Our Creative Journey


Lead By Example Apparel was founded by T.Y Thompson in early 2019 and now operates as a family partnership with T.Y Thompson and KeYonia fully operating every aspect of the business. 

Our mission is to demonstrate how Art, Luxury, and Beauty is wherever life is and promoting accessible luxury. As living and breathing vessels created in Gods image, we are luxury, therefor luxury is everywhere we (humanity) are. 

We portray our vision by being free as Artist creating timeless pieces that reflects our urban roots, unique artistry, and incomparable quality. 

We are based in the great artistic, cultural, and royal city of Baltimore where both owners were born and raised.
