Everyone here at Mizzen+Main is dedicated to striving to keep our products high quality and American Made. One of the reasons we believe in the importance of keeping our products manufactured within our borders, is so we can pour our success back into the very place that helped us get started. We believe in our extraordinary troops and veterans that have kept us safe, while being away from loved ones. We believe in the foundation and principles on what this country was built on. We believe in opportunity and equality for all. We believe the US truly is the best country on earth.

 

We would not be where we are today without the many things this great nation has given us. We sincerely hope all of our Main Men and Women have a great Fourth of July weekend. Here is a round up of recent American focused posts.

You'll need: Whiskey, Sugar, Bitters, Ice & Garnish!

Whiskey
Traditionally, Old Fashioned uses rye whiskey instead of bourbon. While bourbon is equally as delicious, rye is a little sharper and way less sweet. We like Bulleit Rye and Wild Turkey.

Sugar
Pick a sugar that is more natural. Processed, refined white sugar will work, but using something like a turbinado sugar will you give better flavor! You can also use simple sugar (2 parts sugar to 1 part water).

Bitters
Angostura Bitters is where the party is at. If you want to be daring, opt for an orange bitter instead!

Ice
Because a good Old Fashioned is served on the rocks, nice and chilly. Use Whiskey cubes if you're not partial on watering down your drink.

Garnish
Orange and lemon peels work best! 

The Recipe
The Perfect Old Fashioned
-A shot of your choice whiskey
-1/2 tsp of sugar
-A bit of bitters (a few drops)
-Garnish with lemon or orange peel

Remember, you can make variations to your liking. The Old Fashioned is very forgiving and can be adjusted easily! Make it your own by using bourbon or sugar cubes instead.

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.

Where’s homebase?

 I live in either Austin, TX or Lubbock, TX depending on the year.

 Tell us a bit about yourself:

I grew up in Austin. After high school, I attended Texas Tech where I finished a BA in Philosophy and a BS in Physics; I stayed in Lubbock for two more years to do an MS in Biotechnology at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center studying the structure of the synaptotagmin protein. In 2010, I started a PhD in Biochemistry at UT Austin studying viral evolution. In 2012, I started medical school at Texas Tech, and after my 2nd year, I took a one-year sabbatical to complete my PhD in Austin which I finished this past December. Now, I am a postdoctoral fellow at UT Austin, and I will be starting back to my 3rd year of medical school in July of 2015. I will eventually finish school in 2017.

In science, my work focuses on understanding the forces that drive viral adaptation to the human host and predicting where adaptive changes are likely to occur in the virus; ideally, this will help to prevent the kinds of relatively poor vaccines we saw in the 2014-2015 flu season. I do entirely computational work in bioinformatics and biostatistics using viral sequences from epidemics. Most recently, I worked on the pandemic H1N1 and did some limited work with sequences from the West African Ebola outbreak.

In medicine, I work on Texas Medical Association efforts to increase funding for medical residencies in Texas, and improve access to care and funding for indigent patients. Every Wednesday evening that I'm in Lubbock, you can find me at the local Free Clinic.

What’s your favorite shirt?

My favorite color is the "Morse" because of the versatility... in particular if it gets the stiffer cuffs and collar. Otherwise, I like all of the gingham shirts.

Pick three letters:

EDU

Describe yourself with those letters:

 I am a scientist, researcher, future physician, but most importantly I'm always learning. I try to learn everything I can from anyone I can. A personal commitment to education is critical to the success of our society and to our personal health.

 What pattern or garment would you most like to see from Mizzen+Main?

 I'd like to see some polo t-shirts... really anything that doesn't show sweat. At the Free Clinic the air conditioner can't keep up with the Texas summer. A short sleeved, collared shirt would be a life-saver

Where’s home base?

I live and work out of Santa Cruz, CA but will forever think of myself as a Texan (born and raised in Austin). 

Tell us a bit about yourself:

I'm a husband to an amazing woman and a father of two crazy rug rats.

 I love to travel. I've lived and worked across the globe, from Alaska's Bristol Bay to the French Alps and New Zealand's South Island. 

I have the best job in the World. CrossFit captured my attention in 2007 and has since allowed me to blend what I'm passionate about (helping people) with what I do for a living. First, as a trainer in a box (US CrossFit) then on Seminar Staff and ultimately as a member of the CrossFit HQ Media team. I love the community, the ethos and the mentality.  

I get outside the box as often as possible. Surfing has gripped me recently and I get in the water whenever the opportunity presents itself. 

Every day is an adventure and life is very good. 

What’s your favorite shirt?

I spend a majority of my life in the Henley and Perfect Hoodie Henley, but the Salinger is my "Go To." 

Pick three letters:

P, F, D

Describe yourself with those letters:

Passionate

Funny

Dedicated 

 What pattern or garment would you most like to see from Mizzen+Main?

Coming from the training world, I think pants and shorts would be a strong addition. Mizzen and Main shirts have changed the game entirely for we strangely put together body types where shirts are concerned. I would love to extend that from the head to the toes.

Why is making conscientious purchases so important? We believe it is important for US businesses to manufacture products inside the states instead of sending it overseas. We believe in creating jobs for Americans and pouring our success back into the country from which we started. Mizzen+Main aims to hold this value close to us as we continue to grow and build.
