The Line | the Old Try
“I remember the first time I crossed it – an event that I didn’t really think about, but that’s lived in my memory ever since: the Mason-Dixon. Mason & Dixon’s line is a funny thing. When it was surveyed in 1763, it was used to settle disputes between the British colonies. For us, it’s the difference between college and pro ball; the difference between sweet tea and tea; and the difference between those who will wear white after Labor Day and those who won’t. Pretty simply, it’s something Northerners don’t much think about and Southerners don’t much cross. And it don’t matter where you stand, you’re on one side of it or the other.”
- the Old Try
I am simply in love with the Old Try. There isn’t much more to say other than they run a shop that I constantly dream I had myself (seriously/c’mon lottery money). Mr. Old Try is a fellow Ole Miss Grad and I assume a product of their Art Dept (as is yours truly). They produce amazingly simple yet thoughtful work.
I have already convinced several of my friends to make some purchases and I urge you internet southerners to do the same. Support your own (even if they do reside above the line).
