Patriot Threads was founded by a 17 year-old High School student from Knoxville TN, named Brady Fernandes. This began as his Capstone Project for School - which is required for all students to complete before they can graduate. Brady chose to design a line of patriotic game day apparel and donates 25% of his direct to customer sales to non-profits that support veterans and other worthy causes. His patent/trademark designs combine state flag themes and local school colors into his logo of an outline of the USA wrapped in a Bow Tie ribbon. Raised in the South, Brady saw a need in the marketplace for high-quality classic Southern style clothing with a patriotic flair. It was really very simple: he wanted to take all the modern design elements of today’s youthful trends and tie these in with his love of Country, Southern tradition and an outgoing lifestyle to create an iconic brand that you would be proud to wear. With this help of his father - this became the brand Patriot Threads. Brady also has a passion for helping others and was inspired to donate a portion of all direct to customer sales to non-profits that support veterans who have sacrificed so much to serve our country and to other worthy causes. Since launching on Veterans Day Nov 11, 2015 Brady's line of Patriot Threads is now available in 42 retail locations (17 In TN) in 11 Southern States (AR, AL, FL, GA, KY, LA, MS, SC, TN, TX, VA) and has 30 designs for state/school colors combinations - He has created Patriot Threads Game Day Tail-Gating "Apparel With A Purpose"
