About

Introduction

We're Míguelo Romano, a state-of-the-art urban men’s designer clothing line born out of the streets of Brooklyn, New York and Medellin, Colombia.

On August 27, 2014 we launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund a tribute to one of Medellin’s most important and influential hip hop artists, Elider Varela, otherwise known as "El Duke".

Though the campaign was not successful, you can find our urban armored clothing collection in our on-line store at MígueloRomano.com.

Thank you to our backers, the media who wrote about our campaign, and to the family of El Duke for lending support to the project.

Risks and challenges

We are developing very specialized, high quality clothing and there are many challenges ahead. From creating the patterns, to cutting, sewing, boxing, customs and design, we aim to create a superior product with the details that you'd expect from a premier brand. That will require time, focus and money.
