Happy Halloween friends and foes #thewarisover #wakeup #pleasestandup

Our lady Dana, aka Great Dane, is moving on to a new job using many of the skills she learned here. We will be experiencing never-ending sorrow because of her absence, but we're so happy that she has found another place to call home! Congrats, Dana! ❤️

Happy One-Year, four months to our Inventory Manager, Nikki! We're four months late on the anniversary, but that's been four months of good old-fashioned, white collar hard work!

The Povertees Family lost a very important member. RIP to Hugh Hughes (Hughie's dad), a man who understood that in our world goodness is always boldness, and who inspired us to prove it with the fullness of our lives.

Today is the one-year work anniversary of our ecommerce and production assistant Dana! She's a great employee and a great person, and we're so fortunate to have a staff composed of people like her (except for Hughie, we're all working to balance him out).

Bleach Dyes coming soon, aka now everything has been stained ☔️

Sewing machine spotting at the art studio of the great @jonni_cheatwood. Once in a while you find someone who likes fabric as much as you do. Also, he works a couple streets over from where we started Povertees so it was fashion district destiny.

Our president Hugh F. Hughes IV only works out of the home, even if the home is an @airbnb on the road. We've been encouraging him to try a more adventurous color palette with his outfits (maybe a nice fuchsia or berry shirt), but he is very resistant to change.

Bailey gets it. But the question remains: when will the real Pawvertee be made? // PC: @zarablackstone

If your company or community needs custom 👕👚 this year, use it to support people in need (and LA manufacturing) by making it with us! Contact us for details, pricing, and frustratingly-nice customer service ✌🏻️// PC: @chrisleininger

Many many thanks to everyone who supported and pushed us this year. We're going into 2017 ready to take these buildings over 💪🏻, or least the smaller ones ✌🏻️. Happy New Year!
