When the founders of Yellowhammer Limited were deciding on a logo to embody the spirit of Alabama, they chose one of the state’s most storied residents: the yellowhammer. Selected as the state bird in 1927, its Alabama history goes back more than 50 years to the Civil War, when troops referred to as “yellowhammers” adopted uniforms and garish feather boas reminiscent of the chipper, yellow-headed bird. More than a century later, the feathered creature still represents state pride as a major component of the University of Alabama’s “Rammer Jammer” cheer. Yellowhammer Limited continues this long tradition of Alabama pride with quality menswear that prominently features the yellowhammer logo. The online retailer sells both casual and work attire with a selection of polo shirts, button-down oxfords, and T-shirts.
