Roberto Torres, co-founder of Black & Denim Apparel Company, joins Carissa on the Small Businesses Do It Better Show.
“American Inspired, American Made, American Owned” is Black & Denim’s motto, and all of the garments and accessories are made in the U.S. The clothes are high end, and the designs stick closely to Americana themes, including music and the military.
