EVERYONE HAS AN ORIGIN STORY

this is ours:

The seed for MUNICIPAL was planted in the public playgrounds, fields and blacktops where we all developed our love for sports and competition.

It was there that we started to appreciate how results were determined by the amount of work we put in. And if we were willing to put in the effort, we’d go far. But if we were willing to put in the effort and be part of a community, we’d go further.

That MUNICIPAL mindset has always stayed with co-founders Mark Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson. Mark and Lev have been partners for more than two decades, creating game-changing, well-known content and several businesses together.

AT ITS CORE, MUNICIPAL IS ABOUT THE TRANSFORMATIVE POWER OF SELF-BELIEF

Initially, MUNICIPAL took form in well-known ways; its essence lived in stories of creativity, hustle, character, trusting your instincts and overcoming every obstacle. At its core, MUNICIPAL has always been about the transformative power of self-belief.
 
Then MUNICIPAL really started to come to life.

Mark and Lev noticed that no one was making the kind of clothing people actually need to go anywhere and do everything – gear that was both incredibly versatile and extremely comfortable for Mark and Lev’s own unique and diverse activities. Like you, they spend their days jumping from one thing to the next — from the gym to the basketball courts, meetings and wherever else their busy lives take them. Like most of us, they live out of their cars, backpacks and gym bags. Mark felt particularly strongly that workout gear had gotten so overtly technical there wasn’t much left that was wearable. Several brands, he noticed, could do a thing or two well. But no one company was committed to making the best, most comfortable and adaptable versions of the things we all wear every day.

So Mark and Lev decided to create one.

Founders Mark and Lev

Somewhere along the way, Mark and Lev met Harry Arnett, a guy who had headed up some well-known brands the guys loved. Mark, Lev and Harry wanted MUNICIPAL to change people’s lives by creating a brand that could help everyone become unstoppable. They called their solution Sport Utility Gear — and MUNICIPAL was officially born.
