Southern Fried Cotton Review

Recently I began a part time job in a retail clothing department. Our store is located in Coastal Georgia, so many of the lines of clothing we carry are from Southern companies and have designs that are popular in our coastal communities.

One of these lines is the Southern Fried Cotton Company located in Clemson, South Carolina.  SoFriCo is a graphic design and screen printing company that has been in operation for 25 years.  It specializes in T-Shirts and hats.  

The company was begun by three young men, John, Chuck and Chris, who were all raised in the Upstate of South Carolina with  frequent trips to the coast, plenty of weekends on the lake, and lots of time spent on dirt roads and back woods with either a dog or a gun…or both. Their creative designs reflect this lifestyle and appeal to people old and young who appreciate and enjoy the Southern lifestyle.


The goal of the owners of Southern Fried Cotton is to create apparel that captures the Southern spirit…. from the rustic countryside to the vibrant coastline! They combine country with coastal, sand with dirt, prep with grit, and vintage with new. Some of their designs reflect the good ole days.  Other designs are timeless that all ages can appreciate.  And, they’re all Southern Fried!

Southern Fried Cotton uses the hound dog as their logo.  Not only is the Hound an iconic sporting dog in the deep south, it is also a great identifier of the Southern Fried lifestyle lived by the owners of SoFriCo.  


Southern Fried Cotton is a 'Home Grown Apparel Co' inspired by Southern Style. It's the logo on their T-shirts.  Today, the founders of SFC live and work in Clemson, SC with their families.  As they began to raise daughters, Chris, John and Chuck realized they needed a softer side to their line of Southern apparel and, thus, MG Palmer was born.

This side of Southern Fried Cotton was created to inspire and encourage these daughters and all young ladies to be strong, courageous, and always sweet.  

These designs can be found on display in their retail stores in Clemson and in Greenville, South Carolina, and on their website at

Hats and Accessories

Southern Fried Cotton Company also carries baseball style hats like the one shown in the intro photo, and accessories such as Koozies.

They also carry a line of Sweet Youth clothes for kids.

We carry many of the Southern Fried Cotton apparel and gift items in our store.  Working there, it has been fun to see how much local customers and our visiting tourists love this brand.

  1. This looks like a fabulous apparel line created in true Southern style, Very inviting! Since I love fried food, cotton and dogs, it appears to be made just for me.

  2. These adorable designs, as well as their clever company name, bring the South alive and definitely make me smile. Love Southern Fried Cotton!

  3. Thanks for your sweet comments, Susan and Mouse. I love the name of this company and think it is very clever. The shirts are well made and very colorful with fun designs reflecting the coast (crabs, fish, seahorse, etc.) and other designs of hunting, fishing and hound dog scenes popular in our Southern states. Our store carries these designs that appeal to our Southern population.

  4. I'm aheaded down your way this September, so I think I will have to check out this line of clothing. Sounds like a real winner to me. Soveniers for everyone from the deep south with a real deep south affiliation. Thanks for this great and timely review.

    1. Thanks, Olivia. This line of clothing is very popular here.

  5. Looks like comfortable clothing, and I love the name of the company, very creative! Terrific vacation gift ideas for when you holiday - love all the color choices too

    1. I love the name of the company, too, Barbara. It's very clever. Thanks for visiting my review about Southern Fried Cotton.

  6. I just the company name, looks like a fine line of clothing all with a Southern touch. I really like the hat with the drumstick on it. Excellent review Pat Thanks :)

    1. The company name caught my eye immediately, Gene. So clever for a line of clothing representing a Southern area.

  7. Those look like clothes I'd enjoy wearing. I'd not heard of this brand before, but I will be sure to check it out.

    1. Thanks for visiting my review, Barbara. Always fun to find a new line of clothing.

  8. Watch the fiber content. I bought a shirt thinking by the name it was all cotton and it was only 37% cotton. The Rest was polyester and rayon. When I’m out in the sun, the shirt gets burning hot. I had to donate it as could not wear this short leave shirt in the summer. Just check the label before buying.
