Let me introduce you to Marc Tell, designer for Fripp and Folly, an outdoor lifestyle brand with southern-inspired designs. Not only are all Fripp and Folly designs hand-drawn by their own artist, but they’re also all printed on Comfort Colors shirts in the south. With a variety of designs for every guy, Fripp and Folly truly represents life in the south.
Fripp and Folly is new to Glik’s. Can you tell our readers a little more about the brand?
Fripp and Folly started in 2013 and has quickly grown across the South as a brand celebrating the Outdoor Lifestyle. Our unique style and design sets our shirts and brand apart from the rest.
The Fripp and Folly logo is a rooster. What does that represent for the brand?
When we were discussing the logo we wanted something that was masculine and something that would represent who we are. Not saying we are chickens but a Rooster struts around with his head high, and is always confident. That’s who we are, confident, masculine and always have our heads held high.
What sets Fripp and Folly apart from other men’s southern brands?
Fripp & Folly stands out mainly for our unique style and design. Each design has a lot of time invested in the content, art and quality of the print. Our shirts are all Comfort Colors and tag-less. Each shirt has the label printed inside to avoid dealing with the pesky tag sticking up or irritating the back of your neck.
How do you begin the design process? Where do you find your inspiration?
Product Development, the two owners and myself meet with images, ideas and content. After the content for each shirt has been decided the art department sketches out a few concepts for each design. Again we meet and go through every design but this time to come up with the final design, pick colors and shirt color. Our inspiration comes from our life experiences. Dogs, Ducks, Trucks, Fishing and Guns are all part of the Fripp & Folly’s lifestyle.
What is the meaning behind the Fripp and Folly brand name?
Fripp & Folly name is unique and we often are asked where it came from and what does it mean. Fripp is an island off the coast of South Carolina and Folly is a beach near Charleston. Fripp is very upscale while Folly is very outdoor, fun and family oriented. This is exactly what our brand represents – Upscale, Outdoors and Family.
With the holidays coming up, what would you suggest gifting to a Fripp and Folly fan?
The best selling Fripp & Folly item is our T-Shirts followed by our Koozies. This paired with one of our Vegan Leather Koozies is a solid home run for any guy. Our Car coasters are also unique and a different type of gift (if you have never used or heard of a car coaster, they help keep your cup holders in your car clean and it’s also fun to have your favorite Fripp & Folly design in your car at all time).
What is your favorite shirt design for this season from Fripp and Folly?
My 2 personal favorite shirt is the Pointer shirt followed by the Largemouth Bass. I honestly cannot decide between the two which I like more.
What does the future for Fripp and Folly look like?
The future of Fripp & Folly has a lot of options. We are introducing SPF/Moisture wicking shirts for fishing and a wooden handled pocket knife. There are a few other items that are also on the horizon and I would suggest checking back early spring to see exactly what we have in store!
Finish this sentence: I raise my glass to Our Military, The Outdoorsman (and Women), and everyone who owns a Fripp & Folly shirt, without you all we wouldn’t be where we are at today!

Need advice on how to wear a flannel or plaid shirt? We are here for you! We will make sure you look your very best whenever you step out of the house in flannel or plaid. Plaid flannel button-down shirts can be worn a number of different ways if you are willing to give them a try!
1. Plaid or Flannel Shirts with Jeans
A great way to rock your plaid flannel shirt is to wear it with a casual pair of jeans. Depending on how casual you want to look, you can wear your shirt buttoned-up or left unbuttoned. If the plaid in your shirt features light colors in its pattern, a pair of dark wash jeans will look great. Alternatively, a dark plaid shirt worn buttoned-up could also be paired with khaki pants. Either ensemble would be great to wear to a party or other casual gathering.
2. Plaid or Flannel Shirts with Sweaters
If you want to be more creative and get more use out of your plaid shirt, try layering it under or over a sweater. Layering plaid shirts with sweaters in this manner exudes a sort of sophistication. Since your plaid shirt probably has a variety of colors and a busy pattern, it would look best under a solid colored sweater. This look is not just for the off-duty intellectuals. Anyone can try this look!
3. Plaid or Flannel Shirts over Graphic Tees
Get year-round use out of your graphic tees by layering them under your plaid or flannel button-down shirts. You could even go all out and wear colored denim jeans with your graphic tee and flannel shirt combo. Get creative in pairing colors and patterns within your ensemble.
Tips and Advice:
*Make sure you choose the right fit for your plaid shirts. If it is too big it will look messy and if it too small it will be uncomfortable.
*Try to avoid wearing plaid with busy patterns, like other plaids and stripes.
