We all have little things in our lives that lend a sense of home and place. For some, it’s a family recipe. For others, it’s a crisp newspaper and a warm cup of coffee on a Sunday morning. For me, it was a favorite shirt. I grew up wearing brand name polo shirts, and there was always a certain something in the look and feel of a polo that evoked a sense of the South for me. It’s a timeless design, and over the years, it’s come to represent a sense of tradition and style and class – particularly in the South.
After graduating from the University of Alabama, I moved to Birmingham to work in real estate. While I enjoyed my job, I kept returning to the idea of creating my ultimate, “favorite shirt.” Looking at the big name brands on the market, I felt they were all high on Southern style but lacking in a level of quality and comfort. I wanted to create a polo shirt that would stand ahead of the competition, offer higher quality, comfort, and design, while maintaining that quintessential Southern look.
At Southern Point Co., we focus on detail in both material and style and finish off each shirt with that classic polo logo. For me, the logo could only be designed after one thing – my dog, Greyton. Each Greyton Polo shirt is marked by a signature German Shorthaired Pointer logo. It’s man’s best friend representing man’s favorite shirt, and once you try our designs, you will understand that Southern Point Co. creates what a polo shirt should be.
