About Brooklyn Royalty:
Founded in 2006, Brooklyn Royalty is an NYC-based apparel line inspired by the fiercely independent spirit and highly individual aesthetic of King’s County residents. Created by Bob Bland, a professional menswear designer with experience at Triple Five Soul, Rugby by Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and Banana Republic, the line combines timeless design principles, premium materials and hand-printed graphics that are meant to look and wear better over time.
Brooklyn Royalty’s headquarters are located in The Arsenal, an inclusive cultural event space that doubles as a showroom and fashion laboratory for the local creative community. Built on the foundations of an actual Civil War-era armory, The Arsenal’s recent and subsequent partnership with Brooklyn Royalty has provided the brand with opportunities to exhibit new collections, create collaborations with local artists and host innovative fashion events. These activities and more will continue and become even more fun at our new boutique/bar, Kingdom.
