About Loyal Army
Loyal Army Clothing was established in late 2005 by designer Brian Dold who wanted to create a new kind of t-shirt company for the Tween fashion market in the US. Together with a short list of creative and driven teammates, the goal was to create a t-shirt that sparks conversation and leaves its mark on the Tween fashion market. With a San Francisco based production facility in place, a well thought out marketing plan and hundreds of ideas for graphics, Loyal Army was launched and has since expanded with development into the Infant, Toddler and Girls 7-16 apparel categories, designing and producing t-shirts, hoodies, fashion knit bodies and an assortment of canvas accessories. The brand has firmly established it's presence as the "go-to" brand for girls of any age with exposure in over 4500 retail outlets worldwide. For more information, visit www.loyalarmy.com
