The Third Coast

The Third Coast

Growing up in the Midwest, we love the Third Coast.  Kiteboarding at Bryant Park in Traverse City, surfing near Marquette on Lake Superior or Grand Haven on Lake Michigan, sand boarding the giant dunes at Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore, the M-22 Challenge of run-bike-paddle at Sleeping Bear Dunes—all of it adds up to a special place with special people.  Looking for tasty brew?  Shorts in Bellaire, Founders in Grand Rapids, Bell’s in Grand Rapids—and more are scattered around the state that have satisfied customers from all over the country.

We are excited our designs include these special places.  There are so many memories ( how could you NOT want to wear what you love!  Ludington, Grand Haven, Leelanau County…then take the S.S. Badger across Lake Michigan and go north to Dorr County and then go further to Duluth,

Minnesota…and if you can’t take the winter, that’s OK because the summer and fall are spectacular—one of the reasons ABC names Sleeping Bear Dunes the most beautiful place in America—because the Great Lakes that make up the Third Coast are a site to behold!
