Our journey began back in 2014 when our original founder, Frank, was struggling to fashion his comb over into something that looked respectable (which is never easy). After a few years of denial, he finally decided enough was enough and what was left of his once perfectly groomed hairline had to go. This was the day Bald Apparel was born.
With a new found lease on life, free of anxiety and wind direction worries, our fearless leader took some time to reflect on the somewhat hairy (pun intended) journey that he had been on, and quite simply wondered what all the emotional fuss was about. It wasn’t until he embraced his bald was he then able to move forward with his life in a more positive way.
Those of you who are bald(ing) can probably relate to the above and we are here to tell you, it’s okay. We are not here to preach; Bald Apparel is not a righteous crusade by any means. We simply want people to understand that bald is sexy and we want bald people to feel proud about their appearance. The goal was to create apparel that would empower bald(ing) people and inspire those around them. A brand that delivers a premium product to the customer that could be worn with pride.
Times have changed. The old stigma of anxiety and paranoia that came attached to those beautiful bald people is well and truly in the past. No more hiding what nature has given you; the comb over must go; people will fear the shine; and confidence comes from within.
According to the American Hair Loss Association:
By the age of 35, approximately 66 percent of men will have experienced some degree of hair loss.
Bald Apparel was an idea that originated over 7 years ago when “The Vision” was hanging on to a few strands of hair, desperately trying to manufacture the best look he could manage out of a very obvious and awful combover. Looking in the mirror it suddenly dawned on Frank that his combover was like a bad relationship, it had to end. He liberated himself and his skull. From that day on “The Vision” decided that there would be no more combover, no roots and it’s time to fear the shine. With that, Bald Apparel was born – an idea created to provide quality clothing to the bald and be worn with pride! This brand speaks volumes and it says “I’m proud to be bald and I look f@cking awesome!”
First one in! Last one out! And we are not just talking about “The Chief” scheduling his pub visits. With a background in business and a penchant for cold beer, fate (and beer) would play a hand the day that Matt met Frank in the pub.From that day forward it has been “The Chiefs” goal to breathe life into the brand that is Bald Apparel. With the support of the team and with “The Chief” at the helm; it is our job to grow this brand and get it into the home of every beautiful bald man out there!Having first hand experience of the roller coaster of emotions that hit you once you realise you are not gonna keep hold of your hair, has helped me to understand that for many, the fear of baldness is not a joke. Men’s mental health is not a joke. Our goal is to provide our fellow baldies with a brand and style that can be worn with pride!”
Long time Baldy, first time investor. Made my fortune helping Korean kids distinguish between R & L and had a spare bag of cash laying around. In all seriousness I started going bald in my early 20's, it was a very tough time and I spent many years trying to hide it from friends and family. Now that I’ve gone full circle and accept being bald it’s hard for me to remember just how big of an impact this had on me at the time. I suffered from a lack of confidence and was ashamed of going bald, especially at such a young age. One day I was convinced by a friend to shave it all off and embrace it. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done and although it wasn’t immediate I soon realised that confidence comes from within and nothing as trivial as not having hair will detract from my sense of self. I’m now so used to being bald that I don’t think I’d have it any other way.
