U.GLY = You Gotta Love Yourself
“The biggest thing about building character is knowing who you are and being comfortable in your own skin. At the risk of sounding cliché, you have to love yourself before anyone else can, so true love begins with yourself. ”
– Mickey Knoxx (the man behind the shirts)
In a world where beauty is dictated by your appearance, U.GLY is bringing it back to who you are on the inside, where your Self resides, bringing Self to the front line. U.GLY brand clothing is about self-esteem, self-awareness, self-preservation and above all, love of oneself. We love this motto that they have inhabited and wanted to share some info. about who they are and what they represent.
The brand’s inspiration is drawn from life and social settings. Everyone wants to be somebody, but nobody understands that it takes self love and knowledge of self to actually be who you think you want to be.
U.GLY is more about a lifestyle and mindset than it is a clothing line. The clothing line is just the physical manifestation of the mantra, “U. Gotta Love Yourself.” U.GLY is involved with community youth groups, and also routinely donates to the Wounded Warrior Foundation.
