Cost of Living Co.
The prices we pay in life are sometimes not affiliated with money at all. They are things that come from inside us. Our emotions. What we sometimes have to give up in return to just keep going. Sometimes it's what we keep inside. It is everything... that didn't work out how we wanted it to. It is love, it is pain. It is everything we have to endure to keep going.
Cost of Living was created by Andy Brown in January, 2019. The idea came to be because he was going through some rather tough times. Andy was laying in his bed thinking to himself "Why do I have to feel this way, why do I have to give up so much, just to fall short in the end?" This was in relationships, sports, work, school, in almost everything he did. On that same night, as he coped with his issues in unhealthy ways as he always did, he said out loud to himself and kind of laughed "I guess it's just a cost of living."
Instantly, Andy knew he finally had the name to the brand he had been trying to start since he was a kid. He sat straight up and went to his desk, rolled another, and started writing ideas down. It had to be past 4AM. He knew that he could touch people who were going through tough times of their own, through his favorite thing: clothing. So he set out with just that as his mission.
