Entree Clothing shop
We started out in 1999. Just 2 guys printing designs on t-shirts in our dirty basement and selling it out of our parents truck. Four years later, we had a team of 5 people that all believed in each other and lived the same dream. 2000-2005 we got rejected from stores buyer about two hundred times. In 2006 we moved out of our mamas basement and moved into fashion district in the heart of New York City. We did our first trade show in 2007 and sold out completely I guess we were ahead of our time. We had to cancel and reject stores because we did not have enough funds to go into production. 2008.. it’s been a recession for us since the 90′s.. stop bitching! 2009-2010, Entree is now being sold in over 150 selected boutique all over the world…
Its been a long and everlasting journey…
Through out the years of trying to become a dope brand name we have had many.. way too many struggles, we’ve cried, we’ve lost hope, skipping meals for days to save money for production was the easy part. Finding the motivation and ambition to fight every negative thing that was thrown at us was the hardest part. Its crazy when all the neighborhood kids loved your shit but they didn’t have 10 dollar to buy a shirt because where we from… kids only have enough money to buy two lucy and a quarter drink. The rich kids didn’t relate to what we do. They only bought what they saw on other people. You know the type. Those are NOT the people we make our clothes for. Fuck em.
We have given more than what we have for this, we have loss our girlfriends, jobs, life, just because we are too focused on doing this the right way. But no matter how hard the road gets and how many times they kick us down we would get back up with a smile on our face, because we love what we do and we know who we are. We are not afraid of failing, we are afraid of not trying.
We have failed in many aspects. Rejected and dissed but we refuse to take the easy way out.
NO we don’t want to print michael jordan’s face on a t-shirt with no concept to it. NO we dont want to put skulls, guns, tattoos and eagles to make money. NO we do not want to make a street wear wanna be high end biting off LV to rip you off. We don’t want to follow the trend. We want to create something and design what our heart tells us to design. Our brand entree has been misunderstood since 1999, people keep asking us why don’t we make this, and make the design this way.. with this color.. that brand is doing this, the trend is on this.. these people just don’t get it. We skated when it wasn’t cool, we break danced before it became the shit, we been writing graffiti and we still go bombing!
We put all our eggs in one basket, without knowing what the futures holds for us but what we do know is that if you already know your future, then you have no future. Life is just a dream, and our dream is simple. We want to make dope clothes. We will hold on to our dream and we will keep dreaming. If you’re not feeling our brand, designs or lifestyle.. that’s cool, but we will EARN your respect by growing this rose on brooklyn’s concrete. Lead, never follow. If the shadow of the giant is too big, then we’ll shoot the fucking sun down!
This is our story, our brand, our lifestyle.
