Established in 2009, our mission at F.O.B. Clothing Company is to continuously provide the most stylish and innovative brand of clothing to complement, enhance, and accent an urban lifestyle. We strive to deliver the most creative ideas and concepts to each line of production and design.
F.O.B. is Lowell’s premiere urban t-shirt line and has evolved into a community-driven business catering to the large immigrant population while respectively remaining inclusive to all diversities. Apart from business and behind the acronym, the enthused team wholly coined the ‘F.O.B. squad’, are a group of primarily young leaders actively engrossed in the lively community of Lowell, Massachusetts, supporting local events, organizations, vendors, and fans.
A lot of people have been asking, “What are F.O.B’s – what does F.O.B. stand for?” Well it can mean a lot of things: to us, F.O.B. is basically anything new, fresh, and inventive.
Generally the term is used in a derogatory context towards foreigners and immigrants. Although, we are admittedly just a clothing line, we feel it to be our duty and responsibility to progressively influence the public in a positive effort through the power of art, fashion, and style. Here and now, we’ve come to known F.O.B. as something cool, trendy, beautiful, and positive. We are fully aware of the potential repercussions we may have towards the social identity of the F.O.B. slang and will continue to express our art and creativity with strong moral conviction. We would like to heavily stress that F.O.B. clothing company is in no way exploiting the term F.O.B. or the culture of immigrants to any degree of disrespect.
"One way to view F.O.B is F.un O.vercomes B.igotry. F.O.B Fashion, builds a multicultural solidarity absolutely essential to fostering the diversity-born creativity and innovation which is an engine of progress and a longstanding tradition of the United States."
