon to kicking back in your wooden rocking chair sipping sweet tea.
Our products represent the staples of the South: friendship, family and Friday night lights.
You see, being southern isn’t just about location.
It’s a matter of letting your heart pull you back into a simpler lifestyle.
As a homegrown, southern family company with a focus on our local schools, we proudly offer logo and themed apparel for local elementary, middle and high schools.
Balancing that with a variety of original designs and branded items sporting our unique style, sense of humor and southern charm makes what we do unique.
Know why you do it…
There’s a special place in our hearts for our local kids. All our kids.
Especially those that don’t always have the best, but deserve the best.
We give a percentage of every sale to our partner schools so they can invest it back into our kids.
We also work with local non-profits like “Kids With Confidence” that show those less fortunate kids that people do care about them.
Know where you’re going…
Our vision is to give each of our 85 South communities a megaphone so each unique voice can be heard loud and clear.
We just want to pay homage to our home, and tip our hats to our homies.
We’d love to have you with us, because 85 South is all of us.
So slow down a little, smell the honeysuckles, and look & feel great doing it with 85 South.
