We met at the University of Virginia. You can probably guess what we dressed like. From there, we both got into investment banking. We're sure you know that uniform, too. After a while, our paths split. Jeff moved to London with his family. Charles left his job to start a cupcake bakery with his wife, Candace. (It's called Sprinkles. They started a pizza place too, Pizzana.)
In 2015, Jeff and his family moved to LA and we found ourselves coaching our kids' soccer teams. We really didn't have anything to wear. Our schedules were all over the place. We would be in a meeting one minute, and late for soccer practice the next. Our old nine-to-fiver suits had no place on the field. But slick workout gear and technical apparel didn't work for us at work. We needed clothes that worked for us, and all the other guys like us, who wanted to get dressed once, and be ready for pretty much anything.
That’s why we made WILLY. We hope it fits your life.
Charles Nelson and Jeff Sockwell
