Wherever you are in the country or world, seeing a person proudly support the place you both call home makes them an instant friend, whether you share a knowing glance or strike up a conversation.

Look up entrepreneur in the dictionary and it might just mention Billy Borland. After spending years working for financial firms, he set out and began his own consulting company, helping employers and employees navigate through the sticky world of insurance and workplace benefits for the past ten years.

Billy always wanted to create something that others could enjoy and share with their friends and family. With his wife Shannon as his constant cheerleader Billy created State Republic, a clothing line celebrating “Home”.  For Billy, celebrating home is one of his favorite parts of southern culture, along with family, friends who become family, and deep-rooted traditions. This is apparent in State Republic’s simple design: your state at the center of “HOME” —a calling card to those around you.

State Republic allows people to connect with others through the sense of pride for their home state. Wherever you are in the country or world, seeing a person proudly support the place you both call home makes them an instant friend, whether you share a knowing glance or strike up a conversation.

While fairly new, State Republic has already teamed up with local non-profits to help those less fortunate, expressing their steadfast values and commitment to their own home of Birmingham, AL.
