Originally it started has just seventeen. One-seven. The thought came to me when I was fourteen years old. I loved the thought of having a brand something people could say they love, admire or even strive to be like it. At first it just meant completion. The number seventeen is the number of completion a symbol and a number to chase after and complete a goal or a dream. The idea manifested so much so that I dreamt one night I was managing my very own store in a mall called Larry Taylor’s seventeen. The name came from my grandfather and adding “Larry Taylor.” I called my grandfather that night and told him about how one day this dream of mine would become the real deal after three years and several failed attempts of getting it off the ground. But now I can proudly say I’ve made the first step into one of my many dreams and most importantly I can show my grandfather, LT, that the promise was never forgotten.
Fashion plays a large role in our daily life’s. We wear it, it represents a part of us, it expresses us, and it’s a part of us. Larry Taylor’s goal is to provide a brand that not only appeals to one audience but all. From unique designs to simple shirts with the brand name. A clothing store made so anyone can come in and walk out satisfied with something that represents them and love is always the number one goal.
The vision or dream is, first of all, giving quality guaranteed clothing, and secondly, eventually becoming a largely recognized brand among the top brands already. One that everyone can appreciate and love. One that can have anyone come in and quickly find something that appeals to them and there style. Our vision is every person can have there style done right.
