Simple. Positive. Transparent.
EXV Apparel (Pronounced "X-V") was made for the purpose of practicality and positivity. In a world of chaos, capitalism and millions of options, sometimes its hard to know what to stand for. Our Philosophy is to keep things simple, positive and transparent. Our mission is to provide value above all else, both physically and intellectually. We do this by producing quality garments and usable equipment or accessories to people and also by showing and explaining the process of our products and practices as much as possible. We strive to remain original and stay away from labels and things that may bring about negative bias’s. By keeping things simple, positive and transparent we believe this allows any one person to feel comfortable about what they wear and use. This is our social responsibility to anyone that chooses EXV. Enjoy.
Founded by Alec Lay in southern California. Expand Vastly Apparel was first thought out of pure simplicity. An idea of just a dot (•) So simple. Maybe too simple. So, thought to be too simple then became two letters “XV” and then to differentiate between other brands, eventually “EXV”.
The actual name Expand Vastly came months later when trying to figure out what the brand should stand for. The idea was to create something so general that most anyone could consume the idea of what the brand is, Almost nothing, and what the brand does, Expand Vastly.
"I just wanted to create good quality clothes at the end of the day and didn’t want to be held back by some words put together to mean something. I didn’t want ideas of certain words or pictures to take away from what I was trying to do. Expand Vastly is a true focus on quality made clothes without thought of what that should mean. That’s the idea.”
