Our Mission Is To Help You Express Your Individual Style
Do you love standing out from the crowd? Do you love attracting people’s attention?
Do you truly believe that YOU ARE WHAT YOU WEAR?
If the answer to these questions is “Yes!” then you’ve come to the right place. If you’re looking for unique and eye-catching clothing - sportswear that is not only well-made, but gives you so much confidence you KNOW you look your best - then 65 MCMLXV is your brand.
Hi, my name is Juan E. Romero and I am the founder and designer of 65 MCMLXV. 65 MCMLXV is a New York City-based contemporary sportswear collection. My mission is to help you express your individual style through fashion that is fun, positive and affirming even if you're not a fashionista.
65 MCMLXV is 1965 spelled out in Roman numerals, the year that I was born. I believe that clothes can be both fashionable and affordable and provide a platform for positive self-expression.
Today, I feel very confident and comfortable with myself. However, this wasn’t always the case. When I was a boy and throughout my teens, I was very shy and introverted and had trouble expressing my true personality. My self-image was low and I went through a long and difficult struggle with my self esteem.
I grew up with this feeling that I wasn’t expressing the real me. It wasn’t until I was in college and switched my major from Architecture to Fashion Design that I started to come out of my shell. Fashion allowed me to develop my own unique identity and let others instantly discover who I was through the clothing I wore.
When I started realizing that people were paying attention to me because of my style choices, my self-confidence started to grow. And that is where my lifelong love of clothing and fashion began!
Fashion gave me the confidence I needed to be who I am now! My shyness didn’t allow me to see that I was interesting and stylish. Besides, in New York - where I grew up - being hip and having a great sense of style is the norm.
So, my design journey has been a very special one for me. Yes, there are other brands in the market, and there are still many beautiful collections that I like and admire, but my focus was on designing clothing that empowered men and women to feel their very best - to become so confident that they are able to express their own unique style.
The 65 MCMLXV Influence
Most of my customers tell me others have approached them and asked where they can buy that style. Though this makes me happy, I am prouder that I have achieved what I set out to do when started my sportswear line: EMPOWER PEOPLE TO FEEL THEIR BEST! I recognize that we all want to be seen, noticed, admired and valued.
Do you know how empowering it feels to be stopped by a stranger and told how great you look? For every person who stops you to tell you how good you look, there will be many others who are thinking it but don’t have the confidence or familiarity to approach you. Feeling good about who you are is attractive.
Who is the 65 MCMLXV customer? Someone who loves fashion and is looking for a way to express their unique personality through the clothes they wear. They are fun loving and appreciate a witty double entendre or a tongue-in-cheek reference. They want to express themselves in a positive way and show the world that they feel good about themselves.
They are searching for unique, well-crafted items that are in limited supply. Most of all they have a positive outlook on life and don’t take themselves, or the world, too seriously!
If you are ready to experience the 65 MCMLXV Effect, and be a more confident person, then get started, because you can make it happen!

Confidence is simply an attitude. I wish I had known this when I was growing up because it would have saved me from suffering with all my insecurities.
