Yo Colorado highlights state’s golden age with retro colors in clothing line

It’s hard not to think about the good ole days right now. And that’s part of why this week’s “In Good Company” is so fitting.

Yo Colorado has captured the essence of Colorado from its most colorful days.

Their storefront in Golden is like a time warp, filled with clothing and colors from Colorado’s golden age.

“I came here when I was a kid and camped with my family,” said Yo Colorado co-founder Brad Miller. “And, I have these memories of campers with the brown, orange, yellow stripes on them.”

Miller and fellow co-founder Pe Maslowsky started Yo Colorado seven years ago as an ode to the past with a modern day appeal.

Golden raises $14.5M to build a wiki-style database of tech knowledge

Wear Your Age!
