Coast To Coast, Owned by Three Young Black Men Committed to bringing fashion to a city known for its music.
Based in Nashville, TN. C to C is one of the hottest emerging urban apparel brands for millennials on the go.
The new clothing company sets itself apart with designs inspired by cultures across the globe. The designs are creatively integrated into its fresh new collection of long sleeve crew necks, custom [INSPIRE] jacket, and signature [Make Wave$] hoodie. Every product, in order to simulate how culture and fashion change in today’s digitally driven age is unique and never restocked.
The brand’s earlier releases included The Wave Tee, an elongated t-shirt made from polyester which featured different variations of waves wrapped around the shirt. In addition to the Wave Tee, the Flag Bucket Hat creatively featured flags from Japan, South Africa and Brazil, strategically stitched together in order to represent unity and world peace.
In the unreleased Holiday Capsule, the brand outlines four very dominant pieces which include the Blue “Make Wave$” hoodie. “This hoodie represents where I see the company now says Evan Mann, part owner of CtC. We’ve learned a lot from our past mistakes and are confident in who we are as a brand. That confidence is what allows us to make waves in fashion to achieving the success we’ve been working for.”
In addition to the “Make Wave$” hoodie, the young men decided to create a very stylish multi-zipper bomber jacket with the word Inspire wrapped around the right arm of the jacket. “The Inspire Bomber Jacket represents where I see the company in the future, says part owner William BeAird, it’s design has a refined, luxury feel to it. I see Coast to Coast Sailing Co. becoming a major brand in the industry, providing inspiration for other young people to achieve their own dreams and success.”
“The Grid Tee represents the stage where we really came to know our brand identity, Owner Justin Miller said. As a result it features the three words that make up the core of our company’s message, [Explore. Create. Inspire.] The actual GRID represents us becoming more strategic in how we move business wise.”
The three college students agreed to mold their love of the West and East Coast cultures together to launch a new brand based on their life experiences.
“The Lighthouse Tee represents the struggles we experienced in the beginning of our career, finding our own path. The worn edges around the picture are a visual representation of us making it through the hard times. The lighthouse represents the hope and determination that has guided us through those times.
Where we’re from, people don’t get out much. We’re fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to grow up in families who traveled the world. Using our experiences and our brand’s unique fashion, we want to encourage people to get out of their comfort zones, we want to encourage them to explore new places, meet new people and take in new experiences,” says Justin Miller.
Coast to Coast is a unique brand with owners who come from totally different backgrounds. The diversity makes it possible for everyone to relate to our brand which encourages us to Explore, Create and Inspire.
Side note: My favorite is the bomber jacket! Definitely a tasteful item. I’m looking forward to rocking that during Christmas.
