Meet Rags Life of R.A.G.S Apparel

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rags Life. 

Hello Rags Life, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
R.A.G.S. Clothing Company was founded by two entrepreneurs, Ernesto “Ness” Nesbeth and Rodney “Stunna” Salomon in February 2012. 

Ness was born and raised in Brooklyn, NYC. With a strong love for music, a passion for urban culture and fashion, along with an eye for what’s “hot” he decided to venture into the clothing line business. He is the creative eye and the lead designer for all the apparel that the company produces. Stunna, was also born and raised in Brooklyn, NYC. Possessing a strong interest for the inner workings of business, company structure, and management, he saw the vision that Ness had and believed in the brand. He decided to become a partner to assist in building the foundation of the company, and make that vision a reality. We relocated to the Tampa area 1 year ago and plan to flourish in our new surroundings by opening our first flagship store. 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road? 

Definitely hasn’t been a smooth road, we started the company with no knowledge of running a business. As time went on, we had to take many steps back to correct paperworks and certain aspects of the business. 

Company Mission Statement: 

R.A.G.S is lifestyle brand derived from our streets, music, culture, sports, and our way of life. “Riches and Good Sex” is the motto. Live RICH, Live FAST, and Live RESPONSIBLY! 

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
We specialize in various types of apparel from t-shirts, socks, sweaters, hats, etc. we also produce luxury leather good like travel bags & wallets. We are proud of how far we have come in the business and look forward to growing. 

What makes you happy?
Seeing people, we don’t know where our clothes. It’s very pleasing to have people enjoy or designs.
