About Us

OUR PURPOSE 

"From the day you were born you were always taught to “be yourself”. However, you are instantly judged when you do so." Justin Kalnas Co-founder of JTC Apparel 

We are making the name “JERSEY TRASH” a positive lifestyle.  Jersey Trash Clothing is a way of life- inclusive of all who embrace their individuality, are tolerant of others, and see to engage in a world where anything is possible. We are not the only brand within New Jersey that follows this common 'Live Your Life' theme.  Our purpose is to promote those brands to make New Jersey living a lifestyle that could be felt around the world! We encourage you to stand out and live life to its fullest potential, no matter what anyone else has to say about it.  This is YOUR LIFE, YOUR TIME… MAKE IT EPIC!

DEEPER MEANING:

Jersey Trash Clothing was developed in 2004 after witnessing what our family had to do in order to make ends meet with some extra cash. As they sorted through trash, they would scrap what they could for money, recycle, and donate the fixable to charity.  It takes a lot of courage to pick through someone’s trash and they did it- not caring what any passersby would say and always asking permission to rumble through the potential treasure.  They understood the importance of what could be reused and what could be recycled into something greater. Following in our families footsteps, we plan to put a splash of class in the trash!

WHERE DO THE MATERIALS COME FROM? WHO MAKES THE CLOTHES?

All materials within the Jersey Trash/Jersey Life brand are purchased within the United States.  The shirts, hats etc. are printed here in a living room in New Jersey- Jersey Made!

WHAT OTHER BRANDS DO YOU SELL?

Currently we are in negotiations with other clothing brands and artists in New Jersey.
