About Us

In 2012 Chad and Laurie met in a bar and realized they both had a love for creating something bigger than themselves. In 2013, they created Modern Envy Apparel and in 2015, they launched the company with the following mission:
PURPOSE AND INTENT
QUALITY OVER QUANTITY

Chad Nakano was born and raised in San Francisco and always had a fascination for colors and patterns. Throughout his life he played sports and had a love for the game, which drove him to create an athletic inspired company. The Seven of Hearts represents San Francisco being 7 x 7 miles and the first seven colors we released.
