Naclo Apparel was created by Jamie Williams & Charles (Chuck) Royals amid the first COVID-19 stay at home order as a form of expression and necessity. At the beginning of the pandemic, the pair temporarily left their respective lives in Brooklyn, NY & Los Angeles, CA to move home to North Carolina. Within a week of being quarantined in North Carolina and only a weeks worth of clothes each, Jamie and Chuck quickly realized that they were ill equipped for the months of “staying inside” to come. The partners figured out a way to creatively outfit themselves for the foreseeable future by tapping into one of their favorite clothing modification techniques, bleach processing. This need for fun, functional, and creative clothing birthed Naclo Apparel, a collection of vibrant “live in” wear that has blossomed into a growing community and product assortment.
