Henry & Laffite Mercantile is in California.
In fact, the shirts we sell are designed by us in California; they're printed in California; they're shipped to you from California. (OK, some of our shirts are printed and shipped from North Carolina... but most are from California)
This is important to us. Why? Because we love our great Golden State. We love this big wonderful country of ours. And the more Americans (and Californians in particular) that can be employed in part by what we do, the better.
Disneyland is a uniquely American thing. Not in the sense that it doesn't exist elsewhere, obviously The Company has expanded to France, Japan, and China. But its creation was. All the creative energy, the industrial wizardry, the financial risk, the imaginative flights of fancy that had to come together to make Disneyland a reality, that was uniquely American.
And we love that here. Hopefully you do too.
Oh, and the name? Well, there aren't two guys named "Henry" and "Laffite." Nor is there one person named "Henry Laffite." The name is a reference to two of our favorite Disneyland attractions of the past and present. Henry was the name of the master of ceremonies of the foot-stompinest Jamboree ever, and it is from Laffite's Landing that you embark on a journey to where dead men tell no tales.
