We are officially announcing our partnership with the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Chapter 36 as our resource for donating seconds we manufacture. The DAV helps bring donations directly to the James. H. Quillen VA Hospital in Johnson City, TN. They gave us a tour of the grounds and we are so happy that our seconds (perfectly good clothing, but not able to sell on a retail rack) can find a good home to a Vet in need.

Our friends at Buckshot Sonny's Sporting Goods added some great items to their online store recently that were a fun collaboration between us. From their website, this Brown Duck Chore Coat is "reserved for the heaviest of duties. The time-tested cotton corduroy fabric, preferred by workwear manufacturers for its durability and wearability, starts out stiff as a board, but over time it will wear beautifully, forming to your movements."

Pointer Brand goes to Project Feb 2012

Pointer Brand at Project-Las Vegas

Pointer Brand is one of those very well priced American workwear companies that has been here since the 40’s. Rather than being fueled by the heritage/workwear movement, the brand remained staid and continued to produce their garments as necessary without any serious regard to trend. They do their own thing.

A Continuous Lean
