Where's Your Sandbar?

Hunting & Gathering


Is it a tidal sandbank connecting the remote islands of Waya and Wayasewa of the Yasawa Islands, Fiji or the shoal between the Isles of Scilly, off the coast of Cornwall, England, UK? Most likely if you’re reading this, you’re a Florida native and your sandbar is probably within a 160 mile radius. But theoretically, that’s not really what this local company out of Saint Petersburg means—according to Sandbar Clothing Co. owner Chris McCormick, your sandbar is wherever, whatever or whoever brings you happiness. Designed for everyone—it's the place you go to get away and have no worries, whether you're reading a book, hiking up a mountain or cruisin' on a boat out to that island calling your name.

“For a good chunk of my life I spent almost every weekend boating with friends, where the sandbar was our destination—a little collection of sand in the middle of the ocean right by our hometown. It was our home away from home, where we went to escape reality. When I got to college, I found myself daydreaming in class about the sandbar. I started thinking about the others around me and if they were doing the same thing. That’s when ‘where's your sandbar’ was created. Shortly after, the first line of shirts were released,” shares McCormick.

Sandbar Clothing Co., established in the sunshine city in 2016, purveys simplistic, yet stylized tees for exploring and enjoying the outdoors. The universal shirts are 100% ringspun cotton and preshrunk already (to avoid a saddening misuse of the dryer). ‘The Compass’ Snapback Hat and ‘Salt & Stone’ T-shirt are highlights of the line, as well as ‘The Original’ design which comes in cool solid colors—sporting its identifying outlined atlas of the world. Threads come in noticeably light, snug-worthy soft fabric and relaxing fits—because comfort is what’s key when you're on the search...

“Your sandbar is waiting for you—wherever, whatever, or whoever it is. Find it. Enjoy it.”
