Joey, the owner, founded Nice Menswear in July of 2016. He has been passionate about entrepreneurship since childhood, running lemonade/candy stands in elementary school, beginning to invest in stocks by middle school, and even selling custom manufactured bracelets in high school. Coming from a very low income home, Joey has always been driven to succeed.
During his first year at Oregon State University, he took on a full-time internship opportunity with a residential painting company. Through his success as a first year branch manager intern, he received promotion to district manager after his first summer.
Using this experience, Joey decided to start his own business as a 3rd year student: Nice Menswear.
Aside from running the business, Joey enjoys rock climbing, bowling, and watching shows like Shark Tank. He is also activity involved with a campus ministry group at OSU.
CSO (Chief Sales Officer):
Clay Williams is a freshman at Oregon State University. Growing up in Astoria, he was surrounded by exceptional role models, leaders, and those who put the needs of others before themselves. Growing up and drawing from his sphere of influence, he has always searched for opportunity to work and support others. When Joey approached him asking him to join the Nice Menswear team, he knew this was one of those opportunities that he simply couldn’t pass up.
Throughout high school, Clay was fortunate enough to have various leadership positions presented to him. He became passionate about athletics, student government, the school newspaper, and spending time with his good friends. Clay also umpired Little League Baseball and worked for a local beverage distribution company.
Understanding that he is a rookie in the local fashion industry, Clay hopes to draw upon his past roles and positions to provide the best experience possible for both customers and retailers.
For him, it’s less about the ties and more about who is behind the tie. He intentionally works with designers and retail because he wants to learn their stories. And hopefully, create new ones.
