Our founders with a passion for USA fashion noticed a gap in the industry and followed their passion to learn more. Taking trips to southern factories to further learn their craft, starting with first hand experience in knitting, dyeing, cutting and sewing. The saying, “It takes a village” has never been more true. Mentors from all different sectors of the industry, from styling to production and supply, taught our founder the ins and outs. Royal Apparel launched in the early 90s on a desk in the Garment District of Manhattan. The original team of two began growing, supplying private label premium knitwear to luxury stores, national fashion brands and leading retailers. By the end of the 90s, a vast majority of the fashion industry moved production overseas. With passion, determination, and sheer power of will, Royal Apparel stayed true to our DNA of our made in USA mission and never left.
