I created Jet Black Streetwear because having gone to school for fashion design, I have a healthy respect for fashion, but I was also concerned with being comfortable.
I was probably about 2 weeks into the quarantine of 2020 when I thought it would probably be a smart thing to create something that would not only occupy my brain until I had to go back to work, but would also allow me to create something that let me get out of my grubby sweats. I wanted to create something that looked good, whether I was sitting at home binging Netflix or running to the store. I was getting tired of having to change my clothes on the few occasions that I had to actually leave the house.
I’d been thinking for a long time about starting and building a brand; something that I could create cool pieces for, and grow. I had no idea what I wanted it to look like, but I DID know that damn near my entire wardrobe is BLACK.
Don’t Judge. I’m working on it.
So…from that, I decided that I should probably create pieces that I’d want to wear. For instance, our Signature Rash Guard is something that I probably wear 2 or 3 times a week. Simply because I love the bold lettering on the arms, and it’s just very striking. I also find myself in our Signature Yoga Leggings…a LOT. They’re super comfortable, I throw a t-shirt or a sweatshirt on top and I’m good to go. They’ve got a pocket that holds my credit card and keys, so I really don’t need to carry a purse 🙂
