I ran across Volunteer Traditions on Facebook a few weeks ago. I fell in love. Easy for me to do with UA or Southern attire, but none the less, I fell in love.
The tshirts I bought us say “Fall means football in the South”. I bought the white with maroon text for William and the grey with crimson text for me. One of these days I’ll take a picture of us both in them–we’ll be cute. 🙂 I also got both of us koozies. I think I like them because they’re so subtle. They’re a shout out of state pride but not too overbearing. The koozies have the Alabama and Mississippi state flags in the outline of the state itself. I ordered the navy one for William just because I liked it, but it was pointed out to me that it was an Ole Miss koozie (which I didn’t think about) and William wasn’t too happy about that. Luckily, the amazing folks at Volunteer Traditions threw a red one into our order which is much more MSU than the navy! (Whew. Crisis averted.)
I will also say that I called them to ask about sizing on the tshirts and I have never talked to nicer people. They were SUPER helpful and we chatted a bit about which SEC schools we’d gone to, etc. etc. They have a cool story too, if you’re interested you should take a look. Even though I didn’t grow up in Alabama, my family is from there and so is half of my heritage (my momma’s side o-the-family) so I am always MORE than proud to represent AL wherever I am. It helps that I went to UA for school…but regardless, I love me some Alabama.
I’ve got my eyes on this grey hat next. I have two UA caps, both crimson, so I’m needing one that isn’t a shade of red! Check out Volunteer Traditions, the Bryants are so happy to support them!!!!!
