ALUM APPAREL, A TRIBUTE!
It started with an idea to pay tribute to my alma mater, the University of North Texas, just 40 miles north of Dallas, where I also attended high school. Why the word tribute? Let's look at the definition: tri-bute | noun- "..a statement of gratitude, respect or admiration"...
Faith and family drive me to be the man I strive to be and pledging Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc while working my way through undergrad at UNT solidified my "job isn't done until the paperwork is done" attitude. The rest goes to my mid-west upbringing in Cleveland, Ohio, early adulthood in Northern New Jersey, and back full circle in my new home of Houston. I highly regard the people and places that have helped shape my life, and now ALUM APPAREL has become an outward expression of my gratitude, my tribute to my ALUMS!
#AlumsCare! The spirit of service is in our DNA. By partnering with Behind and Beyond The Mic (a 501c3 foundation) and other featured charities, a portion of every sale goes to support community programs nationwide and eventually around the globe!
Our mission is simple; we want Alum Apparel to be a brand extension of the feeling you get from being at home. Our collections pay TRIBUTE to the places you are from, YOUR ALUM, and we want you to wear them with pride!
"NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE FROM, YOU'RE ALUM"
