We are a Nation of firsts. We are a District of dreamers, doers, change makers, and future history makers.
Birthed from the same spirit of those who awake with a passion to move forward, reject the sidelines, and do what they've dreamed, DISTRICT of CLOTHING was created to encourage positive messaging, local pride, and a "can-do" mentality. We triumphantly embrace the creative, entrepreneurial, and community doer spirit blossoming throughout our communities.
It’s no secret our dynamic is evolving–our nation is inclusively expanding to embrace the growing, and powerful, Creative and Maker community full of change makers and inventive souls, and DISTRICT of CLOTHING is well-aligned to provide inspiration and apparel for this evolution. Our items are designed for comfort, style, and anyone who goes to bed looking forward to the dawning of a new day.
Doers keep doing. Dreamers wake up, we need you. Let's make something happen.
