Our StoryIn the summer of 1991 mother and son duo James and Mary Causley bought an old bar on the corner of Elm and Knoblock and converted it into a retail store. Being avid Oklahoma State fans, they began printing OSU spiritwear and named their store Cowboy Collegiate. In the summer of 1998 a group of marketing students worked on rebranding the business for a class project. The students suggested Cowboy Collegiate pick a more unique name and Mary, in a moment of frustration, stumbled upon the name “for Pete’s sake.” The name, which plays off both the folksy expression and the school mascot, Pistol Pete, received overwhelming support in community polls. With a new name and a fresh coat of the now iconic orange paint, For Pete’s Sake soon became a Stillwater staple. 28 years later and the Causley’s are still selling t-shirts and cheering on the Cowboys!
Being dedicated OSU fans we just couldn’t resist the opportunity to share our enthusiasm for our school. We love OSU fans and our community and cannot think of a better business to be involved in. Go Pokes"~Owner Mary Causley
