    When Paige Mycoskie launched 15-year-old fashion brand Aviator Nation, she was looking to solve her own pain point.

    “I was most excited to wear vintage clothing — stuff that was made in the ’70s and early ’80s. And so I found myself looking for clothes at flea markets and thrift stores. But it’s not easy to find good T-shirts from the ’70s,” she said on the latest Glossy Podcast. “I’d spend a whole day looking for one T-shirt. Then it dawned on me: ‘Why don’t I learn how to make this?’ So I started sewing clothes for myself and I taught myself how to screenprint within a couple of weeks.”

    This brand is my absolute dream I’m constantly going through the site making a cart but not going through with it cause I can’t afford it I have 1 t-shirt the charcoal AV basic Tee I got that 2 yrs ago at a marina in my area the only locals Tee was there also but I could only get one, this is the brand I have been searching the style for years looking for a specific basic original vintage sweater I came across similar styles on Pinterest but kept digging and when I saw the sweater I was like OMG OMG I FOUND IT I CANT BELIEVE I ACTUALLY FOUND IT!!! LOL so I punched in the website and then got so upset because the prices I’m actually very depressed that I can’t even afford a T-Shirt and I have 2 jobs. I’m a PSW (personal support worker) and I have my own business selling skin, Hair, and wellness an all vegan selfcare brand gluten free and cruelty free aswell called MONAT #1 Luxury brand global!!! I just started that cause I need the extra money!!! I’m dieing to be able to try and purchase AVIATOR NATION CLOTHING I even wanted the winter coat lol but def couldn’t afford it I would literally o my wear this brand that’s how much I love it!!! Anyways I’m glad I found it maybe one day I can wear and be damn proud!!! Xo
