In two short years, Triple Nikel has proven themselves as a contender in the apparel industry. Inspired by the legacy of 555th Parachute Infantry Regiment, Co-Founders and U.S. Army Veterans Ruben Ayala and Chris McPhee share how they are rebranding what “looking like a Veteran” means in our next Vetrepreneur Spotlight.
About Triple Nikel
During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in the summer of 2020, the idea for Triple Nikel was sparked. The founders created an idea based off four simple concepts: Legacy, Community, Music and Love. Each founder started their military careers in the 82nd Airborne Division as paratroopers. It is our common ground to which they derive experiences, motivation and content. Their designs pull inspiration from the Hip Hop culture. Besides the military, a common ground between all the TN founders is Hip Hop. They believe that music is a common thread that binds all people; so that’s why their collections are dedicated to music they love.
