Old Try

The Marrying Type: An Old Try + Lucky Luxe Collaboration


We teamed up with one of the nation's finest wedding stationary designers to offer The Marrying Type.
She's printed on 100% cotton paper, comes with the state seal of your wedding state. Oh you wanna geek out more? We had old wood type set for the headlines and vintage furniture for the borders. We had slugs of type cast, linotype-molten-lava-style, for the smaller bits. And to finish it off, we...

Tales of Olde


We've got some good friends in Boston. They've got a band named Tales of Olde. And they are worth the listen.

We know Lucas and the gang through church. And we just consider ourselves so fortunate to've praised the King of Universe with dudes this dang talented.

They are working on an EP now I think. Though, I have been known to give out faulty information a time or two, so the truth might be they...

Old Try x Buffalo Jackson



I was just trying to ascertain country of origin for a pair of Buffalo Jackson mocs. Sent an email. Heard back in short order from the founder. Said he was a fan. Flattered, I emailed a thank you. I then spent that money on something else. Prolly pizza and beers. Wish it would've been on this vest.

Fast forward to early 2013. We met up with Xan for breakfast in Charlotte. Which is where Buffalo...

Droppin' bows.


Days like today make me so dang excited. Is it because it's the weekend? Partially. Because I'm working from home, thus still in worn blue jeans and an old flannel? Partially. Because I'm cranking a Mogwai remix so loud because my upstairs neighbors are at work? Prolly.

But mainly cause several months of work have culminated in the release of a collaboration with Starboard Clothing Co.out of...

Old Try for High Cotton.


I've written about meeting the folks at High Cotton last year at a football game in Oxford.

Well, since then, we've been in touch and have tried a couple of different things. And now, for all of you guys, we got something that we're stoked about.

We designed a shirt for them.



Now, the shirt design is only half the story. We went digging through some old bits of print history and found some old...

Southern Weddings.



We were hit up a little while ago by Southern Weddings Magazine. They have a feature every now and then where guest editors put together a tote bag of essentials for Southern destination weddings. Then they get designers to design the front of that bag.

Well, we were so lucky as to be asked to design the bag that the very talented Meredith Perdue(currently of Maine, but Carolina in her mind) put...

Working with Bourbon & Boots.



Got an email from a guy months ago. Something about a sales site that was going to start that hadn't started but was going to and it was going to be really popular and Southern and we should hop on board. I sent back an email saying no. That I wasn't interested.

Then I get another email, and he says that he'd like to talk about it. Now, if a Southerner is going to approach you again, he's either...

Working with William Lamb and Son



We're tickled to have teamed up with WM. Lamb & Son, of Tallahassee, FL on our newest batch of Manners prints. We packed them up and shipped them down yesterday and they will be selling them from their website in the near future.

They'd reached out to us a few months back, as we run in similar circles of Southern folks on the internet. I'd seen them when their patterns popped up on the back of a...
