About Keez Clothing
The History Behind The Clothing Line
You and I, my friend, are a dying breed. We’re men of style, substance, and class and it’s all about how we walk, talk, and most of all, dress. Women woo us and guys want to be us. You don’t see everyone walking around the streets wearing Louis Vuitton, for one reason… because it’s expensive. But, what if I told you that you can dress like Jay-Z or Daddy Yankee and you won’t look like someone who just bought clothing off the Marshall's rack, but instead had it appear as if it was custom made for your build, that when people look at you, they stare and say, “That guy’s got it made.” Well, it’s been the goal of Morocco Yankee even before he started Keez Clothing.
Watching the stars from his home country, Morocco Yankee always had a dream to design the clothes that the DJ’s and Rappers would wear, but also make something that regular people like you and I can afford. When he came to America, by himself, at age seventeen, he went to high school in New York surrounded by the fashion scene; you can assume that it only powered his dream more.
“The American Dream is what brought me to America” , said Morocco. “It was the reason why I pushed through the rough patched in my life, the reason I sold packs of cigarettes on the bus to make a buck for food! I slept on the streets, but it’s the American Dream that kept me going, the fact that anything is possible in America, it’s why I started Keez Clothing, and it’s why I believe in it so much.” What I learned from the man was that he misses his family in Morocco, but American is his home.
Morocco Yankee didn’t start his brand right out of high school though; he was the victim of multiply blue collar, jobs—ranging from dish-washing to hotel maintenance. “They treated me like I was lesser than them, when I worked as maintenance man in Florida—even more when I was washing dishes—one day I got sick of it and decided to start Keez Clothing, to finally go after my American Dream,” Morocco said.
He started the line with the help of Mike Deco and Carlos Guzman , still works with both of them to this day. He took a year off of work, life, everything to learn the business aspect of the fashion industry. His hard work did more than pay off, it got the attention of some big stars, something Morocco Yankee always aspired for—Busta Rhymes and Ray-J Nicky Jam ,Mya,… in particular. You can now see his clothing line wore by Ray-J on all of his VH1 shows, and now LL Cool J is looking at his stuff. So look for it on Facebook and follow him on Twitter. If you believe in the American Dream, then you’ll love this man’s dream that his intertwined with his styles.
