Our Story

The 65 MCMLXV Story


65 MCMLXV is a New York City-based contemporary Men’s and Women’s sportswear collection. Our mission is to help you express your individual style through fashion that is fun, positive and affirming even if you're not a fashionista.

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 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!

Our direct to consumer online strategy is tailor-made for consumers that recognize value and allows us to produce high-quality apparel and pass the savings on to you.

65 MCMLXV is 1965 spelled out in Roman numerals, the year that Juan E. Romero, the Founder and Creative Director was born. Juan is a pop-culture enthusiast and believes that clothes can be both fashionable and affordable and provide a platform for positive self expression.
