We're all for wearing plain “gray man” apparel when it's necessary to fly under the radar, but that doesn't mean you need to dress like a movie extra 24/7/365. There are times where it's nice to express yourself through your clothing, and a graphic T-shirt can do just that. When you can support a veteran-owned and -operated business at the same time, that's just icing on the cake.
We recently heard about Brothers & Arms, a firearm-oriented apparel company based in the unlikely locale of Riverside, California. Despite hailing from a state notorious for its draconian gun laws, the crew at B&A made a point to create a clothing line for “military, law enforcement, fire, EMS, and patriot gun enthusiasts with a strong belief in the 2nd Amendment”. The company also says its designs are intended to make a statement — “We create clothing items that evoke emotion and generate conversation, sometimes strong ones.”
Brothers & Arms has recently expanded its apparel line, which now includes more than 50 shirt designs, as well as hoodies, hats, and bandannas. Quite a few ladies' shirts are available as well. In addition to clothing, the company offers some firearm parts and accessories — AR handguards, single-point slings, and their latest product, B&A True Blue gun lube.
