We knew with a unique name like Over Under, we would have some questions about what our name has to do with fine clothing and our retriever logo. Well, it all started with a shotgun. Over 100 years ago, a shotgun was introduced that has since become widely known as one of the finest styled sporting firearms to date. Built with only the choicest woods and metals and crafted with smooth lines and detailed hand engraving, the Over Under shotgun became not only a tool for wing-shooting, but also a work of art. At Over Under, we have created apparel and accessories that embody the detailed work of the classic firearm that captivated the attention of the sporting world. Our hand selected American cotton provides durability and softness and our guaranteed bridle leather comes from only the highest quality USA steer hides. Much like a fine firearm, our apparel displays eye-catching detail. We guarantee that each article fits and feels as great as it looks. All of our apparel and accessories have been hand chosen and crafted especially for you. Just like the elite Over Under Shotguns from the days of old, we at Over Under Clothing feel that the quality and timelessness of our products make each piece of clothing an exceptional hand crafted work of art.
What about the dog?
It may have been a shotgun that set the standard of elite production methods and fine quality designs, but it is the retriever found on our logo that makes this company a family business. We are fanatical about Labs so why wouldn’t we make our logo a Labrador Retriever. Everybody loves labs, right? But the love of labs is only part of our story. About the same time Over Under shotguns were coming on the scene and changing the sport of wing-shooting, a new breed of hunting and retrieving dogs had heads turning. The first Labrador Retriever registered with the American Kennel Club was in 1917. This pup was a product of decades of hard work and selective breeding. Their strength, versatility, hardiness, friendliness, looks, smarts and eager to please attitude has made the Labrador Retriever the most popular dog in America for hunters and dog lovers alike for 19 years running. The breed continues to be the total package not only for a working dog but for a family dog as well. I came to know and love these dogs at a very young age as I was surrounded by them, but it wasn't until after owning, and training my very own Chocolate Lab, that I began to truly understand what amazing animals and friends they quickly become. Their undeniable good looks as well as their unwavering devotion and affection for mankind sets them apart from the average hunting and retrieving dog. We knew from day one they were the perfect choice for our logo.
