About Gifted Apparel…
Gifted Apparel prides itself on representing the gifted side in all of us.
Through our designs we offer art, style, and a urban flare that connects all of
us to the same motto; “its time to be gifted!” We have brought something back to
the t-shirt culture that has been missing for far too long, and our goal is to
share it with everyone.
Gifted Apparel came to life on a stoop in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn and grew quickly in
one of the hardest places in the world. Our “Viva La Brooklyn” design caught the
eye an earned the loyalty of everyone that came in contact with it. Not just in
Brooklyn, but everywhere, and became our signature piece shortly after. We all
have a Brooklyn state of mind, and you have the right to show it proudly no
matter where you’re from.
Our brand is for the world. Its for the rappers and the punk rockers, the
skaters and the poets, scholars and the athletes. There’s a common thread that
can’t be seen, but it links us all to one another. Gifted Apparel’s mission is
to bring that truth to light.
Join the movement.
Its time to be inspired, be bold, be yourself, and be gifted.
We love Gifted Apparel’s designs and think their brand is a perfect fit into the wardrobe of any Fly reader.
