Brand Profile: Frocketees

I recently came across this company of patriot t-shirts, likely rocked by southern fraternity/college guys, but still fun. My favorite is the below:
They also offer an assortment of matching coozies and croakies. Check out what they had to say about how they got started below:

When did you first decide to start your company?
Last summer we saw an opportunity to create simple tee shirts and accessories with a focus on traditional, patriotic designs. It's amazing how difficult it is to find a good, casual tee shirt at a decent price.
What is your inspiration?
Our philosophy since day one has been to design shirts that we would wear ourselves.  We like pocket tees and patriotism, so that's what inspires our design.

Where did you first develop your style?
We grew fond of pocket tee shirts back in college. Our fraternity created tee shirts for every event and they were always pocket tees.

What do you hope your products will convey about yourself and your style?
We hope to inspire traditional American values and patriotism.

What has been the hardest thing about starting your own business?
With Frocketees.com the most difficult thing has been inventory management and production. It's a complicated area and it takes a while to develop good processes. While Frocketees.com is a new business, our parent company, Grandex LLC (http://grandex.co), had many of the other important business processes in place. This definitely made things easier from a start-up stand point.

What other products do you hope to add to your portfolio?
In addition to new tee shirt and koozie designs, we plan to add a selection of croakies for your sunglasses.
