About Ugly Kid Clothing:

Growing up "Ugly" or "different" isn't easy, but at Ugly Kid Clothing we decided to take something that people see as "ugly" and make it COOL! That’s the whole idea behind Ugly Kid Clothing. When we were kids we hated being called "UGLY" and now its welcomed, appreciated, and viewed as a compliment. We quickly realized that "Nobody Likes Us!" most would take that as a negative.. hahaha not us, we ran like a bat out of hell with that idea, threw it on an shirt and were getting compliments immediately! We take their biggest insults and wear it on our backs every day
“It ain’t easy being UGLY” is our core motto. In other words, “It’s not easy being different!”
