The inspiration for Choctaw Ridge came from an old underwear box from the 1930s.
To me, the box represented an era when men put considerably more effort into their appearance. Shoes were polished at all times. Shirts and pants were freshly pressed. Every aspect of a wardrobe was considered and cared for, all the way down to the undergarments.
Needless to say, times have changed. Back then, items were of a higher quality, and you bought the best you could afford and seldom more than you needed. Today, it's all about fast, cheap and disposable.
Choctaw Ridge is a return to how things used to be. From the materials, to the construction, to the packaging, no corner has been cut and no expense has been spared. We believe that our garments are as good, if not better, than those of the past. That's why we put them in the same box.
Like those men of yesteryear, we understand that less can be more, when less is the best.
Choctaw Ridge is a town in Mississippi, immortalized in the classic country song Ode to Billie Joe. Neither the brand nor the name have any affiliation with the Native American Choctaw Nation.
