•MILES TO GO• began in 2006 as a creative outlet for myself, Greg Kerr after years of being turned off by the clothing available in stores and online. I wanted to see more clothing that had meaning behind the images and wasn’t just a ton of logos and names slapped all over a shirt to create a walking billboard. I have always been very influenced by art and literature and decided quickly that I would base the line around that theme. I want to offer clothing that goes against the stream and doesn’t play into current trends in indie fashion. The goal was to create the kind of shirt that you want to wear for years and create a piece of walking art that has a story behind it. I hear a lot from customers who really enjoy explaining the tee’s to their friends and when strangers stop and ask them about it. Miles to go is my chance to be a patron of the arts and share my influences and hopefully turn people on to new books and literature they previously hadn’t known about.
•MILES TO GO• is a one man company and I try my best to stay involved and get to know my customers who continue to support what I am trying to do. Please feel free to contact me about designs you’d like to see, print methods and questions, new items, anything. The name miles to go is taken from the last two lines of a Robert Frost poem, Stopping by the woods on a snowy evening. “the woods are lovely dark and deep, but i have promises to keep and miles to go before i sleep, and miles to go before i sleep”
Check out the books section on the site if you would like to learn more about any of the literature chosen for designs.
