Vincent Nesi is putting a new fashion spin on an historic American brand in the third phase of his career.
Nesi co-founded Bugle Boy Industries in 1977 and served as president of the company and creative steward of the Bugle Boy brand until his departure in 1995. He then founded Nesi Apparel Group, which developed — and generally let expire — fashion licensing partnerships with such hip-hop luminaries as Eminem (Shady Ltd.) and Jay-Z (Rocawear), adding new takes on existing brands like Mudd and Le Tigre along the way.
