About Jimmy Sansone
Co-owner, The Normal Brand
A businessman at heart, Jimmy always knew he was destined to succeed even when he was first working out of his parents’ basement. After his own journey to buy a normal shirt led to him making one of his own, people began taking notice of Jimmy’s clothing and asked for orders of their own. He didn’t know anything about supply chains or making clothes but the support of his family and friends drove him to make it happen. Today, despite being the Midwestern underdog in our modern coastal-centric fashion industry, Jimmy and his exceptional team have come together to create a product and a work culture they all truly believe in.
