How time flies...July is just about over and here we are celebrating our first birthday! It’s been a banner first year for us and we couldn’t have done any of it without you. Here's a look back on our inaugural year!
Looking at our showroom in New York City, it’s hard to imagine that all of this started with a mood board in a small apartment where we crafted the idea (and the name!) for Flag & Anthem. After spending decades in the business and building many brands, it was time to create a line of clothing that not only we would wear ourselves, but would resonate with every guy out there.
We hit the ground running, flew to Hong Kong to meet with our manufacturers, travelled to Amsterdam and London looking for the next trend, put together our first sample line and flew all over the US meeting with buyers, and finally ended up at the MAGIC tradeshow in Las Vegas to sell the line. A few months later we shipped our first collection for Fall in July 2016 and Flag & Anthem was officially born. Now we can be found in a variety of retailers from coast to coast and almost everywhere in between.
One of our favorite things about having our own clothing line is being able to dress our friends. Nothing beats showing up to happy hour and having all your friends in Flag & Anthem. The best part is, they are wearing the clothing because they like it, not just because they like us. If you run into one of us on the street one day, you may find us wearing these... here are some of our favorite pieces from the first year of Flag & Anthem:
Knowing that we are growing as a company because guys enjoy our clothing truly makes us proud. Every day, we hear from our customers about how much they appreciate our product. When we see someone come back to the website and make a second or third purchase, we know we are doing something right and nothing makes us happier. We've had an incredible journey so far and we don't take any of it for granted. We hope to continue to grow and improve in everything we do.
Thank you for all your support over the past year!
