Fashion Superheros: 541 Threads

Do any of you ladies find it difficult to shop for the guys in your lives? Please tell me it's not just me. I have such a difficult time. I don't know what dudes like. Or want. Or need. It was easier when I only had one brother. But now I've got two brothers-in-law (side note: did you know that's the plural of the word?). And it's rough. Birthdays. Holidays. 

One thing that makes it more difficult is that I like to shop local and small businesses whenever possible. This mountain town I live in has a lot of local options, and that's one thing that I love about this place. (If winter were a few months shorter, it'd be paradise.) 

You may remember it was my brother's birthday a few weeks ago.  It used to be that gift cards were my go-to gift for this guy. But not any more. There is a local shop that I know I can walk in and find something for the bro that he'll love, and that makes me happy. 

541 Threads is not only a local company, but it's a local company that is dedicated to helping others. For every shirt they sell, they donate five meals to local food banks. How awesome is that? 

And their gear is trendy. It's something you'll want to wear. Not something that'll get shoved in the back of a closet. (Or in the case of my gypsy life, the trunk of my car.) These guys are like the superheros of the fashion world. Fighting hunger one shirt at a time. 

Here's the bro rocking his 541 birthday hat from our other sister: 

Look how happy he is. 

You guys really should go check out 541 Threads. Especially if you're looking for a gift for someone in your life. They'll be happy to get a sweet shirt, and you'll feel good knowing your gift is helping fight hunger. 

Go check out 541 Threads. Have a good weekend. And come back next week for an exciting announcement.
