Detroit. Once the richest city in America. The heart of the auto industry, a leader in innovation, the birth place of Motown.
Was almost brought to its knees.
But her story isn’t over. Through hard work, passion, pride and the perseverance of its people, Detroit is writing the greatest comeback story ever told. This, is a story of GRIT.
Grit Clothing Company was founded on the South Side of Chicago, by lifelong residents Mike and Joe. Their mission was to highlight the positive attributes of the tough urban neighborhoods they grew up in, while giving back to their community. Grit aims to recognize other "Gritty" cities who reflect the same values as their hometown. Detroit represents these values.
We create simple, classic clothing for those who are proud of where they are from. Our unique designs are inspired by the streets and neighborhoods of Detroit.
We believe in never forgetting where you came from. That’s why we donate a portion of all proceeds back to Detroit. We choose different local charities based on customer feedback, so please send us your requests. We currently support the Detroit Police Athletic League (PAL): https://detroitpal.org/
